Karen Hoyland

Parent Governor

I’ve been a parent governor at Ladywood since 2021. I volunteer to be a governor alongside my photography business inside the Acorn Centre. Parent governors play a vital role on governing bodies, holding the unique position of having a parental viewpoint of the school. It feels great to know that I can make a difference to the children's school years.

Tony Parkinson

Local Authority Appointed Governor/Vice Chair

Many of you may remember me from Willowgarth School where I taught Maths for 28 years before having to retire early.  I have over 30 years experience of being a school governor in Barnsley, and have really enjoyed the role.  I still have a real interest in Grimethorpe and hope I can make a difference to the education your children receive.

Clare Grainger-Roystone

Headteacher

I am very proud to be both the Headteacher and a Governor at Ladywood Primary School. I have worked in Grimethorpe since 1998 and I have been Headteacher at Ladywood since 2003; I, therefore, feel part of the unique community that I serve. Ladywood is an excellent school where children are nurtured and thrive through the work of an amazing group of teachers, key attachment teaching assistants, higher level teaching assistants and a mixture of specialist support staff. The staff at Ladywood all work together as a united team to provide the best possible outcomes for our very special children. Our ultimate aim is for our children to be successful.

My role is to steer and lead that fantastic team of staff with the support of the dedicated Governing Body. In order to do that we are constantly evolving and developing while maintaining our ethos which centres on the power of relationships to teach positivity, resilience, care and success.
