Mr J Lavery (Local Authority Governor) - I am approachable at any time and I am always keen to listen to people’s views and comment on the best way forward for the school. I have lived in Donnington since the early 90s and have been heavily involved in boxing and Scouting. I joined the Parish council and became a Governor to see if I could help today’s youngsters in any way shape or form. I strongly believe that if we look after today’s children then we will have a strong community tomorrow. In addition to Governor I hold the following offices; retary of West Midlands ABA, Member of Telford and Wrekin Sports Commission, Member of Scout fellowship and Councillor representing the Parish of Donnington.
Mrs C Tomlinson - I am a co-opted Governor and have been a member of the Governing Body since November 2020. I have been a teacher for twenty years and am now a Head teacher in a Primary School in Telford and Wrekin. I fully understand the important role Governing Bodies play in the leadership of a school and the challenge and support that is needed.
I can bring the qualities of an experienced educational professional to the governing body and living closely to your local area and working within one very similar, I feel I can offer a great deal of support and strategy.
