Welcome from the Chair

I am writing to introduce myself as the Chair of Governors at Anston Greenlands Primary School. My name is Jane Walker and I have been part of the governing body since 2013. I initially became the Foundation Stage Link Governor as part of my role on the Governing Body.  I became Chair of Governors in 2017.

My previous background included working for the majority of my career within the National Health Service as a Physiologist within the Cardiology and Respiratory Departments in Sheffield and Rotherham. In addition I spent time working within the Youth Service and also with adults with special needs for 5 years.

I have a special affinity with Anston Greenlands School as both my children attended the school and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. My son is a Headteacher and my daughter was a Retail Buyer and is now also a teacher! Obviously the school had a positive effect on their future.

Anston Greenlands is a wonderful school full of happy and well motivated children who love to learn, supported and guided by our Headteacher and our excellent staff. Creativity is also at the heart of the Anston Greenlands experience.  The academy trust that they were instrumental in setting up is now called the “Creative Children’s Academy Trust”. The trust incorporates three schools which all have the same ideals, values and ethos.

I think that an important thing to note is that as Governors we are a collection of different individuals with different experiences who all work as a team. We are united by our commitment to our school and to the academy trust’s long term success.

Should you wish to contact me at any time please feel free to do so; this can be done via the school.

Kind Regards

Jane Walker

Chair of Governors
