Meet Our Governors

 

Mrs R Rawson

Chair of Governors

 Hello my name is Rebecca Rawson and I am currently the Chair of Governors at our school.  I am now in my fourth year of being a governor here.  I am a solicitor and presently I am working in-house as Senior Legal Counsel at Royal Bank of Scotland.  I have 3 children.  Two of them are attending our school (in Starfish and Lions classes) and the other has now moved on to secondary but did go all the way through our school.  Like many of the staff at our school, I have enjoyed quite a bit of travelling.  New Zealand, Canada and Japan are some of my favourite places.  

Being a governor can be quite hard work as there is a lot of information and data to get to grips with and educational requirements are constantly changing which, unless you work in education, can be challenging to understand, especially when you are fitting this voluntary work in around your own family and career.  It is a really rewarding role, though, being able to be part of making a difference to the achievements and progress of all the children in our school that I enjoy.  I’m very enthusiastic about our team of governors and what we all do and very happy to talk to anyone who would like to know any more about it for any reason.

 

Mr R Mason

I am a parent governor and happy to help with any of your questions.  My wife and I have two children currently in KS1 and KS2 so we have a vested interest in the school.  My background is in accounting and management, but for the past 16 years I’ve ran and grown my own start-up business in the automotive aftermarket.  My hobbies include mountain biking, snowboarding and rugby coaching and I believe sport is very important for children.

 

 

Mr A Robertson

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mrs C Cessford

I am a retired Head Teacher, having taught for 34 years in small, rural C. of E. Primary schools in Nottinghamshire. I have also been a churchwarden for many years before moving to K. S. five years ago and am now a churchwarden here. My hobbies include knitting, embroidery, walking, cycling and travelling. I am Granny to three children, who also live in the village. I regularly help at school and when I have spare time I love to read. I really enjoy village life and being a part of the community. 

 

 

 

 

Mrs A Carville

My name is Anne Carville, and I have lived in the village for 26 years. Both of my children went to Kirk Smeaton School, and when Rebecca started in 1990 there were only 2 classes with a total of 36 children. I have seen many changes and improvements to school.I also worked at the school from 1994 for 15 years as a TA/HLTA, mainly in KS1. Before having children I worked for Natwest bank for 10 years, so I have a varied range of skills / knowledge to offer as a governor. I am involved with many things in the village including book club, church lunches, over 65's Christmas party, and knitting group. Since leaving school I spend my time travelling, gardening, crafting and spending time with my husband and dog.

 

 

 

Mrs L Thornley 

I have been a parent governor since 2014 and I am currently Vice Chair. My professional background is in public relations, communications and marketing and I have worked for a number of different organisations including being associate director of communications with Yorkshire Ambulance Service. As well as taking a special interest in literacy in school, I currently use my professional skills to write and design the Governor newsletter!
 
I have three children in different classes and became a governor as, through my children, I have a vested interested in helping the school to be the best it can be and I thought my experience could help. When I am not working, being a governor or being a mum (which doesn’t leave much time!) I am an avid reader.
 

Mrs R Brown

Hi, my name is Roz Brown, I have lived in Little Smeaton for the past 10 years and volunteered at the school for the past year. I have loved working with the children in Eagles class and plan to extend that to Lions this academic year (18/19).

I am retired, being 67 but still healthy and with reasonable energy levels! When I was in employment I worked for the Probation Service, ending my career as the Chief Executive of South Yorkshire Probation Service. I received an OBE for my contribution to the service. I am also a qualified executive coach and an experienced counsellor.

I joined the Governors in July 2018 and am looking forward to contributing to the school in this capacity.
