Members of the Governing Body

September 2017

 

Mr John Perry, Chair of Governors

 

I moved to Moira in 2002, I have two boys who both attended Moira Primary School. I have been a Governor at Moira since 2009 where I was part of the group who were instrumental in getting it changed from a infant school to a primary school. It has been a great pleasure to watch the school develop to what it is today.

I am also a Town Councillor for Ashby Woulds Town Council where at present I am Deputy Mayor, as I am a Governor at Moira I am the representative for the school on the Town Council so this gives me the opportunity to report to the council on how the school is progressing or to seek help if there are any problems the school may be encountering that the Council may be able to help with.

I come into school usual every two weeks to have a meeting with Mrs Hambleton, usually to see how the school is going and if there are any issue's but sometimes I get to walk around the school and look at the lovely display's and how all the children are progressing by looking through their work.

With my job, being a governor and town council roles as you can imagine I am a very busy person, however I always find time to watch my boys play football, for myself I like to go out on my bike or go and spend a couple of hours in the gym.

Mrs Karen Hambleton

 

I have been in education for 20 years having responsibility for a wide variety of areas from Health and Safety to Teaching and Learning, Assessment to Special Educational Needs, Finance to Professional development to name but a few. There is something very special about developing a learning environment that promotes well being, achievement and high aspirations for our young children where they can progress and blossom into citizens of the future...that is what drew me to education in the first place and ultimately headship. It is crucial as a community we learn from each other, share a collective vision, question and challenge and always aspire to be the best we can be, and to do this with good grace, humility and humour! This is my philosophy not just for education but for life and I look forward to working with many more stakeholders in the future; pupils, parents, governors, friends, the wider community, to ensure that our children have the start in life they deserve, a love of learning and a zest for life.

Mrs Linda Wyatt, Vice Chair

 

I have been a Governor at Moira Primary School for three years as the Local Authority Governor.
I grew up in Derby and after gaining my degree, I moved to Ashby to work for United Biscuits in their Research Department. I trained to be a teacher in Further Education after I had married and started a family. I worked at Burton College in various roles for over 20 years before moving to my current position as CEO of an Awarding Organisation. Whilst working at the college, I was able to make sure that young people and adults were able to have a second chance to gain the qualifications needed to build a career. The key to success in education is building a solid foundation during the primary school years so I am delighted to be able to be involved with the school and share my experience and expertise.
I am the SEN link Governor and Chair of the Performance and Standards Committee.

Mrs Laura Smith

 

I am an Inclusion Manager at a primary school in Derby and have worked in education for the last five years. I began my career teaching Year 5 and 6 children at a primary school in Burton, becoming a maths specialist teacher and specialist leader in education. In this role, I have had the privilege of working to support and deliver training to a range of primary schools and teaching colleagues, particularly in developing maths provision. I am also a qualified SENCo and in my current role have responsibilities for children with SEND, behaviour and safeguarding. I hope to put these skills to use as part of the governing body to continuously support the vision and future of Moira Primary School.

In my life outside of schools, I am a keen runner and love taking part in productions with ‘The Burton Musical Theatre Company’.

Mrs Laura Parker

I have been a parent Governor at Moira since September 2015. Both of my children attend Moira Primary School and when the position arose to become a Governor I successfully applied. I wanted to have the chance to become as involved in school life as possible, being able to understand how and why the school runs and also being able to be involved in that was really important to me. 

I am currently sitting on the PSC (Performance, Standards and Curriculum) committee  and the Performance Review Committee. I am linked to Year 3 and my associated subjects are Religions Education and IT. 
I love being a part of the team at Moira Primary School, and coming in and seeing how well all the children are doing and what super young adults they are when they leave the school. When I am not at school or looking after my girls, I help run my husbands business and I really enjoy cooking.

I live in Moira with my family and both our children attend Moira Primary School, as my son is now in year six I have seen the school grow from an infant into a primary school and I now as a parent governor enjoy working with the school and seeing how the school is turning our children into well rounded people.  
At work I am the Managing Director of an engineering business that manufactures crash barriers for the UK roads and global markets based near Wolverhampton.  
As a governor I am linked with Year 4 and Creative (music, art and DT), as part of this it is really interesting to be able to come into school and see the work the children are doing, and I also sit on the Health and Safety committee.

Mr Simon Arnold

I have been a parent Governor at Moira since 2016. Our son has been at Moira since 2015 and our daughter is due to start in the Autumn 2018. 
I’m proud to be part of a very good school with a clear direction and drive to help children achieve their best. As a parent it’s good to see so many events and activities that we can get involved in. 
My job takes me away a lot so my home time is very precious. In my spare time I enjoy walking, cycling and photography. I have recently started learning the guitar too.

Mrs Lindsay Pitt

 

I qualified as a teacher in 2006 and taught in KS1 at a local school, before moving to Derby and teaching Reception in 2009. During this time, I became head of Early Years and went on to teach in Pre-school. After my first child was born in 2013 I became Assistant Head Teacher and had responsibility for SEND across KS1 and the EYFS. In this role, I line managed a number of both teaching and non-teaching staff and worked with the school governors on numerous committees including, SEND, Health and Safety and Building, Grounds and Maintenance. I was also involved in the development of a brand new Infant and Nursery building. Since then, I have had another child and decided to take some time to concentrate of my young family. I now work 2 days a week in a year 2 class and I am very much enjoying this busy time, raising my young children and being a class teacher! I became a Parent Governor here at Moira in 2017 after my son started in Reception. I hope to utilise the skills and experiences I have acquired over my career to support the school in becoming the best it can be! I enjoy spending my precious free time discovering new places, walking with my family and shopping!
