About Our Governors 
Hello and a very warm welcome to Wellesley Primary School.

Stewart Osgood - Chair of Governors

The governing body volunteer their time to help support the school, so that every child is able to achieve in a happy and secure environment and "Aim high, reach for the sky".

We’re all very proud of our school and recognise the hard work and commitment of the staff team who work hard to provide the very best opportunities for our children to succeed.

If you would like to contact us please email our Clerk, Kath Jones at the school email address.

I joined Wellesley Primary School as the Deputy Headteacher in 2013 and have loved every minute since my arrival.  Before joining Wellesley I have worked for two previous schools.  I enjoy my role as a governor and feel very lucky to be part of the dedicated team that help the children grow and flourish and become passionate about the learning.  The commitment of the parents and governors really does make a big difference to our thriving school.
Naomi Barton

Joined as Co-opted Governor in October 2021.

I have lived in South Gloucestershire almost all of my life, and in Yate since 2017.  I live close to the school with my husband and my dog and was honoured to join the Board of Governors in Autumn 2021.  I am pleased to be able to support my local community through my role at Wellesley.

As well as my Governor role, I am a Civil Servant with extensive experience of stakeholder management across a number of departments in challenging and sensitive environments, as well as experience in operation and project deliver, and risk managment.
Jemma Morgan

I am originally from South Wales, but moved to central Bristol in 2007 and then to Yate in 2010.  I volunteered to become a Co-opted Governor at Wellesley Primary School because I want to serve my local community.  I also have two small children so I care about the education children receive and want to help our local school to be the best it can be.

At work I am a Consultant and have over 10 years experience of IT in both the private and public sector.  I am also a trustee for a National Charity so have experience of governance, setting business strategy and financial reporting.
Stewart Osgood (Stew)

Joined as Parent Governor in October 2019.

I currently have 2 children at Wellesley; therefore, I have a self-interest in the continued success of the school.  I hope to bring a positve outlook to the Governing team, looking at how we can problem solve and build on what the school already delivers to our children and community as a whole.

As a day job I am a Government Commercial Manager managing multi-million pound contracts, hoping to offer what I can in terms of skills and personal attributes to be a warm and approachable member of the team.
Ian Jones

I became a Governor in October 2016, and as of September 2021 it is my priviledge to be the current Chair of Governors. 

Both our youngest daughters have attended Wellesley, and even though they have now gone onto Higer and Secondary education respectively, it is only right that I therefore give back something to the school in recognition of the fantistic educational start they were both given  

I have worked in the insurance IT/Customer service sector for over 40 years and conveniently live very close to the school.
