OUR GOVERNOR PROFILES
I joined Wrenbury Governing Body in September having just retired from a 25 year career in education. I was a Headteacher for 16 years in three very different schools, my first headship at Wrenbury Primary. Alongside this, I was a Local Leader of Education supporting other Headteachers and I continue to work for Cheshire East on Appeals for admissions and exclusions.
I was brought up in the local area and am married with two children. I also have two grandchildren, one registered gifted and talented and the other with special educational needs so I am very aware of the vast spread of needs that have to be met by any school.
I am looking forward to working alongside the school management and hope my knowledge and experience can support the drive to maintain a first class education for all pupils of Wrenbury School and making it a central part of the local community.
I am John Robinson and live in Wrenbury. I have been involved with the school since my son attended. I am the Deputy Chair of Governors and chair the Leadership and Management Committee.
I am the elected staff representative governor. I have been a staff governor for a number of years and before that was a parent governor. I have been the school administrator since 2004 and before that was a teaching assistant here. I was a member of the PTA (then FOWS) committee for many years and still like to support their work whenever possible. Both of my children went to Wrenbury Primary School and I am very proud to be associated with school. I am a member of St Margaret's Church and feel all community groups should work together for the benefit of all.
I am Rachel Bulkeley, mother to Joseph who has just left Brine Leas School and Libby who was recently at Wrenbury (Year 6 in 2014-15). It was nine years ago when I began my role as 'parent governor' and more recently was re-elected as a 'Local Authority' Governor. I work as a Specialist Teacher for the Cheshire West Autism Team and use my knowledge to support the school's SENCO, having an additional role in school as SEN link governor.
Andrea Sanders joined the governing body in 2015-16. She is Head of ICT and computing at Brine Leas School.
I am Andrew Taylor and I am a Community Governor, and have lived at Broomhall for 25 years. I am currently employed by Churches Together in Cheshire, charged with encouraging and supporting churches and people of faith to work together as much they can. For eight years before that I was the minister of a church in Crewe. Most of my working life, however, has been in the Probation Service, and for twelve years I was the Chief Probation Officer for Cheshire. My concern is that every child is given the opportunity to make the best of the abilities and talents that they have.
I'm Andy Williams and I am a co-opted governor. I joined the governing body in July 2016 after moving into the area and have since been enjoying getting to know the school, the staff and the children. I work in sales for Kellogg's, based in Manchester. I'm passionate about ensuring Wrenbury provides a fantastic education for every child, that teaching staff receive sufficient professional development opportunities and that we make the most of the resources available to us.
I joined Wrenbury from Wybunbury in January 2015 and described the move as 'Leaving home to come home!' having lived locally as a child and attending Sound Primary School, Brine Leas High School and Malbank Sixth Form, before beginning my teacher training.I am passionate about making a positive difference for every child at Wrenbury Primary School and ensuring that the school is a successful and special place at the heart of its community.
Having been brought up in Wrenbury since the age of three, I have very strong connections with the School and the local community. I was a pupil at the School myself, followed in my footsteps by my two children, and now I am very proud to see my Grandson attending the School too.
I have worked in Primary Schools for many years, six of those years being at Wrenbury, however, re-location meant it too far to travel, hence me leaving the School for pastures new.
I am a former member of the FOWS and a former staff representative of the Governing Body at Wrenbury and also at Audlem Primary School.
Having moved back to the area, I am currently the Business Manager at Sportscape in Nantwich. One line of the business is Sports Coaching in Primary Schools, so my connection with Schools has continued.
I am passionate about local community cohesion and with the school being at the heart of Wrenbury's village community, I look forward to being part of the communal spirit!
I found my previous years as a Governor extremely rewarding and I am now looking forward to making my contribution once more, and also to working with such a supportive and dedicated team of Governors at Wrenbury's happy and thriving School.
Hello, my name is Terry and I was coopted as a governor in January 2017. I'm excited about the opportunity to be a part of the governing body, to help inspire as we aspire to achieve great education outcomes for our children, a fantastic education experience for children and importantly for staff who work so hard to educate, and of course to make the most of the resources we have. I work as a director in the NHS, and I see many parallels between what is happening in education and in our health service. I hope to bring learning from the health system to the education system, and of course to learn from the great things happening in schools like Wrenbury. I grew up locally, and went to Sound School, Brine Leas and Danebank before moving away for work. I now live in Nantwich again and I'm passionate about contributing to our children's potential in whatever way I can.
