I joined the Governing Body at Inmans as a Parent Governor in 2004, when my youngest child was a pupil here. After a term as Vice-Chair, I became Chair in 2008 shortly after the terrible floods and was very involved with the planning and completion of the new build project. Having completed over ten years as Chair, I am now a Governor with a special interest in residential visits and pupil premium. I have attended many residential visits and hope to continue to support the school in any way I can.
I have lived in the local area with my family for over 30 years, originating from Liverpool. In my ‘other’ life I am a District Commissioner for Scouting and I work for Boots Pharmacies

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’ve volunteered to take up one of the Governing Body’s safeguarding responsibilities.
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.

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.
I am interested in all curriculum subjects and across all age groups. At the moment, and when time allows, I volunteer to hear the children read. I am responsible for Investors in Pupils, Accreditations and Computing. 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 and what the assessment process is and how this affects the children and what is needed to help them achieve their best.
