For all correspondences to the School Governors, please address them to:
Mr J Whiteley
Clerk of Governors
We will then forward all correspondences onwards.
My name is Jayne and I am currently a co-chair and foundation governor 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 it so much!
I am a Department Manager within the higher education sector and hope that my professional skills including budget management and organising will be of benefit in my parent 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.
I have been a part of the Camm’s community for five years, my daughter joined the nursery in September 2018 and is now in Year 4.
I originally joined 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; myself and Lucy Chapman (Parent Governor) both oversee safeguarding in our school, so please do not hesitate to contact either one of us if you have any questions or concerns.
It has been my pleasure and privilege to be a governor at Camm's for the last two years.
In my working life I enjoyed teaching in a range of schools, both primary and secondary, in
mainstream and in special settings, latterly as headteacher.
Governing bodies are central to the effective accountability of schools. Working in partnership with the headteacher, they play an important part in school improvement. Over the years I have worked with many brilliant governors. However, I can honestly say that I have never come across a team of such committed and skilled people, all so very focused on the best outcomes for school.
Working together with a talented group of staff, led by a headteacher who is constantly striving for improvement and who displays a welcoming openness and readiness to accept challenge, we strive for a safe, happy and effective learning environment where every child can succeed.
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.
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!
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.
I have been a teacher for the last 30 years and am the current Y6 teacher at Camms. Amongst my many roles in school are KS2 lead, writing lead, computing lead, history lead, science lead, pupil premium champion, DSL, fire marshal and teacher governor.
Being a 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.
