Governors

The Chair of Governors: Mr Pete Jones

Lightmoor Village Primary School’s Governing body is made up of Governors from a range of different professions. All Governors have completed a skills audit and we ensure that when new Governors are appointed they can bring additional skills and expertise to the Governing Body. In October 2014 we reconstituted the Governing Body in line with the new DfE regulations.

The Governing Body meets at least twice a term. If you are interested in becoming a Governor or finding out more about the role, please contact the school office.​

Peter Jones - Chair

 

“My Name is Pete Jones and I have been a Governor at Lightmoor Village Primary since pre-construction, I was elected Chair of the Pre build Governing body which dissolved once the building was completed and I was happily elected Chair to the new Governing body in 2010. I have over 20 years experience in Governance, having been either a Governor/Chair/Vice Chair on three Governing bodies of Secondary and  Primary schools. I am the Link/Special interests Governor for the following; Children in Care/Safeguarding, SEND (Special Education Needs & Disability) and Pupil Premium. I am a parent with two children at the school and have lived within Lightmoor Village with my family for many years.”

I am married and have worked in Human Resources for many years, most recently for an IT company based in Telford. I enjoy volunteering in my local community and trying to make a difference. I am currently the secretary for the Lightmoor Village Community Group (LVCG) and I am therefore very aware of both the positives and challenges of living in our lovely village. I was keen to join the governing body at our school as I want to do my bit to ensure all of the children have a good start in learning the skills and behaviours needed to go on and do well in the world of work."

 

Ben Maguire

 

“My name is Ben Maguire and myself and my wife moved to Doseley from London back in 2012 when we were starting our family. As a boy I grew up in the Doseley/Lightmoor area and have always held a soft spot for this area and closely monitored the significant changes over the years. I have two boys with my eldest son now attending our school and loving every moment, and with my youngest due to join next year I wanted to get involved and help the school where I can. I’m currently Managing Director of a digital business based locally and hope to be able to add value to the governing body, I certainly want to roll my sleeves up and get involved.”

I have a background in education and take an active interest in the school’s curriculum as well as being part of the health and safety committee. It has been a pleasure to be part of this community and watch the school, and its pupils, grow over the years’
