My role as a Governor is to support the school to continue to provide an excellent education for children, now and in the future.  I work for the local council and I bring many years of experience of managing in public organisations which I am pleased to be able to bring to the school.  As a parent of two Brassington pupils, I have a personal interest in making sure they and all the other children at the school have the opportunity to do their best.  I couldn't have chosen a better school for my children and through working with the other Governors, headteacher and staff I will do my best to ensure its future success.

I have always believed that the school is at the heart of our village community and as a parent of two Brassington pupils I want to ensure that we continue to provide a safe, supporting and exciting environment for our children to grow and learn, whilst also supporting our staff in continuing to deliver academic success and ‘bring the best out in everyone’. As a Chartered Engineer and Water and Environment Manager, I will hope to use my experience to support aspects of school life wherever possible, with an eye on environmental impact and sustainability, to ensure that our school continues to be a vibrant hub of our community in Brassington.

Andrew Mason, Parent Governor
Committees: Full Governing Body, Finance and Premises Committee

Living in Brassington for 8 years I have been involved in helping to drive forward a number of community projects.  As a parent of one child at Brassington Primary School I have a keen interest in helping support the school.  Ensuring the Brassington Primary School remains at the heart of the community is essential.  I have worked in multiple companies over the last 20+ years developing skills in Design, Finance, ICT and Management.  I will bring these skills to support the school to ensure it continues to be a highly respected educational centre in the Brassington Parish and the Derbyshire area.

I have been involved with Brassington Primary School for the last 12 years with all 3 of my children attending the school. My role as a governor is to help the school continue to provide an excellent and well rounded level of education of all who attend. I have worked in  Outdoor Education for the last 30 years and a keen advocate for the Learning Outside the Classroom environment. Brassington provides a great environment for learning and I look forward to working with the Teaching staff and the children.

Richard Wilson, Parent Governor

Committees: Full Governing Body, Finance and Premises

I have been active member of the Brassington community for many years while Brassington Primary school has provided an excellent education to my children since 2009 and continues to do so. It is my intention, as a governor, to work with the school staff and the other governors to ensure the highest standards possible are maintained in terms of the children’s educational outcomes, their well-being and happiness. Working in the aerospace industry for more than a quarter of a century, the need to work collectively or individually to overcome complex and demanding challenges within a highly regulated environment is normal and I will apply this experience to my work as a governor.
