Damon Lacey

Pecuniary interests: None

Type of Governor: LEA

Governor role: Chair of Governors

Committees: General Purpose

Further Information:

I moved to the area towards the end of 2021 having spent the past decade living and working in London. It has always been important to me to be a part of the local community and to give some my time and energy to it. I became a School Governor in London, eventually becoming Chair of a primary school and was eager to continue that here.

In the day job, I am a project manager/management consultant and spend my time working with clients on their governance, operations and strategy so I hope that I have a lot of experience that I can bring to the school to help push forward its vision and strategy.

Further Information:

As a former pupil myself, with one child who has progressed through the school and another hopefully starting in 2021, the continuation of the school's excellent reputation and development of the curriculum it offers is important to me.

My aim is to actively contribute to the governing body in planning and delivering the best strategic plan for the school, so that all children can benefit from the very best education Shakespeare Infant School has to offer

Committees: General Purpose (Vice-Chair), Head Teacher's Performance Management Panel

Further Information:

Three of my five grandchildren were pupils at the school and I was very impressed by the atmosphere and dedication to the progression of the children. As a volunteer schools outreach officer for the RSPB I was invited in to give presentations on birds and wildlife to the children over the last 10 years. This led to my involvement in the development of the woods as an outdoor learning area. 

I have now been invited to be a Governor focusing on Outdoor Learning and Development and look forward to taking an active part in the school management and governance.

Gemma Williams

Pecuniary interests: None

Type of Governor: Parent

Governor role: Training Link Governor, SEND

Committees: Standards

Further Information:  

I am very excited about becoming a Parent Governor, as having had a child recently progress through the school and another just starting in Year R, I really wanted to become part of the team, that brings this school together in such a strong and successful way. I have interests in the curriculum and support for children, staff and parents. 

My background is in Operational/Finance roles within the Sports and Radio Media industries. 

My current job role, is as a Financial Assistant within a local Secondary School and I have worked in Secondary Education for 7 years now. I use Financial systems that Shakespeare Infants also use as well as looking after finances for trips and school events. I feel these skills help benefit my role as a Parent Governor as I understand how these systems work as both a parent and as a member of staff.
