Meet the Governors

Welcome to the Governor's section!

 

The Board of Governors at Pear Tree Infant and Walbrook Nursery School

are made up from three categories: 

 

Co-opted Governor - a governor who is appointed by existing governors on the basis of skills and/or experience. 

 

Parent Governor - a governor who is appointed by parents of either Walbrook Nursery School,

Pear Tree Infant School or existing governors.

 

Staff Governor - a governor who is appointed by members of staff at Pear Tree Infant and Walbrook Nursery School.

 

Currently we do not have any Associate Members on our Board of Governors.

Associate Members are not governors, they can be pupils, school staff and people who want to 

contribute specifically on issues related to their area of expertise,

(for instance, finance) can be appointed as associate members.

"I am an experienced teacher of Polish language both as foreign and as native. Our family has lived in Derby

for 7 years already. I volunteered at the Polish Saturday School in Derby as a teacher for two years.

Since November 2011 I have worked for Derby City Council’s New Communities Achievement Team as a

bilingual teaching assistant and family support worker. Almost from the beginning of the post at Derby City

I was given Pear Tree Infant school to provide support for new arrivals with responsibility for primary strategy. 

During these years I have managed to build a relationship with the members of new communities in Derby, with

Polish,Slovak and Czech families. I help them to admit their children to school and then support them during the

lessons. I know their problems, concerns and understand that they feel, sometimes lost in a different education

system, because I went through the same experience."

"I have been a governor at Pear Tree Infants for 17 years. All my children and grandchildren have attended

Pear Tree Infants. During my time as governor, I have shown great dedication to the children, staff and parents.

I have been a local businessman since 1977 and I am well known in the community.

I have also been a magistrate for the last 16 years sitting on various committees within the judicial system.

I am also proud to hold the post of Deputy to the Lord Lieutenant of Derbyshire.

I have also found time to work as a St John’s Ambulance volunteer. I am currently serving as Unit Manager

for the Pear Tree and Normanton Division. I have a Master’s degree from Nottingham Trent University

in Special Educational Needs. I feel that my expertise and experience is vital to my role as a school governor

and my commitment and hard work can make a difference to improving the outcomes for our parents and families."
