Reverend D. North – Chair

I’m David and I’m pleased and privileged to be the current Chair of Governors at Inmans Primary School. I have been a Governor since 2014 and am finding that it’s a constant learning curve! My full-time occupation is being the Pastor of ‘Connect Community Church’ in Hull. My wife is a teacher at Inmans, and I have 2 grown-up children. As well as Governor duties, I regularly take part in events at the school including, assemblies, RE lessons, reading with children, philosophy classes. I help out on school trips when they need extra help and generally I visit the school regularly as part of my Chair Governor role. My special focus is SMSC, British Values, RE, PSHCE and Modern Foreign Languages. I am pleased and excited to be part of the team that is taking Inmans on its journey to where it wants to be. I believe we’re all working together to make Inmans the best school in the area! Contact me and find out how you can get involved to help Inmans excel.

Mr P. Wilkinson – Parent Governor

I joined the Governing Body in 2022. My background is in IT having over 20 years’ experience at enterprise level during which time I have expanded my skills to include project management, critical incident response and business process assessment. I have lived in Hedon all of my life and attended Inmans Primary (long before the new building!), My eldest daughter “graduated” during lockdown and my youngest  is in year 5 as I join the governing body team so I have a strong connection to the school and local area. My special focus is Safeguarding, looking at in particular e-safety. I hope to support the teachers in their strive for continued improvement and make every child’s primary school experience a solid foundation to learn and expand their skills and interests.

Mrs S. Daniels – Parent Governor

I joined the Governing Board in 2017 as a Parent Governor. With a background in HR in not-for-profit and private sectors, I am thoroughly enjoying learning about the education field. With 10 years’ experience in a senior HR Management role, I have led several change management projects and developed many people management policies and procedures to drive the business strategy. I have vast experience in all aspects of human resources and have a real passion for driving business performance through effective performance management. My current special focus is SEND, Wellbeing Blue Pod (years 1 and 2). I hope to continue to support the school going forward in any way I can in achieving continued and improved standards whilst maintaining children’s positive experiences of their primary school years at Inmans.

Mrs E. Everitt – Parent Governor

I joined the Governing Body in 2016 as a Parent Governor. I am a qualified teacher with experience in Secondary and Primary Schools, both here in the UK and in Australia. I also have qualifications in Counselling Skills. I have a good understanding of the education system, its goals and pressures both on staff and students. My current special focus as Governor is English,  Safeguarding and EYFS. hope to help support the school in its endeavours to become an outstanding school.

Mrs T. Marrow – Parent Governor

I joined the Board of Governors in 2017 as a Parent Governor. I was a pupil at Inmans myself after moving to Hedon as a child and now my two children were in key stage 1 when I joined the governing board. I worked as a scientist for most of my career, but recently trained as a science teacher. I am currently working part-time as a supply teacher in secondary schools, which allows me more time to spend with my family. I am enjoying my new role as a Governor and learning more about the school and the pupils. My special focus is, Science, SEND and Ochre pod (Years 5 and 6)

Mrs S. Rix – Co-opted Governor

​I became a Governor in 2017. Previously, I had been employed at Inmans Primary School for twenty-seven years, holding various roles. I had always been very involved in the school and wanted to carry on supporting the children after I left, in any way I can. Which I have continued to do. I have an interest in all curriculum subjects and across all age groups. I volunteer to hear the children read regularly and also, where I can, I support in school with events and with accompanying children on local trips. My special focus is computing, educational visits and D&T. I have a background in IT and have a continued interest in this. I feel my experience working in the school enables me to understand how the curriculum is applied, what the assessment process is and how this affects the children and what is needed to help them achieve their best.

Mrs S.Fellows - Headteacher

I began working as the headteacher of Inmans Primary School in January 2018 following ten years as the deputy headteacher. Prior to this I worked at Sproatley Primary School as a Foundation Stage teacher and Foundation Stage Lead. I qualified from York St John University in 1998 with an honours degree in Biology with Primary Specialism.  In my spare time I enjoy running, spending time with my family and walking my dog Cassie. I am very proud of the school and am passionate that we provide the children at Inmans Primary School with the very best education and lifelong skills for learning.

