Governor Pen Portraits

Mr Peter Johnson - Chair of Governors 



I have been a governor since July 2019. Before retiring I was the Head of a large Special School in London. I moved to Northumberland in July 2014. I am very supportive of inclusive education, giving every child the opportunity to blossom. I have a masters degree in the education and Psychology of children with special educational needs. I have two grown up children and a grandson born in 2017.


Mrs Rachel Shiel - Parent Governor



Many moons ago I attended Seahouses First School, as did my father before me, so, when my son joined the school five years ago I felt I’d like to contribute and became a Parent Governor.  I’m a storyteller by trade and began that journey as a child at this school, so I feel very passionate about learning and literacy in particular.  This is both a challenging and exciting time for our school and I truly believe that if we all work together our school can be outstanding.   


Mrs Shirley Rutter - Safeguarding Governor



I worked at Seahouses First School for 26 years as Office Manager and I  have represented the school staff on the Governing Body since 1998. My children attended Seahouses First School and now my grandchildren are attending. I have seen huge changes in the way schools operate over my time on the Governing Body, and the challenges now, have never been greater. I truly believe that all children deserve the very best education and as Governors we continue to strive to ensure that is what they get.


Ms Julia Keenan - Teacher Governor 



I’ve been working in education in Northumberland for over 10 years now. I particularly enjoy teaching English.  During my time at Seahouses Primary I have taught across Key Stage 2 and Key stage 1 and currently teach in a mixed year 3 and 4 class. I believe that my role as staff governor gives me the opportunity to bring a different dimension to the discussions in the governance team as well as maintain effective links with the staff voice.
