Who's who?

Mrs Simon Blake - Chair of Governors


Mr Andrew Pegg - Vice Chair of Governors

"I have been a member of the Governing Board since 2014 and for the next 2 years will hold the position as Chair of Governors. I work for BAE SYSTEMS at Warton as an Engineering Manager and try to bring non-Education sector leadership and experience to the Governing Board. My association with Whitefield Primary School began as a parent of two sons who enjoyed their time at the school."


Mrs Kamini Gandhi


Mrs Sarah Penman

"I have been a governor at Whitefield for 7 years, starting as a parent governor when my daughter was in Year 1. My son is still currently in Year 4 and both of my children have thoroughly enjoyed their time at Whitefield. I am the Subject Leader for Science at a local High School and have a particular interest in the primary science curriculum at Whitefield. Through my role as Chairperson of the Standards Committee, I have the opportunity to look closely at pupil progress across all year groups and monitor the implementation of the curriculum, and improvement of standards across the school."

Mr Neil McGregor


Mrs Rebecca Caslake

I am a Mum to two young children who both attend Whitefield. I enjoy spending spare time with my husband, children and extended family and friends on days out, walking, swimming, playing board games (although they can get a bit competitive!). We love camping in our tent, it’s great to get away for the weekend and have a bit of time together device free!  I have worked in education for a number of years. First as Secondary Science teacher and now, following a career break to care for my children, as Learning Mentor at Whitefield. I am passionate about education. I have been a staff governor for the last year and I am committed to helping Whitefield to achieve the best outcome for each individual child in terms of their academic achievement and emotional well-being.


Miss Judith Ward

"My name is Judith Ward. I am one of the Governors at Whitefield Primary School.    It was with great pleasure that I agreed to the position here at Whitefield, as I had heard nothing but great things about the school and I would like to be a part of continuing to driving the school forwards.  I am currently teaching at another school within the South Ribble area and I currently teach in the Year 1 class but also have experience in Reception and Nursery. I have been teaching for nearly seven years now and I thoroughly enjoy it.  My hobbies are dancing, fitness classes, and socialising with family and friends.  I enjoy travelling and I have been fortunate enough to have experienced teaching in China and Thailand."


Mrs Janice Adams


Miss Laura Nuttall


Mrs Kerry Oram

"I have two children at Whitefield Primary School.  I was elected as a Parent Governor in July 2017.  I have ten years’ experience as a Human Resources Manager within the education sector (with experience across state schools, Academies and private schools).  I have particular expertise in employment law and resource management within schools.  I also have a real passion for working with schools; I genuinely believe that no-one can take away the value of a good education and I enjoy supporting schools to be great places for children and also great places to work."
