Amanda Lomas-Farley

Initially joined St. John's as a voluntary helper in 2000 and was appointed to the Governing Body by the Local Authority in 2004. Following the terms of reference,  I have just applied to be reappointed and my new term of office begins in November 2016.

Over the years I have attended many courses to cover the roles I fulfil. My most recent courses were for Child Protection, November 2014 and Safer Recruitment, November 2014.

I have no business or pecuniary interests in the school and no relationship to any staff.

I attend six meetings of the Governing Body every year and many meetings of the Executive Body. I regularly visit the school to cover my areas of responsibility recorded  below and  have constant communication with the Head Teacher.

I am responsible for the monitoring of several important areas of school life: Pupil Premium, Child Protection and Special Educational Needs.

Lesley Clark

I was appointed as a Community governor by the Governing Body in September 2014.

I taught at St. John's for twenty years and have close links with many of the ancillary staff and parents. During that time I was nominated for a Lifetime Achievement Award in Teaching and received my certificate from Lord Putnam and Charles Clark who was then Secretary of State for Education.

I have attended three courses to help fulfil my role as governor. In 2014 I took a Governor Induction Course. I also went on a course for Foundation Governors as I wanted to understand the role of a Governor in a church school.

In 2015 I attended a course on Monitoring and Evaluating the Curriculum.


I work alongside Amanda in Head Teacher Performance Management and I am Chairperson on the Standards Committee.

I attend all meetings of the full Governing Body. I try to get into school as much as possible and visit the classrooms, talk to staff and children. I have helped a little in classrooms with year 6.

I have no business or pecuniary interests in the school.
