Mandy Law - Trustee and LSB Vice Chair 

I have been involved with Wyburns since 1990, when my first child began in Reception and in 1993 was elected as a Parent Governor.  My local authority and private sector company secretarial experience has enabled me to support the Governing Body in meeting its full range of responsibilities; whilst contributing my own ideas and values to assist in developing the school’s strategy, overseeing its implementation, and ensuring that goals are achieved, all within a framework of sound governance arrangements.  I am fully committed to ensuring that all pupils make the progress of which they are capable, whilst the caring and supportive ethos experienced by my own children thrives.

Mrs J Giles - Member & LSB

Hello, my name is Joyce Giles. I joined Wyburns as the LA appointed governor over 20 years ago!  I am very proud to still serve on the hard-working  governing body of a school which has such a family ethos about it - thus our children receive a well-rounded education that prepares them for life beyond primary school.

My children now attend Wyburns. I believe Wyburns improves every year - the teaching and support staff are nurturing and enthusiastic. I am really excited about being part of the Local School Board moving forward.
