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

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.

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.


Edward Ball:

I currently work as a senior member of staff at a large secondary school in Doncaster. My role involves leading on achievement processes and data, KS3 progress leader, Pupil Premium lead and KS2 to KS3 transition. Through my role I am fortunate to visit lots of different schools and hope to keep using my experiences across the schools to bring the best ideas and support to my work with Kellington Primary School.

Before my current school I was a music teacher at Sherburn High School and still have strong links to the area. I am delighted and honoured to be working on behalf of all young people and staff at Kellington Primary School.


Caroline Gilley (Chair)

After taking a career change when my daughter was born, I studied for my PGCE and started working for a FE College back in 1999. I started as a teacher and then a manager managing partnerships with Employers, HEI’s, Secondary and Primary Schools, in worked in several different roles across the education sector for over 20 years. This changed my life; education became both professionally and personally something I have been passionate about and involved in ever since.

Having been part of a Governing Body when my children were small at their Primary School, I thoroughly enjoyed being part of School life as a Parent, Governor Vice Chair, and member of the PTA.

At home I have a large family with young grandchildren which keeps me very busy. In my spare time I try to keep fit walking and cycling. Holidays and eating out are another passion of mine – which unfortunately seem to counterbalance my plans for fitness!

Recently I volunteered and applied to become a Governor and be part of the STAR MAT Local Governing Body to support their high performing schools.

I was introduced to Kellington Primary School and thrilled to have been asked to be Chair of Governors. Inspired by the Teaching Team, their School life, village location, and plans for an exciting future I am really looking forward to working together with the Governors, School Team, and whole community to put in place these new ideas and plans.

Primary School is so important in shaping and developing children to give them a solid foundation to develop confidence, ability, and potential in whatever they wish to be in the future. I aim to help Kellington continue to dedicate to ensuring every child can reach their full potential and succeed.
