Meet some of our governors:

Jon Huggett – co-opted governor

I became a School Governor in June 2014 and am currently on the following committees:

PE, Head Teachers appraisal, HSE, Finance and staffing.

Day to Day I am a Business Manager with direct reports and accountable for a profit and loss account.

As I work within the Oil and Gas sector safety is a key part of my role. I also have a level 1 Football coaching certificate.

I have a daughter in year 4 and am passionate about ensuring that Trawden Forest Primary School continues to be a safe, secure and fun learning environment. My role as a Governor will be as a critical friend to the school and to support and challenge the Head Teacher to ensure the school continues to improve.

Andrew Taylor – co-opted governor

I have served on the governing body since March 2013, initially as a parent governor, with two daughters still at the school, and now as a co-opted governor. Having been a teacher for 10 years in Burnley, I now work for Lancashire County Council as a Teaching and Learning Consultant, primarily focused on improving the teaching of maths in primary schools. As a result of this, I serve on the Standards and Effectiveness committee, and also chair the Curriculum committee.

Mark Gardner  - co-opted governor

I have been a governor at Trawden Forest Primary School for twelve years, firstly as a parent governor, then as co-opted governor. Both my daughters enjoyed their experiences at the school. For the last two years, I have served as Chair of Governors and have relished the challenge of this strategic role. For the last five years I have also been a governor at Park High School as SEND link governor. I work in a Local Authority as a senior officer on the Parks Department. I have served on all the committees in my time here and am currently serving on the Finance and Staffing Committee, the Standards and Effectiveness committee as well as the Pay committee.

Daniel Hunt  - LA

I have been a governor at Trawden Forest Primary School since 2013. Professionally I am from a retail management background where, alongside the daily operation of a large store, I am responsible for delivering budgets, achieving all KPIs and managing employee relations at all levels. I am currently the Vice Chair of the board, serve as Chair of the Staffing & Finance committee and, as training link governor, hold responsibility for all governor training and development.
