I was elected as a parent governor in April 2015 and Co-opted Governor in February 2019.  I passionately believe that all children should find enjoyment at school whilst realizing their true potential.  I’m a huge supporter of creativity and for children to maintain this throughout their school journey. As a Board Director and Marketing Consultant for 15 years, I bring leadership and strategic thinking to positively support the school and all of its pupils achieve success.

Leading large teams in a complex engineering setting, I bring an ability to understand people and drive the right outcomes to ensure our school not only succeeds academically, but provides the right environment for our children to grow into well rounded individuals.  With 3 boys spending a combined 14yrs at Tubbenden to look forward to, I want to give our children the best possible start.

Link role: Safeguarding

I have many years’ experience in adult education in a senior management role and have recently started a new career as a primary school teacher. In my role as parent governor, I am using all the skills and experience I have in this sector to help strategically steer Tubbenden Primary School to provide the absolute best for the children. I feel strongly that the early primary educational years are the most important in forming a solid foundation for a child's development.

At home I am a mum to three boys who all attend Tubbenden. At work I am an accomplished Senior Workforce Planning Leader, with a background in delivering data driven HR. As a governor I hope to bring the best of both of these to help create an environment where the pupils at Tubbenden develop a growth mindset, constantly evolving their skills and experiences to enhance their future lives and possess the agility to keep moving forward in an ever changing world.

As a long-standing teacher and leader at Tubbenden Primary School I strongly believe in supporting our school in providing children with the best opportunities and education possible.  My passion lies in the emotional well-being of children and staff, whilst I have also established a strong understanding of the assessments and expectations of the primary curriculum from my time leading Year 6.

Link Role: Pupil Premium

 I am driven by a desire to provide an outstanding education for all children, irrespective of background, and believe that all children can achieve great things given the right opportunities.  I currently work full-time as a Year 6 teacher and Phase Leader at an outstanding Beckenham primary school and am looking forward to utilising my experience in the education industry within my role on the board.  I became a Co-Opted Governor in October 2019 and am fully committed to helping to develop the best possible education for the children at Tubbenden and across the Trust.


Hannah Crisp


My name is Hannah Crisp and I have been a teacher for 6 years. This is my first year at Tubbenden Primary School but I have worked as part of SOLA since it became a MAT. I was a staff governor at my previous school (The Highway Primary) for 2 years before I moved.  I enjoyed getting to see the school from the perspective of the governing body and felt that my experience and knowledge of how a LGB works would be beneficial to TPS. As an experienced teacher, I feel that it is important to be able to share my knowledge with others to help the school develop. 

The Senior Leadership Team - made up of the Head of School, Deputy Head and School Business Manager – also attend the governing body meetings.
