Who are the Governors of North Baddesley Juniors?

 

Jim Bird (Co-opted Governor) Vice Chair

I have lived in North Baddesley for over 31 years; our four daughters have all been past pupils of the Junior School and are now variously preparing to study Occupational Therapy at University, a graduate in Speech and Language Therapy working locally, a Health Visitor trained to Masters level at local Universities, and the eldest a history graduate working in London. My wife was an early pupil of the Junior School.

Professionally I am a trained nurse, working for the past 22 years as lecturer and Senior Admissions Tutor in nursing at University of Southampton; I also continue to work as a nurse. My professional interests include the personal and professional values of students and trained nurses, support for people with long term health needs, careers in / selection strategies to the nursing profession (book published) and the interface between professional and lay / voluntary care.

I am leader of True Life Church (which meets in the Junior School on Sundays). I am very involved in helping lead and manage activities the church contributes to the community e.g. Community Life Centre, Rock Solid Youth Project and Footprints youth group. This also involves lots of time with great people and liaison with other community groups and statutory organisations – I am passionate about serving, caring for and raising the aspiration of the North Baddesley community.

I have been a governor for over 22 years, including many as Chair of Governors. I am currently Chair with particular interests in resources (finance / the premises), staffing, extended services and pupil achievement in mathematics. I am a firm believer in education being one of the keys to growing successful adults –academically, personally and socially, children are the present as well as our future generation! Our school in North Baddesley has a vital role to play in working with our children, families and community to help pupils make the best use of opportunities, raise their aspirations and to progress and enjoy their learning in a safe and happy atmosphere.

 

 

Vicki Rowlands  (Staff Governor)

I have been a staff governor for the past 4 years. One of my key roles is to provide a link between staff and governors as well as giving a staff perspective on issues discussed. I enjoy being actively involved in decisions made in order to continue to move the school forward. I feel that my role is key as I am fully involved with the day to day running of the school and as Assistant Headteacher am well placed to give a schools view point on a wide range of issues. I thoroughly enjoy my role as a governor as it enables me to be involved in a different aspect of school life.

 

Neil Hardy (Head teacher)

As Head teacher I have the responsibility of running the school on behalf of the Governors. I work alongside the Governors to implement government policy and ensure the quality of the education that the children receive. Governors provide valuable skills to help improve the school - as a team we continual strive to ensure the best outcomes for all of the children at NBJS. Prior to NBJS I was Head teacher at Broughton Primary School and started my teaching career at Holbury Junior School (now Cadland Primary) which had many of the features of NBJS. I was a late entrant in education, previously working for Exxon at Fawley and in IT consultancy - my degree background being in Mechanical Engineering to Master's level with a PGCE from Southampton in 2001. My wife is also a primary head teacher and our two grown-up sons work in film & television. I'm sure all of the pupils at the school will tell you I have many daleks and Doctor Who bits and pieces in my office!!

 

Tim Brunt

 

 

 

Carly Green (LA Governor)

 

I have lived in North Baddesley since 2007 and became a governor at North Baddesley Junior School in 2019. I live with my husband and my son, who is currently a pupil at North Baddesley Junior School.  I have worked as a Health Visitor in Southampton for the past 10 years, with a background as a Midwife prior to this. Along the way, I also managed to fit in an interesting couple of years as a driving instructor alongside my career in the NHS. My current role involves training and supervision of staff, safeguarding, and I also like to maintain my skills through working directly with families. Outside of work, I enjoy yoga and have a renewed enthusiasm for football thanks to my son's keen interest! I was keen to become a governor as I like to contribute to our local community, and hope to be able to utilise my skills and knowledge to support the school and the education of local young people.

James Child (Co-opted) Chair

 

I have lived in the Romsey area for the past ten years, having moved to North Baddesley four years ago with my wife Ruth and two children. Prior to living in the area I spent a couple of years in Milton Keynes and before that I grew up in and around West Yorkshire. 

 

My background is in construction, having graduated from the University of Leeds in 2004 with a Master’s degree in Civil and Structural Engineering. I work currently as a Cost Estimator for a Tier 1 building contractor locally, and recently have become a Chartered Construction Manager through the Chartered Institute of Building. I have spent 15 years working on a wide range of multimillion projects at tender stage, including the bid for the extension to our own school for a company who didn't ultimately win the bid! I bring a career in cost and project management to the governing body, as well as having an interesting in estates management and building maintenance.

