Meet the Governors

Welcome to our Governors' section
 

On this page you will find details of the names and terms of office for all members of our Local Governing Body (LGB), together with details of their category of Governor, positions of responsibility and details of any additional committees that they serve on. We have also included details of the business and financial interests of each Governor and information about any Governance role they play in other schools, as well as a full breakdown of the structure and responsibilities of the governing body of our school and its committees.

 

NB:  The FJS LGB does not have committees; we meet each half term as one group

Mrs S Long

 

I have worked in education for more than 20 years, most recently teaching and assessing FE students in Early Years Care and Education (I am a trained primary school teacher and have managed children's day nurseries previously.)  I have 2 children; one attends FCC and the other a local primary school.  Although I joined FJS LGB relatively recently, I have experience of being a Governor at other schools.  I am very excited to be part of the LGB at FJS as it transitions into a full primary.

Community governor

During my time as a Governor at FJS, I have worked closely with the school's leadership team and the other members of the LGB to help define the long term development of the school through challenge, strategic direction and executive decision making.  I have enjoyed interviewing new members of staff, visiting the school to develop future plans and objectives, as well as using my personal and professional experiences to help take the school forward.  I work for an international food and drink company as Head of European Sales Capability, responsible for defining the strategy and putting in place the training agenda across 50 countries.  I am a certified Executive Coach and Facilitator and have been in sales for the past 18 years, building partnerships with customers and leading large teams to business success.  I have always had a passion for education and have enjoyed having a chance to get involved in the local community to improve education provision for the children of Faringdon now and in the future.

Community governor

I joined the FJS governing body in the summer of 2016 as a Community Governor.  Previously, I was a Parent Governor for Faringdon Infants School for four years, and all three of my children (Jack, Addie Rose and William) have been through both the Infants and the Junior School in the past few years and they have strong and happy memories of their time there.

I am very committed to the development and success of Faringdon Junior School for staff, pupils and parents, and I am enjoying my new connection with the school through the governing body now that I am no longer a parent. I am the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) Link Governor and I am particularly interested in engaging with the parent stakeholder of the school.  In my professional life, I work for UK Schools, Primary for Pearson Education in Oxford, so I have a reasonable working knowledge of the Primary Education sector and some of the challenges faced by schools today.

I grew up in Oxfordshire and have recently returned after moving away. During that time I was a governor at my daughter's school in Portsmouth, which I really enjoyed.  I was keen to continue to help and support local schools upon my return to Oxfordshire and am pleased to have the opportunity to do so in my current role.
