Co-opted Governor

Rowlands Gill Primary is at the heart of the community that I live in with my family.  I am keen to help and bring my experience in business and law and know-how gained in governance in the charity sector to the school.  As well as the main Governing Body, I am also part of the Safeguarding and Management Team Appointments sub-committees.

Co-opted Governor

I have recently joined Rowlands Gill Primary School as the Business Manager. My role involves safeguarding, finance and health and safety. I work with various groups in school including the Governors, PTA and Parents. The role is interesting and varied. I have two older children and have been on PTA’s and Parent Forum groups. I feel my role is to assist the school in providing a safe, secure place for all children to learn and thrive to the best of their ability.

Co-opted Governor

I have been a Community Governor for Rowlands Gill Primary School for 3 years.  I have 2 children in the school and I manage the Rowlands Gill Under 5’s and Funky Monkey’s, our breakfast and after school club.  I sit on the Finance, Safeguarding and Health and Safety Committees.  I also help with the schools ‘Anti Bullying’ Campaign.  I am very interested in the future of the school and its pupils, not only because my own children attend the school but because I am priviledged enough to watch many of the pupils grow and develop from a very young age within our toddler setting, all of the way through to Year 6.

Co-opted Governor

I became a Governor because I wanted to support my son’s school and as a teacher I believe that I have the knowledge and skills that are relevant to the role.  I have been a Govenror for nearly a year and have learnt a great deal.  I am part of the Curriculum Committee and have been involved in writing policies, developing an SEN information leaflet and revamping school dinners.  I have also received Governor and Child Protection training.  I look forward to doing what I can to assist the school and represent the parents views over the next few year

Parent Governor

I am a new Parent Governor.  I sit on the Curriculum Monitoring Group and the Foundation Subjects Committee.  My motivation for volunteering to be a Governor is very simple, I have 2 fabulous children, Joseph and Harriet, who really enjoy school and they inspired me to get involved.  I want to support our school in becoming the best it can be in providing well for our pupils

Co-opted Governor

I am a new Governor nominated by Gateshead Council and as well as attending the main Governors meeting, I sit on the Communications sub committee.  As a resident of West Gateshead for the past 20 years, I have been involved in a wide range of community and voluntary activities in the area.  I am also a member of Gateshead Community Network, a voluntary organisation that promotes community engagement.  I work in media production and hope to bring my skills and enthusiasm for children’s education into making Rowlands Gill Primary School an even better place.
Reverend John Barron

Reverend John Barron

Co-opted Governor

My name is John Barron (known as Fr John to the children in school!) I’m the Vicar of High Spen & Rowlands Gill and I look after the churches of St Barnabas (next to Tesco) and St Patrick (on Lintzford Road). Being a school governor is one of the ways that we try to serve the local community as the parish church for everyone who lives, works or goes to school in this local area.
