Chair of Governors - Ex-offficio Priest-in-Charge - RE & Collective Worship/Modern Foreign Language

I am the parish priest of the Church of England Parish of Kentish Town, which has St Benet’s Church on Ospringe Road as its place of worship.

I arrived in Kentish Town as its new parish priest in July 2013. Before then I was working as an Assistant Chaplain and Junior Dean in the University of Oxford.

I frequently find myself around our school. I lead collective worship each week, and also help teach RE.  Amongst our school’s governors, I have responsibility for reporting back to the governing body especially on matters appertaining to worship, RE, and the Christian ethos of our school.

Before the arrival of my children, I worked in marketing. This included working for the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the Southbank Centre, the Barbican and subsequently the Energy Saving Trust and Trees for Cities. As a result of being one of a team of volunteer teachers for St Benet’s Sunday Club, I have chosen to pursue a career in education.

I am undertaking a teaching support course at a local college and am sharing my work experience commitment between Tufnell Park Primary School, and Kentish Town C of E Primary School.

Local Authority Governor Children Families and Communities Committee Expiry 10/09/2022

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 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.

Rachel Wrangham

Chair of Curriculum and Monitoring Committee - Parent Elected Governor - Expiry Date: 30/09/2020

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.

LDBS Governor Expiry 31/08/2022 - Pupil Premium, High Attainers/G&T, Reading Recovery and HR

My name is Gillian Dale-Skey and I have been a governor at our school since 1996.  In 2000 I was invited to the be Vice-Chair and in 2012 I was elected to take over as Chair of Governors at our school, a post I am very honoured to still hold.

I have a long and deep connection with the school, having been a pupil here between 1963 and 1970; my children also attended the school between 1993 and 2007.  Having had such a fantastic educational start in life given to me and my children by the school makes me want to repay that by supporting the school as a Governor.  I am particularly interested in the role the school takes in providing a full and broad curriculum especially in respect of those children who are disadvantaged and may find it difficult to access all areas.  I believe that every child should be able to have the opportunity to succeed.

My background is in Compensation and Benefits and I have worked across many sectors of industry including universities and charities. I now own my own business providing Payroll and HR Consultancy and Training services to both the public and private sectors. I am also a Director at the London Diocesan Board of Schools Academies Trust and a Director of The Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals.

Father Nigel Palmer

Deanery Synod Governor

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.

Staff Governor Expiry 31/05/2019

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.
