The Governors

The Governors

We are lucky to have an active and effective board of governors at Summerfields. Below are short biographies of our current board:

Tony Murphy – Chair of Governors

Hi, I’m Tony Murphy. I have had three very happy children pass through Summerfields Primary. I’ve been running the under 11 school football team here since 2011 and also enjoy taking assemblies as part of my role as Minister at Church on the Roundabout.

I also worked for 19 years as a science teacher at Sandown High (as it was then), so given my links to Island education and the local community, it seemed a logical step to become a school governor in September 2014.

 

Tara Allman – Vice Chair of Governors

I took on the role of Parent Governor in November 2013.  My daughter is currently in Year 4.  For 17 years I was in the role of HR Officer at a large island manufacturing company, in addition, my husband and I ran a small business from home.  After having my daughter in 2009 I chose to focus on family and left my career to take up my current job as Admin’ Assistant at a local Primary School.  Becoming a Governor has allowed me to volunteer my business knowledge, and I can help ensure the school’s skills and resources are used to provide the best education for ALL children at Summerfields.​

 

Kay Wood – Headteacher

 

Alan Bound – Staff Governor

Hi my name is Alan bound. I have been the site manager at Summerfield’s for the last six years .

My background is in the construction and security industries.  My role within the school has become quite diverse. Being a governor allows me to become more involved in the education and development of children.

 

Melanie Vine – Associate Member of the Data Working Group

Melanie is the Deputy Headteacher at Summerfields Primary School and until very recently has served 8 years as a very active School Governor.  Melanie sits as an Associate Member on the Curriculum and Data Committee only due to her expertise in understanding school Data statistics and the structure/ content of the school’s Curriculum.  Within this committee she has full voting rights for any decisions.  She is able to attend Full Governors Board meetings but is not able to vote on decisions in this arena.

 

Jacqui Foster – Local Authority Governor

I have worked for Southern Housing Group for nearly 2 years as Operations Manager for our Care and Support services that cover supported housing, outreach support, domiciliary care, extra care and registered care homes working with people who are young, old, have physical/learning disabilities, mental health problems and homeless people/families. Prior to this I worked for the local authority in their Supporting People department and Housing Services as well as some work on the My Life a Full Life programme. I have particular interests in safeguarding, and have skills in areas such as quality assurance and compliance.

I wanted to become a school governor as I am interested in the education of the young people on the Island and how we can help them to achieve the best possible outcomes in their lives right from the start of their educational journey and creating aspirational young people.

 

Luke Meads – Co-opted Governor

I wanted to become a school Governor to help make a difference in my local community and make a positive contribution to the education of children.  I have a passion for Science, Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), specifically engineering, and would like to have an influence in developing the next generation of Engineers.  I believe education is vital in an ever changing world and I want to support those educating and inspiring children.

Both my wife and mother are teachers in Primary schools, and I am aware of the challenges that teachers have. With an almost constant change in school environments (budgets, targets, curriculum etc), I want to be able to contribute to the support network for the Headteacher and their teaching team.

 

Dan Olive – Parent Governor

My partner’s son currently attends Summerfields Primary School and so I have a vested interest in the school.  I care passionately about education and would like to make a positive contribution to the school’s success through the role of Governor.  I have a successful background of developing high performance teams that have a commitment to achieving excellence.

 

Helen Smith – Clerk to the Governing Body

I am an Island girl born and bred with a long history in Local Government administration, most recently with the East Riding of Yorkshire Safeguarding Children Board, prior to my return home in 2016.  I am passionate about education and training, and the opportunities it can deliver to all, especially when it comes to helping young people achieve their potential and get the best outcomes in life.  I am happy to be home on the Island and gaining more knowledge and training in the field of education now that my daughter attends school at Summerfields.
