I am a father of two children, including a son in year 6 and a daughter who left Bovey Tracey Primary School in 2018 having been at the school since reception. We live in Bovey Tracey and I work for the Dartmoor National Park Authority where I am responsible for ICT Services and also managing the Authority’s premises including offices and visitor centres. My lead responsibility on the Governing Board is for Premises, Security and Health & Safety which are all areas I am very familiar with through my day job. Prior to working for the National Park Authority I worked in adult education and at a number of secondary schools in Devon. In my spare time I enjoy road cycling and walking on Dartmoor. Both of my children have thrived at Bovey Tracey Primary School and I am delighted to be able to support the staff and wider school community and give something back in any way I can.
I am a father of two living in Chudleigh Knighton and my eldest started in reception in September 2021. I am a quality engineer with over 7 years' experience in the aerospace industry. As a quality engineer my focus is on compliance to all stakeholder and regulatory requirements, identifying risk and implementing mitigation strategies, and continuous improvement. I hope these skills will benefit the school and help with continuously improving the school for our children. I am keen on outdoor pursuits, especially sailing and cycling and care strongly for the environment. You may see my wife or I cycling to drop off/collect our daughter from school (almost in any weather).
If you see me please feel free to ask me questions.
Hola, bonjour, buongiorno, pryveet, konnichiwa, guten tag, nin hao, hello....
I'm Tom with 2 children at Bovey Tracey Primary School. I trained as a language teacher at Exeter University in 2009 and have since worked in Devon as a class teacher, Head of Department and Director of Learning.
The government's White Paper, 'Opportunity for All - strong schools with great teachers for your child', is something to which I am personally committed, as demonstrated throughout my career in education. A solid foundation is crucial to all successful learning, and I believe as a Parent Governor, I am able to help the school achieve this aspiration.
I have 2 children at Bovey Tracey school and I am reassured to know that they attend a school with an inclusive, compassionate and aspirational ethos.
I have over 20 years’ experience of working in large organisations in the private sector and have delivered various roles including audit, commercial management and procurement.
I have travelled and lived all over the country as part of my career in the past but I am so happy to have settled in Bovey and love living here. It’s a joy to be so close to the moor and the sea and in my spare time I love to walk, cycle and swim in our surroundings
I am a parent governor. I live in Bovey Tracey with my husband and our two daughters. Our oldest daughter started at Bovey Tracey Primary School in September 2020. We are excited to begin our journey as part of a school community which offers so many opportunities for their pupils. I feel privileged to be able to contribute to the future development of the school and uphold its vision and values.
I have eleven years' experience working in primary schools and currently hold the position of Early Years Leader of a preschool and reception class in the South Hams. At the weekends I enjoy swimming, walking and sewing projects as well as exploring Dartmoor and the seaside with my family.
Our family lives in Bovey Tracey, with our daughter in Indio and our son in nursery. It has been a pleasure for us to watch our daughter thrive since she joined Bovey Tracey, and it reassures us that her brother will love it here when the time comes. To this end, it is a privilege to be able to give back to the School community. I am currently a Research Fellow at the University of Exeter, based on their Penryn Campus. My research centres around a critical perspective to our society and economy, ensuring that all voices and experiences are heard and understood. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, getting out and exploring with the family, as well as talking all things football.
