Governor Pen Portraits

 

--------------------------------------------------- 

Revd Julie Wing

I have been the Rector for the Parish of Usworth for two years and have been an ordained priest for ten years serving in Sunderland then Newton Aycliffe then here in Washington covering High Usworth and Sulgrave and I have two grown up daughters.

Before entering the priest hood I worked for the Education Social Work service in Stockton dealing with attendance issues and also ensuring children from families seeking asylum were placed into school. When my children were at school I was an active member of the governing body of their school and took up a voluntary position working to support parents of children undergoing special education assessment.

Why did I want to become a Governor?

I have always had a keen interest in the education of young people and see education as a vital part of children’s growth not only through the academic schooling but also for ensuring children become well rounded individuals through extra curricula activities and a rich variety of teaching methods.

What is my role at Marlborough Primary School?

I am currently the governor with responsibility for Anti-bullying, SEND, RE and Place2be. I thoroughly enjoy my time working in school and encouraging the children to take an active interest in the needs of the wider community through the schools links to the Washington Food Project of which a distribution point is based at St Michael and All Angels Church, Sulgrave, and during school holidays ensuring that there are always free activities at church for families to be involved in from making crafts to community activities.

I am Wendy Buddle and I am one of the Staff Governors at Marlborough Primary School.   I am employed full time at Marlborough Primary School as  the Deputy Head Teachers, SENCO and Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead.  

What is my role at Marlborough Primary School?

Since becoming a Governor in 2011, I have developed within this role and highly value this role, as I have a clear understanding of the school which enables me to contribute positively to the development of our school.
