Governors

Michael Smith, Chairman - “I am delighted and proud to represent Milby Primary School. My three children were at Milby around 20 years ago and I joined the governing body at that time. This association lasted 13 years.  Early in 2014 I was made aware that the School was looking for new governors, and I was subsequently elected as chair commencing with the school year 2014/2015. I have experience of being part of an effective governing body, monitoring of teaching and learning with the effect on children’s progress, and the financial performance against budget. All of these areas are scrutinised by the Local Authority and Ofsted inspectors, and I am committed to supporting the school in achieving the best possible standards.  I feel that I want to give something back to the school that gave my children a great start to their education. I will support the school in doing the same for the current pupils". I am the governor with responsibility for the Health and Safety of the School.

 

Gail Flint, Vice Chair“I have been a governor in Nuneaton since 2002 and Milby is the third school I have been involved with. I am the governor responsible for Safeguarding. Having recently been designated as a National Leader of Governance I will also be helping other Warwickshire schools to develop the effectiveness of their governing bodies. I have spent my professional life in marketing and sales in the automotive components industry and bring a broad commercial perspective to the Governing Body.”

 

Neil Chamberlain, Parent Governor - “I have a daughter in year 4, so was delighted to be appointed as a parent governor 2013. I have spent my professional career as a qualified accountant in the public sector and am currently Head of Finance for West Midlands Police. I have a strong interest in how the school develops and improves and will apply my specialism to supporting the Resources sub-committee.”

 

Gregg Rowley, Parent Governor - " I have two children who both attend Milby Primary School in Years 5 and 1.  Like most parents, I believe that education is the key to success and I find it a real privilege to serve as a Governor at Milby Primary School, helping to build the foundations of learning for our children.  I have been a Police Officer with West Midlands Police since 1995.  I currently manage risk on a daily basis whilst writing and influencing Force Policy. This has allowed me to develop an extensive, transferable skill base which will help me to ensure increased performance and development within the school.  As a Parent Governor I believe that there is always learning to be made, not only by the pupils but also the school.  I will help to ensure that the school delivers on its values and that our children receive the education they deserve."

 

Montie Zaman, Parent Governor - "I have two children at Milby Primary School and am driven by a desire to get the best for all children at the school. I have a broad interest in understanding the education system and this gives me a good basis for supporting the school’s leadership.

 

Originally born in Birmingham, I married and moved to Nuneaton. I have been a director of a Mortgage Broking company since 2006 and have a wide understanding of market forces in the financial services industry. I feel Milby Primary School has supported both my daughters in their journey in the education system and would like to help the school in the continuing development of its education strategy.

 

I feel I am very privileged to be a governor at Milby Primary School."

 

Lynn Walker, Co-opted Governor - “I have worked as a Cover Supervisor at Milby for the last 6 years. As a mother of three, I understand and am passionate about the need for a solid start in life, formed on the basis of a good education. I became a governor earlier this year, to provide me with the opportunity to support and influence the culture of sustained improvements necessary to meet the need of all of our children, now and in the future.”

 

Amanda Delbridge, Co-opted Governor - “I have been a teacher for 27 years and have taught throughout the primary age range. My teaching career started in Gloucestershire and then I relocated and moved to Warwickshire and have since been at Milby Primary School. Currently, I am deputy head teacher and each working day brings smiles, laughter and lots of learning! My role within the authority has been varied; I have supported the development of other schools through stronger management systems and have led training programmes on outstanding teaching and learning. I am passionate about making a difference for all and providing our children with opportunities that will support life skills.  As a co-opted governor, I am enjoying working with the governing body collectively, to drive developments for our school and achieve success for our learners.”

 

Melanie Aley, Head Teacher - “Having three children of my own, I have been a governor for over 20 years. I have served on four governing bodies at various schools, including as a parent governor, co-opted governor and as a staff governor.  One of my roles within the authority is providing professional development for head teachers and school staff across Warwickshire so they can learn from current research and best practice.  I love working with children, as each and every child is different.  Milby does keep me pretty busy, but when I’m not working I love to get out for long walks, whatever the weather!"

 

Karen Price, Co-Opted Governor - “Historically, I was a parent governor and ultimately Chair of Governors at Milby Primary School for some thirteen years [mainly during the 1990’s] when both my sons attended the school. My sons both still have happy memories of their time at Milby. I relinquished my parent governor role when I returned to work full time as a teacher and became an Assistant Headteacher within the secondary phase. Having now retired I am delighted to have been co-opted on to the governing body where I can hopefully bring my experience of governance, education and management to help the students, parents and staff of Milby Primary School achieve the best that they can in challenging times. ”
