Governor Profiles

Mr Geoff Boyd

Geoff Boyd, Chair

Link roles: Special Educational Needs (SEN), R

I have been a governor in schools for many years following work as an Education Administrator in a local authority and then 20 years as a finance consultant to individual schools and local authorities around the country.

My children were educated in Bromley schools as are my grandchildren now.

This is my third year as Chair and I am honoured and privileged to have been given this role at a time of continuing change for education in general and Tubbenden in particular.


Richard Batchelor

Link role: Achievement and Curriculum

I have been actively involved in education since 1974 as a teacher, deputy head and, for 20 years, Headteacher of St Mark’s CE Primary School in Bromley. I have also been a Senior Education Adviser in Bromley and, for 3 years a School Improvement Adviser. I have been a governor of primary schools since 1985 and was a governor of a secondary school for 6 years. I am glad to bring this experience to Tubbenden Primary.

Alan Bloodworth

Link role: Training

I was elected as a parent governor in April 2015.  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.

Sarah Davey

I love my job and consider it to be the best job in the world; I believe strongly that all children should be given the best opportunities to reach their full potential in all aspects of school life.  As a teacher, I am passionate about maintaining high educational standards for the school, whilst aiming for excellence, both now and in the future. I hold the interests of Tubbenden very much at heart and have welcomed the opportunity to be a Staff Governor.

Kevin Liu

Link Role: Resources

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 2 boys spending a combined 9yrs at Tubbenden to look forward to, I want to give our children the best possible start.


Malcolm Ming

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.

Colette Mohamed, Vice Chair

Link role: Pupil, Parent and Community

I am a firm believer in high quality learning for all and in helping others play to their strengths (regardless of age). I have over 15 years leadership experience in organisational change and am a recognised HR and Communications professional.  I currently work as a senior leader in the public sector.  I am a mum to three girls (year 2, Reception and one who will be at Tubbenden in the future).

Rob Sampson

I have been a Governor for 20 years first at The Highway and then at Tubbenden. I have seen the journey from two schools, to a Federation, a Primary, an Academy and then a Multi Academy Trust. I work for Barclays Bank in Business training which involves having excellent understanding of businesses and their financial performance. I have used my skills and knowledge for the benefit of the pupils’ education. I am also a SOLA Trustee.

Donna Williams

It is a great privilege to be a teacher and a staff Governor at Tubbenden Primary School. During my time at Tubbenden, I have had experience working in Year 2, Year 4 and Year 5 and, as the children move from year to year, it is heart-warming to observe how our curriculum enables our wonderful children to develop a love of learning. In my role as English Subject Leader, I am passionate about Talk4Writing and its role in nurturing children’s love of reading and writing.

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