Governor: Deb Harris

I have taught in primary schools in Gloucestershire for almost 30 years and I can still remember the excitement of teaching my own class for the first time.  I gradually took on leadership roles and became headteacher of Northleach C of E Primary school in 2002.

After 14 happy years there, I have recently joined the team of Education Advisers in the Education Performance and Inclusion team here in Gloucestershire. Within my role, I support schools and also oversee Elective Home Education and Children Missing Education. I’m thoroughly enjoying this new role and hope that through this work I will be able to support the important work that is going on in our Gloucestershire schools.

I live in Cheltenham with my husband, and keep in close contact with our two sons, aged 28 and 24 years.

Areas of Responsibility: Data; Assessment; Maths; Teaching & Learning; English; Community relations.

Trustees

The school has three Trustee bodies:

 

  • The Churchwardens of St. Eadburgha's, Ebrington

 

  • The Churchwardens of St. James', Chipping Campden

 

  • The Thynne & Weymouth Endowed Schools Foundation : Children who attended St. James', who live within the boundaries of the parish of St. James', are provided with a small grant to help them buy certain essentials before transferring to secondary education, on leaving Year 6.  At the point when they move on to higher education, after A levels, those who transferred to Campden School are offered a further grant as long as their permanent address is still within the parish boundaries.  A supplementary grant is provided as they enter their third year in higher education, again, with the residency proviso. 

    Those students who attended St. James' and still comply with the residency clause, who decide to leave Campden School after GCSE results, may apply for a grant if they decide to continue their studies at one of the further education colleges.  The Trustees, however, do not pay out on these grants until the student provides written proof of his/her satisfactory completion of their chosen course.
