Our Governing Body

The Burston and Tivetshall Partnership Schools Governing Body

These are photographs of our Governors to help you recognise and get to know your governors.

Helen Adshead, Co-opted Governor and Chair of Governors
I became a Governor in 2006, my main aim was to help support my children's education. My two children attended Tivetshall School. Since becoming a Governor I have thoroughly enjoyed learning about the world of education, and I believe our Partnership schools are amazing places to educate children.
I also am an associate governor at Harleston C of E Primary School.
I am a committed christian, and a member of the DC3 church based in Harleston. My other interests include Science, Technology and Gardening.

Rebecca Chamberlain, Parent Governor, Vice-chair of Governors and Chair of Improvement committee
I have an interest in music, ballet and I run Tivetshall Rainbows. I have 2 daughters at Tivetshall School and I love the family feel it has. I wanted to become a Governor to get involved in the running of the school and to know what is happening. I would like to see more joint activities between the partnership schools in the future.

Richard Lewis, Co-opted Governor and Chair of Finance committee

James Tarry, Local Authority Governor
In 2011 I became a 'Dad' - and now life is even busier!
I enjoy helping the local community - which brings many challenges, with ever increasing financial restraints and red tape.
School staff are under immense pressure and I believe that common sense plays a very important role in education.

Norma Ajdukiewicz, Co-opted Governor
My interests are in gardening, local history, music, art. I became a Governor as I have been interested in education since working in School Health in Bristol and was a PTA member when my 4 daughters were at primary school. I believe that young children should attend a local school whenever possible and so wanted to support ours in Burston and Tivetshall. My Big idea is to make both schools centres of excellence so that numbers increase and their future is assured.
