Our Governors

Our School Governors
 
The Governors at Wallsend Jubilee play a very important role in the daily life of our school.   Governors at our school are all volunteers who help run our school.  Most schools including Wallsend Jubilee run with a group of school governors  - together they are called the 'governing body'.  They're involved in decisions about all aspects  of managing the school - such as running buildings and budgets, supporting staff and setting standards across the school.  Governors also help make big decision  about the schools long term goals.  They support the headteacher, but also ask questions and challenge the headteacher about the direction of the schools aims and ambitions moving into the future.
 
At Wallsend Jubilee we have a strong active governing body who come from a variety of walks of life.  Not all our governors are parents but they all have an enthusiasm, commitment and an interest in the education of all of the children at Wallsend Jubilee Primary School.
  • Mrs Margaret Scott

    Chair of Governors

    I was born and bred in Wallsend and spent the final 20 years of my working life in the town. I retired in 2012 after nearly 40 years working as a teacher and teacher trainer in a variety of settings, including secondary and further education. I have always believed strongly that if a person’s initial experience of learning at the primary school stage is positive, they will be well set up for what comes next so was happy to become a governor of Wallsend Jubilee in 2011. Since 2014 I have acted as Chair, a role which I enjoy and take very seriously. I am proud of my association with Wallsend Jubilee.

  • Mrs Sarah Campbell

    I was delighted to be appointed as a Pardbt Governor in 2014. Having lived in North Tyneside for over 35 years I have a strong connection to the School and the Community. My children and relatives have attended the school and I currently have a child in Year 5. My background is over 20 years of working in a number of roles within the public sector. My current role is a Senior Operations Manager in the Civil Service. I bring my knowledge, experience and skills gained from these roles to the school which includes; financial management, HR, Communications, Recruitment and Project Management.

  • Mrs Claire Howard

    I have lived in Wallsend all of my life and I attended Wallsend Jubilee Primary School as a pupil in the 80's/90's.
    I have worked in the Voluntary and Community Sector for the past 15 years. Within this time I have managed a number of different projects and have worked with and supported a wide of range people.
    This experience has shown me how important a good primary school education, in a safe and supportive environment can be to a child.
    I now have 2 children who attend Wallsend Jubilee Primary School. I am very proud to be a Parent Governor, and to have the opportunity support the school to continue to develop and thrive.

  • Mrs Aimee Mason

    Parent Governor

    I am Parent Governor at Wallsend Jubilee Primary School. Both of my children attend and attended the school. My daughter has just left in Year 6 and my son is in Year 2.
    My background is in special educational needs, I have worked for 18 years in a secondary school specifically working with students with autism. I believe every child should be educated in a warm, caring, stimulating environment, within which the well being of the child is at the forefront of every member of staffs mind. I look forward to another successful year as Parent Governor at Wallsend Jubilee.

  • Ms Katrina Moffat

    Governor

    "I have been a governor for North Tyneside Learning Trust since 2011 and I currently have roles at George Stephenson High School as well as Wallsend Jubilee Primary School.

    I have spent all of my professional career working in education, primarily supporting students into Higher Education but also working with SEND students. I have a keen interest in social mobility and ensuring that young people are provided with the opportunities they deserve, regardless of their background.

    As well as being a governor, I am also a member of Girlguiding and have a popular Guide unit in Forest Hall which gives me the opportunity to support young women to build confidence and skills for their future."

  • Mrs Louise Webster

    Parent Governor

    "I have been a parent governor at Wallsend Jubilee since 2016. I have 2 children who are currently in year 4 and year 1 at the school.

    Prior to the arrival of my second child I worked in the legal sector for over 12 years working across a number of different areas of law including commercial, employment and insolvency. I ended up specialising in property law dealing with landlord & tenant disputes and both residential & commercial conveyancing.

    I took a career break after the birth of my son & becoming a parent governor seemed like the perfect opportunity to put my newfound "spare time" to good use and I'm so glad I did. I love the ethos of the school and its staff, this role has really opened my eyes to the hard work that goes on way beyond the school day to keep everything running smoothly and I am very pleased to be able to play a small part in that."
