Trotts Hill Primary School and Nursery

Meet our Governors

Chair: Helen Altringham

 

I am the Chair of the governing body, a post I have held for 4 years. I became a parent governor when my children were at Trotts Hill. I am the link governor for safeguarding and chair the finance and resources committee.

I have been a midwife at the Lister Hospital for several years but currently work part time as a nurse in the children’s department.

I am very proud to be part of the team of governors, working together with Mrs Evans and all the staff to make Trotts Hill a happy, safe, and well performing school.

Vice-chair: Emma Richardson

I am the vice-chair of the Governing body. I am also the maths and science faculty link and the GDPR link governor. I have been a parent governor since January 2017. I currently have one daughter at Trotts Hill in Year 4 and another in Year 1. I have worked as a scientist at GlaxoSmithKline for 15 years now and I am a STEM ambassador where I run science workshops at the school. I also chair the school fundraising charity FROTH (Friends & Relatives Of Trotts Hill). I thoroughly enjoy my involvement with the school and working with the staff and pupils.

Staff Governor: Jo Williams

I have worked at Trotts Hill as a class teacher since 2012 and received my BEd and QTS qualifications from Hertfordshire University. I have been the Computing subject leader since 2013 and am now a member of the Well-Tech Faculty. Teaching is in my family, with my mother, father and Uncle having teaching qualifications.

Co-opted Governor: Ruth Cousins

 

I joined the Governing Board at Trotts Hill in Autumn 2018. I am the Assistant Headteacher at a local primary school. I have taught and been in leadership in primary schools for eighteen years and have worked in both Stevenage and Luton.  I am really proud to be a governor at Trotts Hill, working with the school community and the Governing Board to ensure excellence for every child.

Co-opted Governor: Rob Driver

I have worked at Trotts Hill as Site Manager for 5 years and I became a governor in Autumn 2018.  My background is in Interior Design and this been useful in developing the school environment. My main focus is to ensure that our school site is clean and safe every day for our pupils. I also run the lunchtime drama club for year 5 pupils, which I really enjoy as I am a member of Letchworth Arcadians and enjoy performing in musicals. As a governor I am responsible for reporting on the Arts Faculty and am proud of the high level of Performing Arts at Trotts Hill.

Local Authority Governor: Jackie Keegan

I have over 19 years’ experience working in education business management and have worked with both the secondary and primary sector, maintained, single academy and multi academy trust (MAT). Currently, I work for HfL as a Business Management Consultant and has been with HfL for 3 years. Prior to joining HfL, I was the Director of Finance and Business for a MAT of 2 secondary schools and 4 primary schools. I played a key part in the conversion from maintained to single academy status and worked with the CEO and RSC to support local schools by forming a MAT and working with them to convert to academy status as part of the MAT. As part of my role as Director of Finance & Business, I was a member of two local governing bodies, the chair of one, supporting Headteachers’ and staff with the challenges and rewards of student behaviour, learning and achievement.

Parent Governor: Ross Freeman

I was elected as a Parent Governor in August 2019. Originally from a Policing background I was an Officer for nearly 14 years, the majority of which was within Local Community Policing. I have two children who attend Trotts Hill and have seen first-hand what a progressive, inclusive and well-run school this is. I enjoy working with a committed, dedicated and driven governing body who have a strong relationship with The School and its Leadership Team.

Parent Governor: Stephanie Williams

I was appointed as a Parent Governor in August 2019. I work as a child protection solicitor for a London Local Authority. My eldest child left Trotts Hill in 2019 to move on to Secondary school, having been at the school since Reception. My younger child is still at the school. I was actively involved with the school before my governance appointment, helping with fundraising and school trips when possible. I am looking forward to a more formal role in ensuring the school continues to be a safe and happy environment, as well as providing high standards of education for all children.  

Parent Governor: Simon Cornish
