Meet the Governors

The Governing body is made up of staff, parents, members of the Local Authority and members of the local community. Governors play a vital role in the leadership and management of the school, providing support and challenge to ensure that the school is the very best that it can be.  They set the strategic direction of the school by working with the leadership team to, amongst other responsibilities, agree policies, set and review targets, review budgets and staffing, ensure parents and pupils are involved, consulted and informed as appropriate, and make information available to the community.

At Studlands Rise the governors take a keen interest in the school and regularly visit to make sure that they understand how the school runs on a day-to-day basis by taking part in learning walks with the leadership team, conducting some staff and pupil voice, taking part in class trips, supporting whole school events, to name just a few.

The Full Governing Body meets termly.  The Curriculum committee and Finance, Premises and Personnel committee also hold joint meetings on a termly basis.

Please direct any correspondence that you have for school governors to the school office.

Mrs Jane Ormsby

Parent Governor

Member of Curriculum Committee

Linked governor for Safeguarding, CLA, Prevent, Pupil Premium, Inclusion


I have lived in Royston many years and have brought my children up here for the last 11.  All three of my children have been to Studlands with the youngest just embarking on her time in Reception.  Having three children I understand that all children are different and what I hope I do is to support our wonderful school in encouraging these differences and enabling children to achieve both personally and academically throughout their time with us.  I am currently the Vice Chair and link governor for  PSHE and special educational needs and disabilities something I have a passion for and some personal experience in.  I also sit on the curriculum committee and enjoy spending time in school with the teachers and children getting to know them and seeing what they do.

Outside of Studlands I have many years experience in working in the NHS and more recently in a large charity. I spend many hours at sports clubs and activities with my children and am involved in helping with my son’s rugby team.  If I do find spare time I enjoy walking my dog, swimming, going to the theatre and camping!
