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

Our Governing Body 

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. We have a Flat Structure Governing Body, where every Governor attends all of the meetings. The 12 FGB meetings will be held at regular intervals and cover both Strategic and Resources agendas including the school finances, curriculum and teaching standards. This will ensure that all Governors have a full understanding of all aspects of school life. 


We currently have vacancies on our Governing Body and are looking for enthusiastic individuals who have the time and energy to commit to helping us strategically support and oversee Hambledon Primary School.  If you would like further information please contact us on


The Governing Body is made up of the following members:

About Us:


Matthew Frost (P)
Chair of Governors, Resources Lead & Training & Liaison Governor

January 2018 - January 2022, Co-opted Governor appointed by the Governing Body
Maths, Science & PE Lead.

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.


Caroline Crowe (P)
Strategy Lead

October 2019 - October 2023, Co-opted Governor appointed by the Governing Body
English 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.


Lynda De Wolf (PG)

Safeguarding Governor, Health & Safety Governor September 2019 - September 2023

My official name is Lynda de wolf but everyone knows me as Ellie. I am a mother to 10 children - 5 birth children and 5 foster children ranging in age from 33-8 (5 boys and 5 girls !) I have worked in education most of my adult life and in the past owned my own private day nursery in Southampton. I have been a school governor before, when I was fostering a particularly challenging child who attended a special school in Southampton for children with behaviour difficulties and very much enjoyed the role. I enjoy a challenge and look forward to more training as a governor . Hopefully I will be an asset to the team and work my hardest on the role .
