Governor profiles

 

 

Julie Byard

I am the Chair of Governors and have been on the Governing Body here at Great Gidding since my son, James, started at the school in 2011.  My first job as a governor was to sort out a website for the school, which is now, superseded by this more pupil friendly site!  
I work as a manager and a scientist developing medical devices for hospitals. Outside of work I am a bit of a geek; enjoying tinkering with computers, and playing Minecraft with my son. I also enjoy Geocaching, reading and cooking, when time permits.

 

Peter Blundell

I have been a Governor for approximately 20 years during which time I was chair for 10 years. Three of my children have attended the school and I feel it has contributed to them progressing to a University Education.  I have stayed connected with Great Gidding Primary School because I feel it is a happy and special place with a caring and friendly environment and gives an ideal grounding for Secondary Education.

Joanne Taylor

I am the Chair of the Resources Committee and have been on the Governing Body at Great Gidding since my daughter started at the school in 2014.

My professional background is in System, Project and Change Management within the Newspaper Industry, which I have been in for 26 years – I’m not saying how old I am!

Outside of work I enjoy going to the Seaside and spending time with my family.

I feel extremely proud to be associated with Great Gidding and have tremendous admiration for the teachers and staff that put so much into the children and their overall learning experiences.

 

 

Jane Edwards

I started my working life in Worcestershire as a Junior Shorthand Typist with a firm of Solicitors and was secretary to a partner when I met Stewart we married in 1970 and went on to have 2 boys, James and Christopher.  We moved Peterborough in 1978 and Great Gidding 1987 both times due to Stewart’s career.  In 2005 I was on the Board of Governors at Great Gidding Primary School for 4 years as Foundation Governor.   I started invigilating in 2014 for Sawtry Village College which I still do to this day and of course came back on to the Board of Governors in February 2017.

 

Michael Nunns

I am a parent governor at Great Gidding School and joined in 2016 when my eldest child, Alice, joined the school. I sit on the Standards Committee and have a focus on the standard of education at the school. I am immensely keen that our school thrives in the challenging and changing education landscape. I am proud of the values and community focus of the school.

I am an environmental scientist, working in catchment management. I love to read (particularly science fantasy and sci-fi), to write, to play sport, to cook, to eat and to make things. In short I’m in to everything!

 

Denise Egbury

My name is Denise Egbury, married with two children.  I relocated from South Yorkshire two years ago, where I worked in a Primary School as a School Business Manager.  I enjoy the Primary School setting, and was invited to  join the Governing Body in 2016. I enjoy swimming, fitness classes, walking, cake decorating and sewing when I have the time.

 

 

Paul Hodson

I have lived in Great Gidding for 12 years and before that I lived in Littleport where I was Chair of Governors at the Community Primary School for 5 years.
I was invited to join as an Associate Member to assist with financial planning and strategy. My children are adults now, but I am the proud Godfather of a current pupil at the school
