Area of special interest: Finance and Leadership

Appointed by: Ings LGB

Business Interests: None

My experience working within the Employment, Education and Training Industry spans almost 30 years.  During this time I managed a private Training Company, managed numerous large community funded projects, some with budgets in excess of £4 million and more recently I formed and run a local not for profit company, tackling the barriers within the sector. The multiple roles held over this time have given me a vast knowledge of the sector and the needs the young people of our community have.

My role as a Managing Director and that of Chair of Governors collectively encourage and drive my passion for the local community and the skill levels and employability of the people of Hull.

Role: Co-opted Governor

Term of Office: 01/12/16 - 01/12/20

Area of special interest: ICT, LAC

Appointed by: Ings LGB

Business Interests: None

I am currently a self-employed foster carer for the Local Authority looking after vulnerable children and young people age 0-18. I have 1 child in placement with Special Educational Needs. I have done this for the past 4 years and find it very rewarding. More recently, after gaining experience through fostering, I secured a Teaching Assistant post at Ganton Secondary School. I have also previously worked in IT management and Data Analysis for over 10 years. All of this experience has provided me with invaluable skills to suit being a Governor.  I was introduced to Ings Primary School many years ago when my own children attended the school. As well as living in the area for over 20 years and having foster children that have also attended the school I have forged a long-term relationship with the ethos and values of the school. Now Ings Primary is evolving I am excited about the future of the new Multi Academy Trust I will continue to be committed to all pupils to achieve their full potential.  I am a keen musician and enjoy playing and recording music in my studio when I have time!

Area of special interest: SEN , Mentoring

Appointed by: Ings LGB

Business Interests: None

I have over 25 years experience as a primary teacher, the majority of that time was spent working at Ings Primary, so I am delighted to be able to continue my association with the school and support it in any way I can as a member of the Governing body.  I have also worked as a Youth worker and a moderator for the local authority and have mentored several newly qualified teachers. I have a particular interest in special educational needs, having previously worked as the school’s SENDCO.  I welcome the opportunity to make a positive contribution to the school in its future development.  I live locally and enjoy travelling, walking and the theatre plus spending time with my two young grandsons.

Role: Co-opted Governor

Term of Office: 01/12/16 - 01/12/20

Area of special interest: The voice of the young people

Appointed by: Ings LGB

Business Interests: None

I became a governor to represent the parents/pupils views within Ings’ school in the first instance. However the position has enhanced my understanding of education and local authority legislation. I now feel a valued member of the Ings governor’s team. This role had led to participating in the decision process from a cooperative school to an academy.  I currently work full time within Children’s and Adult services as the Senior Personal Advisor to young people leaving the care system post 18, the position encounters supporting individuals on multiple issues: housing, education, health, family and asylum.

Appointed by: Ings LGB

Business Interests: None

I have recently joined the Governing Body as I live in the community and work at another school in the YHCLT. I hope that I can challenge and support Ings Primary School by using my 23 years’ experience, skills and knowledge (the majority as a Senior Leader) in schools as well as my experience gained prior to teaching working in residential care for young people. I am a parent of two boys and what spare time I have is spent trying to gain a level of fitness, at the cinema and supporting Hull City.

Ms Lesley Maitra

Role: Staff Governor

Term of Office: 17/01/17 - 17/01/21

Area of special interest: Early Years

Appointed by: Ings LGB

Business Interests: None

After graduating in 1989 I worked in a business environment , setting up and running a successful  business in the field of safety products and protective clothing.  In 2005 I gained a PGCE with Early Years specialism from Hull University and followed my dream of a career change into teaching. My firm belief that the Early Years (0-5) are the most crucial in a child’s life, has inspired me to develop my role within the EYFS for over decade at Ings and to endeavour to carry out its guiding principles: a focus on the Unique Child and the importance of both Positive Relationships and Enabling Environments in Learning and Development.  I hope that my varied experience and skillset will prove to be a valuable asset in terms of my contribution to governorship at Ings.
