Chair of Governors

Mr Carl Bowman

I am proud to be the Chair of Governors at Grange Park Primary School. I originally joined the Governing body as a Parent Governor in 2018, and want to make a positive contribution towards our children's education.

I have 2 children that currently attend the school, so I see on a daily basis what inspirational impact the school has on all the children. Grange Park School have an amazing team of teachers and support staff that really care about the quality of education they deliver.

I am dedicated to the role of Chair of Governors and will use my personal and professional experiences to benefit the school and the children's education.

Headteacher

Mr Richard Thorpe

I have been Head at Grange Park since it opened in September 2010. Prior to that I was Headteacher at Three Oak Primary School. I am proud to be part of the team at Grange Park and am very lucky to work with such committed and hardworking Staff and Governors, who are all, as am I, totally focused on making this the best possible school for our children and the community.

Staff Governors

Mr Ian Lambie

I have worked at Grange Park since 2015 and I currently teach in Year 6 after teaching for three years in Year 4. I feel very lucky to work in such a great school with a great team of people, all of whom make Grange Park a positive environment for both staff and pupils.

As well as teaching in Year 6, I am responsible for the school’s online safety curriculum and more recently, have become Behaviour Lead.

Community Governors

Mr Bill McClements

I have been involved with Grange Park for the past 4⅟2 years getting the finance and plans to build the new school in place. I am very committed to ensuring that all children in the Stirchley area get excellent education.

My work experience in Business and Council Finance will be used to ensure the best outcomes for Grange Park School, Children and Staff.

My areas of special interest are:

  • Finance, Personnel & Complaints Committee
  • Health & Safety Committee
  • Link Governor for Maths

Mrs Jackie Hickman

I became a governor at Stirchley Primary School 22 years ago when I was a nurse at Stirchley Medical Centre, because I knew most of the pupils and their parents through my work. I was interested in education and it was a good way to become more involved with the Stirchley community. I was chair of governors for 18 years and have developed good relationships with staff over the years. When the school merged with Three Oaks Primary School to become Grange Park Primary School I wished to maintain that contact and service.

I bring many years expertise in primary school governance to the governing body, with special interests in Literacy, Music, Learning Innovation & Whole School Projects, Physical Development, Health and Wellbeing and Health & Safety. Recently I have trained some pupils in first aid and have become involved in sex education at the school.

Miss Shana Roberts

I am Shana Roberts. I am a Brookside resident and Parish Councillor for Stirchley and Brookside Parish Council, representing the Brookside ward.

I believe that everyone deserves a fair chance at a good life, regardless of where their journey begins. I believe that no child should be left behind by virtue of their post code. I believe that by instilling the right behaviours and values in our young people today, we can help build a tolerant, open and all inclusive community that celebrates individualism, and creates inspirational leaders for tomorrow.

I am passionate about developing strong links between schools, communities and businesses, and utilising these partnerships to create valuable  opportunities for our children to learn, grow and thrive.

Grange Park Primary School provides the best foundation possible for our children, preparing and supporting them for the journey to come. I am proud to be part of this journey and look forward to working with students, parents, teachers, and the wider community, in making Grange Park Primary School one of the best schools in our county, and one of the best beginnings for our children.

Miss Nikki Boronski

I am Nikki and I currently work for Stirchley and Brookside Parish Council as a Youth Work Leader. 

I have a background in Early years education, being a manager of a local preschool for 17 years and working closely with Grange Park to ensure smooth transition for the children when they start their journey in Reception. 

I have extensive knowledge of the Early Years curriculum along with safeguarding and SEND. 

I look forward to working closely with Grange Park to ensure that all children are receiving an excellent and stimulating education to enable them to develop as young people. 

Parent Governors

Mr Marc Clark

I currently work at the Telford Park School as a Behaviour Manager and Deputy Safeguarding Lead. I have a son in Year 1 at Grange Park and as a parent I am very proud of his achievements and development in the short time he has been a student. This is thanks to the inspirational staff and teaching at Grange Park.

I strive to support the wellbeing of pupils within Grange Park and our community. As a parent governor I wish to promote a healthy working environment for the learning and teaching of our young people, whilst actively encouraging good moral values.

I am very passionate about the welfare of the young people in our community. I look forward to working alongside the governing body at Grange Park, where I know all the skill sets, experience, and passion to support and make a difference to the lives of the young people within the community will be invaluable.

Mr Ross Mushet

It is a privilege to have joined the Grange Park family as a Parent governor. I became a governor as the ethos and values of the school align with my own and I wanted to “do my bit” in supporting staff and fellow governors to help enable and provide the best possible experiences for the children and community.

I live locally to the school and have seen my daughter flourish and grow in confidence since attending Grange Park and I know my son will be in good hands when he attends too.

I currently work to drive digital innovation at the Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust and I hope my skills in strategy and planning can help the school achieve its objectives and goals.
