Link role: Risk

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.

Link Role: Resources and Community

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.


Abby Carter, Vice Chair

Link Role: Safeguarding

As a parent governor I am keen to ‘give something back’ to the school. I am a deputy head teacher within a primary school belonging to another highly successful local primary academy trust. Previous to this role I worked as a ‘Growth and Standards Leader’ within the same academy trust, strategically driving performance across all of the trusts schools. I am passionate about education and firmly believe that every child deserves an outstanding education. My professional experience has given me a thorough insight in how to support the schools strategic vision and ensure the already high standards of education at Tubbenden continue.


Laura Venn

Laura Venn

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.


Hannah Crisp

Link Role: Pupil Premium


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. 


Rebecca Deeks


I was elected as a Parent Governor in 2020.  I have a professional background in mental health and understand the importance of good emotional wellbeing and positive mental health in our children and teaching staff.  I have a love of learning and believe that all children should have the opportunity to have a positive learning environment in which to progress and develop.  I have experience of research and understand the importance of a solid evidence base when considering the best interventions for our children. I am passionate about environmental issues and consider it important that we empower our children to make positive decisions about the world around them.


Becky Casey 

Link Role: Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Governor


I have two children 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.


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