Meet the Governors

Chair of Governors

Mrs Jackson

Having been a teacher, School Adviser, Principal Adviser and Education IT Manager in North Wales and several NW Local Authorities my professional life focussed on support to schools to ensure the delivery of high quality education, ensuring that all pupils are given the opportunity to fulfil their potential in a safe and nurturing environment. During this time I worked closely with Primary, Secondary and Special Schools and also settings with specific needs such as Hospital Schools, residential settings for pupils with complex learning requirements and pupils with sight and hearing impairments. I have been a school governor for many years and, on moving to the Lune Valley area became a governor and subsequently Chair of Governors in my local school. In 2016 I joined the Governing body at Archbishop Hutton’s and became Chair of Governors with nominated responsibility for child protection and PREVENT strategy, assessment and interventions and ICT. I also sit on Curriculum, Resources and Standards and Effectiveness committees and am part of the Headteacher appraisal team.

Vice Chair of Governor

Mrs De Feu

I was appointed as Foundation Governor in 2013 and currently serve on the SEC committee. As a retired head teacher of a local school I felt that becoming a governor would continue to make use of the expertise I have gained and my enthusiasm for education. I am particularly pleased to be able to serve as a governor for my local school.

I am a member of Carnforth Inner Wheel, Warton Crag WI, Warton Art and Craft Group. I attend St. Oswald’s Church and enjoy reading, cooking and crafting.

Foundation Governor

Rev Figg

I have been Vicar of Warton and Borwick with Yealand since September 2017. Previously I was Vicar of Kildwick, near Skipton in North Yorkshire, for 16 years and was a Foundation Governor of Kildwick CE VC Primary School throughout that time. I am very pleased to be a Governor of Archbishop Hutton’s School and will support the life of the school community in different ways. I visit the school to lead collective worship occasionally and also to enjoy lunch with the children and spend time with different classes.

As Vicar I am also a Foundation Governor of Yealand Primary School and a trustee of several local small charities.

I enjoy exploring the local countryside and visiting local cafes and tearooms (wherever good coffee is served!).

Co-opted Governor

Mrs Pilling

I have been involved with Primary School governance for over 20 years culminating in being Chair of Governors at an East Lancashire Catholic Primary school with two outstanding OFSTEDs. My family relocated to Morecambe and in 2017 I joined the governing body of Archbishop Hutton’s Primary School as a co- opted Governor and became a nominated Governor for Special Educational Needs and Disability. I look forward to working with the school team to ensure that every child in our care receives the best possible education.

Staff Governor

Mrs Burns

My name is Catherine Burns. I was appointed Staff Governor in 2015 after working at the school as a Teaching Assistant for 3 years. I am also a parent of a child in school. Before that I spent 20 years in food and accommodation management.

I believe very strongly in the ethos of the school and the importance of all children being given the best start in life. All staff at the school strive to achieve that and I will make it a prerogative to ensure that this continues. As nominated governor for training and curriculum I feel that these priorities will enable me to achieve this.

I look forward to being able to carry on supporting the school, staff and most importantly the children.

Parent Governor

Mrs Henderson

My name is Jane Henderson and I have been a parent governor at the school for some threeyears now. I have recently become chair of the Standards and Effectiveness committee. This committee monitors the quality of the curriculum and scrutinises attainment within the school.

I became involved with the governors as I currently have two children at the school. Being a teacher with over fifteen years experience, I am passionate about providing a quality education with high expectations and want to help the school to move forward.

Mrs Langman

My name is Della Langman and I have been a parent governor for about 3 years. I worked for 15 years in the plant hire industry in management and sales before I had my children. Both my boys attend the school and I have made school my priority. I will do anything I can to help our school to thrive. I am very involved with the village and community and have helped to organise lots of different successful fund raisers over the last few years.

Dr Stallard

For the last decade I have worked at the University of Manchester where I am currently Deputy Head of School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering contributing to teaching and research related to offshore renewable energy systems – for generating electricity from offshore wind, tidal stream and wave energy resources. I have lived in Warton since 2004 having moved to the area so that our children could enjoy a village school and this area of the country. I joined as a parent governor as I am keen to support the School in the ongoing development of an outstanding community in which learning is valued, enjoyed and supported.

I have an IT, assistive technology and education management background, am a qualified teacher and am currently employed by Jisc as a subject specialist working with universities, colleges and other Jisc members on various technology led consultancy / advice and guidance activities.