 

Outside of work I am currently the Beaver Scout Leader in North Baddesley, the Assistant District Commissioner for Beavers in Romsey and also into my 5th year as a Governor at North Baddesley Infant School. I am a keen rugby union fan, having climbed the county ladder in my youth, and like to swim, run and go for walks when I manage to get some time spare!

 

 

 

 

Chris Mahoney

I moved to North Baddesley with my wife a number of years ago to be near our daughter and grandchildren. My eldest granddaughter is a former pupil and my youngest is a current pupil of the school.

I am a retired businessman. In my career I have managed organisations in the Chemical, Flavour & Food Ingredients, Office Products and Golf sectors. This has included responsibility for operations throughout the UK & Ireland, Mainland Europe, India and Asia, I was also based in the USA for a short period. I am a professionally qualified accountant being a retired fellow of the Association of Chartered and Certified Accountants. Towards the end of my career I spent 8 years as a Trustee/Director of a charity that offered free and confidential support, information and counselling to young people (13-25).

I am delighted to join the board of governors of North Baddesley Junior School. Throughout my career I was passionate about creating an environment in which everyone could achieve their full potential and will use this philosophy together with my business experience and skill set to support the school’s continual successful evolution.     

Travis Musselwhite (Parent Governor) - Safeguarding Governor

 I joined the Junior School Board of Governors in September 2015 and am currently Vice Chair, sit on both the HR and Standards Sub-committees and am also the Safeguarding Link Governor.  I moved into North Baddesley in 2006 and have three sons, one currently at the Junior School and two at senior school but attended the junior school.

 

I spent ten years in the marine industry primarily skippering yachts and tall ships around the world and founded the children’s charity Ocean Youth Trust South in 1999 that uses Adventure Under Sail as a personal development opportunity for children and young adults between the ages of 12 and 25.  Seeking a shore based career, I transitioned into the Health & Social Care sector and joined a Residential Special School supporting Children with Severe Emotional and Behavioral Difficulties.  Continuing my career in this area, I progressed to become Regional Senior Care Manager overseeing three special schools and numerous Children’s Homes specializing in both Autism and Behavioral Difficulties.  After 12 years in this area, I diversified into a training role as a Safeguarding Consultant commissioned principally by Local Authorities to deliver safeguarding training to social workers across the country.  After working extensively away from home in a training capacity, I moved into Adult Services and am now the Director of Care and Support Services for the charity “Minstead Trust” supporting adults with Learning Disabilities.

 

I passionately believe in providing opportunities that enable children to progress academically, socially and develop essential life skills.  The Junior School plays a vital role in our community as a centre for children to develop and achieve.  As a father of three who all enjoy school, I am happy to continue to support the school in any way I can.

Merijn van Willigen (Co-opted Governor)

"I have lived in North Baddesley for over 10 years now, having moved there in 2006. I have one child currently at the junior school, so I have a personal interest in the opportunities they are provided with and the quality of the education they receive. I am a educator at heart. Currently I work at Roehampton University and was previously the Head of Hockey at the Portsmouth Grammar School, where I taught A level Physical Education, and Psychology. Previously, I was programme director for the BSc Sports Coaching at the University of Winchester, where I spent 15 years teaching on various sports related undergraduate degree courses. I feel that my specific strength lies in the area of extra-curricular development, and specifically sport. I also work as a talent development coach for England Hockey, and have a strong history in working with talented young athletes to develop their potential in their chosen sport.”

Mike Hiscock (Co-opted Governor)

I am married and have lived in the village since 1983. Our 2 daughters also live locally and were pupils at both the Infant and Junior schools. 5 of our 7 grandchildren are of school age and are also pupils across the schools.

 

I am a qualified Personnel Professional and was a member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development. I had a varied and rewarding career as a manager at British Telecom. My managerial experience covers a range of disciplines from contracts management, Estates Management to HR and Management Development.

 

I first became a school governor in 1986 and served at a secondary school in Southampton for 8 years until my work at BT required me to work away from home. Following voluntary redundancy from BT in 1998, I was employed by Hampshire County Council as a Governor Services Co-ordinator and in this role I trained, supported and advised governors and served on a number of governing bodies. In all of this time I had never had the opportunity to support ‘my local schools’ and on my retirement, I wanted to put this right! I have been a member of the Infant school governing body since 2015 and I am delighted to have joined the Junior school as a co-opted governor and look forward to supporting the school and its pupils over the years to come.
