Meet the Governors

Welcome to our governors' section. To contact any of our school governors, please do so via the school office, or email admin@broughton.hants.sch.uk.

What governors do

Governors are strategic leaders within schools and have a vital role to play in making sure every child gets the best possible education

The role of the school governor is demanding but very rewarding and is a great way to give back to your local community. Good schools need good governors.

 

The role of the school governor

Governing bodies have a strong focus on three core strategic functions:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and direction
  • Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of the staff
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent

 

Each individual governor is a member of a governing body and all decisions are the joint responsibility of the governing body. 

 

The Governing Body consists of the Headteacher,  Parent Governors (elected by the parents), Staff Governors, Co-opted Governors and one Governor appointed by the LA.

Our Governing Body

Who's Who

Derek is a co-opted governor, appointed in 2018.  He is a regular volunteer reader with children at the school, and is also a resident of the village.  He works as a writer and editor and has previously assisted with adult literacy provision in the Winchester area. He is also a mentor to aspirant students at a 6th form College in Hampshire, pursuing their ambitions to go to leading universities.

 

Mrs. Louise Payne

Louise joined the Governing Body as a Parent Governor when her eldest son started school in 2010.  She wanted to learn more about the school, it's culture, values and ethos and how the pupils performed across the curriculum including sport, music and the arts. Now in her third term of office she has been involved with most aspects of school life, and recently stepped down as Chair of Governors.  She is currently the Lead Governor for the Curriculum and also our Parent Liaison Governor.  Should you wish to get in touch with Louise please contact the school office: adminoffice@broughton.hants.sch.uk. 

 

Mr. Alan Elsey

Alan joined the Governing Body in 2012 as a Parent Governor. 

"Having children at the school, I was very keen to get involved and try to help the school achieve its full potential, via the pupils achieving theirs.  It is rewarding to work within a school environment that has a strong sense of community and is continually looking to further enhance this.

 

Mrs. Deborah Martin (Developing Training Governor)

Deborah is a Local Authority Governor appointed March 2013. She is an accredited Autism Ambassador and on the Standards committee.  She worked overseas for approximately 25 years. During this time I was on the Management team for finance and planning, budgeting and purchasing and was involved in the setting up of Dubai Duty Free and Hong Kong Duty Free.  My four children were all born in Hong Kong and I have an interest in Education and the continual challenging changes.

 

Mr. David Reynolds

David became a Co-opted governor in 2014. Some 20 or so years before that, his children attended the school and received an excellent education. He's pleased that he can help to further a good-quality education for the school's current pupils. David is a member of the Standards committee. In his working life, he was involved in writing and the teaching of writing skills and he is now the link governor for English. He also spends an afternoon a week helping with reading in years 1 & 2.

Mr. James Turner

James joined the governing body as a  co-opted governor in 2016 and is now an associate Governor.

"The reason I joined as a governor was because I wanted to use my life skills to support and help grow an already successful school. My two girls have received a great start in life due to the holistic approach to education they have received at the school. I want to help the school maintain their high standards for children lucky enough to attend Broughton School."
