Governor Biographies - Drayton Parslow and Mursley
Alison Terry - LEA Governor & Chairperson for Drayton Parslow and Mursley
I have lived in Drayton Parslow for over 30 years. Both my children attended Drayton Parslow Village School and I have been a Governor since 2000. I have recently retired from a career working within the Early Years Sector. I first worked as manager in Drayton Parslow Playgroup before moving to Stoke Mandeville Hospital where I managed their holiday childcare provision. I ended my career within the Early Years’ Service of Buckinghamshire Council where I took the lead in safeguarding matters and allegations management in the Early Years sector. I bring the knowledge and experience from these roles along with previous career experience in the finance industry to my role as Governor.
Alix Gibbard - Parent Governor - Drayton Parslow and Mursley
Justin Willett - Co-opted Governor - Drayton Parslow and Mursley
I have been a Governor for Mursley, and then the collaboration, since 2006 and was involved with colleagues and staff in the forming of the Three Schools. I’m extremely pleased in the formation and continuing success of this collaboration. I want all the children to benefit from the best education and environment we can offer them. I live in Little Horwood with my wife Fiona (who is a teacher at another local school) and our three children, who have all attended the school. We have lived in the local area for over 26 years. I work as a marketing consultant.
Hazel Hobbs - Foundation Governor (Diocese) - Drayton Parslow and Mursley
Heidi Martin - Staff Governor - Drayton Parslow and Mursley
I am a staff Governor and have had the opportunity to work across all three sites for the past 9 years. At present my roles include: Assistant Headteacher, Maths co-ordinator and Year 2 class teacher alongside Mrs Haycock.
In my spare time (which is very little as I have two children) I like to keep fit, visit art and craft exhibitions, travel, and socialise with friends and family.
Laura Colvin – Co-opted Governor - Drayton Parslow and Mursley
I have three children. They currently attend Kingfishers Pre-School, Mursley CE School and Swanbourne CE School. I became a governor because I think the Three Schools provide a wonderful education in a nurturing yet aspirational environment and I want to support them to continue their fantastic work. Within the governing body my particular areas are literacy and equalities. I am a lawyer and some of my work is concerned with education and discrimination so I also have a special interest in these areas. My family and I love enjoying the beautiful countryside we live in. We are also all keen on sport and both playing and listening to music.
