Meet the Governors

 Ms Sharon Deackes - Chair of Governors (Foundation Governor)

About Me:

I became a Foundation Governor at Richard Hill in November 2017 and am really looking forward to the next 4 years of office.

 

I have a grandson in Year 5 and a grandson and granddaughter in Year 2; I have always enjoyed my visits to the school as their Nanny and welcome the chance to be on the governing body of such a lovely school.

I retired in August 2016 after teaching in Primary Schools in Leicestershire for 38 years; a career I loved. During that time I taught in five very different schools; I was headteacher of a village school for 4 years and a town school for 8 years. I have always believed that children should be given as many opportunities as possible in order to fulfil their potential. Primary school should be the place where strong foundations are laid and memories are made. I hope, with my experience, I can make a valuable contribution to the education of the children at Richard Hill now and in the future.

 

Rev David McDonough- Vice Chair of Governors (Ex-officio, Foundation)

                                                       

 
Hi, I’m David I’ve been a governor at Richard Hill since 2011 when I came to Thurcaston and Cropston as Rector.
I had been previously a Governor in Staffordshire for 12 years at a Community Junior school and a Secondary school there.
Like most governors I am acutely aware of my inability to give the time and have the expertise necessary for the role I have to fulfil but I do want to be the best I can be for our school and particularly for all the individuals, children and adults, it represents.
I have a grown up family that are spread around the country. I have been doing this job as a ‘Minister of religion’ for the last 28 years and before training spent 15 years in industry as a mechanical engineer making British army tanks in Leeds where I grew up and went to school, I am a proud Yorkshireman.

Mrs Chris Spreadbury (Foundation Governor)

About me:

Mrs Spreadbury has been a governor for a long time and has a long-standing commitment to Richard Hill Primary School. 

 

Mrs Linda Bennett (Foundation Governor)

About Me:

In 2013 I was asked to become a Foundation Governor as I had been involved with the school in a volunteering role since my son started at Richard Hill in 2007. I am a committed Christian regularly worshipping at Trinity Methodist Church in Loughborough though I live in Thurcaston. I studied pharmacy at University and worked full time as a community pharmacist for nearly 20 years . When my son was born I decided not to return to pharmacy and now work part time in my husband’s retail business as well as continuing to volunteer at Richard Hill, running the gardening club and helping out in a class one morning a week, as well as being a Governor. I was initially told that being a Governor would only be a couple of meetings a term! At times this has become more like a couple a week!! However, I do enjoy being involved in such a lovely school and helping to support the children, staff and parents through my role here.
