Governors

The Governors at Bungay Primary School are committed to ensuring that all pupils receive the best education in a rich learning environment. Our duty is to take a challenging and strategic role to drive the school forward to be the best it can be. We passionately believe that a good primary education is essential for preparing children for their future adult life and are committed to achieving this. With clear expectations and high standards, pupils are given the ambition to achieve their full potential becoming well rounded citizens for modern day Britain. 

The School Governors have oversight of the general effectiveness and running of the school. They are legally responsible for the school’s curriculum, the appointment of staff, discipline and many other aspects of school life.

Since 1991, under the new legislation covering the Local Management of Schools – The Governing Body has become responsible for the administration of the budget allocated to the school by the County.

The Governing Body meets regularly every term and the minutes of their meetings are available for the public to read in the School Office.

LESLEY WILLIAMS:

I felt that I wanted to be able to do something community based after leaving Essex to live in the Suffolk area over 5 years ago, but wanted to do something where it would help support and help future generations, following my reading up details of a professional web site I belong to, I decided that this was a great opportunity, and have been accepted as a Governor at the Bungay Primary School. Over the years I have drawn experience from both a personal level, as well as having been raised in a family run business. I started out in a Property Management Department, for a family run Estate Agency Business, & previous experience of work has ranged from a detached Grapevine worker helping young people with drug/alcohol and varying issues for a department of a local Council, Property Management (Estate Agency), Financial sector (Mortgage), Marine Insurance, Portraiture/Commercial & Wedding Photography having started my own Business, Area Sales Manager (Avon), and finally and currently been in my present position for 8 years as PA & UK Commercial Co-ordinator for a Global Distribution Company.

 

HANNAH BOOTY:

Since December 2013 I have worked at Bungay High School where I am the Pastoral Systems Manager. My role means that I work with students who are in Year 7 who require support and guidance as they transition from Primary School, up to Year 11 students who are taking their GCSE examinations. My main responsibilities are focussed around attendance, behaviour and  mentoring as well as the general pastoral care of students during the school day. I am also trained as a Designated Safeguarding Lead.
MIKE JAMES:

I’ve been a governor at the school since 2013 and seen a lot of positive change over that time which I’m really keen to continue. Since 2014 I’ve been the Chair of the Standards committee looking at helping to improve performance across  the school, I’m also the SENCO link governor. My son attends the school here where he’s really happy and enjoys his learning. I’m also involved with junior football at Bungay Town helping coach and run my son’s team, so as well as working full time I’m kept pretty busy.
