Sara-Kate Townsend- Staff Governor
I have recently come to the role of staff governor following 3 years working as Key Stage 2 teacher and leader; English and Assessment Lead at Pilsley. I have taught for 18 years throughout the primary range, in both Oxfordshire and Derbyshire. I feel very lucky to call Derbyshire home and enjoy walking our beautiful countryside with my husband and our black Labrador- Sam.
Josephine Coyne - Foundation Governor
I became a Foundation Governor in 2016. My background is in further education and management. As well as teaching business related subjects, I have developed new courses, designed standards, moderation procedures and led a cross college lesson observation programme. I have held roles as management information systems manager, college quality manager and curriculum manager for Business and Computing; all supporting students, managing teams and budgets. Throughout my professional career, I have also worked with different business partnerships across the UK as a management consultant, mainly in training and development.
I sit on the Teaching and Learning Committee with responsibility for Safeguarding practices and Early Years education. I believe it is important to put the pupil at the centre of all we do and I feel privileged to have joined the Governing Body at Pilsley C of E School. I am married with three children and enjoy activities that involve people and the great outdoors.
Chris Hubbuck – Foundation Governor
I have lived on the Chatsworth Estate all my life and have worked for the past and present Duke and Duchess of Devonshire for 36 years. I live with my wife, Claire and daughter Niamh, who is 14 years of age and attends Lady Manners School. We, as a family, enjoy walking with our pet dog, Poppy, holidaying in our caravan and collectively, we are enthusiastic about the countryside and environmental issues. I am an avid sports fan, particularly cricket and enjoy the odd game at Chatsworth with friends and colleagues.
I am the Chair for the Pilsley Parish meeting. I am passionate about community and enjoy the various challenges that come with the role. I am absolutely thrilled to have been asked to become a Foundation Governor at Pilsley C of E Primary School, which my daughter and I both attended and very much look forward to contributing to the school.
Our Governing Body meets at least once per term, although we have established two sub-committees who meet on a more regular basis and have their own specific Roles and Responsibilities. The Resource Management Committee (RMC) deals with teaching and non-teaching staffing issues, budget setting, Premises and Health & Safety and ensuring the School gets the best value. The Teaching & Learning Committee (TLC) deal with all aspects of the curriculum, teaching and learning, pupil progress and target setting.
