Mrs Sharon Hewlett
I joined the governing board in 2016 and was elected vice-chair in 2018 and chair in 2019. My background is in university teaching and management. I have enjoyed being able to use my knowledge of education funding and inspection to support the school whilst learning about the primary curriculum. It is a privilege to see our pupils‘ love of learning and support for each other and the creativity and dedication of our staff.
I joined the Governing body in October 2020 as a Parent Governor. Being a Governor allows me to understand how the school is run and contribute to the longer term strategies and plans.
I have two children who have attended the school and during their time there I have been a member, Treasurer and Chair of the PTFA and have helped out in school by listening to the children read in various classes.
I work in the Financial Services industry as an IT consultant and have had various roles in that industry for more years than I care to remember.
I joined the governing body in June 2023 as a parent governor and recently moved into the village. With 2 children at the school (in Ash and Oak classes) and as a volunteer with the PTFA, I wanted to help the school to perform at its best and help where I can with my business knowledge (as a Director in a professional services firm). I'm looking forward to spending more time in school and with the other governors to help develop and drive the school strategy and vision.
I joined the Governing Body in June 2023 as a Co-opted Governor. At this time, my child was about to start at Andoversford Primary School in Reception. I live locally to the village and my background is in Primary Teaching (classroom based) and then running a nurture base in a large mainstream primary school. More recently I have started teaching students with Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties in a local, Cheltenham based college. I look forward to supporting the hard-working staff at Andoversford, within my role as a Governor, and am excited to be a part of this team.
I joined the Governing Board in May 2021 having seen an advert for governor vacancies while on maternity leave. I was pleased to be appointed as it gives me an opportunity to play a part in supporting the village community and learning more about how our school is run and the strategy and plans for its future.
I have worked in Cyber Security for ten years and support organisations in planning and conducting simulated cyber attack exercises to assess and ultimately improve their security.
