Meet the Governors

Howard Widdall   Chair/Co-opted Governor

Following my retirement from the position of Sales & Marketing Director at a Yorkshire based medical company I have been looking for opportunities to use my knowledge and experience, gained at Board level, to “put something back”. Becoming a School Governor is one way in which I feel I can do this as I believe that the challenges faced by schools, to effectively deploy scarce resources to deliver excellent results, are analogous in many respects to those faced by businesses and, as a member of the Governing Body, I look forward to helping Langton Primary School achieve its Vision, fulfil its Mission and deliver on its Values.

Anne Conroy Vice Chair/Local Authority Governor

I joined the governing board in 2007 and took a break from 2016 to 2018, before re-joining the team. My granddaughter, Charlotte attends the school, as did her older sister Hannah, so I have been involved with the school continuously since 2007. As well as being a governor, I love to get involved with all aspects of school life.

I am a retired project manager, and so have time to enjoy my various interests. As well as my commitment to school, I also enjoy walking, gardening, researching my family history and a variety of crafts.

Andrew Priestley Parent Governor

I am a Parent Governor, with both of my sons being pupils at the school. I became a Governor because I believe in the importance of Primary Education being the foundation of where our children get a life long love for learning. Growing up in a rural environment myself has also left me with a desire to see village schools continue and flourish. Professionally I am a Project Manager in the Oil and Gas industry and try to bring my professional experience to the Governing body.

Pam Abbott Co-opted Governor

I joined the governing body of Langton School in September 2014 having recently retired from teaching. During my teaching career I have been a teacher of Biology and more recently was Head of Health and Social Care at a secondary school in York as well as an adviser and exam moderator in this subject. I moved with my family to Burythorpe in 2001 and enjoy being a member of the village community and participating in a number voluntary organisations in the village.

School Closures

It is the school's policy to make every effort to remain open and have business as usual regardless of the weather.

Please check the school website where closure details will be put on the home page. A text message will be sent to the mobile of the first named contact for each pupil. A message will also be posted on the NYCC website, and announcements will be made on the radio on Minster FM and BBC Radio York.
