I currently work within the Local Authority specialising in Health and Safety & assisting in introducing low to high end projects within council owned buildings and Academy schools.
As someone who has traveled around this country, and sometimes working in schools, OSPA has surpassed all expectations we could ever set for a Primary School.
I hope to be able to become a bridging element, providing a background knowledge of funding and committed spends whilst in large projects; but also maintaining the personal touch enabling an insight into the alternative side of the parent/teacher relationship.
Staff Governor – Lauren Pritchard
I have been part of the administration team at OSPA for the past two years. Prior to OSPA I spent 14 years working for a local food export company, while there I worked in the customer service team, operations team and claims team and have gained many skills that I feel I can bring to the role of staff governor. I am excited to be part of the governing body at OSPA and look forward to helping continue to drive the school forward.
Staff Governor – Jonathan Preston
My name is Jonathan Preston and I am currently a teacher in Year 4. With a twenty one-year career working in local schools (seventeen of which have been based at OSPA), I now look forward to contributing ideas and making decisions on a wider scale than just in the classroom.
Having built up excellent professional relationships with all colleagues across the spectrum of the academy, I feel proud that I have been given the opportunity to represent the staff and contribute on a variety of issues which will have a positive impact on our academy and the community it serves.
Chair of Governors – Ayesha Hall
I work as a HR Business Partner in Further Education and I am delighted to be able to bring this area of expertise to the OSPA Governing body.
Previously I was the HR Manager for a Multi Academy Trust which involved me attending Governor meetings to present information, so I am looking forward to sitting on the opposite side of the table!
I have a PGCE in the life long learning sector and have taught in both Secondary and Further Education and I have first hand experience of teaching and the challenges education establishments face.
Community Governor – Sally Wright
I am currently working as the Inclusion Manager at Grimsby Institute of Further and Higher Education (GIFHE). My work with SEN began when I became a specialist teacher and taught and assessed learners with dyslexia. Since then, I’ve completed a master’s degree in special educational needs (MA SEN) and focussed on an inclusive model of meeting SEN learners’ needs.
I’m passionate about equality and diversity as well as supporting all young people and adults with integrity. Promoting independence and bridging gaps in learning is a fantastically rewarding profession and one that requires innovative thinking and looking at opportunities rather than barriers.
In my personal life I am married with two grown up children. Although they both live at home they are working hard to save for a mortgage in these challenging times. Being part of their journey highlights the struggles all young people face regardless of their abilities.
New to OSPA, I am looking forward to supporting the school and the excellent team who work there.
Parent Governor – Hollie Storr
I am a customer manager for a housing association and have worked in social housing for over 10 years. I have experience in helping manage and support the governance of that business, so getting the opportunity to be a participant on the other side is exciting.
I am passionate that all children at OSPA receive a high quality education that gives them sound foundations to support them in their future learning and beyond and wanted to get involved following my daughter starting school in 2021.
I am excited to be a part of continuing the brilliant work all the staff do.
Community Governor – Peter Bailey
I am a retired Primary School Head Teacher. I have had the privilege of leading five schools across the Humberside region, from a small two teacher village school to the largest Primary School in NE Lincolnshire. I have served as an Education advisor, trained as an OFSTED inspector, led the NE Lincolnshire’s Children and Young People Scrutiny Panel and am currently a Governor in a Special School for children with Speech, Language and Communication Needs.
I am an active sportsman still playing football and getting out on my bike. I like to see young people engaging in sport, dance and wider interests and I used to organise inter school competitions. I feel strongly that the school should play a major part in the community and directly support pupils and their wider family especially in the current climate of a cost of living crisis. Knowing our pupils and their families and their needs is a must for an effective primary school. I hope to play a part with this.
