Meet The Governing Board

 

Kevin Moyes - Chair of Governors - Local Authority Governor Term of Office Ends July 2020

 

I work for Save the Children International in a  very demanding senior leadership role as Head of Global Reward and Employee Engagement.  I am a full member of the Charted Institute for Personnel Development (CIPD) and have Finance and Premises Experience. 

 

I am also the Chair of Governors at St Blaise C.E Primary School and  an Executive  member of the Oxfordshire Governors' Association and a member of the Oxfordshire Schools' Forum. I have been a governor for many years and became a governor because I had a poor primary school education and wanted to ensure other children did not. As the Chair of Governors, I am responsible for helping the governing body to work as a team and to Challenge, support and contribute to the direction of the school.  I enjoy spending quality time with my wife and two daughters.

 

Other Areas of Responsibility within the school include:

 

  • Headteacher Performance Management
  • Member of the Staff Pay Panel
  • Member of the Resources Committee
  • Chair of Academy Working Group

If you would like to contact me then you can do so by e-mailing kprm1982@hotmail.com or sending any hard copy correspondance C/o School Office.

 

Rachel Caseby - Co-Opted Governor - Term of Office Ends July 2020

 

I have been involved in education for all of my working life having been a teacher, headteacher, headteacher mentor, parent and governor. More recently, I coordinated the parent admission advisers for the County, and now I provide governor training, and am involved in supporting governance within Oxfordshire schools.   I have experience of most areas of governance but am particularly interested in governors promoting excellence within teaching and learning.

 

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, pottering in my garden and baking.

 

Other areas of responsibility within the school include:

 

  • Whistleblowing Governor 
  • Member of the Performance Committee

Natalie Rushton- Staff Governor - Term of Office Ends July 2020

 

I am delighted to be joining the governing body in the position of Staff Governor.  I have been at Marsh Baldon since September 2015 and am currently in the role of  Year 4, 5 and 6 teacher and Literacy Lead. I have been teaching for around 5 years in 4, very different schools- both inner city and small village schools and have taught Years 1-6. I feel the experience of working in different types of schools had provided invaluable lessons which I have used to help develop and improve my teaching practice. My background before teaching was in the Performing Arts and I went to drama school for three years where I took a degree in Acting. I went on to work in touring Theatre for a few years, I decided to work a TA 'in-between acting jobs' and loved it so much I then did a PGCE and have never looked back.  Despite the hard work involved, I think teaching is the most rewarding job in the world and I feel extremely lucky to work with the wonderful children at Marsh Baldon. Helping them to grow and flourish is both a privilege and a pleasure. As Staff Governor, I am proud to support the school and our fantastic team and will strive to do all I can to ensure the success, welfare and happiness of the children at our lovely school.

 

Other areas of responsibility within the school include:

 

  • Member of the Performance Committee

Tina Flannery - Parent Governor - Term of Office Ends July 2020

 

I live in Chiselhampton with my partner Jamie and our two lovely boys Ethan and Lewis, who are both pupils at the school. I enjoyed a very long career in Catering and previously the Music Industry, where I lived and worked mostly in London.  I moved home to Oxford in 2009. I became a teaching assistant at an Oxford school and then briefly became a childminder so I could be home with my youngest. I am currently the School Manager of an Oxford Primary School. 

 

I decided to apply for Parent Governor as I hope I can make a positive contribution to the school. I am really excited to be a member of a governing body that will help bring Marsh Baldon Primary from strength to strength. And I am also really looking forward to the future years of both my boys being pupils here.
