Governors help to make school policy, they must meet at least once a term and may serve for a four year period. Governors have legal duties, powers and responsibilities, they can only act together, they cannot act as individuals.

My name is Carl Skerritt. I became a Parent Governor in October 2008 and a member of the Resources Committee with responsibilty for Maths. I hold a management position within Information Technology for a major utility company. When choosing a school we immediately liked Titchmarsh Primary school for its great reputation, friendliness, small size and values.

I became a governor to help support, and be involved with the school to help ensure that the excellent work already achieved is maintained and the school continues to thrive; providing a great environment for the children to learn and develop important skills and values for their future.

Attendance Record 2019-2020: 5/6 meetings

 I have been teaching at Titchmarsh Primary School for almost three years, and teaching for twelve years in total. I have worked in a range of different settings. I taught music as a private tutor and at NMPAT for three years and consequently trained as a secondary History teacher. I have taught a wide range of subjects at secondary: History, Philosophy and Ethics (RE), Geography, Humanities, Citizenship and PSHE, as well as teaching Maths and English 1:1 to disadvantaged pupils.

My first school was in Corby where children were often disengaged with education. Whilst there I learnt various methods employed by the school and individual teachers, to engage the parents and pupils in the school community.

My last school prior to joining Titchmarsh was the first all-through school in the country – taking children from 4-18. During my time there, I had a TLR for working with the Gifted and Talented children at KS3, and also ran the Lessons from Auschwitz programme and Holocaust Memorial Day within the school. I also did some cross-phase work in the Primary section which inspired me to take on a role in a Primary school.

At Titchmarsh, I have learnt a great deal. I have taken on the subject leader roles in Literacy, RE, Topic and PSHE and lead the school through its first set of KS2 SATs. I am currently doing my NPQSL qualification to develop my leadership skills. I hope to continue to contribute in a positive way to Titchmarsh Primary School.

I feel very privileged to join the Governing Body as a Foundation Governor. I believe that one of the strengths of Titchmarsh C of E School is the stable, close, nurturing environment where children's personalities, learning styles and  needs are well known by staff.  I have witnessed this through the experiences my own children have had at the school and my time spent with the children in my role as 'knitting club helper'.

Parent Governor

Date of Appointment: November 2020

 Both of my children are currently at Titchmarsh Primary having been drawn to the school for its nurturing Ethos and the whole school community feel it brings.

I was a Police Officer for 12 years based in Community Policing roles and know the value of building positive relationships with partner agencies. Since then I have spent 3 years working in Secondary Education in an area of high deprivation within the County, holding a responsibility for Safeguarding and year group wellbeing.

Since January 2021 I have been employed as an Early Intervention and ACE Support Officer working with young people who are at risk of, or involved with, gang-related violence.

All of my roles have given me broad knowledge and experience in child protection and Safeguarding legislatios and have allowed me to support some of the County's most vulnerable young people. I strive to achieve positive outcomes for young people and hope I can support the school in achieving this also.

Local Authority Governor

Member of the Resources Committee

Date of Appointment: January 2021

I have two children who attend Titchmarsh Primary School; currently in reception and year 2. I feel very lucky that my children are part of this school as they receive such a safe, happy, and warm welcoming family environment. It still to this day amazes me how the staff welcoming everyone into school each day is able to personally say hello to each child on a first name basis!

For the past 6 years I have worked for Northamptonshire County Council within the Pensions Service, where for the last 2 and a half years I have been working in the Governance and Regulations team. Prior to this I have always worked in the care sector where I have provided care and support to both adults and children.

I am very excited for my new role as a Local Authority Governor and look forward to helping the school to achieve their goals.

Hello, my name is Sally Marshall. I have two children and my current association with Titchmarsh primary is as a parent to a year 1 pupil. In addition to this my older son spent his primary education at Titchmarsh primary school, he transitioned into senior education in July 2018.
