( Co-opted Governor)
I’ve been a governor at Ranvilles since 2004 and I took up the position of chair when our previous chair (Mrs. Pam Smith) retired at the latter end of 2009. I handed the baton of chair over to Andy Marshall in September 2017I still enjoy every minute of my time as a governor at Ranvilles, a role that’s rewarding to see the children join our school in year three and grow until they leave us in year six. It’s very gratifying to be able to support the children in their education and prepare them for the future.
Working in close partnership with committed governors is a real privilege. As Headteacher I am able to ensure that the school maximises opportunities to build on a wealth of professional expertise to ultimately benefit the children. I am a member of both the Resources and Curriculum committees and genuinely thrive working in partnership with all stakeholders to lead the school team as effectively as I can.
(Clerk to Governors)
I have been a Clerk to Governors for two other local schools when the opportunity arose for the clerking position at Ranvilles Junior School. I took on the RJS clerking role in April 2016. My role is to provide administrative support to the governing body and offer legislative advice as required. I find the clerk role very interesting and enjoy supporting the governors in their role.
(Co-opted Governor and Chair of governors)
I’ve been a governor since October 2012. I am also a ‘Children’s Champion’ with UNICEF and work to promote Rights Respect and Responsibility. I find it an honour to work with students all over the world, drawing on my past experience in the ‘struggle’ for freedom in South Africa. I am passionate about people and information technology. I believe that our children are the future and as such enjoy inspiring both students and teachers in promoting respect, peace and harmony. I also believe that education is the most powerful weapon that we can use to change the world. I am honoured to be a governor at Ranvilles Junior School and look forward to serving the school. I became a community governor at the beginning of 2012 and have enjoyed meeting all the friendly colleagues, staff and children. I have been associated with the school for a number of years but my commitment was greatened when my children were on campus. I was a governor at the Infant school in those days, as well as the Chair of the Friends of Ranvilles.
As of September 2014, I became a co-opted governor and I am currently a member of the Curriculum committee.
I have worked at the University of Winchester for the last twenty years, training teachers. I serve on a number of education charity committees, including as Chair of the Schools Music Association. I have always been associated with lobbying to keep education for all children’s benefit.
Since joining the governing body in 2011, I am really enjoying my work as a co-opted governor and look forward to continue working with a vibrant and interesting school as it develops new and exciting pathways for its children.
(Local Authority Governor)
I joined the Governing Body in the April 2010, as a parent governor. I have one son at the school and two other sons who attended before going to secondary school. Having a career which involves working with schools and governing bodies, becoming a governor at the school seemed an obvious way in which I could contribute to the school. My husband is also Chair of Governors at the Infant School.
I am the Schools and Childrens’ Services HR Business Partner for Hampshire County Council, the strategic lead for supporting senior managers in the Children’s Services Department, Headteachers and Governors across Hampshire on a range of HR issues. I have a key role in dealing with changes arising from employment and education legislation and the consequential changes in policies, procedure and practices. My role includes consultation with the Department for Education, Childrens’ Services in HCC, Headteacher representatives and the recognised trade unions on behalf of Hampshire schools.
I currently chair three committees – Resources (which oversees matters related to school finance, buildings, staffing and health and safety); Pay (which makes pay decisions in relation to staff at the school); Performance Management (the committee responsible for appraising the Headteacher) and I am also the lead governor for safeguarding/child protection. I joined the Governing Body as a Community Governor in July 2012 and enjoy working at a strategic level with the school leadership team and other governors to ensure the school continues to grow and improve.
My family and I moved to Fareham four years ago and before this we lived in Somerset. Since joining the governing board in January 2016, I have been sitting on the Finance Sub Committee and I will soon start to develop and strengthen my knowledge of the school by joining the Curriculum Sub-Committee. Working within Human Resources, I have learnt plenty of life / professional skills, which will be beneficial to my new role as a School Governor. As a parent and a Co-opted Governor, I am keen to ensure that Ranvilles provides the best possible education for our children, and I look forward to contributing towards the future development of the school.
I joined Ranvilles Junior School as a Co- Opted Governor in March 2016 and I have recently taken on the role of Policy Governor.
I really enjoy being a school governor and I believe this gives you a real insight into the education of your child and why the early years are so important to their development. Since becoming a school governor I have gained a better understanding and a new appreciation for the roles and responsibilities of running the school.
I am happily married with a young Son whom I hope will be lucky enough to attend Ranvilles Schools in the future. I work in Finance and Resources at a Local Authority. In my free time I enjoy playing and umpiring netball matches at a competitive level, reading, arts and crafts and exploring new places with my family.
(Vice Chair of Governors and Co-opted Governor)
Working with children and families has been at the heart of my professional life since late 2009, taking the step into governance has always been an aspiration and I am delighted to now finally have the time to commit to this.
Appointed to the Governing Body as a Co-Opted Governor in March 2017 I quickly developed a better understanding of the specific roles of the Governing Body and the sub committees that meet frequently to ensure that we are all working together to achieve the Key Priorities within the school’s Strategic Plan. Together, we help to ensure that strategic leadership is effective, the school’s vision is clear and the educational and financial performance of the school are appropriately monitored.
From a personal perspective, I value education and believe that we all have a role to play to ensure that our children have the opportunity to learn and grow in a safe, secure and nurturing environment.
Recently elected to the position of Vice-Chair of Governors I am looking forward to working in partnership with all members of the school community in shaping the future direction of Ranvilles Junior School.
My name is Bobby Mehta and I joined the Governing Body at Ranvilles Junior School in January 2018 as a Co-opted Governor.
I have worked in the education sector for almost 20 years and I am currently working at the University of Portsmouth as the Director of University of Portsmouth – Global which oversees the University’s international development activities.
I as currently have my two children studying in Year 6 and Year 3 at the School and I have also previously served as a Parent Governor at a Primary School in Wales before relocating to Hampshire.
I want to be able to utilise all my experience and knowledge working in the education sector and as a parent to ensure that our children get the best quality education at Ranvilles Junior School.
I joined Ranvilles Junior School as a Parent Governor in January 2018. I have run a successful business for the last 11 years and dealt with Cash Flows, Budgets, Finances and dealing with Customers with professionalism.Myself and my wife are Foster Carers and have been for almost three years, and we have three boys with us until they reach their majority. We have an excellent insight and understanding of the system and processes for Looked After Children, and have a child that will be in Ranvilles for the next seven years as the youngest is in Ranvilles Infant school now. I feel I can bring firsthand experience and knowledge to the Governing Body on any issues regarding procedures for dealing with the Local Authority for Looked After Children. My wife’s children went through Ranvilles and we have lived in the local area all our lives.
I became a governor in January 2018 and I am still very new to the role, slowly but surely learning everything that goes with being a school governor. I have two young girls who will both spend their early years of education at Ranvilles Junior school and so I wanted to not only help shape their learning and development but to all of their friends and peers also.
I hope that I can bring to Ranvilles Junior school my knowledge of the financial industry in which I work as well as supporting the school where possible with Mental Health as I am a qualified Mental Health first aider.
It is a real honour to be part of this community and school family and I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible.
