The Langrish Governors
At Langrish we have elected governors representing the local community, parents and teachers.
The role of the Governing Body is to support the running of the school at a strategic level and they each give their time voluntarily to do this.
There are various committees that oversee areas of the school operation and a full governing body meeting is held each term. We are bound by a strict code of conduct and practise to ensure that the job is done well.
Reference is frequently made to the latest literature from the DfE concerning Governorship and the roles and responsibility surrounding this important job. Here is the link to the latest guidance published in 2020:
Here is an introduction to the governors:
Chair of Governors: James Greenwood (Co-opted Governor)
email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
I was voted in by the parents in 2012 to be a Parent Governor and since have been appointed as a co-opted governor. I have been chair of the Langrish Governing Body for the last 6 years.
Vice Chair of Governors: Julie Gray (Co-opted Governor)
LA Governor: Sam Bye
I am a Business Entrepreneur with a passion for Outdoor Education and Wellbeing. I have spent my career within educational establishments focusing on learning outside the classroom. In more recent years I have been sharing the importance of Nature Connectedness, science and the psychological benefits through outdoor learning. I hope to bring my wealth of experience to support the school at a strategic level with my various skills, knowledge and expertise. I am a local resident of Stroud and am part of the Standards committee at Langrish.
Having joined the ambulance service in 2008, I completed my undergraduate study qualifying as a Paramedic in 2012. I moved to the University of Surrey in 2017, and now lead the Paramedic Science programme. My wife and I settled in Petersfield in 2015, and now have two young children.
I hope to be able to bring my professional experience both from the NHS and the Higher Education sector to contribute to the continued development of a fantastic school.
Co-opted Governor: Ray Dudman
I am an architect, with a practice in Petersfield, a lecturer at Kingston University and a construction Health and Safety adviser. I am also a qualified cricket coach and RYA Yachtmaster and have an interest in many sports.
Parent Governor: Mike Capon
I am delighted to have been appointed to the Governing Body at Langrish as a parent governor and am now Chair of the Standards committee. Having experience of what a superb school this is through my daughter attending, my reason for putting myself forward is to play a part in the continuing success and learning experience of all of the pupils at Langrish.
