Meet the Governors!

 

Below you will find out more information about each of our school governors.  

 

We operate an LGB without Committees structure. The LGB usually meets twice a short term. The Admissions Sub-Committee, consisting of a minimum of three governors, is convened as required. 

 

The Chair of the Local Governing Board is Susan Jordan.

 

The school is part of the Bath and Wells Multi Academy Trust (BWMAT). Details of the Governance of the BWMAT can be found by following this link to the BWMAT website.

NOTICE OF ELECTION OF PARENT GOVERNOR

I am writing to tell you that there will be two vacancies for parent governor and to invite parents/carers who would like to be a governor to put their names forward for appointment. 

 

If there are more candidates than there are vacancies, there will be an election by secret ballot.

 

The Local Governing Board will be able to hold individual information meetings or telephone calls for any parent interested in standing.  This will include the opportunity to meet the Chair of Governors, Susan Jordan, and other governors via video link.  This meeting will outline the role of a governor, the commitment expected, and you will also be able to ask any questions you have.

 

If you wish to stand for election as a parent governor, you must be proposed by a parent/carer of a pupil registered at the school and the nomination must be seconded by another parent/carer of a pupil registered at the school.  The proposer and seconder should indicate their support for your candidature by signing the nomination form which is attached to this letter.  All nominations should be returned to the Clerk to Governors via the school office by 12.30pm on Thursday 17th December 2020.

 

Each candidate is recommended to submit a brief profile of themselves (up to 100 words) with the nomination form which will be circulated with the voting papers should an election be necessary.

 

Parents of registered pupils at the school are eligible to stand for election for parent governorship when a position becomes available and are elected by other parents at the school.  ‘Parent’ is defined as including “any individual who has or has had parental responsibility for, or cares or has cared for, a child or young person under the age of 18”.

 

 A parent who, at the time of the election, is employed at this school for more than 500 hours in any consecutive 12 month period, is not eligible to be a parent governor. 

 

Yours sincerely

Nina Walker

Profile
Lyndsay Markham 8/8 4/4

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 8/8 4/4

I was born in North London, but brought up in Haworth in Yorkshire. Moving to the Midlands in my early 20’s where I was a management accountant and brought up a family. After I qualified as a teacher in my early 40’s we moved to live near Ely in Cambridgeshire, where I taught and lead in a range of schools, including as Headteacher of another Church school for the Diocese of Ely Multi Academy Trust.

I have been a Headteacher for 8 years and had a range of Leadership roles in both Primary and Secondary schools.

I still see myself as a teacher first and am always eager to be back in the classroom, but I am fortunate as a Headteacher that my passion for education allows me to support others in providing high quality education and care to all members of our school community and beyond.

Rachel Clark 8/8 4/4 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
Angela Hoare 8/8 3/4 I am a Methodist minister covering the Weston-super-Mare area, and I am happy to support the Christian foundation of this school.  I enjoy coming into school, meeting the children and leading worship.  I was previously a qualified teacher in a secondary school for nine years and have three children and four grandchildren.  I am the Pupil Premium and SEND governor and do all I can to support this vital area of work within the school.
Susan Jordan 8/8 4/4 I am a qualified teacher and have taught in a variety of settings and have experience at senior level in primary schools, especially in church schools. Following retirement I qualified as a Gwella (Welsh) Church School Inspector, carrying out inspections for over three years. I am an Associate Advisor for Bath & Wells Diocese and a SIAMS church school inspector. This is my second term of office at St Georges Church School and Nursery.
Anne-Marie Bancroft 6/6 N/A

I am a parent of two children in the school one in year five and one in year one. I am a qualified adult nurse I have a childcare qualification and am studying to become a teaching assistant. I enjoy working with the school to help all our children to achieve the best that they can. As part of my course I am working in the school, so I can get to know the children as well as staff and enjoy working closely with them all to make our school a great place to be for everyone involved in the school.

Young

2/5 N/A  
Grace Rubery 1/3 1/4 I was a teacher for thirty years working in primary schools in London and Essex and in secondary schools in Bristol and Somerset. I was also a hospital teacher and a project manager for the YTS working with children from Social Services and Probation. I feel that I have the experience and knowledge to make a contribution as a governor. I work to uphold and share the values of my Christian faith. Since becoming a Reader in 2000 I have been taking assemblies in local schools. 
Jason Mitchell 3/3 4/4 I have had continuous involvement with the school since 2011 by way of my children attending, and am well known to many of the teachers and staff. I have always endeavored to attend and support all activities and events as often as possible and take an active interest in the school, its management and its place within the community. I look to increase this level of involvement to further support the school and further enhance its ability to offer excellent and happy learning environments to others such as it has afforded my own children.
