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.
