    Governor Information and Attendance

    Governor Profiles

  • Islay Dring

    I joined the board of Governors in April 2014 and became Co-Chair in 2017. I was keen to be part of a school with such a strong focus on real-life learning experiences. In 2015 I became the Reception (now Year 3) Governor and have enjoyed following their development and progress through their school career so far. I am also the EcoSquad Governor and am delighted to be able to join the school in utilising their outdoor space to introduce the children to lessons through nature and responsibilities such as keeping chickens.

    I have one daughter and two sons who all attend Chrishall Primary and Preschool and run a homewares business and an online recruitment business.

  • Jody Hodges

    I have lived in Duddenhoe End with my husband and 2 children since 2012 and both of my children attend Chrishall Primary School.  I joined the governing body over 2 years ago and I am currently the Co-Chair of Governors.  I feel very proud to be able to dedicate time to supporting our school.  It is also a great opportunity for me as a parent to learn more about the school and what the team there want to achieve.  My children have both thrived in the caring, inclusive culture everyone at the school has helped create and I like to be able to play a part in that going forward.  I currently work for a Retail Tech company based in Newmarket.  At home we have a number of four legged friends and I am a keen horse rider and runner, allowing me to spend most of my time outside in the beautiful Essex countryside.

  • Jenny Rodda

    I have lived in Chrishall for forty years and have been a governor of this superb school for two periods – one of ten years from 1996, and then for the past five years. In that time, I have seen many changes as educational policies and thinking have evolved, but one of the great strengths of this school is that, throughout, staff have been highly professional and have sought to drive up standards whilst keeping the caring and supportive ethos which makes Chrishall School so special.

    Before becoming a governor, I taught French for several years and welcomed the opportunity to continue my interest in education and to serve the community. Although I’m kept busy with my family which includes nine grandchildren, I’m lucky enough to be able travel with my husband, enjoy walking my labrador, Rex, and singing with Royston Choral Society and the Icknield Way Choir.

  • Jane Holloway

    Jane is a Foundation Governor appointed by the District Council.  She has been a governor since 2014 and her term expires in October 2018.

    Jane is a member of Curriculum and Admissions Committee and the Head Teachers Performance Management Group.

    Jane has declared that she is a member of Chrishall Parish Council.  Jane has declared that she has no personal staff relationships.

  • Hubert de Froberville

    Hubert is a Foundation Governor, appointed by the Chelmsford Diocesan Board of Education in September 2016.  His current term expires in June 2020.

    Hubert has declared no conflict of business interests or any personal staff relationships.

    Hubert focuses on monitoring and analysing data, from performance and attainment to attendance.

  • Hannah Millward

    I have lived in Chrishall for almost three years and have a son in year 3 and a daughter who will start at the school next year.  I joined the board of governors in September 2017 because the school is at the heart of our community and I wanted to play a part in helping it continue to provide the best education for our children.  As a parent I have been impressed with not only the quality of teaching but also the REACH values which encourage the children to be caring and considerate people.

    I have a background in Human Resource Management working in large NHS organisations.  At the moment I have scaled back on work to be a full-time mum.  When time allows I enjoy family bike rides and country walks.

  • Anand Sodadasi

    I joined the Governing Body in October 2017 when I became the Rector for the Icknield Way Parish which consists of 7 churches including Chrishall. I have already been involved in taking school assemblies and leading special services such as Harvest and Remembrance services and greatly enjoyed doing them.  My role is ensuring that we maintain our distinctive Christian character and maintain our outstanding SIAMs (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) report from last year for our effective religious education, leadership and management.

    Apart from being a Governor I look after the parish ministry which keeps me busy.  My wife Shailaja is a Reader for our parish and helps with the ministry. We have two grown up children who live and work in London. I enjoy being part of various Christian groups which work for the church and I enjoy my pastoral ministry; meeting people, helping and supporting their spiritual growth and welfare within the parish.

  • Fiona Dyer

    Fiona Dyer is the staff governor.

    She began teaching at Chrishall School in October 2016.  She teaches the KS1 class Nightingale.

    Fiona is hoping one day to run off with the circus, but until then is honing her clowning and dancing skills with the children in class Nightingale.

    She has no personal staff relationships, business or pecuniary interests to declare.

  • Jeremy Smith

    I moved to Chrishall in 2016 and have 2 children at the school.  We love the village and feel that the school is at the heart of the community both in the village and surrounding area.  My wife and I have been so impressed with the school since coming to the village, and our children are thriving in the professional, supportive and caring environment that the staff create there.

    I joined the Governors in 2020, as I wanted to support the school and the community as a whole.  Through my background in finance, I am, among other things, able to offer insight and guidance to the school on matters pertaining to the accounts and how the school allocates the funding it receives.

  • Marianne Yallop

    I lived in Great Chishill for 8 years before we moved our family closer to Chrishall school, and have lived in the village for the past 4 years.  Our three children were born locally and from September 2020 when my smallest son enters Reception, all will be at Chrishall school.  I am incredibly proud of our community; we live in a strong and supportive network and our school is absolutely representative of that.  I continue to be impressed by our school's ethos and accomplishments and am thrilled to be part of the governor team.

    My background is leading large teams / global client relationships in advertising and media agencies and I currently run global client services for an advertising technology company based in London.

    We spend our free time together as a family, making the most of our amazing countryside.
