Our Governing Body:
Chair of Governors
I first became a parent governor three years ago when my children were both at school in Glasshouses since when I have become more and more involved with school life. I have worked in education for several years in primary, secondary and in private tuition. I have recently become chair of governors and I am looking forward to leading the governing body through the coming months as we continue to set the very highest standards of teaching and learning, working with staff and parents to help each child achieve their potential.
I joined the board of school governors on a co-opted basis in November 2016. I have a keen interest in the school as part of our community and have previously spent a number of years as a pupil mentor in South Wales secondary schools. I currently work in the transport sector as a Stakeholder Manager. Outside of work I enjoy travel, cooking and walking and spending time with our grown up family.
Staff Governor (HT)
Miss Thornber is the Head Teacher at Glasshouses and also sits on the Governing Body. Miss Thornber has been Headteacher at the school since September 2017
I am a Co-opted Governor at Glasshouses Primary School and I joined in September 2014. I currently have one child at the school. I have always had a keen interest in education and I focus on core subjects and have a great interest in SEN. I also work in education as a member of the EN support team at Boroughbridge High School. In my leisure time I exercise my keen interest in science and history.
I was first a governor at Glasshouses in 1999 when my son was at the school. I later was a governor at Nidderdale High School for a further eight years. Now, the wheel turns, and I was co-opted as a governor at Glasshouses again at the beginning of 2018 with my grandson attending the school.
Outside, I enjoy cycling and sing in the Nidd Chorale.
Link Governor for Literacy
I was elected Parent Governor in December 2017 and have taken on the role of Link Governor for Literacy and have joined the Data Committee. As a former teacher, and coordinator of an Early Childhood Council, I hope my background in education and community work will help me make the most of this role. I currently have two children in school. Outside of school and work, I enjoy spending time with my family, hiking, and photography.
