Governor Bios

Kathryn Allen – Foundation Governor

Mrs K Allen

I have been a Governor for All Saints’ longer than I care to remember (though I am not the longest serving member!)  My 3 children (youngest now 26) all benefited from an All Saints’ education and I am pleased to be able to serve the school in this way to give something back. As a Foundation Governor, I am there as a church representative, so it is also a role of service to the church & God. It is a privilege to be part of a school where the Christian faith is so much at the heart of everything





Katie Dawson – Parent Governor

As a parent to a pupil in KS1, I have a genuine interest in how the school is run and governed. I have a wealth of experience in business and 5 years’ experience working as an insurance broker, providing insurance solutions specifically to schools. It is a privilege to have been offered the opportunity to join the Governing Board and I hope that my experience will have a positive impact on the school.

Emma Dowson – Parent Governor

I am a parent governor with two of my three children currently attending All Saints.  I volunteered as a Governor to try and help the school to continue its strong performance both academically and in providing a caring and inclusive environment. I have a passion for education and have worked as a primary school teacher for over 10 years in both Scotland and England. Prior to that I was a project manager working in environmental consultancy. I hope to bring my strengths and experience from both the private and education sector to make a positive impact for our school.

Caroline Harvison – Co-opted Governor

The Governing Body is at the heart of any academy/school. I had previously sat on a governing body as a Staff Governor for over 7 years and realised that I missed the role so was delighted to be offered the position of Associate Member at All Saints’ initially, before going on to be confirmed as Co-opted Governor. I volunteered to become a Governor at All Saints’ Ilkley in order to make a positive difference. I gained my QTS in July 2008 and have worked as a full-time teacher in the local primary sector ever since.  Alongside my main teaching responsibility, I have developed skills in communication, team work, the ability to work under pressure and an enthusiasm for working on whole school developmental areas. I play an active role in a team of senior leaders contributing to school SIPs and evaluating the work of colleagues to support this. I have also networked with other schools to review the provision of cross-curricular and computing work across the key stages at my previous and current school.

Lisa Jamieson – Parent Governor

Two of my three children currently attend All Saints’. Joining the Governing Board is my way of ensuring all pupils at the school receive the best possible opportunities to thrive, learn and develop into independent, curious citizens. As a Governor I can contribute my skills in charity governance, science education and museums to a school that I am deeply committed to and in return I am gaining a deeper understanding of education policy and practice at a local and national level. I am committed to ensuring that the work of the Board has a positive impact on everybody’s experiences of All Saints’.

Lisa King – Staff Governor

Michele Robinson – Head Teacher

Michele Robinson Headteacher

Belinda Seth – Local Authority Governor

Mrs B Seth

I volunteered to become a Governor while my twins were small, as a way to gain insight into an education system we would soon become part of. It is inspiring to work alongside skilled, caring and dedicated Governor colleagues, and interesting to apply my own financial and operational management experience within a very different context. I recognise that being on the Governing Board is a privilege and a responsibility and am committed to ensuring that, whatever the prevailing political climate, All Saints’ pupils of today and tomorrow continue to thrive to the best of their potential, while we navigate through challenging and exciting times ahead.




Carol Stewart – Associate Member


I’ve been involved in All Saints’ school since my children were pupils here in the 80s. Married to Peter and previously a Parent, then Foundation then Co-opted Governor and now Associate Member, I have a particular interest in Special Educational Needs & Disability and Child Protection and provide support to the Governing Body on aspects of wellbeing and pastoral care.  I have a life-long interest in education, being formerly a teacher and also involved in church-based youth work and residentials most of my life.  As the school gardener I appreciate the need for good groundwork! I am a member and regular worshipper at All Saints’ Church.





Victoria Wood – Co-Opted Governor

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.
