Meet our Governors
Here are our dedicated governors that make
St Werburgh’s Primary what it is today….
Chair of Governors
I have been a co-opted governor since Sept 2016 and I am a member of the Finance & Premises Committee. I believe strongly in the power of education to change lives and I draw on my experience gained in management roles in the public and charity sectors to help St Werburgh’s give children greater opportunities
Vice-Chair of Governors
I am a parent governor with two children on Silver Birch site. I became a governor when my eldest was still in Reception, in 2016, and became Chair of the Standards subcommittee in July 2017. I am currently a part-time bookkeeper and I have a degree in nutrition and dietetics.
I am really enjoying being part of the Governing body at St Werburgh’s and working with such a passionate and committed group of people, both governors and staff. I hope to help the school to continue to provide the best experiences for all our children and the community as a whole.
I have been the Headteacher at St Werburgh’s Primary School since February 2018. I have worked at the school for 10 years -previously in the role of Deputy Headteacher and Special Educational needs co-ordinator. I am passionate about providing a high quality and enriching educational experience for all of our children and very much enjoy being part of our fantastic school community.
Dayna Sierra John
I became a co-opted governor in October 2017 and a member of the Standards committee. I’m also a parent at the school. I taught Reception and Nursery for two years and now I’m an Early Years homecare provider, I also teach a weekly fitness class. I love working with people and engaging with our community. The school has a wonderful community of people and I look forward to being part of the journey that continues to see the school grow.
I became a parent governor in 2016, and my son currently attends St Werburghs on Willow Site. I sit on the Standards Committee, and take a particular interest in curriculum development, science and equalities. I work at the University of Bristol helping researchers to connect with the public about their research. I really value the approach to learning, child development and community at St Werburghs, and I am proud to do my part as a governor to support our excellent school.
I became an Associate Governor to the school this September 2018. I am currently the Acting Head teacher of the Nursery School. I have been part of the St Werburghs Nursery Team for almost 5 years now and am excited about our growing links with the Primary School. I feel both schools share the same vision and ethos which is important to the success of the children.
