I live locally enjoying the beautiful sights and sounds of Whitby.  I have had the pleasure of over 35 years of teaching experience in secondary schools in Nottingham, North Yorkshire and Leeds. I hold the national school headship qualification and spent time working in industry in photolithography.  Over the last couple of years I have also served as a public governor for Whitby on the York Teaching Hospital Trust.

I have had the absolute pleasure of being the head teacher at this truly amazing Church of England village school for over 5 years now.  My background includes working in some of the more deprived schools in both Durham and Stockton Local Authorities. I am a mum to two grown up children and grandma to a grandson.  I spend my free time enjoying walking, live music and good coffee.

School Improvement Committee member - chair

 

Pen Portrait

I am a dedicated family man who has been very happily married for over 20 years and have four children between the ages of 18 and 6.  Many years ago I served in the police force as a constable before leaving to pursue higher education. My most interesting pre-teaching "career choice” was as a long-haul flight attendant for a well-known airline, (which was far more interesting than the police service!) I am a committed and active Christian and fully uphold and support the ethos of our school, its beliefs and values.

I live locally and have been associated with the school since 1990 , when my two children were lucky enough to spend their primary education at Ruswarp school.  I am an Early Years Professional and qualified in the child care sector in 1974.  I own and run the Busy Bees Playgroup in Ruswarp and have done so for the last 18 years.

Pen Portrait

I have been a governor at Ruswarp Church of England Primary School since 2012. I currently work in the environmental sector and have a keen interest in environmental education. I firmly believe that every child at the school should be given the opportunity to fulfil their potential wherever possible. I chair the resources committee and I would really encourage any of the parents / carers at the school to take an active interest in the running of the school and put themselves forward to become governors.

I was a research scientist in Genetic Toxicology for 10 years leading a research laboratory responsible for testing chemicals for cancer-causing properties. I also worked in Education for 20 years in both the primary and secondary phases. I retired as Principal School Improvement Adviser for Redcar & Cleveland LA where I led the School Effectiveness Service with a team of 40 people.

Mrs Lisa Ward

I have a degree in administration and languages and lots of experience in admin and customer service.  I am employed by NYCC as Clerk to Governors at this lovely village school.  I enjoy working with the governing body, providing advice and support and preparing agendas and minutes for the meetings.  I also work in other local schools as a clerk and a teaching assistant.
I love living in Whitby, surrounded by beautiful countryside and especially like the beach where I can always be found in the Summer months - at our family beach chalet!
