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.

  • Helen Howard

    I’ve lived in Elmdon since 2003 and have a daughter in year 6 and a son in year 1, hence my role as a Parent Governor.

    I joined the Governing body in 2013 as I was keen to learn more about how the school works and to provide whatever time I have available to support the school. Chrishall Primary is a wonderful village school that provides an enormous range of activities and opportunities for the children whilst retaining the feel of a small and caring establishment.

    I own and manage a financial training business and this, combined with my accountancy background, means that I can add value to the school in my role on the Finance and Personnel Committee.

    Outside of being a Governor, running a business, renovating our new home and being a busy mum, I enjoy running and am a member of our local running club, the Saffron Striders.

  • 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.

  • Amy Tait

    Amy Tait became a governor in 2016 and her current term expires in 2020.  She is a Foundation Governor appointed by the Chelmsford Diocesan Board of Education. Amy is a member of the Finance and Personnel Committee, the Reception year group Governor, and lead for Information Technology.

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

  • 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.
