Members of the Governing Body

2021/22

 

Mrs Linda Wyatt, Chair

I am a Local Authority Governor and local to the area.
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.

Mr John Perry- Vice Chair

 

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.

Mr Thomas Holdcroft

 

I have recently be elected to join the governing body at Moira Primary School

Originally born and raised in Stoke-on-Trent, my wife Michelle and I moved to South Derbyshire in June 2013, shortly prior to the birth of our daughter, Evie-Rose.

Evie-Rose has attended the school since September 2018. I became a Parent Governor a year later. Having started my career as a freelance sports journalist, I have been a communications professional since 2007. My current position is Head of Marketing and Communications at Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club, based at Trent Bridge.

 

I previously held the role of Media and Communications Manager for Derbyshire Police and have collaborated with charities including the Cricket Derbyshire Foundation, Safe and Sound and the Trent Bridge Community Trust. As a somewhat late developer academically who has gone on to enjoy a successful career, I believe a primary school’s most critical role is shaping the core values of each child in its care, moulding them as people every bit as much as encouraging here-and-now educational attainment. As a sports fanatic with a passion for rugby league (Warrington Wolves) and football (Port Vale) as well as cricket, I am a big believer in the benefits, both in terms of leadership & discipline, as well as exercise, that sport can bring to young lives.

 

I am a habitual 6am riser and self-confessed workaholic, but love nothing more than spending family time with Evie-Rose and Michelle. Watching Evie-Rose develop her own young love of cricket is something that brings me particular joy.
