Governors

Mr Justin Vaughan - Chair of Governors

I am married with 2 young children at Long Marston Primary School. I moved to North Yorkshire in 2000 and have lived in Long Marston for nearly 6 years. I am a qualified social worker with 19 years experience of working with children and families in a variety of settings for both Barnardos and North Yorkshire County Council’s Children and Young People’s Service. I hope to be able to use my knowledge and experience of working with families and safeguarding children to assist the school. I believe that good education is vital in enabling all children to fulfil their potential and provides a foundation for success in life.

Mrs Lindy Illingsworth  - Foundation Governor

I was honoured and delighted to have been asked to join the Governing Body of Long Marston School as a foundation governor.  Professionally I have taught in nurseries, schools, in further education and higher education specialising in early years.   This has been my passion since I began working in an educational nursery school when my son was three.  I am now retired and have eleven grandchildren! I live in Askham Richard, which has one of the five churches in the Parish of Marston Moor. I am a Recognised Parish Assistant and am part of the Messy Church and Open the Book teams. At St. Mary’s C of E School, Askham Richard I have been one of the foundation governors for a number of years.

Mrs Jane Burnell – Co-opted Governor

I  have lived in Hutton  Wandesley for the last 7 years. My daughter Poppy attended Long Marston School from reception age and has now moved  to Tadcaster Grammar.  I became a  Governor a few years ago with an interest in special needs mainly due to Poppy being dyslexic . I have a background in Estate Agency. However  I now  work along side my husband breaking, schooling and competing horses. I also work on a freelance basis for Go Racing in Yorkshire (Marketing and Promoting Horse racing)  and Yorkshire Federation of Young Farmers Clubs (DBS work), I truly believe every child should be given the best opportunities to learn and develop. I work alongside the Chair of Governors and also look after the premises side and marketing.

Glynis Ashford

I live in Bilbrough where I am churchwarden. I have worked in education all my life, both in secondary education and further education as a SEN coordinator.  I  am delighted to see the school ethos and how the core values are translated into the everyday life of the school, enhancing not only the Christian Distinctiveness of the school but the  learning opportunities both academic and social of the children.
