Chair of Governors - Reverend Paul Wilding

 

 

"I have had the privilege of being vicar in this area for some time and have built up a relationship with the school through assemblies and visits of the school for harvest and Christingle.

I am a Local Authority representative Governor and have been involved with school as a Governor for a number of years and played an active role as a Governor.

I am passionate about children reading and am excited by the challenges and opportunities which the new curriculum will bring.

My interests are in reading and history. I also enjoy the beauty of the area and think that we are well blessed for Forest school and outdoor learning."

 

 

Vice Chair of Governors - Mrs Julie Lewis

 

 

"I am currently vice chair of governors at Ysgol Pontsenni and have been a parent governor since May 2019. My current key area of responsibility is the school’s Additional Learning Needs provision as we start to implement the new Additional Learning Needs Code for Wales introduced in 2021.

 

I have lived in the Sennybridge area for most of my life, and I have many happy memories of when I attended Sennybridge School many years ago in the 1980’s!  I have two daughters aged 12 and 5. My youngest is in Blwyddyn 1 at Ysgol Pontsenni, and my eldest has recently started secondary school at Ysgol Gyfun Ystalyfera.

 

I decided to stand as parent governor because I felt it was important that the views of parents are reflected and represented on the governing body. I also wanted to play an active role in the school community as we collectively try to ensure that Ysgol Pontsenni provides our children with high quality educational opportunities and a wide range of extra-curricular activities to support their academic, social and emotional development.

 

I strongly believe that all parents have an important role to play in the long-term success of our school. I would encourage everyone to consider putting themselves forward as school governors of the future or get involved in supporting our active Parent Teachers Association to help with the great work they also do in supporting our school."

 

 

Parent Representative - Mrs Claire Moore

 

 

"My name is Claire Moore and I was elected as a Parent Governor in November 2020. I have specific responsibility for equal opportunities.

 

A little bit about me…I live on a farm in Trecastle with my husband and daughter who is in Year One at the school. Before moving back to the area in 2014 I had a successful career in the public sector which included strategy development and commissioning services for large organisations. The experience and skills I developed during this time have enabled me to support the Governing Body since joining 18 months ago.

 

I am an Independent Member on Powys County Council’s Standards Committee and have also recently been appointed to the same role on Brecon Beacons National Parks Standards Committee. 

 

Why I am a governor… I am passionate about being part of the team that continues to take Sennybridge School forward in its development. I would like to continue to strengthen the link between parents and the school and help to ensure that parents voices are heard. I am often at school picking up my daughter so please do say hello and let me know if you would like to have a chat about anything.

 

Being a governor at Sennybridge has given me an insight into the opportunities and challenges faced by the school, it has also given me a new understanding and appreciation of the hard work and dedication of all the staff at the school. It is an incredibly rewarding role being able to contribute towards shaping the future of our children’s lives, so they have the best educational opportunities possible."

 

 

Parent Representative - Mrs Sabrina Neill

 

 

"I love children and the outdoors.  I am the mother of Pietro and Emma, both of whom attended Sennybridge C.P.. I work part time in Ysgol Penmaes as a TA and I am a qualified L3 Forest School leader. I’m collaborating with Nature Child and Mountstreet Junior school leading Forest school sessions as part of a wellbeing and outdoor learning pilot project. I did part of my training as TA and Forest School Leader in Sennybridge C.P. School. Once qualified I volunteered in school and I took every class out for 6 sessions of Forest School over the period of a year. The school than realised the potential of it and decided to run Forest School on a regular basis. So, after having given some of my time as a volunteer, I became a member of the Governing body to be still a part of the school."

 

Parent Representative - Mrs AnneMarie Davies

 

 

"I am passionate about the education of our children and have three children who have all attended the Welsh Unit at Sennybridge Primary School.  The youngest of whom is in Key Stage 2.  They have all used school transport and taken part in extra curriculum school clubs.  I believe in a child centred approach to learning and the voice of the child. I have worked with Powys County Council Schools, Children's and Business Support Services and am aware of new legislative and policy developments.

 

Sennybridge School is at the heart of our community and I actively support other local groups and events. As a parent and professional I am aware of the challenges and opportunities for rural children, young people and schools.

 

I am committed to positive learning experiences for all and have the enthusiasm and energy to represent parents and develop Sennybridge into a 21st Century School."
