All Governors have signed a Declaration of Personal Interest form, and currently none of them, or anyone close or a blood relation has a significant interest in organisation(s) that may supply goods or services to the school.
All of our Governors join us for a four year term and are committed to working with our school to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our children. None of our current governors have any other connection with our school, other than our parent governors, and are not related to any members of staff.
I have been a governor for Brant Broughton School for several years now and Chair for almost 3 years. I am also on the board of governors for North Kesteven School.
I value the wealth of knowledge and experience gained as a governor in secondary as well as primary education. As a governor, experience has enabled me to approach and undertake responsibilities with an awareness that benefits the education of all children and the school.
I live in Brant Broughton, am married to Peter and have three daughters, each of whom attended the school and progressed to university.
I have a Fellowship of the HCIMA, and Certificate in Education which have paved the road for a career as a lecturer, teacher in higher, further and secondary education. Being a Member of the Chartered Institute of Educational Assessors has enabled me to maintain a fervent interest in the quality of teaching, learning and assessment as a moderator, assessor and examiner.
Since retiring, my spare time has been spent as a volunteer at Lincoln County Hospital, where I am also a Trust Board Member. Spending time with the family, enjoying the great outdoors and gardening is also very gratifying.
'I am the Foundation Governor representing St. Helen's Church, where I am Churchwarden. I am also an Authorised Lay Minister within our group of parishes. I serve as secretary of an organisation called Lincs Friends, which raises money for Lincolnshire based charities. For twenty years until taking early retirement I worked at Lincoln Cathedral'.
We have a vacancy for our Methodist Church governor
Matthew was elected as parent governor in December 2015 and sits on the Finance Committee. He lives in Beckingham, is married to Rachel and has a son and daughter who currently attend the school.
Matthew has a BSc (Hons) in Land Management and is a Chartered Surveyor. He works for a national surveying practice based in London; and has a wealth of experience in employee relations, financial analysis and business management which he brings to his role of parent governor. Matthew has a particular interest in ensuring the best utilisation of the school’s resources to improve the childrens’ learning ability. When not working or governing Matthew is busy running after his children; or in a rare quiet moment, enjoying a spot of gardening and playing squash.
Rachael joined our school as our Reception (Polar Bears) teacher in September 2010 and joined our governing body in September 2016. She is also our SENCO.
Rachael has three daughters, two who are currently at the school and works four days out of the five.
Curriculum and Personnel Committee
I am one of the Co-opted Governors for the school. I have 2 children, aged 14 and 12, both of whom attended Brant Broughton Primary School from 4- 11 years, where they were happy and successful. They have subsequently made a smooth transition to Secondary schools. I have worked for the NHS as Clinical Psychologist for almost 30 years. I hope that my personal and professional experience bring useful skills and knowledge to the Governing body and I am pleased to represent your views.
I was a Principal Adviser with CfBT Lincolnshire School Improvement Service and I co-ordinated training and support to headteachers, deputy headteachers and senior managers. I also had strategic responsibility for the Birth to Five Service in Lincolnshire.
Prior to working with the Local Authority, I had substantial management experience in primary schools as a teacher, deputy headteacher, acting headteacher and headteacher and I spent a year at Nottingham University, where I completed a research project into headteachers in their first appointments.
My varied roles included Head of Primary Assessment Team for Lincolnshire, Primary Adviser, Link Inspector, Senior Inspector. I am an accredited Ofsted Inspector and was a School Improvement Partner.
Since retirement, I have become a National Trust Volunteer at Belton House, I work part time as an education consultant managing a team of advisors who monitor the educational provision of children who are home educated, I am vice chair of the Parish Council and I enjoy gardening, my dogs and reading.
