Governor Vacancies

The school has three Governor vacancies and would be very keen to hear from anyone who may be interested or know of someone who might be (01296 481353). A requirement of these specific Governor categories is that those applying cannot be a direct relative of any child in this school. The skills sets we are ideally looking for are in Human Resources, IT and Finance.

Meet Our Governors

Julie Lawrence

Julie Lawrence

My role on the Governing Body is that of an Associate Governor.
As the Deputy Headteacher I attend all meetings to support the Governors in understanding the many aspects involved in performance of the school. I am able to deputise for the Headteacher if she is unable to attend, ensuring that a representative of the Senior Leadership Team is present at each meeting.
I ensure that information is shared between the Headteacher and Governors to keep everyone abreast of developments.
My main role so far has involved updating the policies which each school is required to have, making sure they contain the necessary information the Government dictates whilst clearly representing the ethos and practices of our school.

I first became a parent governor in 2005 when my eldest child started at Bedgrove Infant School. I have been a member of the governing body since then and have had involvement in all of the committees.

I was Chair of the governing body from 2008-2012, a role I thoroughly enjoyed and one which enabled me to support the school in continuing to develop as an outstanding provider of education. I joined the staff team in 2012 as F1 Manager and am also a member of the Senior Leadership team. Prior to this I worked as an Early Years consultant both independently and for Buckinghamshire Early Years Team.

I have been working at Bedgrove Infant School for 25 years in January 2016. Both
my children came to Bedgrove and loved the whole time they were here. I started
as a mum helper in 1990 then took on a midday supervisor role in 1991. I was
then asked to take a on a job as an LSA as TA's were called then . I was happy
to join such an amazing school and be paid for it. My husband calls it my hobby.
I look forward to meeting the challenge of becoming a Governor at Bedgrove
Infant School.
Mrs Sue Quirk
My name is Sue Quirk and I recently became a co-opted governor at Bedgrove Infant School.
Many years ago I served as a governor at the school I worked in and my children attended and I now find myself serving on the body for the school my granddaughter attends. Things have changed somewhat and I am looking forward to the challenges this role now brings. I aim to fully support the school in every way I can and to help them maintain their Outstanding Ofsted status.
In my working life I am an Education Manager working with Looked After Children, I visit many schools and work alongside a variety of professionals and some amazing young people and I feel that the experience and knowledge I have gained from this will enable me to become a valued member of the team.
Mr Phil Jackson
My name is Philip Jackson and I became a co-opted governor at Bedgrove Infant School in September 2015
I currently have two boys attending the school, the eldest in year 2 and the youngest in year 1. I am a professionally qualified accountant, currently working in catering, but I also have experience in IT and Human Resources. I hope that the school leadership and the Board of Governors can draw on these skills to enable them to continue to run the school efficiently, and maintain the fantastic standards of education that our children currently benefit from.
Mrs Chrissie Green
My name is Chrissie Green, and recently I have become a co opted governor at Bedgrove Infant School.

I have two children at the school within Foundation 1 and Year 2 and after seeing how my daughter has flourished within the school felt that supporting the school as a governor was the next step forward.

In my home life I am currently setting up to childmind until my youngest who is 1 starts school, and have recently completed my degree within Education Studies and Human Geography at Northampton University, with other childcare knowledge, qualifications and experience aim to help the school maintain its outstanding Oftsed status and support the children, staff and parents within the school.

Mrs Daphne McKay
Year Group Manager

Both my children attended BIS and thoroughly enjoyed their time here. I joined the staff at the same time as my eldest child started in F2, first as a parent helper then as a lunchtime supervisor before becoming a TA. I did my teacher training at BIS and was delighted to be offered a job at the school. I have been Year Group Leader in Year 1 and am now doing the same in F2.

Sarah MitchellI’ve recently joined Bedgrove Infant School as a Co opted Governor and this is my first Governor role. I live locally and wanted to give something back and felt that being involved in a school as a Governor would be both rewarding and interesting. I’m the MD of a large Recruitment Agency and have been in recruitment for over 20 years. It’s a fascinating job and uses many skill including HR, Finance, Learning and Development and I hope that these skills can transfer into the Governor role and help to benefit the school.
