Current Governors

Jon Pace
Chair of Governors 
LEA Governor
Leadership and Management (Chair) 
Governor since: 01/12/2015
Registered Interests: None

 

I am currently Chair of Governors at Moss Bury, a position I have held since September 2016, after originally becoming a governor of the school in January of that year.  I currently sit on both the Leadership and Management and Behaviour and Safety committees and have a daughter that attends the school.

Professionally, I am an Accountant with over 20 years of practice and industry experience,  dealing with all aspects of accountancy from personal and corporate taxation to compliance, with a wide ranging portfolio of small to medium business including Doctors surgeries,  telecommunication and gaming, as well as clients involved in Motorsport.  My current role is within the construction industry.

Away from this I enjoy Football, Cricket and Golf, and have found a passion for cycling having completed Ride London 100 in 2016 and will do again in 2018.  I also assist in helping to run a local girls football side.

Vicky Hoyte 
Clerk to the Governing Body
Registered Interests: None

 I have very recently become the clerk for the governing body at  Moss Bury. My day job for the past ten years has been in the music  industry, so education is a completely new learning curve for me.  However, with a child just starting his journey in schooling I was  interested in learning more about how schools work and the role  of the governing body.

 I am very happy to be a part of the team at Moss Bury with the  dedicated teaching staff and governors who do a wonderful job.

 

Callum Newbury
Co-opted Governor
Achievement and Teaching
Governor since: 25/09/2014

Registered Interests: None

 I have worked at Moss Bury for nearly seven years now. It was my  first position within a school and upon arriving I was blown away  by the positive atmosphere amongst the staff, parents and  children. I currently teach a year six class and have been assistant  head teacher since 2014. I am passionate about providing  opportunities for pupils to excel academically in a safe and  enjoyable environment. I am delighted to be a governor at Moss  Bury School.

 I feel that I can give good insight into the day-to-day life and also  enjoy being involved in shaping the future of Moss Bury, a  community that I am proud to be a part of.

Joe Henley
Staff Member
Achievement and Teaching

Governor since: 02/04/2015

Registered Interests: None

 I have been teaching at Moss Bury for 5 years now and, in 2015,  took the decision to become a staff governor in order to be part of  the team that helps make the school the best it can possibly be. In  my view, Moss Bury has such a wonderful community of children,  staff and parents of which we should all be extremely proud. Day-  to-day, I currently teach year 6 and, while it may be turning a few  of my hairs grey, I really enjoy working with our children.  Fundamentally, I became a governor so that I could help improve  links between the governing body and our amazing staff, all with  the overall aim of improving the experience that children have at  Moss Bury.

 I currently sit on the Achievement and Teaching Committee and  strive to do everything I can to lead our school in the direction it  deserves. 

Gareth Linwood
Staff Member (Head Teacher)

Registered Interests: None

 I am originally from North London and after qualifying from Oxford  University started my teaching career in Enfield. This is my third  headship having been leading schools since 2003 and I have had  the privilege of leading Moss Bury primary School and Nursery  since September 2010.

 Building the team at our school and leading us from bottom 15%  nationally to the top 2% has been one of my proudest  achievements in education. The team of Governors which  supported this improvement have moved on and we are now  developing a new Governing Body to help us push towards an  ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted grading.  

Rachel Buttress 
Co-opted Governor
Behaviour and Safety (Chair)

Governor since: 02/04/2014
Registered Interests: None

 I am a Staff Governor here at Moss Bury; I started as a Parent  Governor in 2013 and moved to Staff status in Sept 2015 when I  took on the role of Family Liaison Worker. Within the Governing  Body I am Chair of the Behaviour & Safety Committee. 

 I am highly motivated in helping others to achieve and succeed, I  am able to fulfill this through my role here and I thoroughly enjoy  it. I have studied throughout the last 4 years and gained  qualifications relevant to education, in addition I am a trainee  Counsellor close to qualifying.  Previous to this I worked in the  insurance industry where I gained a sound knowledge of business.

 I am keen to support Moss Bury in its vision and contribute to  improve upon its already good status. I am extremely impressed  by the high teaching standard which reflects in academic  achievements, that the children here are happy have a love of  learning and enjoy coming to school. I am proud to be a part of a  successful and driven team. I hope to reach out and build upon  community links and enhance the overall successes throughout  the school.
