Governing Body

Welcome to our Governors section.

Please find below details of how our Governing Body is structured, a link is also attached with names, categories and terms of appointment for each Governor.  The board represent a range of stakeholders including, parent, staff, community and the local authority

Governors do not manage school this is the role of the Headteacher but they do oversee the development.  The purpose of the Governing Board at our school is to work with staff in supporting school improvement in line with the school vision.

Bramley Vale Primary School Governing Body Table

My name is Margaret Cox and I am lucky enough to be a new Local Authority governor at Bramley Vale. I have worked in education all my life and until relatively recently, as a headteacher in a village primary school. So far, I have been able to visit the school to find out more about the phonics teaching that many of your children will be experiencing. I am very much looking forward to supporting Bramley Vale and its lovely children

Hello, I am Tristan. I am a teaching assistant here at Bramley Vale Primary School.

I have recently taken on the role as staff governor because I care so much about the children, and I always want the best for them. I believe in our school motto ‘Every Child, Every Day’ and I truly think that every child is important. I am looking forward to working alongside the other governors in making sure the children always come first.

I’m Jenny, and my children both attend Bramley Vale Primary School. I joined the Governors in September 2021 as I believe I can help to support the school with my skills and experience gained by running a local business.

I am trained as an home economist and worked in the food industry in Denmark.  I then taught home economics in a Copenhagen school.  I moved on to work for the Danish Ministry as a consultant and inspector for technical colleges.  When I moved back to England I became a councillor which lead me to represent the Governing Body at Bramley Vale School.  I enjoy coming in to school to help at events such as the Easter Bonnet Parade and Mothers Day.

I have been a co-opted governor for 6 years and have enjoyed working with the fabulous team at Bramley Vale Primary. I have worked in human resources in various industries during the past 30 years and also volunteer with the National Trust at Hardwick Hall and Stainsby Mill.

Hello, I have recently joined the school governing body as a co-opted governor.  I have been a governor at four schools in Lincolnshire, and having moved to Chesterfield a couple of years ago I am excited at the opportunity to work with all of the talented people at Bramley Vale.  I have already been in to the school a few times and can see it a great environment in which the children can learn and progress.  I hope I can, in a small way, help the school to continue to improve over the next few years.
