Profile
Lyndsay Markham 9/9 8/8

It’s a privilege to be involved in the life of our wonderful school, as I believe that an outstanding education within a nurturing school is one of the most important foundations our children can have. I was fortunate to attend good state schools myself, before completing a history degree at Cambridge and later gaining an MA at Bristol.

I work in corporate communications as a freelance consultant and editor, as well as copy-editing books for an academic publisher. I’m also an assessor for the Institute of Internal Communication’s professional diploma, and I sat on the executive boards of the Institute and its European counterpart for 12 years.

Nina Walker N/A 8/8  
Rachel Clark 7/9 7/8 I grew up in Taunton and went to university in Birmingham before I moved back to the West Country.  I have been teaching for over 20 years and have worked in 3 different church schools - the first was in Glastonbury, the second on the outskirts of Taunton and now St Georges.  I was a governor at my previous school and really enjoyed the role so was very pleased to be nominated staff governor by the other members of staff in 2013 I was re-elected in 2017 and look forward to continuing in the role until 23/09/2021

Emma Kellaway 3/9 1/3

I am a mum of two young children, one of which is school age who began her school life in Reception at St Georges Primary back in September 2014.

I have a working history of care and administration in a care setting.

I love the journey both my daughter and I have begun within school life and I would really like the opportunity to support Mrs Medley and her team.

I look forward, if selected, in giving my time and energy to attend meetings and to full fill the post as effectively as I possibly can.

I have traditional values towards family and education whilst embracing new ideas. I feel that children should be nurtured and praised to do their best and that every child has a gift to give.

Colin Welch 8/9 4/8

I have lived in Worle for 14 years after moving from Cornwall with my work. I am married with 3 children, 2 of which currently attend St Georges Church School where I have been a Bath & Wells Multi Academy Trust appointed governor for over 4 years. Within this time I have led on finance and sat on recruitment boards.

 

I am also a governor at Priory Community School Academy. I hope my experience in primary and secondary schools is useful in supporting and challenging the school so that it can deliver the best it can for pupils and staff

 

I bring financial acumen as I have worked for HMRC for over 30 years as a Senior Tax Inspector. I currently manage a technical team in challenging abusive tax avoidance, previously dealing with tax implications undertaken by multi national companies, working with complex calculations and applying the law to established facts. I have also represented HMRC at tribunals and sit on interview panels.

Marina Turner 8/9 1/3

I've children ages six and three who attend St Georges. I've worked as a Clerk to the Governors at Priory School and I've lived within this locality for thirty years. I'm now living within 400m of the school. 

 

I have a Humanities BA (Hons) degree and enjoy managing projects within local government. I organise numerous events, co-ordinate community groups, install play areas and am a qualified play area inspector. 

 

I believe my education and work background has provided me with the relevant skills, experience and knowledge needed for this role. As a family, we believe it's important upholding Christian values.
