Jo Barnes

Jo Barnes

Governor Category: Co-opted

Appointed by: The governing body

Current term of office: 18/5/21 to 17/5/25. First appointed 18/5/17

Register of business interest: none


I joined the governing body after retiring and feel that I have the time to commit to the important role of being a governor. I believe I bring the skills and knowledge that I gained in education over my teaching career to the governing body, and I would like to continue to be involved in my local school, using my experience to support the young people of the village.

I have lived in the village since 2000 and have always found it to be a friendly and supportive environment. I have been a member of the village festival committee for the last three years.


In July 2016 I retired after a teaching career of thirty-seven years, mainly working with the secondary age group, although latterly with our family primary schools. I am involved in sport, particularly hockey, where I officiate at National level.
