Julie Childs

I live in Laceby with my husband and 2 sons, one of whom is still at Stanford, and have worked as a primary school teacher for over 20 years.
I have been involved in supporting the school as a governor for several years, and recently as chair. I am fully committed to supporting the school by working with the head teacher to improve standards, helping set a clear vision and strategic direction for the school and being a ‘critical friend’.
I am passionate about our school and believe it is a very special place for our children to grow up and gain the best possible start. The school works extremely hard in order to give our children the highest quality of teaching based in a supportive and encouraging environment, whilst having close links with the community and with the Stanford Trust.

Val Brumfield

Hello.
I am Val Brumfield, married, with one son. I have been a Governor at Stanford Junior and Infant School for twelve years, six of them as Chair of Governors. I was born in Laceby as was my father and grandfather and I attended Stanford School along with my two brothers.  I am a qualified (Honours Degree in Education) Primary School teacher and taught at Stanford School during my early career. I have over 25 years experience in senior management within schools, most in the position of Headteacher of a large Primary School. I have undertaken very varied training to update my skills necessary to the role of Governor. Being involved and working with children is a big pleasure.

Sue Wink

I am a Foundation Governor appointed by the Stanford Trust at Laceby School. The subjects I support are Music and Art, IT, SEN, and Out Door learning. I am also linked to Sunflower Class and enjoy working with them each week on various projects and accompanying them on School trips.
In my working life I was a Development Officer for Children’s and School libraries in North East Lincolnshire.
Since I retired, I together with other volunteers have reopened Laceby Library as a Community library. The library is going from strength to strength and has close links with Laceby School. Together we run Reading initiatives which are very well supported.
In my spare time I love gardening, looking after my daughters Cockapoo and supporting my son at track days and rallies.

Scott Smith

My name is Scott Smith and I have been a Co-opted Governor at Stanford School since November 2018. Since starting this role I have gained valuable insight into the life at Stanford School and truly believe that it is a unique place for pupils to grow and achieve in every way possible. I am married to my wife Clair and we enjoy walking our dog Archie in our spare time.
I work within the coal industry as a site manager where I hope to bring my high health and safety and financial abilities to assist the school where possible.
I am a member of The Grimsby Tri Club where I enjoy taking part in open water swimming, long distance biking and half marathon and full marathon training. My achievements include swimming from Barton to Hull in aid of The Humber Rescue charity, 70.3 Outlaw race at Nottingham and most recently becoming an ‘Iron Man’, completing the 140.6 Ironman distance race.
I look forward to continuing our work with staff, Governors and the community to continue the schools development and vision. 

Mr R Edgell

I moved to Laceby in 2017 with my wife and son following a successful 23-year military career in aeronautical engineering.  I now manage engineering compliance and asbestos management, providing governance to the executive team at British Steel Scunthorpe.  I am an active member of the British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS) specifically an Associate member of the Faculty of Asbestos Assessment and Management [AFAAM]. 
I have always been an active member of clubs, societies or had a secondary role with an outside organisation.  Most notably assisting young people in adventurous and leadership training and a keen advocate of the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.  Seeing first-hand the positive impact this has on young people is extremely rewarding. 
I have seen my son grow and develop with his time at Stanford School and have a vested interest in his continued growth and the quality of output from the education providers.  I look forward to collaborating with the Governors, School Team and being able to give something back.

Ms L Smith

My name is Lea Campbell and I live in Laceby village with my partner and 4 children who all attend Stanford School.
Myself and most of my family have attended the school over the years so I have had links with Stanford all of my life which has been a fantastic experience.
I am a qualified hairdresser and nail technician but have also taken on administrative work in the past.
I am looking forward to undertaking my new role as Parent Governor and supporting staff, children and families at Stanford.

Nigel Morrison

Nigel Morrison

Hello, I am Nigel Morrison.  I have returned to be a Governor at Laceby Stanford after a break of a few years.  I was a Governor for about fourteen years and was Vice-Chair for several years.  I have been a Trustee of the Stanford Trust for nearly twenty years being  Vice-Chair for the last five years. 
I have recently taken early retirement from teaching after working in several local schools for the last twenty-three years.  I am still working in schools as a supply teacher.
Both of my children attended Stanford School, before going on to Healing.  They are now at Franklin College.
My wife Emma and I are both members of Caistor Running Club and we can often be seen pounding the highways and byways of Laceby training for another race.  I have completed several marathons, half marathons and 10K races.
I am looking forward to working with the staff and governors to continue the school’s development.


Infant Singing Festival

On Wednesday we travelled to the Auditorium and took part in the Infant Singing Festival.

We have been working hard to learn the songs and we had the chance to perform with other schools from our local area.

We performed confidently and we brought some of that confidence and skills back to school.

We enjoyed our day tremendously. We were supported by school governors Mrs Wink and Mrs Tatler.

Mrs Wink commented “Poppy class were outstanding, listening attentively, singing their hearts out and enjoying every minute of the experience of performing on a stage to a live audience.”

World Book Day Governor Visit

At Stanford our governors take an active interest in everything that we do. Our English Governor is Jill Tatler. Mrs Tatler came into school nice and early and even shared the morning door duty with Miss Whiting. She chatted to parents and the children as they entered school for their exciting World Book Day.

We invited Mrs Tatler to join in with the fun and we gave her the very tricky job of judging the books bags to find the most creative designs in each class. She said that it was a really tricky job as every single one was an absolute winner!
