Meet our Governors

 

Lucy Wiles

I have been a governor since 2012 and the Chair for just over 3 years.  I have 2 boys, my eldest is now at high school and my youngest at GPS in Yr 2.  As an ex-pupil myself (many moons ago!), I am extremely passionate about GPS, I enjoy seeing the school thrive and seeing how loved and important it is to the children that attend it.  As the longest standing governor, I remember with sadness how the school was underachieving in 2012.  To see the progression that the school has made, the drive that the Senior Leadership Team and staff have, is something very special to witness.  This experience of seeing the school go from an Ofsted rating “Special measures” to the last inspection when they were rated “Good” helps continue my role of  “critical friend”.

 

 

Tessa Wildgoose

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.

 

 Tom Else

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. 

Richard Garratt

I joined the school’s governing body as a parent governor in January 2021.  My eldest daughter recently started at the school in EYFS and I was a student myself at Glenfield Primary.
I work for the Local Authority as a Senior Transport Analyst and am Head of the Transport Planning Apprenticeship Scheme.  I am excited to take on this new role and believe the skills and knowledge I bring will add value to the governing body as a whole.
