Meet Our Governing Body

At Locks Heath Infant School we have a committed and passionate governing body with members from an array of backgrounds who bring with them a wealth of knowledge and experience from their respective industries.

Chair Finance, Personnel & Sites Committee

My name is Robert Westerberg and I have been a Governor for 8 years. My son and eldest daughter both went through LHIS and my youngest daughter is currently in year 1 having started at the school in September 2019. I have spent my working life in Air Traffic Control doing various jobs both in the UK and overseas; I am currently engaged in Cybersecurity so have developed an eye for detail and a willingness to challenge assertions, skills I bring to the Governing body.

I am passionate about our school, it is an amazing place that provides a really brilliant environment for our youngsters to start their educational lives and I am fully committed, as are the rest of the governors, to making sure the staff and pupils are fully supported every step of the way. I look forward to seeing you around the school sometime.

Sandra Fox Co-opted Governor
Sandra Fox, Co-Opted Governor
Co Vice Chair of Governors

As a co-opted Governor joining early 2018, I’ve actively volunteered my time to support the school, which I manage alongside working for full time for the local Statistics office and parent to one.

What drew me to the role? The opportunity to shape the community, act as an extension to the senior leadership team and my willingness to learn something new.

What qualifies me to be a co-opted governor? Truth be told you don’t need qualifications. If you can spare the time and share the passion to support the school to ensure we get the best for the children, that is all the school requires.  Having said that however, I’ve worked for the Civil Service in various Human Resourcing roles for the last 18 years, there are many skills that I can transfer to this role to challenge and support leadership as they strive to achieve the best for the school.  It’s exciting to be part something that helps shape the future of our younger generations.
 
Mark Scoble Parent Governor
Mark Scoble
Health and Safety Lead Governor

I have spent my working career in the construction industry.  I am a Structural Engineer and currently manage a design office within the insurance industry to the whole of the UK. I am a practical, hands on type of person with an eye for detail and accuracy and bring these skills to the Governing team.

I am a father of two children.  My eldest has completed her journey through the school.  My youngest is now in year 2.  Over the years, I have been so impressed with how the school accommodates the needs of each individual child, ensuring their requirements are catered for as best they can. As such, being a governor allows me to give something back to the school, providing challenge and support wherever I can.

I enjoy being an active member of the school community and have attended the work parties to the outside areas.  Perhaps I’ll see you at the next one, if not before.

Kathryn Heathers, Parent Governor
Safeguarding Lead Governor
Co-Chair Curriculum Committee

When the vacancy for a Parent Governor position arose in 2018 I saw it as an opportunity to support the school beyond just volunteering for swimming lessons and school trips. I have worked in Education and Sports Development for over 15 years and I felt that the skill set that I have developed could help support the school shape the quality of its curriculum provision for all children and apply for additional funding to enhance the opportunities made available during each pupils journey through the school. I have been a Parent Governor at the school for 2 years and I have one daughter currently at the school in Year 1. My eldest has just moved up to the Junior School into Year 3 but thoroughly enjoyed her time at the Infant School. It has been a privilege to be part of such a supportive and like-minded governing body that continues to celebrate and challenge the Head Teacher and staff to strive for the best for the school and its community.

 

Debra Burden Staff Governor
Debra Burden, Staff Governor

I have worked at Locks Heath Infant School for 28 years and I am very proud to work in such a happy, kind and caring school where the children come first. It is great to work as part of a team who are so committed to the school and the families we work with. I am now starting to teach the second generation of some families, which is an absolute pleasure and great testimony to how popular and well respected the school is in the community. 

I am a member of the Senior Leadership team and enjoy my role as Assistant Head and Early Years Leader. I think it is so important to stay in touch with class teaching and teaching part time in Early Years enables me to do this.  

I have been a Governor for nearly 16 years and have had experience of all the different committees. I am currently part of the Curriculum Committee through which I am able to share the great work of the school, promoting its vision and values and celebrating its many successes.

Michael Stoner Associate Member for Finance
Michael Stoner, Associate Member for Finance
I am a chartered accountant and have worked most of my career in the finance departments of multinational organisations.  I became an Associate Governor in January 2020 as the Board of Governors was looking for some financial experience to compliment the comprehensive work already being done to help ensure the school was being run on a financially sustainable basis. My daughter joined the school in Year R in 2019 and is currently in Year 1.  I see limitless potential in all the children at Locks Heath Infant School and I believe under the leadership of Mr Jump, they are all being given the best possibly opportunity given the finite resources available to achieve this potential.  If I can play however small a role in ensuring this continues, I am extremely happy to do so.
