Governor Profiles

Jean Wilson - Chair (Co-Opted)

I have been privileged to be Chair of Governors for the last three years. During this time we have seen many improvements. I have been supported by an excellent team of Governors. We continually attend training in order to keep ourselves up to date with all the changes in education. I valued the work of Mrs Thompson but I was part of the group in appointing Mrs Parker as Headteacher and I am sure she will take our school forward. My background was in education and I hope my experience and leadership will help to bring our children the best possible start in their young lives. Kellington School will ensure every child is important and we will work in partnership with our parents and our community.

 

Aaron Lethem (Co-Opted)

 

 

 

 

 

Mr Doug Dubber (Co-Opted)

I joined the Board of Governors in 2016 as a complete novice within the field of Education and, while there remains much still to learn, I have gradually been making progress, now serving as Chair of the Finance Committee.

 

I bring to the role a background in Business Management, having studied the subject and all its finer intricacies from GCSE through to University Degree, before embarking upon a career which has allowed me to develop theoretical skills into practical ones. I hope to transfer these skills and competencies in to the role of School Governor, and to be able to contribute, in conjunction with the rest of Governing Board and teaching staff, towards the continuous improvement of Kellington Primary School as an institute of education.

 

Mrs Sue Summers (Co-Opted)

As a resident of Kellington for over 30 years I have an interest in the children of the area coming to this school and reaching their full potential in whatever that may be.  Having had children and now grandchildren attending the school, I feel that we should all pull together in our various ways to support the school.  I have a background in education as I was a primary teacher for 20 years and am now retired.

Bryony Turford (Co-Opted)

I have been a governor at Kellington Primary School since my son started in Reception 5 years ago. I enjoy the challenge and support we can give our thriving village school and the way we all work together as a team for the future of our young people. Recently, we developed a new vision and values statement which was a great example of the way in which we can co-create something so vital to our shared goals. I was appointed Co-Vice Chair last year and this has allowed me to work to support our Chair and Headteacher even more closely through the development of both a monitoring and an action plan to structure our work. This included introducing our 'Governor on the Gate' initiative which sees one governor welcoming families into school every Friday morning and staying for the celebration assembly. A great way to get to know our school even better.  My work as an independent Primary Science Consultant, primary teacher and a part of the Teaching School team for a local Multi Academy Trust (MAT) allows me to bring my operational experiences to a strategic level.

Mrs Jennifer Mitchell (Parent)

I am a parent governor who also attended Kellington Primary many moons ago! I have been a governor for 1 year now and am thoroughly enjoying working with the staff and pupils. I have worked in many office roles but am now in my second year doing a full time Forensic Psychology Degree and hope to one day work in Offender Rehabilitation.

Gemma Tomlinson (Staff)

I have been a teacher at Kellington Primary School now for 11 years and have had the privilege of teaching all the classes in school. I started as a Newly Qualified Teacher and have been given many opportunities to further my career within this school. I now lead Early Years and Inclusion and am the senior teacher in school and a member of the senior leadership team. This is my second term as a governor, already having served a 4 year term several years ago.

I thoroughly enjoy working at Kellington Primary School, with the children, parents and staff team. 

 

Saray Sayer (Parent Governor)

I am a newly appointed parent governor with a child currently in year 2 so, I have a vested interest in ensuring that the school is a safe and exciting place for all of our children to excel to the best of their abilities. I am a Lecturer at the University of Leeds and was originally trained in and now teach Diagnostic Radiography. I have 16 years experience in teaching within Higher Education and am very aware just how important it is that learners of all ages and abilities have a supportive and dynamic learning environment where they feel safe and valued.

I am looking forward to being part of the team of Governors at Kellington school and working with staff, parents and pupils.
