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 the Foundation year, 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 – Associate Member

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

Hugh Lorimer – Foundation 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 – Co-opted Governor


I’ve been involved in All Saints’ school since my children were pupils here in the 80s. Married to Peter and previously a Parent and then Foundation Governor. I sit on the LTPS committee and am the named Governor for Special Educational Needs & Disability and Child Protection.  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, and particularly interested in the pastoral side of school life. As the school gardener I appreciate the need for good groundwork! I am a member and regular worshipper at All Saints’ Church.




Paul Vollans

I have spent all my working life journeying with adolescents and adults – as teacher, trainer, mentor and counsellor – as well as being engaged in their safety and protection.  I am committed to life-long learning and value greatly the opportunity to serve as a Governor.  I look forward to working with the Headteacher and Staff, and contributing to the support and encouragement of all the youngsters as they progress in their learning and personal development within the Christian ethos of the school.





Bryan Websdale – Co-opted Governor

Mr B Websdale

A father of three children, two of whom have left All Saints’ and one still happily attending. I wanted to be a Governor in order to try and help the school develop and progress positively.

I am very proud that All Saints’ is an inclusive and forward-thinking school however I am very aware that there is much work to be done in order to maintain its Outstanding Status. I am committed to ensuring All Saints’ continues to be a safe and happy learning environment for children long into the future.





Emma Williams – Associate Member

Victoria Wood – Co-Opted Governor
