Vice Chair – Paul Moody
I have been a governor at Dearham School since 2009. All four of my children have been through the School since our family moved to Dearham in 2007 from Yorkshire. I am keen to support the school and always want to know what is going on. I am happy for parents, staff or students to contact me if they have any feedback or suggestions for the Governing Body. I am also a Governor at Cockermouth School. I have worked in a wide variety of roles within the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. Covering roles such as operational delivery, project management, governance, stakeholder management and policy work enables me to bring a wide variety of different management skills to the Governing Body.
Chair: Joan Kearton
Although not native to Cumbria, I am proud to be a part of this community that I now call home.
Having worked in education as a teacher of English and Director of Learning for more than twenty years, my role as Chair of Governors is one that I am passionate about. I firmly believe in the power of education and the importance of quality first teaching in developing the lives and opportunities of young people. I consider it a privilege to be able to help guide and influence the future of our community.
