We are looking for parent governors. Could you help? Come and speak to Mrs Harper about the role. 

On behalf of the Governing Body, I welcome this opportunity to briefly introduce you to the work the Governors undertake to ensure that your child(ren) will receive a sound primary school education.

The Role of a Governor

School Governors are people from the school/local community who want to make a positive contribution to children’s education. They are elected to serve on the Governing Body for a set period of time.

Governors come from all different backgrounds and all have various knowledge and experience needed to help the Head Teacher make the right decisions for the school. Together they are known as the Governing Body.

The Governing Body meets at least once each term. These are open meetings where parents may attend (except during discussions concerning matters of confidentiality). Notice of the dates, times and agendas of Governors meetings will be placed on the Parents Notice Board.

Governor Profiles

Chair of Governors — Sarah Blackwell – Foundation Governor

I grew up in Thurcroft and continue to live here with my family and have been a parent governor since 2004 when both my children were attending Thurcroft Infant School. I spent many happy hours helping in school and still enjoy coming into school to join the activities, the last activity was being ‘interviewed’ by the School Council.

I am very excited to have been appointed Chair of Governors and am looking forward to the challenge as I feel the experience gained over the years will enable me to take on my new role by continuing to help and support the school to the best of my ability.

Vice Chair of Governors — Margaret Carr – Foundation Governor
I am very pleased to be a governor of this school and especially Vice Chair of the Board as I can continue being involved in school life, after retiring as Learning Mentor and later Teaching Assistant. I enjoy many pastimes, one being going off with my husband in our touring caravan but I am always ready to come back to school to listen to children read or join in the class activities and see the amazing opportunities given to the children.

Lee Parker – Foundation Governor 

I am very excited to have joined the Governing Body of Thurcroft Infant School. As a Year 6 teacher and Maths leader at Laughton Junior and Infant School, I hope to use my skills and experiences to make a positive contribution to the learning at Thurcroft. Not only do I have a passion for teaching, I also have many hobbies that keep me occupied in my spare time: long-distance running, gardening and reading. I also enjoy walking my dog, Kal. When I do visit school please stop to say hello and share your learning with me.
