Our Governors

Foreward by the Chair of Governors

I am delighted to be able to introduce you to Lanesfield Primary School on behalf of the Governors.

We are rightly proud of our school. It has served the community for many years and has provided thousands of children with the very best start in their education.

There is a strong multi-cultural ethos running through all that we do and an emphasis upon the rounded development of each child.

Discipline is firm and fair and is always coupled with concern for the child. In this school you will find a dedicated staff team and a wonderful family atmosphere.

Who we are

Zoe Rollinson – Staff Governor

I am Head Teacher as well as Governor at Lanesfield.

I joined Lanesfield in 2011 as Deputy Head Teacher and became Head Teacher in 2015. Previous to working at Lanesfield I have worked across many schools, been a civil servant, ran my own business and when I first left school trained in fitness and beauty therapy. I have a wide range of working experience across different sectors.

As you can imagine during my career I have used many different skills and continued to learn as I went along. I bring these skills to our Governing Board along with a day-to-day knowledge of our school in action.

As Governors we have three key roles:

• Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.

• Holding the Head Teacher to account for the educational performance of pupils.
• Overseeing financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

My day-to-day world revolves around these three things. I feel it is imperative that as a Governing Board we have the same clarity of vision, ethos and direction to ensure all pupils have the opportunity to thrive and become secondary ready with a love of learning as well as a recognition of their own significance.

I feel proud to work at our school as both a member of the Governing Board and as Head Teacher. I will continue to strive hard to ensure just like our children we continue to work hard and be the best they can be.

Ionut Bistricianu

I became a Governor because I want to help school and children achieve best results possible and I want to feel my skills can help other people and not just myself.

My vision for our school is that there is always space for better results and our role is to find them.

Anna Cooney – Parent Governor

I have been a parent governor since Spring 2018. As a parent with two daughters at Lanesfield Primary I wanted to be able to help the school provide the best opportunities and experiences for all our children. With my experience of working in both health and social care, I am looking forward to expanding my own knowledge base as well as help to build relationships between school and parents. I am a governor for pupil premium and also link governor for lower key stage 2.

Karon Budding – Local Authority Governor (Chair of Governors)

I became a Governor to support the school in all of the excellent work that it does, whilst providing challenge to ensure we are the best that we can be at Lanesfield.

My vision is to enable the children to achieve to their fullest potential, supported by high quality teaching in a safe environment.

Sharan Chodha-Multani – Staff Governor

I am School Business Manager part of Senior Leadership Team as well as Staff Governor and a member of Curriculum and Standard Committee at Lanesfield Primary School.

Prior to commencing my role at Lanesfield in 2017, I have been employed in extensive industries ranging from Banking, Construction and West Midlands Police Force in Human Resource Management.

Along with other ingredients such as my academic qualifications and life experiences to date, I hope to bring a rich recipe of success for the betterment of our children at Lanesfield.
My desire to be part of Lanesfield Governing Board derives from a genuine interest in school enhancement at all levels and a deep rooted belief in the importance providing education for all.

Lanesfield loves learning.

Sam Davidson – Staff Governor

I became a governor to be more involved with the wider life of the school and to make a difference for the children and parents of Lanesfield.

My vision is to be the very best we can be and to equip children with the skills and attributes, to be well rounded, independent and aspirational life-long learners.

I am very proud to be part of the Lanesfield family.
