CROFTON INFANTS’ SCHOOL - Governor Details and Register of Interests

 

From 1 September 2015, governing bodies of local authority maintained schools in England were required to publish on their website their register of interests. This register meets statutory requirements by setting out the relevant business interests of our governors and details of any other educational establishments they govern. The register includes details of any relationships between governors and members of the school staff including spouses, partners and relatives.

Chair of Governors: Mr R MacNair 1

Chair of Governors

I have been on the Governing Body at Crofton Infants' School for approximately 8 years and Chair for over 6.In this time two of my children have passed through the school ( George and Henry) and one still attends (Freddie). For the past few years I have had the privilege of being the main child carer. I have used my spare time to become more involved in School Governance and was recently Chair of the Wakefield Association of School Governors.  More recently I have taken on the role of one of the Directors of Waterton Multi Academy trust of which Crofton Infants' School is now a member.

My varied work experience has involved Cost Accountancy, Supply Chain Management and Insurance Underwriting, until redundancy allowed me to become primary child carer.

In recent months I have set up a procurement consultancy initially specialising in Water Cost Management and reduction.

Co-opted Governor

I am a Geordie by birth but have lived in Yorkshire since 1997. Prior to becoming a vicar I was a lecturer at Chesterfield College for 13 years teaching Media and Performing Arts. Working with students age 16 and over was a pleasure and gave me a good grounding in organisation, curriculum planning and classroom management.

I have been the vicar at both All Saints Church Crofton and St Peter’s Church Warmfield since October 2016 and enjoy the role immensely. I have begun to build up a relationship with all the schools in Crofton and come into Crofton Infants to do assemblies.

In my ‘spare’ time I enjoy holidays with my husband Paul, reading with my cat Rose on my lap and both performing and watching stand-up comedy. I am also mildly obsessed with Harry Potter.

Staff Governor

I have worked at Crofton Infants' School for 9 years as both a Teaching Assistant and a Teacher. As a Teaching Assistant I have worked in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 classes as well as carrying out intervention work. As a Teacher I have covered PPA time across the school.

I have been a governor at Crofton Infants' School for 11 years both as a parent governor and now a staff governor. I am the designated child protection, safeguarding and special needs governor.

I am married with 2 children who attend Crofton Academy and Pontefract New College. I have lived in Crofton for 15 years and know the local community well and many of the people within it.

I enjoy running, walking my dog and spending time with my family. I am currently studying for a Masters Degree in Education which I hope to complete and pass by Christmas.
