Kathryn Russell - Chair of Governors and Co-opted Governor

I have been a governor at this school for 9 years and Chair since December 2013. I joined the Governing Body as a way of giving something back for the support and guidance my daughter received while a pupil at this school. She has now moved on to Axholme Academy but I am still here and I want to use my enthusiasm and commitment to support the school's aims for the future. Every child deserves the maximum opportunity to fulfil their potential and they get that at this school.
I live locally and have worked for a Chemical Manufacturing Company as an Executive PA for over 20 years. I am also a Councillor on Keadby and Althorpe Parish Council. 
There is an increasing expectation on the role of school governance and it is my aim to give the Board clear leadership and direction, to achieve our goals.

Gill Bush - Vice Chair and Co-opted Governor

I have been a school governor at Althorpe and Keadby Primary School for 4 years. I initially joined the Board of Governors as a Local Authority governor before being co-opted onto the reconstituted Board of Governors, where I am currently the Vice Chair. 
I am married, lived in Amcotts for over 40 years with three daughters, all of whom attended this school before continuing their education at North Axholme. My grandchildren are Lucy and Ruby Porter whom I look after while their parents work.

In my working life I was employed as a teacher for 27 years serving on the management team. Also I am the President of the local WI and treasurer at the church. In my spare time I love to read and bake cakes, besides going to the gym regularly.
The recent changes with Ofsted and the role of the governors has brought many challenges and responsibilities, however I am confident that myself working alongside our head teacher, Chair of Governors and the other governors can continue to provide a high quality level of education at this school.

Karl Fenney - LA Governor

I have recently joined the Board of Governors as a Local Authority Governor. 
I moved to the area nearly 3 years ago to work in the local area. I have two sons who have passed through the education process but are still learning.
My working background is in Engineering and Production. My passion is people development and so I'm hoping to support the school in any way I can so that pupils have the ambition to aspire and achieve.
I enjoy travelling and I'm looking to discover parts of the UK I've never been to before. I love the mountains and get into them whenever I can to walk and if I'm really lucky to ski.

Rob Jollands - Co-opted Governor

Sarah Tate - Head Teacher and Staff Governor

As Headteacher of the school, and school governor, I feel priviledged to work with a group of people from varied backgrounds towards the same vision. I appreciate their support, challenge, commitment and involvement, ensuring each child gets the best deal they can in our school. The governors are valuable critical friends, who take their role seriously, supporting the very busy and successful life of our school.

Sue Tyson - Staff Governor

During my time at Althorpe and Keadby Primary School I have taught throughout Key Stages One and Two. As Deputy Headteacher I work closely with a dedicated staff and the governing body. I feel priviledged to work at such a supportive, forward thinking school and really value the work carried out by the Board of Governors.

Bob Bareham - Co-opted

I have been a governor at Althorpe and Keadby for 4 years. After working closely with the school when I worked in Local Government, I wanted to become a governor in order to help in any way I could, and be part of a fantastic educational community.
I have lived in Crowle for 40 years with children and grandchildren living in the Isle. I was a school governor years ago but the responsibilities, roles and expectations have changed considerably since then, for the better I must add.
Any spare time that I may have are taken up with running a classic car, caravaning and gardening.


Alison Clay - Parent Governor

My name is Alison Clay. I have lived in Althorpe for 17 years and was born and brought up in Scunthorpe.
I trained as a nurse at Scunthorpe General Hospital and have now been nursing for 25 years. I presently work for Sheffield Children's Hospital with babies and children.
I am married to John and have one daughter just starting out life at Althorpe and Keadby Primary School. I joined the Board of Governors to learn more about the school and its commitment to the children and the community as a whole.
My interests include music and sport (especially football), outdoor activities and camping holidays.
My commitment to the school as a parent governor is to support and challenge the head teacher and her staff in equal measure. To ensure we as a partnership provide the best possible path through education for the children in order for them to fulfil their potential.
