Lowick Governing Body
  • Mr Robert O'Rourke

    Chair of Governors

    I joined the Governing Body of Lowick First School in September 2016 as the Local Authority Governor, In April 2017 I became Chair.
    I have 2 children in the school, and run a business locally. I am keen to contribute to creating an environment in which every child is able to learn and reach their full potential and where they feel happy and secure.

  • Mrs Kerry Bone

    Vice-Chair of Governors

    I have long standing connections to Lowick first School. I attended this school as a child and have many happy memories of my early education here. It was this school that first nurtured my love of learning and inspired me to become a teacher. My eldest son now attends Lowick school in year 1.

    I have 15 years experience of educating children in nurseries and primary schools. I specialised in early years but also have experience of teaching throughout primary and middle schools. I hope to use the skills and experience I have to help this school continue to thrive and to develop a love of learning in other children. As a foundation governor I also have an interest in promoting strong Christian ethos throughout the school.
