Hambledon Primary School Governors

Hambledon Primary School has a dedicated and enthusiastic team of governors with representatives from several groups including parents, the community and local authority. The purpose of the group is to help the school deliver the best possible education, by fulfilling the following principle objectives;

 

  • Setting the school’s vision, strategic aims and policies

  • Monitoring and evaluating performance

  • Ensuring the school is accountable to all its stakeholders

Governing Body (2018-19)

We are active in many development areas within the school whilst continuing our role in ‘overseeing’ the school’s progress, monitoring and providing a ‘critical friend’ role to the school as a whole. This involves Full Governing Body meetings (6 per year) and Committee meetings (Personnel / Finance (Resources) and Strategic).

 

There has been a great deal of development and good news at Hambledon recently, and we are very proud of our recent achievements - please read our newsletters, produced at regular intervals to see what we've been up to.

 

We are a friendly Governing Body and welcome open communication from the community - please feel free to contact us for further details (email: governing.body@hambledon.hants.sch.uk).

About Us:

Will Rollinson (PG)

Parent Governor, February 2016 - February 2020
Chair of Governors, Resources Committee member. 

I applied to become a school governor as, like most parents, I have a keen interest in my children’s education and wanted to help maintain the high standards the school is already achieving and futureproof it for the next generation to prosper.  My background is predominantly within the law enforcement community so I bring to the table a broad spectrum of legislative experience which I hope will be of some benefit to the school. 

 

Jane Slatter (p)

Co-opted Governor, May 2018 - May 2022

Deputy Chair of Governors, Communications Lead, Headteacher Panel, Strategy Committee member.

I have two children at Hambledon Primary and have watched the successful transition from a infant school into a primary school. I applied to become a governor as I felt my skills and experience in PR and communications would be of benefit and it would allow me the opportunity to give something back to the school that is providing my children with a great and happy learning environment.

 

Caroline Crowe (p)
Co-opted Governor, October 2015 - October 2019
Chair of Strategy Committee. Music and Humanities Lead.
I have a background in research and communications, transferable skills that I can use to benefit the school across many areas. As a children's author, I can offer help with the school's library provision. I also have an interest in SEN provision.


Matthew Frost (p)
Co-opted Governor, January 2014 - January 2018
Chair of Resources Committee.

Resources and Strategy Committee member. Training and Liason Governor (TLG).

I was interested in the governor role as I wanted be able to put something back into the school where my son is attending and to help, in as much as I can, Hambledon school maintain the wonderful experience for the children who come through its doors.
As an Air Traffic Controller there aren't many skills which cross over into governorship but I hope I bring a strong sense of teamwork, an ability to think clearly under pressure, be able to communicate well and a desire to get actively involved which ultimately led to me stepping up and taking up the role of chair of governors.

 

Kate Buckingham (p)

Co-opted Governor, September 2017 - September 2021

Strategy Committee member.

 

Pat Crew
Co-opted Governor, January 2017 - January 2021

Friends Interoperability Lead, Strategy Committee member, Headteacher Panel.

I am delighted to be associated with our village school as a community governor. I join a long line of earlier governors; who have said that they would like to “put something back” - and this is a sentiment with which I wholeheartedly agree. Our two daughters started their own education in a school exactly like this one – and it prepared them well for life. We now have five grand- daughters; who I could easily have seen loving to learn in this very school - if only they had lived nearby! I have been a governor (elsewhere) before. Various life experiences along the way, including an element of an Open University degree relating to child psychology (which I completed later in life) has brought me to this point and I would now like to serve Hambledon Primary School as an observant, enquiring, supportive and committed team player.

 

Tim Shaw (LA)
Co-opted Governor, November 2016 - November 2020
Strategy Committee member, 
Pay Committee member

Having moved to Hambledon in 2017 to be closer to the grandchildren and hopefully play a more meaningful role in their upbringing, I also wanted to contribute something to the community. I have an interest in education and for the last 7 years before retiring, was a clerk to governors at a number of different infant, junior and primary schools in Gloucester. I hope that experience will enable me to make a positive contribution to the continuing development and success of Hambledon Primary School.

 

Jan Jarvie
Co-opted Governor, November 2016 - November 2020

James Brighton (p)

Co-opted Governor, January 2019 - January 2023

Resources Committee member, Pay Committee.
