Local Governing Body

Welcome to our Governors’ section


The role of the Local Governing Body is to provide focused governance for the school at a local level. We monitor the school’s key performance indicators and act as a critical friend to the Head Teacher, providing challenge where appropriate. We also play a part in representing the views of all the school stakeholders: children, staff and parents; as well as offering assistance to the Academy Trustees in the fulfillment of their duties.  


Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.


Local Governing Body

Mr Ian Smith – Parent Governor (Chair)

As the current Chair of Governors I support the school leadership in delivering excellence in education and experience for the children. My daughter attends Kemble Primary School and we live in Siddington, so I am delighted to be a parent governor for both schools. I worked in the finance sector for 30 years.


Mr Martin Kingston - Co-opted Governor

I am delighted to be part of the Kemble School Community. I have lived in Kemble for ten years and am a retired town and country planning lawyer. I see the school and the life associated with it as a vital part of our community. I am keen to see the school, its pupils and all those who work in it prospering as part of an inclusive and caring body.


Miss Rosie Hancox - Staff Governor

I am delighted to be able to play a part in working with and supporting such a thriving school community. 


Mrs Rachael Garrett - Governor

I am delighted to have joined the Kemble local governing body as a parent governor, and utilise my extensive professional experience obtained from over 20 years in the energy industry to support and work with Kemble Primary School to achieve educational excellence and an inclusive, high attainment environment and supportive caring community for the children and families.
