Vice Chair/Parent Governor
I am a parent governor at Whipton Barton. I work in the public sector as a Data Protection Manager, ensuring that data is kept safe and used legally. I am the link governor for Data and Curriculum.
I very much enjoy being a governor, and making a contribution, along with so many others, to the ongoing success of the Federation.

Headteacher/ Ex Officio
Louise is the Executive Headteacher of Whipton Barton Federation. She is an Ex Officio Member of the Local Governing Board.
I became a governor for Whipton Barton Federation in June 2021, soon after my husband and I moved into Whipton to lead the local parish church, St Boniface. We love Whipton and want to see the children and families here thriving. I have a background in primary school teaching and so really wanted to support Whipton Barton Federation.
