The role of the Governors is extremely important and can be very rewarding. It offers an insight into the way the school is organised and managed. Members of the community can offer a wide range of expertise, advice and support. The Full Governing Body meet each term and there are termly committee meetings. Mrs Rosemarie Fleming is the Chair of Governors and would welcome your support if you are interested in becoming a member.

My name is Rosemarie Fleming. I have had a long association with the school, from being secretary of the PTA when my children were in school to my grandchildren being in school now. I love helping with Rainbow Readers and other school activities. It is a pleasure to be part of such a happy environment.
I was co-opted as a Community Governor in June 2014. I am on three committees:- Standards, Finance and Salaries. I am the class link with Year 2. I also contribute to one of the Ofsted Focus Groups concentrating on The Effectiveness of Leadership and Management.
Hello! My name is Paula Gardner and I have been a co-opted governor at Ludlow Infant School for 2 years. I belong to the Health & Safety and Premises committee that meets termly. I am a link governor for foundation stage and also for Red and Orange Reception classes, a role I particularly enjoy as I work with younger children co-running a play group on the school site. I am lucky enough to spend time in both Red and Orange classes weekly, this enables me to see all the brilliant work that is done in the school to educate our children and give them the best possible start in life.
My name is Ben Whitmarsh. I have been a Parent-Governor since January 2013. I have three children; Bea in year 2, Evie in Reception and Edward will hopefully be joining the Nursery next year. I went to University College London and did a degree in Ancient World Studies, then stayed there and worked in London, in charge of Health, Safety and Quality at a large state of the art warehouse. Since returning to Ludlow I have worked for myself running a small property maintenance company and I now work for a small local company near Tenbury.
My name is Helen Baillie. I was co-opted as a parent governor in 2014 and have two children at the school. I am a primary school teacher myself and served as a teacher governor for five years at my previous school. I am the link governor for nursery and feel extremely privileged to witness the happy and friendly atmosphere when visiting the department. I am also on the Curriculum and Standards committee helping the school to evolve, yet at the same time maintain the high standards that we have set for ourselves.
My name is Janet Thomas, I have been a Parent Governor for just 3 years. I have three children at the school, Grace, Emily and Alice. I am currently Link Governor for the Year One Classes and for Child Protection, I have an interest in this area because of being a Children's Nurse for over 30 years. I also hold a teaching qualification and worked at the college in Health and Social Care undertaking both teaching and assessing, prior to having the children. I became a governor because I wanted to increase my understanding of Primary Education, but also I wanted to be involved with the Nursery/School my daughters attend. I enjoy going in to School and helping with Bear Words, Forest Schools, Rainbow Readers and other school activities.
My name is Sue Fairbrace. I started working at the school in 2000 as class teacher and leader of English and ICT. I later became SENCO. In July 2015 I retired from class teaching but retained my role as SENCO. I am on the Standards committee and lead the Ofsted focus group for Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare. My interests include walking in the Shropshire Hills, gardening and singing with Ludlow Larks.
Hello! I'm Paul Kemp and I am Deputy Mayor of Ludlow.
I have been involved with the school since 2006 when my daughter started. As an active and enthusiastic fund raiser for the school I was elected onto the Governing body in 2012.
I am on the Standards, Finance and Salaries committees and have been involved in the interviewing process for the deputy head, as I have attended the safer recruitment training.
As I have a background of working with people with individual needs I have supported children with behaviour issues at the school. Although this can be challenging, I have found it both enjoyable and rewarding.
