Caroline Falconer – Vice Chair and Parent Governor
My eldest child is a pupil at All Saints’. I was delighted to join the Governing Board for the school so that I could have the opportunity to have a positive impact upon the school life of my children and our wider school community. I am a Clinical Psychologist specialising in child and adolescent mental health and am passionate about supporting the emotional well-being and overall development of children. I hope to bring my skills and experience in mental health, special educational needs and safeguarding to my role as governor, to help the school continue to achieve their aims and maintain high standards.
Revd Mike Coe – Foundation Governor
I’ve been the Vicar at All Saints Church since September 2018, having been a Vicar in East Sussex for 15 years previous to that. Before being ordained I worked as a sales and marketing manager, a Christian youth worker, an itinerant evangelist and a part-time Bible college lecturer. In my last post I was on the Governing Body of our large Church of England Primary School (chairing it for 3 years), and I was also a Director of the Diocese of Chichester Academy Trust (DCAT)
I see the partnership between the Church & the school as vitally important, both in terms helping every pupil reach their full potential, and in seeing the Christian ethos of the school improving in its relevance and application for every part of the school community..
Judith Osborne – Foundation Governor
I am married with 4 children, all of whom attended All Saints’ Primary School from Reception to Year 6. I am a fully qualified primary and secondary school teacher, specialising in Modern Languages. I have been an active member of All Saints’ Church since 1999 and have a particular passion for overseas mission and fairtrade.
As a Foundation Governor, I hope to serve the pupils and staff, helping to steer the strategic direction of the school, underpinned by its Christian ethos.
Stacey Simmonds – Staff Governor
I have been working as a teacher for 12 years covering a range of settings and have worked at All Saint’s C of E for 9 years. I have always enjoyed working with children and watching their curiosity and excitement flourish. Since working at All Saints’, I have been leading R.E. and have supported the school through two SIAMs Inspections and curriculum changes.
Being a Mum to two young children, we enjoy spending family time out and about in the fresh air walking and exploring the area where we live.
Taking on the role of Staff Governor, is an exciting opportunity to contribute to the School and help it to continue providing the best possible education for each child, looking ahead to the challenges and opportunities in the future.
Vacancy – Parent Governor
Alan Jarvis – Local Authority Governor
I was privileged to be asked to join All Saints’ Governing Board in March 2023. As a qualified accountant I spent my whole working career in education finance, supporting and challenging schools in using their resources to maximise educational outcomes for pupils. Immediately prior to retiring, I was Head of School Funding with Bradford Council and since then I have continued my interest in education by serving on a number of governing bodies within the Bradford District.
I am passionate about providing all pupils with access to a curriculum which is delivered by outstanding teaching within an inclusive environment which enables every learner to develop their full potential. And learning should be fun!
I have a number of voluntary roles in the church which I attend, and I am a trustee on a couple of Charity Boards. In any remaining spare time, I enjoy fell walking and gardening.
