I have been a Governor at Kentish Town for more than ten years, initially as a Parent Governor when my two sons were pupils. My career was in finance and I am now the school Treasurer and Governor with Financial Responsibility as well as being the Chair of the Governing Body.

Foundation PCC Governor/ Vice Chair of Governors/ Resources, Premises and Finance Committee - Expiry Date: 30/09/2024

I was elected as a parent governor in summer 2016.  I currently have three children at the school, and I live locally.  I became a parent governor to help support the school in their job of providing our children with the best possible educational start in life.

My background is in international development and social anthropology, and I now work as an Associate Lecturer for the Open University.  I have a longstanding interest in how organisations work, in community development, and in barriers to participation.  I’m passionate about the transformative power of education to allow children to grow up to make informed choices, to challenge unfairness, to understand the world, and to be thoughtful and informed citizens.

I have a particular interest in the Early Years, having been a trustee of Camden Community Nurseries, a charity that provides early years education locally.  I am also interested in the ways in which we measure and monitor children’s progress and attainment, to make sure that all groups are doing as well as they possibly can.  I’m very involved with ‘green’ issues locally.  I was behind the Play Street initiative, and am campaigning for safer streets and cleaner air.

My name is Fiona Lovering and I have been a Camden appointed Governor since 2018. My association with the school began in 2000, when my eldest daughter started nursery. My youngest daughter left the school in 2012, but I maintained my involvement through Monday morning guided reading as a volunteer with Key Stage 1 children.

I believe the importance of primary education can’t be overstated as it provides the essential building blocks for children to thrive and fulfil their potential as they continue through their education.

I am a Senior Development Manager for One Housing Group, a Housing Association based in Camden, and I lead the development of specialist, supported housing schemes across London and the South East.

I have lived and worked in the area for over thirty years and have always valued the ethos of Kentish Town CE School as an outward facing, welcoming and inclusive school, providing an outstanding education to children in the local community.

Parent Elected Governor / Chair of Children, Families and Communities Committee/ Expiry 9/10/2021

My name is Fan Yeung.  I have two sons. The younger one, Max, has been at Kentish Town since Reception.  I have a longstanding interest in learning.  I am a Montessori-trained teacher and have Master degrees in the Anthropology of Childhood and Cognitive Anthropology.  I am currently studying a MA in children’s book illustration.

I think the school is excellent; especially so for Max as he gets specialist support from the Autism Resource Base.  I really like the way the school functions as a community: with parents being involved in activities and fundraising, and being inclusive of all faiths and ethnicities.  I am grateful to be part of the school, and I am always looking for opportunity to give something back.  I believe that being a Parent Governor is another way to contribute.

I grew up in Lincoln and lived there until I was 19 when I moved to Chester to study Theology and, afterwards, Youth Work.  I have worked in several schools and youth projects, and in 2015 I moved to London to be a full time Youth and Children’s Worker for the Church of England. Over the last few years I have worked in North London, initially in Camden and now in Kilburn. As well as being a Children’s Worker, I am also a qualified palaeontologist, interested in the way animal communities relate to their environments and the way this shapes evolution. I have been very impressed with Kentish Town School and their commitments to teaching children about the environment and diversity in particular.

I was a parent at Kentish Town School for over 17 years and have lived in NW5 for over 25 years. I have a long-standing connection and deep gratitude to this school for providing my four children with an excellent education and sense of social responsibility.  As a Foundation Governor I consider how the school can keep its vision of The parable of the Good Samaritan in its focus.  I particularly care about the inclusive, community aspect of school life.

I was born in Lincolnshire, where my father was a sheep farmer, providing me with invaluable early experience in pastoral ministry. I studied English at university, and then taught English, and English language teaching skills in India for eighteen months as part of the Voluntary Services Overseas scheme. I have spent the best part of my working life in London, where I was a solicitor specialising in the glittering world of film and television for over thirty years. I took a further degree in Theology from St Stephen’s House in Oxford in 2015, where I first met Fr Peter Anthony, the Chair of our Governors, during Fr Peter’s time as Junior Dean there. I returned to St Stephen’s to train for ministry in 2016. I was ordained Deacon in July 2017, when I joined Fr Peter at the local church as assistant curate and was priested in 2018. I assist Fr Peter in leading collective worship in our school.

I am a governor of one other school in the London Borough of Camden.

I lived in Kentish Town for two years whilst I was training to be a solicitor. I find though much has changed, much, rather comfortingly, remains the same. I now live in Greenwich.

I have two children at Kentish Town Primary School and am very grateful for the help and support I have received from the school during our time here.

In my day job I am a senior manager in the NHS and, amongst other things, am responsible for school nursing, child development services and children’s mental heath services so hope I can bring some of my experiences into the Governors.

Finally, I have a personal interest in the different needs of children who are, or have been, looked after.

As a Parent Governor I really welcome feedback that I can input into the school so please do reach out if there are any themes and issues you would like me to raise.

I have been associated with Kentish Town School for over 21 years as a parent, Chair of the Friends of KTS, a teaching assistant and now as a teacher and governor. During this time there have been many exciting and significant changes to all aspects of school life. As a governor I feel passionate about being able to support the school as it evolves, whilst striving to ensure that it retains its unique inclusive character that is hugely valued by our wider community.
