Governors

 

Meet our Governing Board.....

Mrs Rachael Bagni - Headteacher

My role within the governing board is to inform the governors about the strengths of the school and the areas that require improvement. We work together to deliver the school development plan, finance and ensure the school is running to the very best of its ability.

The role of any governor is to support and challenge the school leaders.

Miss Emma Humphries - Chair of the Governing Board.

I live and work locally in Crewe, I have 22 years in my profession and have a role I thoroughly enjoy. I am a mum to 3 boys, all of which have attended Edleston, I am currently an elected Parent Governor. Our Governing Board's vision for our school is to create a safe, nurturing environment which enables each child to attain greatness and a lifelong love of learning.  We recognize that teamwork between staff, parents and children, working together with respect has the greatest impact on our children. I believe everyone has a place in the life of the school and that our school is the heart of the community.

Mr Len Simm

Co-opted Governor - Vice Chair

For a number of years I worked for an international gas producing company. After taking early retirement I took up a new career in teaching at Coleg Cambria where I had responsibility for writing up and delivering bespoke courses for industry. Alongside this I also lectured on A level management courses. Whilst at the college, I was involved in various European ESF projects sharing best practices between small companies in Europe. After fully retiring I worked for the Local Authority on a part-time basis supporting families whose children had learning challenges, some of whom needed the additional support of EHCP plans.Prior to joining the Governing board at Edleston Primary, I had previous experience of governorship at another Primary School in Crewe.

Mrs Katey Burgess

Parrent Governor

I am a Mum to 2 children at Edleston. I am looking forward to joining the governing board and being a voice for all parents and carers at our school.  One of my passions is charity work, recently spending the day serving refreshments at a charity fair. My husband is a keen cyclist and has raised money for school funds so school can buy new things to benefit all of our children. 

If you see me please say hello and if I can help in anyway don't hesitate to contact me.

Mrs Sue Pomeroy

Co-opted Governor

I have a long background in education, having qualified as a Primary School teacher in 1987. I worked in Manchester for four years before moving to Cheshire where I took up a position at Leighton Primary School in Crewe. In 2005 I moved to Cledford Infant and Nursery School as Deputy Headteacher and in 2008 I was appointed as Headteacher at Tushingham-with-Grindley C of E Primary School. In 2011 I relocated to India with my husband. We returned to the UK in 2017 and since then I have commenced a new role as a part-time Clerk to Governors with Cheshire East. I also volunteer with Citizens Advice in Crewe.

Mr Aravind Appaji

Co-opted Governor

Education touches everybody’s lives at some point. I believe education is the foundation of our lives and schools play a huge part in exposing children to the many different life paths out there. As a Finance and IT professional I believe I have a role to play in helping schools & kids access ideas, and opportunities for continuous development. I think we have an obligation to the communities we live and work in to provide that. At this point in my life and my career I wanted to get involved and give something practical back to the community that I am part of and helping schools shape our future citizens.

I moved to Crewe 6 years ago following my retirement from teaching. I started my teaching career in Middlesbrough and I have also worked in Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Essex.  I mainly taught in primary schools and my last post was as head teacher of a primary school in Dovercourt. I am looking forward to being a member of the governing body and I am committed to working hard for the benefit of Edleston PrimarySchool.
