The Governing Body helps the school to provide the best possible education for its pupils by:
David Stanley - Chair of Governors - Local Authority Governor
Mrs Sylvia Wilson - Community Governor and Governor for Safeguarding
I have lived in Littlebourne for many years. I am married with 3 grown up children, 2 of whom attended Littlebourne C.E.Primary School. I have been involved in education all my working life; and, now retired, have the time to support our local school in becoming the best it can be and a valuable asset to the local community.
As a former Headteacher of 3 Kent schools and also having worked as a Local Education officer, I have experienced 4 Ofsted Inspections , 3 of which were deemed “outstanding”. I have many years’ experience of teaching & learning, managing budgets and personnel management issues. I understand how governors work to provide support and challenge to the leadership team in order to achieve the best possible outcomes for children; and to give them the best start in school.
I currently work as a volunteer in a variety of organisiations, including schools, with my therapy dog.
I believe that the local school should participate in the life of the community; and as a parish councillor believe that I will be able to support the school in this. There are various activities in which the school will be able to take an active part.
Mrs Anne Rigden - Governor for SEND
Having lived in Littlebourne for over 40 years and our 2 children happily attending Littlebourne School I naturally feel a close link to our local school. The school is valued by and plays an active part in the life of our village community.
I was a teacher myself and latterly was the Inclusion Co-ordinator/ SENCO for more than 20 years at an ‘outstanding’ school in Whitstable.
The caring ethos of Littlebourne School results in a naturally inclusive school. All children are nurtured as individuals and their well-being and progress in all areas supported. I enjoy liaising with our experienced SENCO (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator), Headteacher and all members of staff who work as a team to try and ensure all children can reach their potential.
