  • Governors are reminded that completion of this form does not remove the requirement upon them to disclose orally any interest at any

specific meeting and to leave the meeting for that agenda item. 

 

My name is John MacDonald, I am the headteacher of Home Farm Primary School and also a member of the Governing Body. As headteacher I advise the other governors about the day to day work of the school. This helps the governors make important decisions about the curriculum we offer, the way we allocate spending, which staff we appoint and other strategic decisions for which the Governing Body are responsible.

My name is Bob Wilkes, as clerk to the Governing Body and its committees I draft agendas and minutes the discussion at meetings as required by law. I have been involved with the school since 1990 as it evolved from Horton Bank Top and Cooper Lane into Westwood Park and then became Home Farm. 

My name is Vikki Lomas and I have been on the Governing Body since January 2014. I am the Vice-Chair of Governors; I currently serve as Chair on the Resources Committee and have previously served on the Curriculum Committee. I am also the Governor for Safeguarding. I have two children who both attend Home Farm Primary. I am a qualified Early Years Educator and work in a pre-school in Bradford; my knowledge of this area enables me to make decisions to get firm foundations set for the pupils. Through this I am also aware of what OFSTED require from the school. My aim as a governor is to ensure that all children and staff members are given encouragement and opportunities to learn and develop.

   

My name is Angelina Miller Clarke, originally a Parent Governor of 4 years I was re-elected as a Coopted Governor in Nov 2015. I am pleased with how the school is progressing and developing and I feel passionate about ensuring that our children receive the best possible start to their education. My aim is to support the school, staff and parents to ensure that every child is given an opportunity to reach their full potential whilst in attendance at Home Farm Primary.

 

 

 

 

My name is Farhana Younis and I am the Chair of Governors here at Home Farm Primary School. I am actively involved in all aspects of school governance at Home Farm including being a member of the Resource and Curriculum committee. In my personal life I work as a Lead Project Manager and have considerable experience in planning, delivery and managing budgets. These skills allow me to make a valuable contribution to the school development plan. I have 2 young children attending Home Farm Primary and i'm passionate about creating the best educational opportunities and life experiences for all our children. I'm pleased to be working with a great team of committed and dedicated Governors who collectively aim to improve the learning standards at Home Farm. 
My name is Kat Halpin, as well as working at Home Farm Primary I am a mum to 3 year old Lola. I have worked at Home Farm Primary School since 2006 when the school opened. I have worked as a class teacher in Years 4 & 5 and currently work in Year 3. As well as being a class teacher I am also the school's Special Educational Needs Coordinator. I have been a staff governor for 2 years now.
My name is Rachael Smith, Parent Governor. I have 2 children currently attending Home Farm Primary. I am a qualified Nursery Nurse, currently working as a childminder. I also attend university part time, where I am completing a B A Hons Degree in play-work. Personally, I enjoy getting involved in community projects and currently help to run the Parents Group at Home Farm, organising events to raise funds for the little extra's for our pupils. 

 

 

 

 

My name is Dr Ron Butterly, I qualified as a secondary PE teacher from Chester College in 1974. Since then I have taught for brief stints in a middle school in Wallasey and a secondary school in Birkenhead. I also taught for three years in F.E. in Liverpool and coached sport for two years in the Sultanate of Oman. From 1979-83 I was a postgraduate student at the University of Leeds from where I obtained a Masters degree in PE and a Ph.D. in Physiology and Psychology. From 1983 to 2012, when I retired, I taught exercise science briefly at what is now Cardiff Metropolitan University and for most of my career, more than twenty-eight years, at Leeds Beckett University.
I am still involved to a limited extent in HE academic work and I volunteer one day a week at a secondary school in Leeds where I try to help immigrant students to improve their reading in English.
My name is Katie Owen and I am a Year 5 teacher at Home Farm Primary School. I have been teaching at Home Farm Primary School since 2014 and I am currently Modern Foreign Languages coordinator. I have a degree in French and Music from the University of London and have taught abroad in France. This is my first year as a staff governor.
 
My name is Louise Hurley and I am the Local Authority Governor at Home Farm, I also serve on the Resources Committee. My little boy also attends Home Farm Primary.
I currently work as a School Business Manager in a Primary School and have 17 years experience of working in primary education. Over the years I have served on other Governing Bodies. As a school governor I am keen to make sure that all pupils have a positive experience and achieve their full potential. I am excited to be part of the Home Farm family involved in key decision making to ensure that all stakeholders grow and flourish.
 
I’m Will Martel, I joined the Governing Body at Home Farm Primary School in September 2016 while my daughter was in year 6.  Although she has moved onto High School I am delighted to be able to remain at Home Farm working to support the great team we have across pupils, parents, teachers and staff.  I believe that every child deserves the opportunity to fulfil their potential, and its our responsibility as Governors to ensure we provide the correct environment for that potential to be realised.
  My name is Colin Fieldhouse and I am a parent governor at Home Farm Primary School, having joined in December 2016. Currently, I serve on the resources committee. I have one daughter in Home Farm. I work in another primary school in Bradford where I am the ICT teacher as well as History and Geography co-ordinator. Because of my job, I am enthusiastic about creating the best possible environment for the children who attend Home Farm and am enjoying working with the governors and staff in working towards that goal.
