Carclaze School Governors
How To Become a Governor
Governor vacancies are advertised with a description of the skills required. There will always be a minimum of two parent Governors. Parent Governor vacancies will be advertised to all registered parents. Interested parents may apply to be selected for this role. Staff Governors are elected by School staff. All other Governors are appointed by The Peninsula Learning Trust. Interested potential Governors may apply for vacancies when advertised.
We currently have a vacancy for a Parent Governor. Please contact the school for an informal chat and to find out more details.
The Governors would like to thank Ann Teague who has stepped down after four years as Teacher Governor. Ann has been dedicated to this role and we will miss her input as a Governor.
At this time, we also say goodbye to Sophie Bertholon who will no longer be able to commit to the role of the Governor. Sophie has brought energy, enthusiasm and excellent questioning skills to the Governing board and we wish her well for the future with her work and family commitments.
At the next meeting we will be welcoming Andy Williams and Jenny Wood as new Governors. Andy has been appointed by the board and Jenny will be the new teacher Governor.

Mr David Moseley
Vice Chair of Governors, Parent Governor 29/09/15
I have been a parent governor at Carclaze since Autumn 2015 and currently supporting Maths and Science.
As a chartered chemical engineer, I am currently the Minerals Technology Manager at Imerys and I am hugely passionate about both subjects. My wife Emma works in the school office and I have two daughters in years 5 and Reception, both of whom are thriving in the Carclaze environment. It's a privilege for me to give something back to the community.
Mrs Jenny Wood
Hi, I am a mother of two children aged 6 and 9. I am very passionate about teaching the next generation and love my job. I have been teaching for 13 years in each of the different year groups in various primary schools in Cornwall. For the past 5 years I have taught at Carclaze. During my time at Carclaze I have undertaken various roles such as Pupil Premium, Real Projects and Science Leads. I have undertaken and completed the National Professional Qualification for Middle leaders. Most recently I have completed the Diploma for Trauma Informed Schools practitioner and plan to implement that at Carclaze through my PSHE and values role. My career has been very exciting at Carclaze with many different opportunities made available to me. I hope as a teacher governor I will learn about different aspects of school life.
Miss Karen Littler
Teaching Assistant/Governor 8/10/15
I have worked at Carclaze School (Infant School Initially) since February 2009 and I have been the Student Support Governor since the summer of 2015. I have worked across all of Key Stage 1 and 2 supporting class groups and individual pupils. I now teach Spanish throughout Key Stage 2. I really enjoy the variety and versatility of my role including the rewarding responsibilities of governor.
Mrs Helen Knight
Board Appointed Governor 12/05/17
I have been a parent governor since July 2017. I have 3 children, 2 of whom attend Carclaze and my eldest daughter is at Penrice academy. My background is that I have been a primary school teacher since 1997. I have taught all ages from 4-11 and I was a member of the senior leadership team at my last school. My life took a massive turn of events when I was diagnosed with a serious illness in 2015. I am now enjoying family time and voluntary work whilst I fully recover. I am still passionate about education and believe that my experience and expertise will play a valuable role in helping Carclaze on their continual desire for excellence and achievement.
Mrs Adeline Michel
Board Appointed Governor
I am a primary school teacher in France and family moved in Cornwall in 2018. I am passionate about education, it is important for me to take part in school life. I also have a master degree in research in didactic with special interest in learning processes (reading, writing). New as a governor, I wish to contribute with an outsider perspective. As a personal perspective, this will be the opportunity to meet new people and get involved in the community.
