Governor Profiles

Claire Williams - Chair

I am proud to have joined the Governing Body as a Parent Governor and am looking forward to supporting the staff in their mission and vision for the school's development, whilst ensuring a high level of governance and compliance to local and national regulations. Alongside being a School Governor, I am an Associate Dean at the University of Hull within the Faculty of Business, Law and Politics.

Mrs Sue Summers (Co-Opted)

As a resident of Kellington for over 30 years I have an interest in the children of the area coming to this school and reaching their full potential in whatever that may be.  Having had children and now grandchildren attending the school, I feel that we should all pull together in our various ways to support the school.  I have a background in education as I was a primary teacher for 20 years and am now retired.

Bryony Turford (Vice Chair)

I have been a governor at Kellington Primary School since my son started in Reception 5 years ago. I enjoy the challenge and support we can give our thriving village school and the way we all work together as a team for the future of our young people. Recently, we developed a new vision and values statement which was a great example of the way in which we can co-create something so vital to our shared goals. I was appointed Co-Vice Chair last year and this has allowed me to work to support our Chair and Headteacher even more closely through the development of both a monitoring and an action plan to structure our work. This included introducing our 'Governor on the Gate' initiative which sees one governor welcoming families into school every Friday morning and staying for the celebration assembly. A great way to get to know our school even better.  My work as an independent Primary Science Consultant, primary teacher and a part of the Teaching School team for a local Multi Academy Trust (MAT) allows me to bring my operational experiences to a strategic level.

Sarah Sayer (Parent Governor)

I am a newly appointed parent governor with a child currently in year 2 so, I have a vested interest in ensuring that the school is a safe and exciting place for all of our children to excel to the best of their abilities. I am a Lecturer at the University of Leeds and was originally trained in and now teach Diagnostic Radiography. I have 16 years experience in teaching within Higher Education and am very aware just how important it is that learners of all ages and abilities have a supportive and dynamic learning environment where they feel safe and valued.

I am looking forward to being part of the team of Governors at Kellington school and working with staff, parents and pupils.

Amy Beadnell - Staff Governor

As a teacher at Kellington Primary School I have a vested interest in its day to day running and the safety and security of our pupils. I believe that effective communication between the school, parents, staff, governors and pupils is essential and that governors play a hugely important part in the school community. With my teaching experience and knowledge of the school I believe I can provide this link to support the school. I have experience in my teaching role and also contribute to the wider life of the school - providing trips and extra-curricular activities for our children to enjoy. Being a governor will give me a greater insight of the whole school and therefore improve my role as a middle leader and my teaching practice.
