Meet The Governors

Rob Stanbridge - Chair of Governors/Parent Governor

I've been a governor at Sheddingdean School for a number of years now with 2 boys both attending the school.

I first became interested in the role following a chat with the head teacher in the playground. I didn't know anything about school governors before I took up the role, but I felt that if there was something I could do to support the school then I'd try my best to make Sheddingdean a great place for my children to learn and have fun. If you have any questions about being a governor or anything you would like to raise, I'll do my best to help.

 Laura Sykes  - Clerk to the Governors

Max Neilsen - Co-opted Governor

I am a teacher at a large secondary school in Crawley. I decided to become a governor at Sheddingdean because I knew it was a good school where every pupil receives a high quality education. I love meeting pupils of a much younger age as their enthusiasm is so infectious. The staff could not be more professional and their expertise is greatly valued. As a governor I enjoy working with such a talented and dedicated staff.

Joanne Richardson  -  Local Authority Governor

As the local authority representative for Sheddingdean Governing Body I really enjoy the opportunities my role provides me with in enabling me to visit the school to work with everyone, helping it on its journey towards becoming stronger every day.  My own professional background is as a teacher and senior leader working in several primary schools in the North of England before I relocated to the South East. I very much enjoy meeting pupils, parents and staff when I visit the school and look forward to catching up with many of you during 2016 when I pop in or attend many of the exciting events taking place throughout the year.  Please do come along and have a chat with me if you see me around school. I am always interested to hear the views of others about how we can work together to make Sheddingdean even better. I look forward to seeing you in school.

John Spencer - Co-opted Governor

A father of three children, all who were educated at Sheddingdean. I have lived in Burgess Hill since 1991 and been a governor for over 13 years and enjoy the various tasks we undertake from making sure the budget is balanced, the safety and well-being of everyone and the educational progress and achievement of the children. Change is a constant in education, and I relish the new challenges this brings. Moreover, I enjoy the camaraderie of staff, children and governors at the school, something which is evident the minute you walk through the gates. I work in London and my hobbies include walking our dog in the Weald and the Downs, and travelling across the U. Football is a passion of mine although supporting my home-town club of Blackpool has more downs than ups recently.

Rebecca Johnston - Co-opted Governor

I am always keen to take an active role in supporting my children's schools. Two of my three children have been through the school with one child in Year 6.  I am also a teacher and work on a supply basis in the school too. As a parent Governor, I am a voice for parents and carers to the management of the school, so please share any issues that you wish to raise about any aspects of school life.
