Mrs Elizabeth McLaverty

I have worked as part of the PDET Central Team for the last 18 months as the Operations Manager, concentrating on areas such as GDPR, admissions, safeguarding and governance. Previous to this I worked at the local authority for 13 years. I am currently supporting the AGC at Barby by fulfilling the role as Chair.

 Mr Steven Benson

 

I moved to Barby relatively recently in 2016. I had previously lived near Towcester where my children completed their education before starting their careers. In my work, I have spent the majority of my career in the IT industry in various roles. Currently, I work as a consultant helping to develop software to meet customer requirements. In my role as a Community Governor, I want to help facilitate the best learning environment possible for all pupils.

Mr David Wickstead

 

I moved to Barby in 2009 with my husband. We now have 3 children, all of whom attend Barby Primary School.

I am an ACCA qualified accountant with nearly 15 years experience working in finance and currently work part time as the finance manager for a dairy farming charity. I was previously on the Barby Pre-School Committee holding the role of treasurer.

I hope to use my finance skills within my Governor role having a particular interest in budgets and the maths element of the curriculum.

 

 Staff Governors

 

 

 

 

Mrs Charlotte Saunders

 

I have been a staff governor here for a year and a teacher for eleven years, in both KS1 and 2. My subject specialism is English, which I lead in the school. 

 

 

 

Mrs Sarah Hedley                   

 

I have been working in schools for almost 19 years, starting as a finance assistant and eventually becoming Business Manager in a large Secondary School in Luton. I came to work at Barby in January 2018 having moved to Greens Norton with my husband. We have 3 grown up sons who have all now left home. I was a staff governor at both of my previous schools and my main aim is to support the students and staff so that everyone here at Barby Primary can achieve their very best.