Mr L Johnson - Staff Governor

When I first joined the Inmans family, in 2018, it was clear to me how important community was to the school. As a new member of the team, I pursued my specific areas of interest and now wear several hats: one being a Year 6 class teacher and another being the deputy Special Educational Needs Coordinator. I find both roles exciting as they offer new and frequent opportunities to help cultivate and implement inclusive learning environments for all children – no day is the same.

I am proud to work at Inmans Primary and that is why I jumped at the chance to become staff governor. I now find myself in the very lucky and unique position to operate as a part of the school’s day-to-day running whilst also contributing to the governing body’s work of strategic management. I hope to continue supporting the school in providing the very best education and lifelong skills for the children.

Mr B. Hanson – Parent Governor

I joined the Governing Body in 2018 as a Parent Governor. I have worked in the public sector all of my career, holding positions in local government and the NHS. My roles have included responsibilities for strategic planning and service improvement of varying degrees in the fields of health commissioning, children’s services and housing. Having worked in children’s services, I have taken the governing lead role in Safeguarding, as well as special focus in Pupil Premium and LAC. I have vast experience in roles that require me to undertake detailed analysis of different types of information. I feel that I will be able to bring this skill to the role of Governor when scrutinising reports and performance information. I hope to help the school with its continuous improvement and get the best outcomes possible for all of the children who are pupils here. What I would like to help the school to achieve is for every child who comes here to leave feeling happy, having had a really good time with their friends and enjoying whatever it is they’ve learned about.

Mr N. Jackson – Parent Governor

Recently joining the governing body (2019), I have been buoyed by the work the school are doing for  the children and the local community. Having a child in the EYFS and one due to attend in the future I have a planned long term investment in the school. Living in the area all my life and attending the local schools myself I have personally benefited from them and wanted to give back. I have extensive background in finance and long term investment, being the commercial lead on multi million pound investments, most recently the successful fibre roll out in Hull. I am also responsible for leading a large team ensuring efficiency and effectiveness is consistent throughout. My current special focus is, Pupil premium, LAC, Sports Premium and PE. I will bring a balanced common sense approach to decision making. My aim would be to see the school continue improving year on year, providing the children attending with the best start in life, enhancing the local community along the way.

Mr R. Wood – Parent Governor

I joined the governing body in 2019 as a co-opted governor. I have worked as an industrial maintenance engineer for nearly 40 years and am a qualified electrician.  My work involves having knowledge of health and safety procedures/regulations and I feel this would be of benefit to the governing body of the school. I also have a background in organising events for youth organisations such as Young Farmers. I hope to ensure and assist the continued progress of the school and make the time spent at Inmans memorable for the pupils.

Mrs A. Day-Green – Parent Governor

I joined the Governing Body in 2022. I have ties with Inman’s as it’s the Primary school I attended, and my son has started year 2 as I became a governor so I have a vested interest as well as real affection for the school.  Learning about the curriculum and the overall school structure since my son started has been interesting and I’m keen to explore this further.  My background is health, sport and fitness so I’m particularly interested in the sporting provision and other non-academic learning that supports a child’s development and enhances their school experience.  My current job is part of the local NHS Trust in the Prevention, Wellbeing and Recovery team and help format and deliver public health strategies and I’m passionate about supporting people to make positive lifestyle changes. My special focus is English, Sports Premium and Green Pod (Years 3 and 4).  I am also keen to promote the school within the wider community setting. I feel I have suitable skills and enthusiasm to bring to this role and my background will add some different elements to the Governing board.

Ms F. Ritson-Walton – Parent Governor

I became a parent governor in 2021 when my children joined EYFS at Inmans Primary. I have spent 17 years working as a chemical engineer and technical manager, predominantly at BP and subsequently INEOS Saltend. I am passionate about promoting STEM careers, and my special focus at the school is maths. I am enjoying being involved in my childrens’ place of education and working with the school to sustain and improve its performance.
