Primary School

Meet our Governors


Lucy Wiles

I became a parent governor in 2012 when my little boy was in Year 2.  My child has now left for high school and I have now moved into my role as Community Governor.  I feel very passionate about Glenfield Primary school and the progress that this school has made since our last Ofsted inspection. I am a Glenfield girl born and bred and was a student myself at Glenfield Primary (many moons ago!)  I am excited about my role as governor and look forward to the school moving forwards whilst working with the senior leadership team, staff, parents and my  fellow governors.  Outside of my role as governor, I am a busy mum of 2 boys, a florist and I also volunteer at  Leicester Cathedral.

I have been a parent governor since 2016 and have two boys that attend Glenfield Primary. I work part-time as a primary school teacher and decided that I had the time and expertise to be able to support the school. Being a governor is both rewarding and enjoyable and I am proud to be part of such a fantastic school.

Vaerity Lewis


I have been a staff governor since 2018 but have been a teacher at Glenfield for nine years. I currently job share within year 3 and am also the maths coordinator and the gifted and talented coordinator across the school. I know the school and the staff very well and became a governor to help ensure that standards remain high so that our children receive a quality education.

Sophie Jacques

I joined the school’s governing body as a parent governor in November 2020. My eldest son has recently started at the school in EYFS and my youngest attends a local nursery. I work part-time as a secondary school teacher and I’m excited to take on this new role as a parent governor. I will do everything I can to support the school in providing a safe, nurturing environment for all pupils to enjoy and achieve.

I was appointed as a Parent Governor in 2018 and I am excited about taking on the role. I look forward to working alongside other governors and the Senior Management Team to further develop the school and improve its performance. I have worked as a Police Officer for the last 10 years in Leicestershire and feel I will be able to bring relevant skills and knowledge to the team. 

Emilie Morris

 became a Community Governor in 2017 after highlighting my interest with the trust and attending an interview with three members of the trust and Local Governing Body. I work as a teacher within Leicester and I therefore feel I have the knowledge and skills to work alongside and help support the school. I have one daughter who attends Glenfield Primary in Year 1 and another hopefully starting in September 2021.

 Matt Bowyer

I was born and raised in Glenfield, and now own a business here, so I wanted to give something back to the school and local community. As a person I believe I am creative, focused and can offer good ideas with a methodical solution to any problem that arises. I can support a team, listen to others and help to adapt those ideas and implement them to my best ability.
