Local Governing Body…
Meet our Governors
As part of my role, I sit on the Local governing body. The Local Governing Bodies in our schools play a vital role and offer both support challenge to the school. They are part of our Trust Governance Structure and offer the local voice to the Board of Directors.
Mrs Heather Connor
Community, Admissions & Safeguarding
My name is Heather Connor and I am a mum to three boys, two of whom attend, and are thriving, at Wilcombe. I wanted to be a Governor so I can be involved and included in the decisions that will affect the future of their school. I also have 20 years teaching experience in primary schools and hope this will put me in a good position to help to make a positive impact at Wilcombe.
I am the Year 2 teacher at Wilcombe and the staff governor. It is my role to bring a staff perspective to the board and share the views and where appropriate, the concerns of staff. I find working alongside the other members of the governing body both interesting and rewarding, ensuring that duties towards all of our children at Wilcombe are fulfilled.
As a mum, grandma and living in the area I want to contribute to the local community. I’m a retired teacher and spent many years teaching in primary schools. My roles have included ‘Special Needs’, Teaching English as a second language, and Literacy, particularly reading.
As a community governor I try to be ‘hands on’, and I want to support the school to achieve all that it can. I’m in school on a regular basis and have got to know the staff and to work with some of the children. I am very impressed with the care, commitment and welcome of the staff and friendliness of the children.
