Tubbenden Primary School

Governor Profiles

Becky Casey - Chair


I have a child at Tubbenden and have been actively involved in the school community since our oldest son started in 2015. In my day job I work with schools to help them prioritise the physical and mental health of children and young people. I will use this experience to support and challenge the school to ensure that strong and positive relationships between children, staff and families remain at the heart of Tubbenden, one of the main reasons for us choosing the school for our children. On becoming a parent Governor in November 2020 the learning curve has been steep but I would recommend the role to other parents/carers when the opportunity arises.

Michael Beard - Co-Opted Governor


I joined the Governing Body in March 2023 as a Co-Opted Governor.  My sons were well served by local primary and secondary schools and I am committed to supporting the very best possible education for all.  I hope to use my experience as a senior leader in the Civil Service to support Tubbenden Primary School and its pupils in as many ways as I can.  I am passionate about supporting the school in providing opportunities for all across the whole curriculum.

Sara Berkeley-Hill - Staff Governor


I have been a teacher at Tubbenden since January 2013 and I am also a parent of a child at Tubbenden.  I am not only dedicated to our school, but I also have a vested interest in the future of our children.  During my time at Tubbenden, I have had the privilege of seeing the children grow and achieve as they move through the school and understand the importance of having an ambitious and broad curriculum which both inspires and engages.  As a Mental Health First Aider and RHSE lead, I am passionate about the mental health and well-being of our students ensuring that they have the skills to help them succeed in all aspects of their learning and lives, both whilst at Tubbenden and beyond.


Prior to being a teacher, I worked within the music industry as a Production Manager for both big and start up record labels, so I also have experience beyond the classroom.  I look forward to using all my skills to help promote the further development of our school.

Simon Doyle - Parent Governor


I have been a Tubbenden Primary School parent since 2015, my youngest child is currently at Tubbenden, while my eldest spent seven enjoyable years here before moving onto secondary school.

Choosing to become a stay-at-home Dad has given me the opportunity to be involved full time in every aspect of my children's lives, wellbeing, and education, a role I thoroughly enjoy.

I am an Architect with experience of working in multi-disciplinary teams on complex construction projects across the UK and beyond.

A high standard of education for all enhances our children's life choices.  I wish to make a positive contribution to supporting the school and its pupils, expand on the range of skill sets of the school governors, and bring an analytical, creative and challenging mindset to the successful functioning of the Governing Body.



Steve Taylor - Parent Governor


We have two children at Tubbenden and are extremely happy with the fantastic experience they have both received at the start of their education.  In my day job I lead an Initial Teacher Training programme for a large Multi Academy Trust which collaborates with schools across Surrey and West Sussex.  Within this role I support trainee teachers in both Primary and Secondary schools.  I have previously taught in two secondary schools' and have experience of working in a variety of leadership roles.  I hope to use my knowledge and experiences to support and challenge the school to ensure that it continues to provide the best possible provision and outcomes for all its children and the wider community.

Lucy Tidbury - Staff Governor


I have been a teacher at Tubbenden for a number of years and I am currently the Science Lead and a Year Group Leader, roles I've embraced after contributing to various subject areas such as P.E, History, School Council, and Eco Committee.  Over the years, I've seen Tubbenden's transformation from a separate Infants and Juniors school to a Federation and, more recently, as part of a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT).  My commitment to the school extends beyond my professional role, as I am also a parent to two children attending Tubbenden.


Throughout my time, I've participated in collaborating with Bromley on the School Travel plan, achieving the gold award and supporting the integration of TLSE trainees, trained by SOLA  as well as trainee teachers from other organisations.  I've been involved in many decision-making processes and have supported the school's evolution into its current form.


I find great satisfaction in contributing to the development of the school's vision, ethos, and strategic direction.  My dedication extends to fostering an inclusive and engaging curriculum that inspires all students, ensuring their happiness and success.  As someone deeply connected to Tubbenden, I look forward to continuing my role further as a staff governor and shaping the future of the school and its pupils.



Fiona Wilson - Co-Opted Governor


My two sons both attended Tubbenden Primary School and it provided them with a great start to their education.  I joined the board in November 2022 as a Co-Opted Governor and relish the chance to support the school in providing an inclusive and stimulating environment to children in our community.  I am passionate about social mobility and everyone having the opportunity to fulfil their potential.  I am a senior leader in the public sector, currently focusing on strategy, governance and planning and want to bring those skills and my experience to the benefit of the school and its pupils.
