Pocklington Community Junior School

Governors

School governors are people who want to make a positive contribution to children’s education. Governors are one of the largest volunteer forces in the country and have an important part to play in raising school standards. Our Governors bring their own specialist knowledge and experience to help our school thrive.

I have been a Governor at Pocklington Community Junior School since July 2014. I was Chair of the Teaching and Learning Committee from January 2015 until July 2018 and hold the position of Vice Chair of the Local Governing Board.  Our overall role is to monitor the school development plan and the impact made on the children’s progress and attainment alongside the other Governors and to provide constructive criticism for continued improvement.  My specific areas of responsibility are Special Educational Needs & Disabilities, Pupil Premium and Numeracy. I was a lecturer at the University of Hull from 1990 until my retirement in Autumn 2014. I was a registered nurse until July 2018 and now focus my attention on raising the awareness of Dementia in East Yorkshire as a trustee of Dementia Friendly East Riding charity. I am passionate about standards and education in general, hence the reason I thoroughly enjoy being a governor and am very proud to be associated with the Junior School.

During my working years I have had experience in the education sector including both primary & university level and also worked in a retail community environment. I first worked at a university in the office and then in the Careers Advice department as a PA. My career then took me more into finance and administration for primary schools which has given me a great deal of experience and knowledge of the inner workings of schools and the responsibilities of Governors. In my spare time I enjoy playing tennis and am the Secretary of Pocklington Tennis Club and captained our mixed team recently. I am also an avid cyclist, taking small groups on guided rides and volunteer at the Wednesday Club which is a community project for lonely and isolated people to meet up and go on trips together.

I am delighted to be a newly appointed member of the Governor team at Pocklington Juniors. I am now retired from over 40 years in the nursing profession. I worked within the community and my patients were from newborns through to the very elderly. The world of teaching and children’s learning is very new to me, other than my own children’s education, and I am really keen to try and embrace this new position and help the school in any way I may be able

I have worked as a supplier to education establishments since 2003. In recent years I founded a company that developed software to support the running and administration that takes place in schools. During my working life I’ve volunteered as a community governor at local schools to where I lived in N.E.Lincs, both as primary and secondary, maintained and academy and I’ve liked to keep close to the changing landscape in education. I recently moved to Pocklington having previously lived here for a short time around 10 years ago and fell in love with the area. I now have a 7 year old son that attends Pocklington Junior School and I’m passionate about childhood development. I volunteer as the local scout leader and I am studying psychology / childhood studies through the open university at present. I’ve also worked with the National Association for Special Education Needs & the British Education Suppliers Association supplying services / software to schools to support those with SEND. I’m passionate about providing the best opportunities to all and understanding the additional needs of those with SEND and the gifted & talented. As a parent governor I’m looking forward supporting the school, utilising my experience and applying it from a parents perspective.

My connection to Pocklington Community Junior School began when my twin boys joined in September 2020. In my professional capacity, I work as a fee earner in the Private Client Department, based in Pocklington, for a Yorkshire law firm. I am thrilled to be elected as a Parent Governor and will strive to add a positive contribution to the operations of the school.

How our Governing Body is Structured

All Governors meet half termly. At the governing committee meetings we discuss a range of areas from academic performance to financial and premises managements. Governors are appointed based on the skills and expertise they can bring to the school and as a result of this, governors occasionally take on specific additional responsibilities as and when required.

Getting in Touch

If you wish to get in touch with the governors to compliment the work of the school or pass on a concern or criticism, please pass this through the school office. If the message is confidential, please ensure it is in an envelope marked as such and include your contact details so that the governors can address you directly without needing to ask the school to provide contact details.

Please note, if you wish to make a formal complaint about the school, you must ensure you follow the procedure outlined in the Wolds Learning Partnership’s Complaints Policy In the first instance, the majority of complaints should be raised directly with the Headteacher. Any complaints which cannot be resolved by the Headteacher can then be escalated to the Governing Body.
