My name is Donna Sherratt and I am the Chair of Governors. I have 2 children in the school and joined the Governing body in May 2015 and became a Chair in September 2016. Professionally, I have an Early Year Degree and Leadership qualifications, I have worked in Children’s Early Intervention services for 16 years. I am ambitious for the children at Robert Bakewell School and work alongside the Headteacher and staff team to achieve the best learning environment.
Should you need to contact me, my details can be obtained from the school office.
Andy Pask - Vice Chair
My name is Andy Pask, I am a parent governor and joined in September 2019. I have three children at Robert Bakewell. Professionally I lead an international charity that works in Africa and South-East Asia to help communities access their rights to education, healthcare, justice and land. I am passionate about seeing young people thrive at Robert Bakewell and am committed to supporting the Headteacher and the staff to create an environment where everyone can fulfil their potential.
Robert Bakewell is an incredibly special community of children, parents, staff and Governors, and I have been lucky enough to be a teacher at the school in a variety of roles for almost 10 years. 6 years ago I became a Staff Governor and enjoy being part of our active and dedicated Governing body and having opportunity to represent the voice of our dedicated and hard working staff in meetings and decision making.
Hello, my name is Rev. Ellen Lockwood and I’m a recently ordained minister on the leadership team at New Springs in Loughborough. I’ve a long history of working with children, young people and schools, in an out of the school environment and so I’m really excited to be on the Governor team at Robert Bakewell.
I am so pleased to be a part of this amazing school and am looking forward to seeing what I can bring to make the school experience even better.
I am an LSA who currently works in foundation. I joined Robert Bakewell in 2018 and joined the governing body in 2019. As this was the school I had attended when I was younger I hope to give back a little of what was instilled in me. I plan on representing the non teaching members of staff on the governing body. Since joining Robert Bakewell I have realised all the staff members have got the childrens best interests at heart and wish to support them in the best way possible. We have a really strong team to take on any challenge and I hope to be a part of this journey for years to come.
