Our School Governors

The governing board are responsible for the strategic direction of our school. They have to make sure that all statutory obligations for pupils and staff are met.

At our school we have five types of governor:

FOUNDATION GOVERNORS who are elected by the Parish Church Council.

PARENT GOVERNORS who are elected by parents and carers of pupils at our school.

STAFF GOVERNORS who are elected by staff at our school.

LOCAL AUTHORITY GOVERNOR who is nominated by the Local Authority of the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.

CO-OPTED GOVERNORS who are appointed by the Governing Body.

Paul Baxter

Now retired after working in a range of industries from airlines to healthcare, I was appointed as a governor in December 2015. Education is the key to success in life and it is crucial that children get off to a good start in their educational 'careers'. I believe that if you enjoy learning, you never stop learning. Boyne Hill has a superb reputation for doing its best and I am excited by the opportunity to contribute to maintaining and developing that success.

 

Jay Wilkinson

Having retired after 35 years at Brunel University London where I was Director of the Arts Centre, I returned to my roots as a flute teacher. As the daughter of a teacher and the mother of two grown-up children, education and the love of learning have always  been central to my life. My church connections are primarily with Littlewick Green, near Maidenhead, where my husband has been organist for many, many years. 

When I first walked into Boyne Hill, I was deeply impressed by the joy of the children in their school, their confidence in each other and in those teaching and looking after them. I hope to be able to contribute to the wellbeing of Boyne Hill in whatever way I can.

 

Anne Sweeney

I started teaching in 1975 and retired a few years ago from the post of Head at Coworth Flexlands school in Surrey. I have been a member of All Saints Church for around 20 years and this link led me to becoming a Foundation Governor at Boyne Hill in 2013 when the role was advertised in Church. I believe that an excellent school like Boyne Hill gives children the very best start in life.

 

Anna Holloway

I have two daughters, the eldest of whom finished her time in key stage 1 at Boyne Hill in July 2021. I am passionate about this school and its reputation as academically outstanding and as a school which nurtures and cares for its pupils. I have been a member of the Boyne Hill School Association for the past year and welcome the opportunity to be the voice of the parents in the school's running and to help drive continued success. Professionally, I was admitted as a solicitor of the Supreme Court 12 years ago and work in-house as a senior litigator for a firm of accountants.

 

Amy Lovell

My four children have all attended/will all attend Boyne Hill between 2018 and 2025. The school therefore plays a big part in my family life and its educational success and the welfare and safety of its pupils are naturally of great importance to me. I have a background in retail management and buying and now run my own business as a Pilates instructor. I also lead the Windsor and Maidenhead branch of the charity GoodGym whose members combine getting fit with volunteering in the local community.

 

Emma Franks

I am a Key Stage 1 teacher and am currently teaching Year 2. I have worked as a teacher at Boyne Hill for 8 years but have had connections with the school for over 20 years. My three children all came to the school, I was a Parent Governor from 2002-2009, I have worked as a lunchtime care assistant, one to one Learning Support Assistant and Teaching Assistant. I completed my teacher training at Boyne Hill under the expert mentorship of Jane Davies and jumped at the chance to work here as a teacher from 2013. Boyne Hill feels like family to me and being a governor enables me to help and support the school to continue being the amazing place for children to grow and learn. I am subject leader for Physical Education and Music and am passionate about both. In my spare time I enjoy running, power walking and going to music concerts.

 

Jane Davies

My involvement with Boyne Hill began in 2001 when my daughter joined the Nursery. I was a regular voluntary helper in the Nursery and then joined the Key Stage One staff team as a one to one Learning Support Assistant. My passion for teaching and the amazing support of the then Head Teacher enabled me to follow the Graduate Teacher Programme in 2002 and I was then employed as a Year 1 teacher in 2003. I joined the Governing Board in 2009 when I became Deputy Head and now as Head Teacher from 2013. I feel very honoured and very proud to be part of such an amazing school with such supportive staff and governors.

Outside of school, my interests include running, power walking, gardening and reading and of course spending as much time as possible with my family.

 

Marianna James

I have been involved with Boyne Hill since my son joined the Nursery more than 26 years ago. I then became a Parent Governor and have been employed here since 1998. I initially worked as a 1:1 Support Assistant then moved to the school office in 2000 and took on the role of Clerk to the Governing Body at the same time. The school is a huge part of my life and I cannot imagine working anywhere else. The children put a smile on my face every day and some of them even think I live here!

 

None of our Governors have governance roles in other educational institutions.
