Our Governors - 2018-2019

‘You lead an inclusive school, well-supported by your Chair of Governors’.

Ofsted, February 2018

School Governors are drawn from various sources including parents, staff and local government. They perform three key roles towards raising school standards:

  • set strategic direction 
  • ensure accountability 
  • monitor and evaluate the school's performance. 

All Governors, including the Headteacher, have declared that they have no business or pecuniary interests and no material interests arising from relationships between Governors, or relationships between Governors and school staff (except where stated otherwise under each Governor entry below). Attendance figures at meetings are given below.


Fynamore's Full Governing Body (FGB) consists of:


Stella Fowler - Chair & Co-opted Governor

Appointed by Full Governing Body: 12.09.17 Current term ends: 11.09.21

Data and Assessment

I am responsible for making the most out of the time invested by an amazing group of dedicated volunteers and for ensuring we discharge our collective responsibilities fully and to the best of our abilities. I help guide the strategic direction of the school and am committed to the school's future and the children's education and life chances. I have been a school Governor for 8 years and have completed the coveted NCTL Chairs of Governors Leadership Development Programme. 

I am a data expert with over 20 years' experience in Higher Education data and planning – most recently in a senior management Finance and Planning role – and like nothing more than analysing, challenging and supporting the school's assessment and progress data. 

Please speak to me about any aspect of the Governing Body or becoming a Governor.


Sarah Weber - Headteacher Governor

Appointed: 01.01.19. Current term lasts while still Headteacher


Hayley Hardie - Authority Governor

Appointed by Full Governing Body: 26.09.17. Current term ends: 25.09.21

Curriculum and Early Years Foundation Stage

I particularly work with the Early Years Foundation Stage, and I know the teachers pride themselves in the achievements of all the pupils they teach. We all work together to give the pupils a great start in their first years, so if you have any comments, please let us hear them. 

As a Parent Governor, please contact me if you have any concerns about the school, your child or any school related issue. As part of the Governing Body, I want Fynamore School to be the best for all its pupils.


Jacqui Radford - Vice-Chair and Co-opted Governor, Committee Chair

Appointed by Full Governing Body: 18.09.18. Current term ends: 17.09.22

Safeguarding, Spiritual Moral Social and Cultural development (SMSC)

I have been involved in the school since it opened and know that a good school really can make a difference in children's lives. I work with other Governors to ensure that our Leadership and Management responsibilities are met and that we set a strategic direction for the school that meets the needs of our pupils and provides them with an inspiring school experience. I have delegated responsibility for safeguarding in school and have experience of multi-agency working, parent support and community partnerships. I am also Link Governor for Assessment and for Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) Development.


Michelle Pearce - Co-Opted Governor, Committee Chair

Appointed by Full Governing Body: 09.01.18. Current term ends: 08.01.22

Whistleblowing and Pupil Premium / Disadvantaged Learners

I am excited and proud to be a Governor at Fynamore School as I have been involved as a parent here since 2004 and want to help the school continue to move forward. I have been running two businesses recently but now have moved down to running just one and a job as a Data Analyst in the Civil Service. I have also served Calne as a Town Councillor for three years and now have moved to Chippenham Town Council, where I chair the Planning, Environment and Transport Committee. I am also mum to four children, all of whom have attended Fynamore. As my background is in science and data, I help monitor our progress and use our results effectively to help our Disadvantaged Learners to shine at Fynamore. I also serve as the Whistleblowing Governor for any confidential concerns staff may have. Please feel free to get in touch with with me if you have anything you wish to discuss and I will do my very best to help.

Mrs Pearce has declared that she is a Councillor on Chippenham Town Council and is a Director of Kingfisher Blue Services (PA, administrative and business support services).


Heather Scullion - Staff Governor

As Staff Governor, my role involves facilitating communication between the Governing Body and the staff. I am Assistant Headteacher, KS1 leader and also coordinate English and PE across the school. I currently teach Year 2. I joined Fynamore School in September 2016 and feel privileged to be part of such a positive school community. I am committed to providing children at our school with the best possible educational opportunities and ensuring that children are given every opportunity to shine both within and beyond the classroom.

Paula Coleman - Co-opted Governor

It is a pleasure to return to the Fynamore School Governing Body in the role of Finance Governor. I have been involved with the school since it opened in 2001, both as a parent (my two children attended Fynamore) and as a Governor. I have worked in finance for 30 years, in both the public and private sector. I am currently a Management Accountant for a local manufacturing company. It has been a privilege to see Fynamore grow and develop over the years into the incredible school it has become. I look forward to continuing being a part of it.


Sarah Trueman - Co-opted Governor

My children have attended Fynamore since 2012. I currently run my own retail shop in Calne. Before that I worked in radio broadcasting for over 10 years. I hope to use my business, communication and creative skills to assist me in my role, ensuring effective Communications. I am enjoying the challenge of seeing the workings of a school from a different perspective and want to make a positive contribution to the life of the school.
