We are really fortunate to have five excellent candidates for the role of parent governor. Tomorrow you will receive a ballot form so that you can cast your vote for your preferred one. As there are two parent governor vacancies you should vote for your two preferred candidates.
Your children will be provided with two forms - one per parent - as all parents have the right to vote. These need to be returned by 10.00am on Wednesday 9th November via the ballot box which will be in the foyer by the office.
You can read about the candidates here to inform your choice:
Brief personal details supplied by candidates
Julia Croft– I am the Director of my own Forensic Psychology practice, working in many different areas of the community to help assess and rehabilitate offenders. I have a high level of compassion and know well how the education system can impact upon someone’s current and future life journey. I am passionate and committed to helping people and will strive to ensure that the school provides the best environment for the children to flourish.
Stephanie Spencer- I have a degree in Youth Justice and have spent the majority of my career in the health and social care sector. I now work for the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham in Safeguarding. I am the Chair of Governors at Radcliffe on Trent Infant and Nursery School, whereby I am also the safeguarding governor. I am keen to use my skillset and experience of both safeguarding and governance to support the governing body of Langar Primary School.
Ceri Wainwright – As an Occupational Therapist, I put others at the centre of what I do. If elected as a school governor, I will have the same caring approach. One where I will do all I can to support the children at Langar. I am passionate about the partnership between home and school, with the primary focus of doing what is best for the children. I feel a happy child learns best so children’s well-being will be a focus of mine.
Katrina Bradley – With 3 children, the school has been a major part of my family’s life for 6 years and will continue to be so for at least another 7 years. I would like this opportunity to become a parent governor to support the school in providing a positive and successful learning environment. I believe my professional experience, as a teacher, would support this role due to my understanding of the education system, the curriculum, special educational needs and safeguarding.
Andrew Bunney- I’d like to apply for the role of governor. I have 2 pupils at the school at the moment. I am currently a deputy headteacher at a 2-19 special school with responsibility for Quality of Education and Personal Development. I am Designated Safeguarding Lead for some of the most vulnerable young people in society. I am also an expert team leader (pupil progression) for our school improvement team across our MAT. I feel my experience, knowledge and passion for developing life chances of young people will benefit Langar school in the next stage of its journey.
