Val Foley

Joint Vice-Chair Governors


I have worked in educational settings since 1971 – as a class teacher initially and then taking responsibility for music throughout the school.  I have been the SEN Coordinator and advisor on SEN in Enfield before becoming a deputy headteacher. I have since served as a headteacher in two schools – initially a village school then a larger Junior School for six years before retiring.  After retirement I did some part-time SEN support work for 3 years, and have taken on the roles of Parent Governor, Staff Governor and Head-Teacher.


My Grandchildren are my main interest now, besides travel, and running a health and relaxation class voluntarily for U3A members.

Sue Camp 



My initial career was in the pharmaceutical sector and following a career change I became a teacher in 1998. Having held positions in both primary, first and middle schools I became head teacher at Forres Primary in 2008.


Sarah Jones

Staff Governor


I am the Deputy Headteacher at Forres Primary School and hold a staff governor role. I have worked at Forres since 2008 with a short period spent at a local nursery school.  I have whole school responsibility for a range of areas including whole school assessment, leading upper KS2 and Pupil Premium.


Richard Ella

Co-Opted Governor


I started my career as a telecommunications officer in the RAF coordinating global communications and search and rescue operations in various theatres across the globe.  When leaving the RAF I took on a number of commercial IT positions before joining the third-sector as a ‘Head of IT’ for a national charity.  I have a wide breadth of experience across many facets of organisational strategy and development, business transformation, compliance, budget and project management.   I have previously served as a trustee on several boards and undertaken volunteer youth work as part of the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve.


Most of my family have roles in education and therefore I am acutely aware of the huge pressures schools are under on a day-to-day basis to not only educate our children, but to also equip them with the necessary social and life skills.  I became a governor to help support and guide schools in this process.


Lewis Guarniere

Parent Governor


I am currently working at the University of Hertfordshire in the School of Creative Arts.  Pathway leader for 3D Digital Modelling and Animation.  I teach industry ready skills for the animation, games and VFX industries.  In additional I am also the first year tutor and the main pastoral care tutor for the programme, with care for over 330 students, some who have disabilities.


I have previously worked as a visual effects artist for 10 years creating Digital effects for feature films.

Sarah Garry

Parent Governor


I am employed by Build UK, a trade association representing 40% of construction, as Senior Manager (Policy). I specifically monitor and respond to skills policy which includes working closely with the Department for Education and Institute for Apprenticeships to ensure construction further education qualifications meet the needs of industry employers.


I applied to be a school Governor as I wanted to give something back to my son’s school. I hope to use my experience to provide strategic support to the school and identify actions which will continually improve the school experience for our children.
