Following our Ofsted inspection in July 2017 and movement out of Special Measures and into Good, the Interim Academy Board (IAB) is now continuing to grow the Governing Body of the school (in accordance with statutory requirements and best practice) to take on the full roles and responsibilities of a Governing Body in their entirety.
They will continue to implement those actions required to ensure Brockhampton embeds recent improvements and develops the capacity for such improvements to be sustained and built upon.

I am a parent governor; I have one child, Jack, who is currently in Year 6. Jack has been part of Brockhampton School since he started in the pre-school at aged 2. My husband also attended Brockhampton Primary School many moons ago!
I feel very passionate about education and would like to contribute to providing our children with the very best educational opportunities.
I am educated to degree level, have worked in the finance sector for over 17 years with my career spanning accountancy, statistics and audit.
Helen Bradnock - Parent Governor
I am a parent governor, with a focus on safeguarding within Brockhampton School.
My daughter, Jessie-Mai, is currently in Year 1 at the school.
I work for a charity which supports children in care, and children with disabilities, to have a voice in the decisions made about their lives. Before that, I worked as a police officer for over 10 years, specialising for a number of years in child protection.
I am currently studying part-time for a Masters in Language and Communication Impairment in Children.
I am passionate about ensuring that children have the opportunity to start their education in an environment within which they can thrive.
Sheila Wilson - Community Governor
I've been lucky to have spent nearly forty years teaching in a range of secondary schools, from rural to inner city and fulfilled diverse roles from Head of Department, to Head of Sixth Form to Assistant Headteacher. I have always been motivated by the belief that the key to progress lies in establishing strong working relationships and have worked hard with staff, students parents and governors to achieve this. I am hoping to continue this as a governor at Brockhampton. I come into school on a weekly basis to support literacy by hearing children read : it is a highlight of my week. There is a very lovely atmosphere in the school.
I am a keen and committed sportswoman, particularly with regards to cycling,tennis, walking and being in the wilds of the countryside. I love to travel and learn languages, read many genres of literature and indulge a life long love of History and archaeology at many levels.
Steve Pinches - Community Governor - Vice Chair
I joined the IAB as a Community Governor in early 2018. I live in the local area and have string connections with school. My daughter attended Brockhampton for the duration of her primary education, as did my step-sons.
My background is in semiconductor physics and I currently work in the telecommunications industry making products for optical communications networks.
To me, Brockhampton has a special ethos and identity that I would like to see preserved and built upon.
Naomi Mansell - Staff Governor
I have been a dedicated member of the team at Brockhampton for 4 years now and witnessed the rapid improvement the school undertook from “Special Measures” to “Good”. Over the past 4 years I have held different positions with increased responsibility, culminating in my current position as Early Years/Year 1 Phase Leader and Deputy Safeguarding Lead. I am committed to ensuring our children have the best possible start to their education and reach their full potential. I am highly motivated and very much look forward to being part of the governing body at Brockhampton and bringing a different viewpoint as a staff governor.
Gemma Edward - Staff Governor
I am a Year 5 teacher and Science coordinator here at Brockhampton Primary School. I have been a teacher for 14 years, specialising in key stage one and in more recent years have developed my expertise in key stage two. Having taught every year group from Early Years to Year 6 I have a good understanding of the curriculum expectations and have a wealth of teaching and learning experience.
I have been fortunate to teach in small rural schools in Herefordshire, a large city school in Hereford and a Primary Academy in Bristol where I led and coordinated SEND.
