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.
