A Bit About the Governors



Jayne Winter

My name is Jayne and I am one of the Co-Chairs of Governors and Foundation Governors at Camm's, having originally joined the governing body as a Parent Governor in 2019.


My son has attended Camm's since he joined nursery in 2018 and enjoys being at Camm's.


I am a Department Manager within the higher education sector and use my professional skills and experience including HR, H&S, GDPR and administration and budget management to support my governor role.


I am passionate about children learning and developing and feel it is important for them to reach their full potential.


It is a pleasure and a privilege to be part of the school’s governing board, working with such committed people. If you have any questions please get in touch.


David Sharp

Hello Everyone!  My name is David and I’m one of the co-chairs of Governors. I help lead one of the local Churches and have a passion to see the community support each other.


As part of my role as a Governor and wider roles, I spend a lot of time in schools, mostly at Camm's but also at other schools across the area. This means I get the opportunity to lead collective worship, help in lessons and generally be a friendly face around school. I love seeing the children grow and firmly support the school's vision that every child succeeds. I hope that in supporting the teachers, challenging its leaders and serving the school in any way I can we can create the best possible environment for children to learn and be cared for. Camm's is a fantastic school, with great teachers who it is a joy to support.


It is a privilege to be a part of the Camm's family and serve alongside a very strong group of Governors. 


Laura Burgin

I have been a part of the Camm’s community for several years, ever since my daughter joined the nursery in 2018. 


I started out as a Parent Governor but in 2023 I became the Local Authority Governor for the School. It is a real privilege to be in this role and work closely with the teaching staff and Governing Body to contribute and make a difference to our children’s futures.  


I have a background in Human Resources, with extensive experience in learning & development, which links nicely to my role in School.


It is imperative that all children have the opportunity to prepare themselves for the future - academically, emotionally, and socially – here at Camm’s we aim to ensure a safe, happy and effective learning environment where every child can succeed.  


All members of the Governing Board have areas of the school in which they take a specific responsibility for; David Sharp (Co-chair) and I are responsible for the Personal Development of our pupils and staff. Please do not hesitate to contact either one of us if you have any questions or concerns relating to this. 


Tim Cocking

Many of you know me from the day-to-day role of headteacher - either from chatting on the playground, school-gate, coffee-mornings and more recently at parents' evening.  It is a part of the job that I value as the regular, personal contact with parents helps to iron-out concerns before they become issues, and also to talk about how great your kids are!


As headteacher, I have another 'hat' as Governor.  This requires me to keep the whole of the Governing Body updated as to the status and direction of the school, and be there to answer challenging questions.


I know that both roles run along the common thread of ensuring that I, as school leader, do everything possible to improve the lives of the children within school, and that all decisions are child-centered.  Even though some might not always be popular, they are done with this philosophy at heart.


Liz Hagan

Hi everyone my name is Liz Hagan and I am a Foundation Governor at Camm's.

I taught in local primary schools for over 30 years and have a keen interest in seeing children get the best education possible in a caring, supportive environment. I am really enjoying getting to know the school and helping with collective worship.

With my husband, I lead the Eckington congregation of the Oaks Community Church, based at the Friendship Hall. As well as running the Acorns toddler group there, I lead a family service on 3rd Sunday of each month and holiday clubs - look out for our adverts!


Tori Lister


I am a Foundation Governor at Camm's.


In a previous life I had a lot of involvement with financial management and I am currently studying to become a teacher so hope I will be able to bring both business and education skills to the governing body. I have specific responsibility for overseeing the SEN aspects of the school, with Mr Blake the school's SENCo.



Barry Hill

I have been a teacher for the last 30 years and am the current Y6 teacher at Camm's. Amongst my many roles in school are KS2 Lead,  Writing Lead, Computing Lead, History Lead, Science Lead, Pupil Premium Champion, ADSL, Fire Marshal and Teacher Governor.


Being the teacher representative on the governing body is immensely rewarding and a role which allows me to support the headteacher in keeping the governors updated as to the current status of the school.


Lucy Chapman

Hi, I’m Lucy, and I am a parent safeguarding governor.  My daughter started in reception in 2023 and I was appointed as a Parent Governor in December 2023. I am impressed by what I have seen of the school so far. 


As a safeguarding governor, I hope to work with the school in order to enhance standards and create a nurturing and successful environment for every child at the school. I believe that my professional background in safeguarding children equips me with valuable skills and insights which will hopefully benefit the school when addressing issues related to child welfare. 


If you have any concerns or questions regarding safeguarding please feel free to contact myself or Tori Lister who is also a safeguarding governor.
