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 have been a governor since 2013.  I have 3 children.  They have all either been or still are attending 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.  There is a lot of information and data to get to grips with and educational requirements are constantly changing. Unless you work in education, these can be challenging to understand, especially when you are fitting this voluntary work in around your own family and career.
 
Being a governor can also be a rewarding role.  I enjoy being able to be part of making a difference to the achievements and progress of all the children in our school.
 
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 our role.

 

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 KS2 so we have a vested interest in the school.  My background is in accounting and management, but for the past 18 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. in 2012 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.

Mr T Jones

 have started my fifth year as a governor and I am really enjoying the role. I am currently the lead governor for Health & Safety at school and I work closely with my governor colleagues and the Headteacher to ensure school is a safe and healthy environment for everyone. I have been an operational Firefighter for 21 years and have supported school with fire related topics since my daughter started at Kirk Smeaton in 2013.

I enjoy a number of activities outside of my work and governor responsibilities including Cross fit, archery, playing piano (quite badly actually) and of course spending time in our fantastic village. I am always available for questions about school and my governing role so please don’t hesitate to ask.

 

Mrs R Brown

My name is Roz Brown, I live in Little Smeaton and, as well as being a Governor, I volunteer at the school, working with different classes as the need arises. I am retired, 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 am also a qualified executive coach and an experienced counsellor.

The school is a very important part of our community and I am delighted to be part of it, able to contribute to it’s development and continuing success.

 

Mr P Hursthouse

    

Mr P Hudson

My name is Peter Hudson, I joined as a parent governor at Kirk Smeaton in Spring 2019. I am a father of two and my daughter is in year 1 Dolphins.

I am a registered nurse by background and currently work as specialist in Public Health, I have a personal and professional interest in the broader health and wellbeing agenda but also experience in patient safety and quality improvement.

Outside of work I like to spend time with my kids, running and renovating houses.
