Governors

Welcome to the Governors section

 

Seahouses Primary School Governing Body 

 

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.

 

 

 

Mr Philip Rolfe - Local Authority Governor

 

I spent most of my working life in the pharmaceutical industry developing and manufacturing pharmaceuticals for human use. In the past I have been a LA Governor at Newminster and Chantry in Morpeth. I joined the Governors at Seahouses Primary in December 2019 and I hope that my scientific background and previous experience of being a Governor will be helpful to the school and Headteacher. 

 

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 Verity Thomson - Parent Governor

My name is Verity Thomson and I have lived in the area all my life.  Both my children have attended Seahouses Primary School.  I am new to this role but felt it was important to contribute to the effective management of the school.  Previous roles have included Nursery Assistant in a private nursery, Careers Advisor and other administrative roles.  I consider myself approachable should parents feel the need to speak to me and will endeavour to support the teaching staff at Seahouses Primary School.

 

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.

 

Miss Vicky Swan Staff Governor

 

I have lived here in Seahouses all of my life and had the pleasure of working at Seahouses Primary School for over 14 years as a Teaching Assistant progressing to qualify as a Higher Level Teaching Assistant. Having attended this school as a child and then my three children after me, I recognise and value the integral role of this school in our local community. I have been part of our rapid journey from a first school to a primary school and then a huge move to a new site. I am very proud to be elected staff governor of this fantastic school.  I passionately believe that all children have the right to a broad and balanced curriculum which provides them with the skills, knowledge and understanding they need to develop into well-rounded, happy individuals and lifelong learners. As a team we strive to achieve this for all of our pupils, encouraging them to be the best they can be.
