Governor Details

Jackie Terry (Teaching, Learning and Assessment-Chair) (Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare) (Head of Governors) I have lived in Stroud for 17 years and my daughter is now in her sixth, very happy, year at the school. I chair the Teaching, Learning and Achievement Committee and currently hold the role of Maths Governor. I believe a good, solid education in “the basics” is the best way to help all our children enjoy learning throughout their life.

Christine Minett (Finance, Staffing and Premises Committee-Chair) I live locally and have been a governor at Stroud Valley Community school for over 25 years. During that time my three children have attended and flourished at the school. I am a co-opted governor serving on the finance and staffing committee and the teaching and learning committee. My lifelong career has been in supporting employment and further education. I am also a governor at Archway School.

Susie Walker (Teaching, Learning and Assessment) (Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare) I have lived in Stroud for 30 years and have been a parent governor since 2013 and have a daughter at the school. I'm on the Behaviour and Safety and Teaching and Learning Committees. I have spent most of my life as a community artist mostly within further education throughout the county. I frequently come into school to do art projects with the children believing that creativity is crucial to the wellbeing of all.

Elspeth Murano (Vice Chair) (Teaching, Learning and Assessment) (Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare) I moved to Fairford Gloucestershire, from London in 1998 and took up a full time teaching post at St Lawrence Primary School in Lechlade. In 2007 I left in order to work for the local authority as a Primary English Consultant and currently as an Education Adviser. I joined the governing body at Stroud Valley Community School in September 2014 and have recently been elected as Vice Chair. I serve on the Behaviour & Safety committee and the Staffing and Teaching & Learning committee. I enjoy reading, running and spending time with my teenaged children.

Mark Keogan ( Chair Of Full Governing Body) (Finance, Staffing and Premises) (Teaching, Learning and Assessment) (Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare- Chair) I have lived in Stroud since the early 90’s. My daughter started at Stroud Valley Community School in 2012 and is thoroughly enjoying her time here. I have been a Parent Governor since 2013 and was elected Chair of the FGB in 2014. I chair the Behaviour & Safety committee and serve on the Finance & Staffing and Teaching & Learning committees. I have always felt that education is the process of providing the tools required for learning in an environment that encourages their use.

Julie Howe (Finance, Staffing and Premises)

Christine Barrett (Teaching, Learning and Assessment-Chair) (Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare) As a class teacher and the School Senco my life at Stroud Valley is very busy and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Sarah Coldrick (Teaching, Learning and Assessment) (Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare) I am Sarah Coldrick and I am a governor with particular interests in early years education and safeguarding. I have work experience in both of these areas. I sit on the behaviour and safety committee and teaching and learning committee.
