The Governing Body

Governors are elected and appointed by particular groups to ensure that different stakeholders have a voice. The Governors meet regularly, act as a team and tackle issues together. An important part of their role is to ensure that the school is providing quality education for all children and to keep under review the way the school is developing.

The Governing Body is made up of 5 Parent Governors, 1 Staff Governors, 6 Co-opted Governors, 1 appointed by the Authority and the headteacher. Other members of staff may be invited to attend meetings of the Governing Body to give reports or as observers. The term of office for our Governors is 4 years.

I have lived in the village of South Normanton since 1980. My son attended Glebe school which was when I was approached to become a parent governor. I have since served on the Glebe governing body for 24years in varying different roles, and for a period I also served as a governor at Frederick Gent School. Now retired after 44years at BT I find I can devote more time to the needs of the school in my current role as chair of governors.

I was born in Leabrooks but have lived in South Normanton since 1966. Our children and grandchildren have all attended the village schools. I taught Science for 37 years at Tupton Hall school and have been a governor there as well as at the Frederick Gent school. In my view education should allow each child to make the most of their varied talents.

I have lived in South Normanton all my life and have been involved with the Glebe for more than six decades in many different ways; as a pupil, a teacher, a parent (and grandparent), a founder member of the PTA and, for many years as a Governor. I don’t seem to be able to let go – the glue sticks fast.

I am looking forward to the challenge of being the Clerk to the governors in addition to my role as Mid Day Supervisor at the school.  Being a  busy mum of two girls, I enjoy being involved in all their activities.  We have lived in South Normanton for nearly ten years.
