Who's Who

Laura Pearson - Co-Chair of Governors - Co-opted Governor

 

I have over twenty-three years’ experience in education across both primary and secondary school settings, and have been both a Headteacher and an Executive school leader. I currently work for a Multi-Academy Trust in Bromley as an Improvement Partner providing support to a range of schools in different contexts.

 

After working with Churchill CE Primary School in a different capacity, I was keen to offer further support and so I joined the governing body in January 2019. I am committed to seeing the school flourish, preparing the children for lifelong learning.

 

Rowan Waller - Co-Chair of Governors - Co-opted Governor

I am now an independent primary mathematics consultant following my passion for developing primary mathematics in different schools.

 

 

 

 

 

Barbara Humphrey – Vice Chair of Governors - Foundation Governor

 

I have served as a governor to Churchill school from 2015, originally as a LA governor, and now as a foundation governor. As a retired primary school teacher and a reading specialist, children's education is very important to me. I am a committed Christian and I firmly believe the Churchill CEP school has the right atmosphere to foster good learning in academic, social and spiritual development.

David Paton - Co-Opted Governor

 

I am delighted to have been asked to join the Board of Governors at Churchill. I have been a Head Teacher since 2011 when I founded the first Radnor House School in Twickenham, a co-educational independent day school. In 2015 I led a merger between Radnor House and Combe Bank School to remodel the existing girls-only school in Sundridge and develop it into a high quality co-educational private school for the local area.

 

I live in Ide Hill with my wife and three young children​.

 

 

 

Sara Ramsey - Co-opted Governor

 

I live in Westerham with my husband and two young sons. I'm currently on maternity leave from my job at the Greater London Authority where I run a youth social action programme which encourages children from all London schools to take positive action in their local community. Prior to this I have taught English in a number of London secondary schools. I have also worked for an anti-bullying and youth mental health charity. 

In my spare time I enjoy walking, cooking, reading and music. 

I joined the Board of Governors in July 2018 and I'm delighted to be able to contribute to the school and community. 

 

Judy Duffield 

 

I have been involved in the world of education for many years (over 50!) and was a teacher, Deputy Head and Head Teacher for 43 of those years. I taught in the London Borough of Southwark, moved out to Kent when I was working in Surrey and then joined Churchill School in 1988. I continued to work in this wonderful school until I retired in 2012, when I continued to keep in touch with new education initiatives as a supply teacher. I am also currently a Governor of another school in Kent.

I have many other interests and am currently a member of St Mary’s Church PCC, a committee member of St Mary’s Heritage Trust, sing in the church choir and a member of Westerham Amateur Dramatic Society.

But to be honest, my greatest achievement in life has been having my two amazing children and now I’m blessed with two lively, wonderful grandchildren who keep me even busier!

I am thrilled to be back at Churchill as a Governor. It is a real privilege to return to this great school in this role. 

 

Kate York - Foundation Governor

 

I am very pleased to have the opportunity of serving my own community as a Church elected governor of Churchill Primary School, having spent all of my working life in education. I studied for a Bed at Stockwell College in Bromley, having attended Sevenoaks County Primary School, then Tonbridge Girls’ Grammar School. I first taught at Charles Darwin School, then spent three years teaching in Peckham at a school in a Social Priority area.

 

I spent the next eight years teaching at Bennett Memorial School in Tunbridge Wells, where I had responsibility for children entering the school and had the opportunity of visiting all the primary schools sending children there. For the rest of my career I was headteacher of Derwent Lodge School, at first in Tunbridge Wells, then at Somerhill in Tonbridge. For the last few years of my career I was a school inspector.

 

When I retired, I became a Governor at Bennett Memorial School and latterly I served on Rochester Diocesan Board of Education. I have belonged since 1977 to an international worldwide society for women in education and from 2010-2012 I was president of members from countries in Europe.

 

Emily Kelly – Staff Governor

 

I have been a teacher at Churchill CE Primary School since 2015 both in KS1 and KS2. I currently teach in Key Stage 2. I joined the Board of Governors in October 2017 and am looking forward to continuing the positive relationship between the staff and Governing Body at Churchill. I live in Five Oak Green and in my spare time I enjoy spending time with my husband and two kittens and reading.
