Hampton Lucy Primary School

Governor Bios

Margaret Lunnon (Headteacher)

I am Headteacher at Hampton Lucy CofE Primary School and Nursery with 95 pupils and 10 nursery places. I have been in post for 18 years during which time I have been a Consultant Headteacher for the Local Authority working in a wide range of schools and I have piloted dual headship with another local Church of England Primary School.  I have been involved with the Diocese of Coventry leading on the Professional Leadership Course linked with Liverpool Hope University. This involved working with newly appointed Headteachers and Leaders from across the country. I am currently developing a succession plan for the school preparing the new leaders of the future, something that I am extremely passionate about.

Our school is a very good school with outstanding practice and I am proud to be part of the team that has achieved this. I was delighted at the judgment of Outstanding in our SIAS inspection because I believe that it is crucial that we all know what it means to be in a Church of England Primary School. The children are the heart of the school and it is their leadership that inspires me. The children in school feel safe and learn about the values and morals that enable them to achieve academically, socially, morally, spiritually and culturally.

Personal Comments
Hampton Lucy CofE Primary School and Nursery is a very special place for me. Three generations of my family have attended this school and I have volunteered here on and off for forty years. I have a particular interest in Early Years and Primary education because these are the foundation of all that follows. Love of learning developed in the early years will last a lifetime.

Keith Groen (Parent Governor)

Keith is a Mechanical Engineer and has worked for Jaguar Land Rover for over 15 years, having graduated from Bath University in 2002.

Outside work, Keith volunteered as a Civilian Instructor in the RAF Air Cadets for over 10 years. In the classroom he taught children in Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics based subjects. Outside the classroom, Keith is a qualified Expedition Leader and Duke of Edinburgh Gold Assessor, helping children aged 13-17 to grow in confidence and develop an adventurous, caring and creative spirit; giving them a life-changing opportunity to be the very best they can be.

Personal Comments

Hampton Lucy CofE Primary School and Nursery excels at creating an environment where children are valued and are able to develop their own self-esteem and confidence. I applied to become a parent governor because l want to support the school in their efforts to raise expectations, and help our children to achieve their potential (whatever this may be) both academically and creatively.
