Meet the Governors

The Governors at Kingsway challenge and support the school in providing the best possible education for our children.  This happens at regular meetings and also when governors visit to see school life for themselves.

A variety of people become governors.  Some work for, or are connected to, the Local Authority, some come from the local community, some work on the Kingsway staff and some are Parent Governors. 


Minutes of Full Governing Body Meetings are available for everybody to view.

Andy Roughton – Local Authority Governor

I joined the Kingsway Governing Body in March 2014 as a Local Authority Governor. I have had the privilege to be Chair of Governors (October 2015 - March 2017) and before then I served on various committees and was Vice Chair of the Resources Committee. Having worked in schools and education for over forty years as both Senior Manager and teacher trainer, my ambition is for every child to fulfil their potential in a caring, safe and happy environment. I will do my best to help our school overcome its current challenges, ensuring that the children have the best possible education and life opportunities.

 

Sophie Finch – Staff Governor

I became a staff governor in 2016 as I was keen to be involved in the wider aspects of decision-making for our school. I am extremely proud of our school and I enjoy using my knowledge of our pupils’ daily lives to help the governors make decisions about the future of Kingsway. I am also one of the Designated Safeguarding Leads and this allows me to be involved in ensuring our children have the safe and secure environment they need in which to grow and learn.

 

Being a class teacher at the school since 2015 has given me a unique insight into the development of the school. As a governor I am more able to help shape the lives of the many children who embrace learning in school. As a parent myself, it gives me a different perspective on children and their welfare and my position at Kingsway enables me to instil crucial life skills in the children that pass through our doors.
