About our Governors
I'm extremely proud to work for Monteney Primary. Having started my career here and developed as a teacher here, I am really proud to be part of the Monteney team and community. I have a passion for sport and activity in school and love seeing children taking risks, achieving their goals and celebrating their successes. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I'm a member of Shiregreen Community Centre and take a role in the organising of events alongside running the weekly youth group. I also really enjoy participating in and watching sports in particular Sheffield Wednesday.
I am incredibly proud to be the Principal here at Monteney and a member of the Monteney Governing Body. I have worked at Monteney since September 2003 and have been the Principal since September 2013 and as a result feel extremely committed to the school and community. When I'm not at school, I love spending time with my family, particularly being a "Soccer Mum" , watching both my children, Harry and Meredith, play football. I also enjoy taking our dog, Floss, for walks. I try to keep fit by playing netball twice a week too.

Rebecca is Director of the DME Trust and Senior Education Consultant at Potential Plus UK, both national education charities, where she oversees strategic planning, development and various services. Her background is in education research and governance. She is also a trustee of the Dimensions Trust and was previously Chair of Governors of a large secondary school.
I am a new member of the governing body and as a parent Governor, I am linked to the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage). Until recently I worked in early years and have experience of working with children from three months to sixteen years, but mainly with under-fives. In my spare time, I used to play ten-pin bowling, I played in leagues from been about eleven. I also played for Yorkshire several times. I now spend my spare time looking after my little boy Jacob and going out on lots of different adventures with him. I am looking forward to getting to know the school more this year and enjoying my first year as a parent governor.
I am a member of the Monteney Governing Body as Chairperson and Parent Governor. As part of the Governors I serve as a link between the Governing Body and SEND, Safeguarding, Disadvantaged Outcomes for Vulnerable Learners and Computing CLT . I have worked at Longley Park Sixth Form College for 5 years where I teach ICT and Business. Prior to this, a secondary school for 8 years. I teach many different levels of students, supporting them to ensure that they reach their full potential ready to move onto University. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, watching films and spending time with my family and friends. Being part of the Governing body for so long is my way of giving back something to the school that will have taught all 3 of my children, making them into the amazing learners that they all are.
Any correspondence for the governing body should be sent directly to the school for the attention of The Chair of Governors, Sarah Turton
