Stuart Smith (Chair of Governors)

I have lived in Wold Newton for almost 20 years, both my children attended Wold Newton school and thoroughly enjoyed their time there.  My wife Janet also works at the school.  Currently, I am Vice Chair of Governors and greatly enjoy visiting the school and spending time with pupils and staff. 

 

Alison Blyth (Vice Chair of Governors)
I am a mum of three boys and have worked with children from 6wks to 13yrs for the past 30+ years in many different settings and from all backgrounds. I am extremely passionate that all children should reach their potential and enjoy supporting school to achieve this. My role as a governor consists of SEN, EYFS, interviewing and helping within the class rooms when requested.

 

Elke Fraser (Safeguarding Governor)
Mrs Fraser has got two children at Wold Newton Foundation School. 

She works as a clinical pharmacist in a GP surgery.  Part of her responsibilities at the school is to assist as safeguarding governor. Mrs Fraser is passionate about all of the children at Wold Newton to be safe, to blossom in their different abilities and to be challenged to go further. 

 

Charlie Marshall (Health and Safety Governor)
I have grown up in the area and attended Wold Newton as a pupil. I am a retired Police Officer, having spent over 30 years working in a wide range of different roles and departments and spent the last ten years of service training new operational Police Officers and PCSO's.  One of my roles is to oversee matters relating to Health and Safety and this includes trips off site.
Both my youngest sons attend the school and have always enjoyed their time there. Wold Newton is a very welcoming school and the children are always encouraged to look after each other and develop themselves. I greatly value the school, the tremendous staff and the children who are fortunate enough to spend their younger years there. 
 
Julie Ibson (Staff Governor)

I am a Nursery Nurse and Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA). My previous work experience as a teaching assistant was in Wetherby West Yorkshire and then at Gembling Primary school where I acquired the qualifications of HLTA and Nursery Nurse. Since 2013 I have had the pleasure of working in the foundation stage unit at Wold Newton Foundation School.

I work with children aged three to five years old. I support them in many ways from social and emotional wellbeing to educational interaction, as well as nurture and care.

I strongly believe that the Nursery and Reception stages of education are vital in building the foundations to a successful education.
