“I have been a Parent Governor since 2015 and took on the role of Chair in November 2017. As the son of two (now retired) teachers, and the husband of a primary teacher (Claire) I have always been interested in the education and school experience and am fully committed to supporting Outwoods Primary as a Parent Governor.

I am Project Manager at Rolls-Royce in Derby which helps to satisfy my interest in all things science and engineering. I have two young children; Zara, and Cameron, who are both at Outwoods.“

“I became a Parent Governor in March 2018.  I am married to Amie and have two children, Ava and Henry, who both currently attend Outwoods Primary School. Our family includes Logan the Weimaraner and Ginger and Harriot the chickens. I decided to become a governor to take a more active role in my children’s education, to work with the school so that as a Governor, I could ensure my children and all other parent's children were getting the best education the school could offer.

I work for Molson Coors as a Systems manager working on continuous improvement of our systems and processes.  I am enjoying getting to know the school better and believe we have the right vision and ethos to give our children the best start in life”.

Governor Category: Community

Appointed by:   Governing Body

Current term of office ends:   November 2019

Register of Business Interests & other positions held:  Jason Hollis Builder (Son-in-Law)

Committee Membership:   Health & Safety, Staffing & Curriculum, Buildings, Grounds & Finance, Pay & Performance Management

Link Responsibilities:   Disability/Equality & Pupil Premium

I am a Co-opted Governor and was appointed by the BCLT.  I have been a governor in one role or another for over 30 years.  I am married with three children and 7 grandchildren.  My association with the school began when I was a pupil at William Hutson Junior School, and some of the best memories come from that time.  When my daughter began school at Castle Park I became a parent governor and I just carried on from there.  In those days Castle Park had a joint governing body with William Hutson so I sat on both.  The world of education was so different to that of today.  Thirty plus years later my eldest two grandchildren are pupils at Outwoods.

I am very proud of the pupils, staff and school and everything they have achieved over the years.  Outwoods is a rewarding school and I am proud to have played a small part in its journey.

Through my involvement with Castle Park, William Hutson and now Outwoods, I am honoured that I am now the proud owner of a MBE!

​My name is Margaret Collier and I am a Co-opted Governor.  I have been a school governor for over 25 years, first serving on the governing body of Castle Park Infants School and William Hutson Junior School as a parent governor.  I was involved in the amalgamation process of these two schools that resulted in Outwoods Primary School.  I have also had additional responsibilities as SEN Governor and Safeguarding governor, as well as holding the post of Vice Chair of the governing body. 

I enjoy my involvement with the school which goes much further than attending meetings and making decisions.  I have helped with school events, led the Eco projects, heard children read, cleaned and gardened.  I am not a Burtonian, but grew up in North London, trained as a paediatric nurse in London and moved to Burton when I got married 37 years ago.  I have three children who all attended Castle Park, William Hutson and de Ferrers, and now have a granddaughter who will hopefully be an Outwoods pupil when the time comes!

Although new to this Governing Board, I have accumulated a considerable amount of experience as a governor at other establishments.

I have been a member of the Finance Committee at all these schools and have gained considerable understanding and experience in the setting and operation of school budgets.

​I have served on the governing body for 11 years, firstly as a non-teaching staff governor and now as a co-opted governor.  I am the Learning Mentor and Assistant SENCo for Outwoods.  My life at Outwoods began when I joined William Hutson Junior School as a Teaching Assistant on a 6 month contract  -  18 years later, I still enjoy helping children to blossom and reach their full potential, both in and out of the classroom.
