Meet The Governors
Samantha Spyve, Staff Governor
Pupil Premium and Sport
I am a staff governor at New Bolsover Primary School. I am the deputy headteacher and have worked here for many years. I work closely with pupils, staff and parents to ensure all our pupils are safe and get the education which meets their needs, enables them to maximise progress and realise their potential. I have two children of my own and I am also a parent governor at their secondary school. In my spare time, I enjoy running, which I also do with pupils at playtime's.
Kay Lovegrove, Chair of Governors
Early Years, HTPM
I am a retired headteacher who spent 36 years teaching in the Primary School sector. Derbyshire and Sheffield have both been where I have worked and lived. On retiring in 2014 I volunteered to become a school governor for the local authority and joined the governors at New Bolsover Primary School. My particular areas of experience in teaching are Early Years and Key Stage 1.
I have two grown up sons with families and enjoy spending time with my grand children. In my retirement I am enjoying visiting new places with my husband and family.
Lucy Woods, Parent Governor
Safeguarding, PSHE, reading, writing and PE
I am a parent governor at New Bolsover Primary School. I have lived in Bolsover all my life and I do not think I would want to live anywhere else. I have worked for many years within the NHS. I currently work within the Medicine Department at Kings Mill Hospital and have done so for the past seven years as a Clinical Typist. I was appointed a governor at the school just before the Covid-19 Pandemic hit and therefore I hope to be seen more in person in school from now on, rather than over Microsoft Teams. I have one child who is attending Y3 at New Bolsover and two doggies at home. I enjoy reading, going on nice walks, spending time with my family and being out in nature. Please feel free to say hello in passing in the school playground. My particular areas of interest for the school are reading, writing, P.E, PSHE and safeguarding.
SEND, disadvantaged pupils, inclusion
Now retired, I previously worked as a Teacher within the Primary sector since completing my degree at Sheffield Hallam University in 1989. During my career I have worked in four schools all within Derbyshire. I have been a Leading Maths Teacher, Deputy Head and a member of Senior Management during my career before becoming SENCO. I live in Derbyshire and my interests include walking my little dog 'Ike', reading, cooking and travel. I am married with two grown up sons and four grandchildren. My particular interest in school is Special Needs and I am the SEND Governor. You may see me around school, please feel free to approach me for a chat.
