Anthony Banbury :
Maths and SEN
I was born in Plymouth and have lived here all of my life, so far. I am a Local Authority Governor and was appointed to serve on Pomphlett School’s Governing Body in 2011. I have been governor for over 12 years. I was a governor (chair for 4 years) of Plymouth Hospital and Outreach School before it closed in 2011. My career has been in Education. I was a teacher, deputy-headteacher and headteacher in schools in and around Plymouth for almost 40 years. I took early retirement from Headship in 1997. I immediately returned to teaching on a supply and short contract basis in schools in and around Plymouth – finally teaching in a school in Saltash. I retired from teaching in August 2008. Being a governor of a school is a huge privilege, as well as carrying much responsibility. I will serve the children of Pomphlett School to the best of my ability – as they deserve to be served. They are our future.
Laura Biggs Parent Governor : Early Years Foundation Stage / Art / Music / PSHE & Citizenship
I have three children; my oldest son (Louis) is in foundation at Pomphlett. I became a parent governor in September 2010. I work at the University of Plymouth as a science technician in the cell and microbiology laboratories. As the mother of three children under five, I will have at least one child at Pomphlett School for the next 11 years! It is for this reason I wished to make the commitment to become a parent governor. I believe that Pomphlett primary is an excellent school and I hope that I can support the staff, pupils and governors in ensuring that this continues.
