Mr Wayne Anderson​

Role: Chair of Governors - Co-opted

Business Interests: Governor at Winifred Holtby

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.

Mrs Margaret Maxwell​

Role: Vice Chair - Co-opted Governor
Business I
nterests: None

I have been married for 47 years and have two grownup children and three grandchildren. I worked as a crèche supervisor for 14 years employed by Hull City Council. I have also worked on a voluntary basis for Barnardos and spent hours every week in my childrens school Spring Cottage listening to children read.
I believe that education is very important as it allows children to fulfill their potential and this enables them to live full and happy lives.
My voluntary and work life has given me an understanding of the importance of nurturing children so that they achieve their potential.

I have worked and lived in Sutton most of my working life. I am married with four children. I have worked most of my life, until recently, as a teacher, reaching the positions of Deputy and Assistant Head Teacher roles. I have also held the position of a teacher governor at two local schools.

I am a former PE teacher, and a keen lover of all types of sport from tennis, racketball, table tennis, walking and biking. I have recently biked the Scottish coast to coast.

I currently work for HASS in a limited capacity and I am a volunteer for Hull City of Culture, now HEY volunteering.

I hope my educational and sporting background will provide a form of experience and assistance in the growth of the children’s education at Ings Primary.

I have worked at Ings for over 10 years and I have seen many changes within the school including the curriculum and joining the Academy Trust. I currently lead the EYFS team and I am dedicated and commited to giving our children at Ings the best possible start in life. As a governor, I am able to give a true account of what goes on in school and give real life examples if and when needed.

I am an Associate Solicitor with over 15 years' experience in Civil Litigation. I Specialise in Personal Injury and Medical negligence. I was born and educated in Hull.

I attended secondary school and college in Beverley, and then studied Law at The University of Hull where I achieved a LAW LLB (hons) degree.
