 * Relevant business interests of governors and details of any other educational establishments they govern

** Relationships between governors and members of the school staff including spouses, partners and relatives


Publication of Governor's Details and the Register of Interests

There are significant changes being made to the information about Governors published on a school website which schools will have to act on by September 2015.


New legislation

24. Governors hold an important public office and their identity should be known to their school and wider communities. Governing bodies should therefore publish on their website information about their members. The information they should publish should, as a minimum include for each governor:

  • their name;
  • their category of governor;
  • which body appoints them;
  • their term of office;
  • the names of any committees the governor serves on; and
  • Details of any positions of responsibility such as chair or vice-chair of the governing body or a committee of the governing body.

25. Governing bodies should also publish this information for associate members, making clear whether they have voting rights on any of the committees they serve on.

26. From 1 September 2015, governing bodies will be under a duty to publish on their website their register of interests. The register should set out the relevant business interests of governors and details of any other educational establishments they govern. The register should also set out any relationships between governors and members of the school staff including spouses, partners and relatives.

27. Governing bodies should make it clear in their code of conduct that this information will be published on their governors and, where applicable, their associate members. Any governor failing to reveal information to enable the governing body to fulfil their responsibilities may be in breach of the code of conduct and as a result be bringing the governing body into disrepute. In such cases the governing body should consider suspending the governor.

Governor Profiles

Claire Williams - Chair

I was proud to join the Governing Body as a Parent Governor and subsequently became the Chair of Governors in 2018 and am enjoying supporting the staff in their mission and vision for the school's development, whilst ensuring a high level of governance and compliance to local, multi-academy trust and national regulations. I particularly enjoy having the opportunity to visit the school and interact with the children and staff to understand what is important to everyone in making Kellington Primary School a happy and productive place to work and learn. Alongside being a School Governor, I am the Deputy Director of Hull University Business School. 

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 (Vice Chair)

I have been a governor at Kellington Primary School since my son started in Reception. 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.

I qualified as a primary school teacher in 2000 and have worked in a diverse range of schools and taught in all year groups. This role led me to a leadership role supporting other teachers across Leeds since 2004. This aspect of my work continued to grow and I now work as an independent Primary Science Consultant since 2010 and have involvement with a wide range of schools across Yorkshire and the Humber focussed on teacher to teacher support, leading professional development and supporting schools working toward the Primary Science Quality Mark (PSQM). This role has led to an additional part time role at the University of Manchester since 2016 working with in service teachers across Greater Manchester.

I look forward to continuing in my role as Vice Chair of the Local Governing Body with Kellington Primary School as an academy that is a part of the STAR MAT.


Sarah Sayer (Parent Governor)

I am a parent governor with a child currently attending the school and 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 extensive 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 enjoy being part of the team of Governors at Kellington school and working with staff, parents and pupils.

Helen Groot (Clerk to Governors)


Amy Beadnell - Staff Governor

As a teacher at Kellington Primary School I have a vested interest in its day to day running and the safety and security of our pupils. I believe that effective communication between the school, parents, staff, governors and pupils is essential and that governors play a hugely important part in the school community. With my teaching experience and knowledge of the school I believe I can provide this link to support the school. I have experience in my teaching role and also contribute to the wider life of the school - providing trips and extra-curricular activities for our children to enjoy. Being a governor will give me a greater insight of the whole school and therefore improve my role as a middle leader and my teaching practice.
