Joanne Poole

My name is Joanne Poole, I am the Acting Headteacher of Home Farm Primary School and also a member of the Governing Body. As headteacher I advise the other governors about the day to day work of the school. This helps the governors make important decisions about the curriculum we offer, the way we allocate spending, which staff we appoint and other strategic decisions for which the Governing Body are responsible.

Claire Seavers

My name is Claire Seavers. I am Mummy to twins who attend Home Farm Primary School and they like to keep me on my toes! My husband and I have lived in the area since 2013, and we became part of the school community when the twins attended the nursery in 2018/19.

As a parent, I can see that the school is motivated to be the best it can be and I want to be able to help them achieve that. A parent’s voice is an important one when it comes to our children’s education and I am delighted to have the opportunity to take ideas from the playground to the table.

I have a background in teaching, in particular the Early Years, and I understand the importance of ensuring our children’s educational experience is a positive one. I am happy to challenge if something does not feel right and I believe that there is always room to improve; we never stop learning!
