Meet The Governors

Carole Allen-Smith - Chairperson
Foundation ex officio Behaviour for Learning

I decided to become a governor, firstly to be active within the school community, secondly to participate in the education of children. That was fifteen years ago! My involvement has been as a parent governor, foundation governor and I am now ex-officio foundation governor (I represent Preb. Jan on the governing body). I have been chair for a number of terms, a role it has been my privilege to serve in supporting this school.

Sandra Harding - Vice-chairperson
Co-opted Curriculum for Learning

Both my daughters attend Marksbury and have now started competitive degrees at their chosen Universities. Marksbury School (and supportive parents...) stimulated the beginning of their learning journey. I have been involved in healthcare management for over 20 years and we hope this experience and and understanding of another regulated environment adds to my role. I am very proud of Marksbury School and very happy to give something back.

Since moving into the village, in 2014, as a qualified primary teacher, it has been my pleasure to get to know the children and staff of Marksbury School through voluntary work, once or twice per week, in both Reception, Key Stage 1 and 2 .  I bring to the role of governor, a professional background  in both business, primary education and premises/events management. I have also served as a governor of another local primary school in the past. As a governor at Marksbury Cof E Primary School, I hope to use my varied skills base to contribute to the ongoing development of this small but outstanding village school, where every child is known individually and matters. 

Tony Caisley - Foundation Governor

I was delighted to be asked to become a foundation governor at Marksbury School. I retired five years ago after a thirty-five year career, teaching mainly Year 5 and 6. During that time I spent eight years as a teacher governor. I have been a churchwarden at Marksbury Church for many years. Everything I have seen about the school convinces me that it is thriving and I look forward to playing a part in its continuing development.

Kim Eyres - Parent Governor

I have been a governor for a several years and I have recently taken on the role of Chair of the Finance Committee, ensuring that we use our budget to best effect in this thriving school. I have three daughters, two of which are at Marksbury with the youngest keen to join her older sisters!

Anna Langley

I feel very privileged to become part of the Marksbury School Governor team. I am a resident of Marksbury and hope my children will attend the school in the future. I am a qualified Secondary teacher and am currently working in Special Educational needs. I feel that my knowledge and experiences in education will support Marksbury school and help to keep our school a success.

                            Julie Player - Head Teacher

I became the Head at Marksbury at Easter 2015. I have already been to several governor meetings and have found everyone to be really supportive, knowledgeable and friendly. Being involved with the Governors has also helped me to meet the wider school community.
