Governors

Chairman:

Mr Stewart Lawrenson

I have been a Governor for over 20 years, holding various positions within the Governing Body.  I am married to Joyce and a self employed contractor.  Three of my children attended Wray Primary School.  I became a Governor because I am passionate about all children being given the best possible education and I am a big supporter of small village school.

Vice Chair:

Mrs Stephanie Evans

I have been a Governor at the school for 2 years.  I became a Governor because I wanted to get involved in the school as I had not had an opportunity to be a parent within the school.  As I am in teacher education, I was keen to contribute what I could to the school, and for my own practice to keep in touch with developments within Primary Schools.  I very much enjoy meeting and working with the children.  My particular interest is in the School Council, ICT, English and SEND.

Mrs Anne-Marie Carruthers

I became a Parent Governor in September 2015.  I was interested in becoming a Governor as mu daughter started at the school in September and I wanted to show my support from a parent’s perspective.  We have lived in Wray for just over four years and we enjoy taking part in the village community.  My particular interests are in SEN and literacy.

Mr James Gorst

I became a parent Governor five years ago.  This was to support the school as my daughter attended the school.  I am a Local farmer and have interest in maths, sport and the practical side of being a governor.

Dr Ian Parkinson

I am a consultant anaesthetist at Lancaster Royal Infirmary with an interest in medical education and I have been a parent governor at Wray school for several years. Having 3 children at the school, I am passionate that they receive the highest standards of education in a warm and supportive environment.

Mr Ian Sedgewick

Mr Chris Stevenson

I became a parent governor in January 2017. I was keen to undertake this role as I felt that the experience and skills I had gained from working in the education sector, in a variety of positions, might be of some benefit to the school. Currently I work for the University of Central Lancashire within the area of Corporate Development. I am keen to help support the school, in any way I can, in offering the highest quality educational experience to all of its pupils. Furthermore, I am passionate about actively participating in this villages’ vibrant and caring community. I am father to one child that currently attends the school.
