Governors of Treloweth Primary School

Our school is proud to be part of the Crofty Multi Academy Trust, the running of which is overseen by the board of trustees – chaired by Mr Mike Hosking.

The Trust Board is made up of volunteers, mainly people who have been school governors in the past but also including people with specific business or educational skills. They set the strategic direction for the Trust, hold the Trust to account for its outcomes for students and oversee the work of the Executive Officers.

Each school has a Local Governing Body (LGB) who have delegated responsibility for standards and outcomes in that school, its safeguarding and its relationships with external stakeholders, especially parents. The Chairs of LGBs are held to account by the Board for outcomes in those areas.

The LGB will use its detailed knowledge and engagement with stakeholders to ensure that their school is being well served by the executive leadership, and has direct access to the board if there are concerns.

The Local Governing Body of Treloweth School are all volunteers who give up their time to represent the community and to help shape the direction and aims of the School, see our Governors below.

For further information regarding the structure of the Crofty Multi Academy Trust, including details of trustees and members please use the Crofty MAT tab.

The Governors of Treloweth School are proud of their involvement in school life. They meet regularly and take an active role in supporting the school. Each Governor has an important role to play and are considered an important part of our school team. Each year they make a report that is included in the Annual Report to Parents. If you need to contact a Governor, please address your query to the Chair of Governors, Mrs K. Monk, or the relevant Governor, care of:

Meet the Governors

Mrs K Monk - Chair of Governors (Term of Office 29/09/20- 28/09/24)

I am a mother of three children, two of which have been /are at Treloweth which has given me the opportunity to be fully involved in the daily activities within the school. As I'm always doing the school run I have met lots of parents and children, and have developed some great friendships over the years. I am  a qualified nurse and have worked RCHT and at St. Julia’s Hospice,  which has given me great experiences and an understanding of different lifestyles.

I feel passionate about my children's education and that of others which first led me to become a governor at Treloweth. Through my first term of office I gained experience and knowledge which led me to become Chair of Governors when we became a trust in 2013. I have been very involved in the running of the school and feel the passion and dedication of all the staff at Treloweth is outstanding. I love the open policy of Treloweth and fully support this and am always available for a chat or to offer advice to any parents. I look forward to being involved in the ongoing journey of Treloweth for a long time to come.

I am the Safeguarding Governor and the Governor responsible for budget monitoring. ( kmonk@croftymat.org)

 

 

 

 



Mrs F Nicholls - Foundation Governor (Term of Office 31/10/21-31/10/23)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have six sons and two grandchildren. I worked as the Special Needs Co-ordinator at Treloweth for 25 years until I retired. I have been a governor for many years and have enjoyed being part of a team working to improve outcomes for our pupils. My areas of responsibility on LGB are SEND and Inclusion & Pupil Premium.

Since retirement I have continued to involve myself closely with the school and have endeavoured to maintain contact with as many pupils as possible.

My interests include reading, travelling and being part of a local theatrical and operatic society.

I am always available to answer any queries or discuss any issues you may have.
 

Mr  Nedeljkovic - Staff Governor (Term of Office 1/12/2021-30/11/2025)

As a relatively new addition to both Treloweth and teaching, I am thrilled to become a member of the staff governors. I joined Treloweth during my NQT year in 2020 and have loved teaching in year 5 and getting to know the school and fantastic community over the past eighteen months. I graduated a Music degree and am currently enjoying leading music; I hope to continue to develop the teaching of music in Treloweth so that all children enjoy and are able to think and act musically.  

Outside of school, I enjoy getting outdoors in the Cornish countryside and coast with my dog, and am a keen musician, having played the guitar since I was a teenager.  

 

  Julia Mitchell - Parent Governor (Term of Office 28/03/22- 28/03/26)                               

Ellie .jpgEleanor Glanville  -  Parent Governor (Term of Office 28/03/22- 28/03/26)  

I am a mum of 2 boys, who both thoroughly enjoy their time at Treloweth. My eldest has moved up to secondary school and my youngest is in his final primary year.

As a parent governor, my areas of responsibility are Staff Wellbeing & Development and Stakeholder Engagement.

I grew up in Illogan and, since returning to the village, I see how important the school is as a community hub.

I’m a software developer & analyst by profession. Increasing family care responsibilities necessitated a move to freelance work.

I have a deep interest in psychology, child development and human behaviour. Experiencing childhood alongside my children and their friends has given me a real drive to be a better communicator.

I also volunteer as a Carn Brea parish councillor. I am enjoying the opportunity to learn more about the challenges and successes experienced by the wider community.

For relaxation, I enjoy being in, on or by the sea, gardening and baking.
