GOVERNORS OF DEEPING ST JAMES COMMUNITY PRIMARY SCHOOL

 

Danny Knight (Co-opted Governor) I am a parent Governor who has two daughters attending the school. I am 36 & have lived in Deeping all my life. My Father & Uncle were teachers at the school when it opened & my brother, sister along with myself were all pupils at the school. I now manage a firm within the private sector & in my spare time enjoy watching or attempting to play a varied amount of sports. Being a governor is very rewarding & interesting. Decisions & views are always made with the best interests of the school at heart. I am committed to helping to make the school the best Primary School in the area.

Tamarra Allen (Co-opted Governor) I became a parent governor in September 2011 & currently have 3 children at the school. At the moment I am a full time mum, but I previously worked for 15 years as a primary school teacher, working mostly in early years. I am now the Early Years Foundation Stage governor and volunteer regularily in reception class. Being available during the school day has given me the opportunity to join in many of the experiences the school creates to enrich the curriculum for all children. I am a member of the curriculum & standards committee and the curriculum group responsible for monitoring English, R.E. Humanities and French. I am also a member of the Jimmy D's committee and the link governor for Jimmy D's as well as a member of the headteachers performance management review panel and the governors leadership and management group.

 

 

Graham Lyden (Parent Governor) I have lived in the Deepings for the past 20 years and currently have two daughters who attend DSJ school. I have been a governor since July 2013 and became a governor as I wanted to get more involved with the school and wanted to understand how a school functions on a practical day to day basis.  My experience as a governor so far has been really positive and I have learnt a lot, but know there is still a lot more to understand

Jim Thody (Co-opted Governor) I have lived in the Deepings for 20 years, my two daughers were pupils at the school in the 1990's and I was a parent governor at this time. I became a community governor in July 2012 to offer my experience in pastoral leadership, stategic planning, coaching and mentoring, to serve the school again. I am a member of the curriculum group responsible for Maths and Science.

Sarah Young (Co-opted Governor) I was elected as a staff governor in February 2012 and am a member of the curriculum group responsible for PE/ART/DT/PSHE and ICT. I became a co-opted governor under when the governing body undertook its reconctitution in 2015.
