As a member of the DHMAT, the efforts of members of the Local Academy Board (Governors) are valued and recognised. We encourage their assistance and acknowledge that many activities and processes would be at risk if it were not for their help.
Mr K Bryant (Chair of the Governing Body): I have been a member of the Governing Body of Ludlow Junior and now Ludlow Primary for several years having close association with both the former Infant and Junior Schools. I am particularly interested in the standard of education we provide so that our children have every opportunity to flourish as adults. I Chair the Standards Committee and have a special interest in the teaching of mathematics and religious education which is about helping our children to live in a diverse society and not about promoting religion.
Mr B Whitmarsh (Vice Chair and Co-opted Governor): I sit on the Standards and Curriculum committee. I'm link governor for the Foundation curriculum and have been a school governor for 8 years. I have had 3 children at the school. Declaration of Interest : Child at the school
Mr N Stephens: I was a teacher at Ludlow County Junior School for most of my teaching career. I left to become Headteacher of a primary school in Shropshire, a post held until retirement from full-time teaching. I am a Methodist local preacher, a councillor on Craven Arms Town Council and an Honorary Alderman for Shropshire. My present link governor roles are Health & Safety and SEND.
Ms D Atkinson: I was elected as a co-opted governor 2 years ago to support the governing body in their financial accountability duties. I am headteacher of Gorsley Goffs Primary School in Ross –on-Wye, Herefordshire and have been in education for 22 years and very much enjoy the challenges! My philosophy is that all children should receive the very best education possible; enabling them to reach their full potential whilst enjoying their learning journey. During my teaching career, I have taught Early Years right through to Year 6 and before joining Gorsley Goffs I was deputy headteacher at a large city school (600 pupils). Over the last three years, I have embraced the new challenges of executive headship as Gorsley Goffs federated with Lea C of E Primary School which has given me the experience to support Ludlow Primary with the amalgamation. I very much enjoy my role as governor and take great delight in seeing the school go from strength to strength.
Ms N Stewardson: I have had children at Ludlow Primary School since 2011 and have always enjoyed helping out where I can, be it on the PTA, listen to children read or helping on school trips. In 2018 I became a parent governor.
I have 3 children who have all started their education at Ludlow Primary from the the age of 2years old, progressing through to year 6.
I have worked for Teme Leisure since 2000 as a Marketing Manager and oversee Swimming and Membership programmes, staffing and customer care. Leisure, Physical Education and generally encouraging children's fitness and well-being is a particular interest of mine. I also sit on the Standards committee and am the linked governor for writing.
