Meet the Governors

Donna Young
I have lived in Crowle since 2001 and have 2 children who both attended this school from nursery to Year 6. They are now at Axholme Academy and John Leggott College. How time flies!

I have a background in nursing and became a governor in 2011 as I wanted to find out more about the education of my children and how schools worked. I didn’t think I would still be a governor all these years later.

I have found it extremely interesting and challenging at times, but the time spent in school with the children has been the most enjoyable.

Donna Rowbottom
I’ve been a governor at Crowle primary for 3 ½ years. I moved to Crowle in 2005 and grew up in a village near Leicester. 

I am a qualified nursery nurse (NNEB) and have been qualified for 27 years. I have worked in day nurseries and have 19 years’ experience of working in the community with Surestart, Children’s centres and health visiting. I am currently a community nursery nurse with the health visiting team on the Isle. 

In my spare time I enjoy swimming, meals out, spending time with friends, shopping and days out with my daughter who is currently in year 6. 

The best part about being a governor is spending time in school with the children who are always happy to talk to us!

I hope as a governor I can continue to play a part in preparing our children for an exciting future and getting the best opportunities for them to learn and succeed.

I have been a teacher at Crowle Primary Academy for 22 years. I started on supply after finishing my degree and have never left! My time at Crowle has seen me get married and have my own son, Lewis, who thoroughly enjoyed his time at our school (maybe because he never had me as his teacher!). 

I became a staff governor about 2 years ago as I felt I had a lot of experience to bring, not only teaching experience but also a good understanding of what makes our community tick, as I have lived here for nearly 20 years and I now call Crowle 'home'. 

The best part of being our staff governor is that I can be the voice of everyone who works in our school and be the link we need between the 'coal face' and the governing body.
