Mrs Anne Hudspith

Vice Chair of the Governing Board

Appointed by the Diocese on 20/09/2016.

 

I have enjoyed a teaching career that began in 1977 and has spanned thirty nine years in Catholic Education. I have taught in schools in Bognor Regis, Chichester, and Haywards Heath, and have been the head teacher of St Robert Southwell Catholic Primary School in Horsham for over fifteen years. During this time I also worked as an Executive head teacher of two other Catholic primary schools and as a Section 48 Religious Education inspector.

I chose teaching because I believe that it is a vocation and one of the most important professions. Teaching is about making the world a better place by helping pupils to achieve their potential and, in the case of Catholic Education, helping them to know the person of Jesus Christ.

I have also been blessed with four beautiful children and a gorgeous granddaughter. After retiring from headship in the summer of 2016 I was delighted to be asked to apply for a governor’s role at St Wilfrid’s and I am now thoroughly enjoying supporting such a delightful school and a very dedicated staff.

Mr Richard McGuire

Foundation Governor

Appointed by the Diocese on 15/02/2016.

 

I had wanted to do more within the local community and when asked to become a Governor I was provided with the opportunity to use my talents for the greater good for the children at St. Wilfrid's. My role as a Knight of St. Columba means I support the school with charity work and help the children live out the Gospel values. I attend as many school events as possible and work with the leadership team strategically to strengthen relationships between school and home.

My hobbies include gardening and restoring classic and vintage cars. I have helped developed the school community by tending the gardens, maintaining the school bees and sourcing free resources for the school environment to make it an outstanding place to be!

Mr Paul Barley

Foundation Governor

Appointed by the Diocese on 19/05/2017.

 

I am a Foundation governor and was appointed in May 2017. I have lived in Angmering for over ten years and have been involved with St Wilfrid’s for some years as my eldest son Christopher was a pupil here from 2010 to 2017. He loved his time at the school and by accepting a position on the Governing Body I wanted to be able to give something back, using my experience in financial management and governance, and thus helping the school achieve its aspirations. I am Chairman of the Finance and Staffing Committee, which deals with the school’s finances and personnel matters, up to and including the Headteacher’s annual appraisal.

Appointed by the Local Authority on 12/02/2015.

 

I am a local authority governor, my son attends St. Wilfrid’s.  I've lived in Angmering since 2009,

I became a governor because of an interest in the school initially as a parent and because I can offer the school skills I have in my own job working with Arun District Council. I have developed a good understanding of the school's finances and work with the leadership team to make sure finances impact on the outcomes of the children.

I am a first time parent at St. Wilfrids this year. My son, Ewan, is in Selsey class and since he has started I have been amazed at just how personable everyone is. I wanted to be one a parent governor so I could put my skills to use at school. I have been a photographer for a few years and I have to quickly develop a rapport with young children and parents a like. I'd love to be able to help anywhere I can within the school. I've also worked in retail for over 10 years where I've had to use many social skills.

Miss Natalie Carless

Staff Governor

Appointed by the School Staff on 02/10/2017.

 

Having worked at St Wilfrid’s for the last 3 years, I feel I have the knowledge, understanding and skills to take on the role of staff governor. I understand the importance of a strong governing body in the development of a school (having worked as a Clerk in the past) and also believe that strong links should be maintained between the governing body and the staff who work day-to-day at St Wilfrid’s. As a passionate supporter of Catholic education, and as a practising Catholic myself, I am keen to support the school further on its journey to being a good and ultimately outstanding school.
