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 I 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.


Mrs M England - Parent Governor (Vice-Chair)

I moved to Siddington in 2016, joined the governing body in 2017 and am delighted to now be Vice-Chair. Being on the Local Governing Body has given me an opportunity to play a part in my local community and to use my Engineering and Research skills to benefit others. I am also part of the Asset Management Working Party.


Reverend J McKenzie – Foundation Governor (During Term of Office)

Chair of the Ethos Committee.


Reverend C Trykush - Foundation Governor

I have been very happy to be a Foundation Governor for just over a year, and as such I seek to help Siddington School maintain its Christian distinctiveness as a C of E School; as well supporting both Siddington and Kemble Schools as they strive to provide the very best for their pupils. I am a mum of two children at Siddington School, and am a Baptist Minister currently working as a Family Outreach Worker for Churchdown Methodist Church. 


Mrs Melanie Anderson - Co-opted Governor 


Ms Claire Ladwa - Co-opted Governor

I moved to Siddington during lockdown in 2020. After previously being a school governor with another primary school I was keen to continue in this type of role to help drive quality education. I was delighted to be accepted to join the governing team for Kemble & Siddington schools. I live with my partner and between us we have three children. I work within Human Resources for an Insurance Company in London
