Our Governors

LOVE ONE ANOTHER. AS I HAVE LOVED YOU. (JOHN 13:34)

Governor Bios

Margaret Lunnon (Joint Head Teacher) 

I have been in post for 18 years during which time I have been a Consultant Headteacher for the Local Authority working in a wide range of schools and I have piloted dual headship with another local Church of England Primary School. I have been involved with the Diocese of Coventry leading on the Professional Leadership Course linked with Liverpool Hope University. This involved working with newly appointed Headteachers and Leaders from across the country. I am currently developing a succession plan for the school preparing the new leaders of the future, something that I am extremely passionate about. 

Our school is a very good school with outstanding practice and I am proud to be part of the team that has achieved this. I was delighted at the judgment of Outstanding in our SIAS inspection because I believe that it is crucial that we all know what it means to be in a Church of England Primary School. The children are the heart of the school and it is their leadership that inspires me. The children in school feel safe and learn about the values and morals that enable them to achieve academically, socially, morally, spiritually and culturally. 

Lucy Jackson (Joint Head Teacher)

Background

I have been part of the Hampton Lucy family since 2003. I joined the school as the year three and year four teacher, after 5 years teaching in Worcestershire. I have since had the opportunity to teach throughout the school in every class. This valuable experience has given me the understanding of the development of the whole child from building the foundations in Nursery and Reception to preparing our year six children for the next stage of their life.   

Personal Comments

I have always wanted to be part of leadership, with my main goal to become a Headteacher. The support and guidance I have received in my time at Hampton Lucy has seen my role develop from KS lead, to Assistant Headteacher and now joint Headteacher. As a school leader, I wish to secure the school for the future, building on our excellent practise and Christian values and ethos. 

Neil Thomas (Chair and Finance Governor)

Background 

I have worked in the Commercial Vehicle sector for more than 35 years. I have a Daughter at Hampton Lucy School. I have been a parent Governor since December 2016 and I was recently reselected as a Co-opted Governor and voted in as the new Chair for a term of four years (September 2020). I have helped the School develop its presence on Facebook, and taken a lead role with budgets and finance since November 2019. 

Personal Comments 

As a parent, I’m proud to be a Governor at such a great school. My aim to help our school achieve great Ofsted & Siam results and to also give something back to society through the School.

Personal Comments

Hampton Lucy CofE Primary School and Nursery excels at creating an environment where children are valued and are able to develop their own self-esteem and confidence. I applied to become a governor because l want to support the school in their efforts to raise expectations, and help our children to achieve their potential (whatever this may be) both academically and creatively.

Sue Lampitt (Church Foundation Governor) 

Background

Sue has a longstanding association with the school. Now retired, Sue enjoyed a career as a local secondary school teacher combined with farming. Sue is a member of the Performance & Standards Committee. 

Personal Comments 

Hampton Lucy CofE Primary School and Nursery is a very special place for me. Three generations of my family have attended this school and I have volunteered here on and off for forty years. I have a particular interest in Early Years and Primary education because these are the foundation of all that follows. Love of learning developed in the early years will last a lifetime.

Anne Richardson (Church Foundation Governor)

Background

Anne taught National Curriculum music for over 40 years, initially in the secondary sector and subsequently in over 30 primaries for the Warwickshire County Music Service, eventually specialising in Early Years and Nursery music. She was heavily involved in helping schools and Early Years settings improve their music provision, and ran workshops, courses and training for teachers.

Anne retired in March 2020 at first lockdown, having taught at Hampton Lucy for 31 years. Anne has helped to plan and deliver the monthly Family Service at St Peter’s Hampton Lucy, working with children in school to prepare activities, readings, prayers and displays, and hopes this will continue when circumstances allow.

Personal comments

Having started teaching at Hampton Lucy I knew that it would be the right place for my children. I saw a school where all children were valued and nurtured, and I am delighted that this is still the case. As a Foundation Governor I look forward to fostering and developing the strong links between school, church and community.

I research family history, practise tai chi and under normal circumstances sing in at least 3 choirs. In retirement I hope to travel regularly, visiting areas in the UK where my ancestors lived and undertaking further research in record offices and archives.

Angela Clarke (Co-opted Governor)

Background 

I have worked for Wolseley for over 20 years in a variety of roles, latterly with responsibility for the profitability of the daily business transactions where I managed a team which ensured the end-to-end processes that delivered this. 

Personal Comments

I became governor because I want to ensure continuity of my daughter’s primary school education at Hampton Lucy. 

I have a keen eye for detail and will use my knowledge and expertise to support all other stakeholders involved in the delivery of a quality education at Hampton Lucy Primary School and Nursery.
