Angela Glithero, Local Authority Governor and Chair
Committees: Full Governing Body, Finance and Premises Committee
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.
