Governor Information

Meet some of our governors:

Paul Wright - Chair of Governors

Before retiring in 2016 I had been involved in schools for 36 years. I have taught in a number of schools (both mainsteam and special) with the local authority. As a headteacher of three different special schools, over a spread of 16 years, it has been my privilege to work with and serve a number of governing bodies, in developing the ethos, learning opportunities and outcomes for young people, 
I became a governor at Trawden in June 2014 and became Chair of Governors in November 2016. My particular areas of interest are SEND and Behaviour Management. 
Away from governorship, I enjoy the usual range of activities associated with retirement such as gardening, DIY, travel and support local activities found within my own village community. If I have one interest which usually elicits a 'poor you' it is that I still follow Blackpool FC.

 

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.

 

Jane Dunleavey - Co-opted Governor

I became a governor at Trawden Forest in March 2015. I am currently a member of the Curriculum and Pay Review Committees and I am nominated governor for English and Science. I have two children in school in years 3 and 5. Prior to having my children I worked as a Trade Mark Attorney in London and Manchester, and I am now a director of a local business. I became a governor because as well as having an interest in my children's education, I hope to bring another perspective to the board and contribute to the continuing improvement of the school. In my free time, I enjoy running with my dog and have a keen interest in music.

 

Iain Ross - Parent Governor

I became a governor at Trawden Forest Primary School in October 2016. I am currently a vice chair of the Curriculum and on the Pay Review Committees and I am nominated governor for PE and Prevent. I have one child in school in year 2. I became a governor because as well as having an interest in my children's education, I hope to bring another perspective to the board and contribute to the continuing improvement of the school. I have worked in the further education sector as a sport teacher for 9 years and for the last 5 years worked for a leading children’s charity, Barnardo’s. Barnardo's Employment, Training and Skills Yorkshire is a Work Based Learning Provider based in Bradford. From this service we provide learning and skills programmes for young people aged 16-24 including: DfE 16-19 Study Programme, Traineeships, Apprenticeships, including those delivered to our staff team across England and corporately funded employer recruitment programmes.

I have recently been appointed manager of the service at Barnardo's Employment, Training and Skills Yorkshire. We aim to engage, motivate and support young people to achieve qualifications, progress and secure sustained positive destinations such as further education or employment to improve their own life chances and provide a positive future.
