Mr. Chris Jowett - Chair of Governors
My eldest child Ellie is in Willow Class at Meath Green Infants and my son Thomas is in Ash Class. I was appointed as Chair of Governors in September 2015 having previously been a parent governor for one year. I have taught in Surrey Primary Schools for 12 years and recently left my role as Assistant Head Teacher and Special Needs Coordinator at Whyteleafe School to take up the position of Deputy Headteacher at Yattendon School. In my free time I can often be seen running around the local area as a member of the Horley Harriers Running Club. I passionately believe that every child should have the chance to achieve their best, and that their talents, whether academic, sporting, creative or musical should be cherished and nurtured. I believe that Meath Green Infants is a fantastic school that very much reflects my own beliefs and values.
Mr. Peter Selsby - Vice Chair
I have lived in Horley for most of my adult life and was originally elected as a parent governor when my own children came to Meath Green Infants – although they are now at university I have had the privilege to remain on the Governing Body, concentrating on the financial and health and safety aspects of the school. I am also involved with the Green Zone, our after school and holiday club, and with the Horley Children's Centre. Away from school, I have worked in a wide variety of roles in the banking industry for over 35 years.
Mrs Katie Learwood
I was elected as a governor in 2015. I have 2 boys, Charlie who is currently in year 2 and Noah who will hopefully start at Meath Green in a year’s time. Since being part of the school as a parent I have been impressed by the community atmosphere and the supportive nature of the staff. I have taught at Holmesdale School in Reigate for 17 years and have had a variety of roles in that time, such as computing leader for 16 years. I am currently the leader of year 2 and Music. I like to feel that with my experience in education I have a variety of skills that I can offer to the school.
Mrs Jo Rhodes
My eldest son attended Meath Green Infant School before moving on to Junior school, and my youngest remains here now. I have worked for the NHS for more than 20 years and am currently the Associate Chief Pharmacist at Surrey & Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust. My job involves constantly checking and improving the quality of the service we provide to our patients, and I was delighted to be given the opportunity to utilize these skills within the school to support the teaching staff in their mission to continuously develop and enhance the learning experience for the children.
Mrs Katherine Saunders
I am a Mum to three boys who have all gone to Meath Green Infants, the youngest having just started in reception. My eldest left to go to Junior school a couple of years ago and my middle son is in Year 2. Throughout having children at the school I've been impressed with how friendly and supportive the staff are and all three of my boys have thrived here. The school has a really positive ethos and the Head and Senior Teachers are really keen to build on the schools good reputation and continue to improve, this makes being part of the governing body really enjoyable. Having previously worked as an NHS Hospital Manager I now run my own healthcare consultancy company and work in hospitals around the South East of England, hopefully the management and finance skills I use in my work are useful in my role as a Governor.
Mrs. Sara Woolsey
I have been a Governor since 2012. I have a strong interest in education and I have taught in local schools for many years. My eldest daughter left the infant school last year, my middle daughter is in year one and I am hoping that my youngest daughter will start in Reception next September. I enjoy being a Governor as it feels like I am giving something to the community and feel part of the school.
Mrs Louise Boughen
I've been involved with the school since my daughter joined in 2011 and was chair of the PTA for a year and a half while she was at the school. When my son started in 2015 I wanted to continue my involvement with the school and was interested in understanding more about how the school operates. I therefore became a governor at the end of 2015. As a governor I enjoy having greater insight into all of the various ways in which the staff continuously work to improve the learning experience of the pupils in the school, and it is great to be able help support the school’s continued growth and improvement. I currently work at a professional services firm so try to bring some of my skills to the governing body.
