We have an amazingly supportive Governing Body with a vast range of skills and knowledge. The governors take a keen interest in all aspects of school life. They monitor the curriculum and budget and take an active part in the life of the school. They work closely with parents, children and staff and are a crucial part of the Ghost Hill team. Robert Moore is our chair of governors and he and any of the school governors can be contacted through the office.
I have been at Ghost Hill for just over 18 years. I am currently working as a HLTA across all year groups with a specialism in PE and I also help to run the Breakfast and After school Club. As a governor, my responsibilities are around anti-bullying, safeguarding and equality. Outside of school I enjoy cooking, reading and all sorts of sport, as well as spending time with my family.
My name is Mr Lambert and I am a parent governor (2016) . I have 3 daughters and at least one will be in the school until 2022. I became a governor as I am very interested in ensuring the school has a bright present and future. I am part of the management team at a local business and look to utilise these skills in my interactions with the school and other governors.
I have been a governor at Ghost Hill for four years and Chair of Governors for the last two years. I have worked in the health sector for the majority of my career and hold a Masters Degree in Health Management. Ghost Hill is a fantastic school to be involved with and I want to ensure we continue to develop our pupils to give them the best education possible whilst at the same time enabling them to have fun and develop as individuals.
I am a Director of Taverham Vets, which I started in 1994. I was born in Taverham and apart from my undergraduate days and my first 2 years in practice I have lived or worked in Taverham all my adult life. I am married with one son, two stepdaughters, 4 dogs and 3 cats. My interests include dog training (particularly gundogs), gardening and oenology. I have been a Governor at Ghost Hill for over a decade.
I am a new Governor at Ghost Hill and very excited at the opportunity. I am mum to a little girl currently attending Sunflower Nursery at Ghost Hill and work full time as a Senior Procurement Manager in the NHS. At home, I try to spend as much time as possible with my daughter and our puppy, exploring the world and having fun. I am very keen to experience as much as possible with them and enjoy every moment of their growing and developing years, supporting and guiding them in every way that I can.
I am married and have two wonderful sons. Jacob started in Reception this year and Isaac was born in September. I am currently on maternity leave from a job that I love as an Employee Relations and Policy Consultant at Aviva. Last year I was responsible for creating a ground-breaking global equal parental leave policy. This means parents who work for Aviva get the same amount of time off and pay to look after their baby/child without the need to share it; regardless of their gender, sexuality or how they become parents. As a co-opted governor, I want to ensure that the staff and pupils are living the school ethos and values. I want to help children understand that with hard work and determination they can achieve their full potential in all aspects of school life, regardless of their gender, background or ability.
To be part of the Governors is a real privilege and an opportunity to help build on the countless successes the school is revered for. We live in Taverham and our Daughter is currently a pupil, with our Son soon to be following in her footsteps. Ghost Hill has always impressed us with its ability to treat each child as in individual, enabling and encouraging them to have fun and grow their own personalities whilst learning. Day to day I’m a Key Account Manager for an international Aircraft Maintenance Company. In my spare time I enjoy being outside together as a family either on a Norfolk beach in all weathers or playing and growing things in the garden.
I have two sons currently at Ghosthill Infant School, with my youngest son being in the school until 2022. Both of my children are really enjoying their time at Ghosthill. As a parent, I am extremely passionate about their learning and particularly feel that a good education at an early age is incredibly important to provide a good foundation for their future, both in education and their wellbeing. As a parent governor, I feel it’s a great opportunity to be involved in supporting Ghosthill to help children to achieve their true potential and beyond.
In terms of my background, I’m a qualified nurse with the experience of the past 13 years working with children in both education and the community
I have been a Community Governor since 2010 and am currently Vice Chair of Governors and SEN Governor. My association with the School dates from 1984 when we moved to Taverham and the first of two of my sons joined the School. My career was in education and particularly in support for children with SEN so I really enjoy my involvement with the school. My hobbies include: travel, gardening, theatre and Church activities.
