Welcome to our Governors’ section
Who are we?
Our Governing Body is made up of 12 people, drawn from different parts of the community, including parents, staff, the local authority and the wider community. Everyone brings their own skills, perspective and experiences to ensure we have a diverse team.
What are we responsible for?
We do this by holding regular meetings as a whole Governing Body and in committees. The headteacher regularly updates us on all aspects of school life and we make regular monitoring visits linked to the School Improvement Plan.
This committee receives reports on the progress and attainment of all children across the school and vulnerable groups. Governors receive subject reports from staff who come to meetings to share information as well as look at progress towards areas of the School Improvement Plan which fall within the curriculum remit. In a recent structural change, this committee has absorbed the responsibilities of the Community Committee i.e. to look at attendance and absence issues, health and well-being and engagement with parents and the wider community.
Governors on this committee discuss and share information linked to finance and the school budget as well as personnel. Again in a recent structural change, this committee absorbed the remit of the Premises Committee i.e. concerns with health and safety of the children and people in school as well as health and safety linked to the buildings and grounds.
Please find below details of how our Governing Body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each governor.
We have also provided a Register of Governor Interests and an Annual Statement of Issues for your information.

My name is Antony Bridges and I was elected as a Parent Governor in 2014 and took on the role of Chair of the Governing Body at the beginning of 2016. I am a member of the Curriculum and the Resources Committees.
I have worked in management in the NHS and I am currently a business group leader in a large science and technology business in Farnborough. My background is in organisational psychology. I believe this experience allows me to bring a different perspective to the Governing Body and helps me add value to both the committees and the wider Governor activities.
I support a number of local groups. I am a committee member of Friends of Oakley Park and an Assistant Leader for a local Beaver Scout Colony.
My first child has now left Fleet Infant School but I am looking forward to my second attending in a few years time.
I am currently the Interim Headteacher at Fleet Infant School whilst the governors are in the process of recruiting a new head. Since I have been at Fleet Infant School (5 years) my role has changed from class teacher, Year leader and Deputy Headteacher, to this current post. I am enjoying the fact that I have a more strategic role and can make a few small changes, especially around engaging our parents and informing them more effectively about their child’s learning in school.
I recently moved to Hartley Wintney, which I love and am really enjoying my new home, especially the shorter commute to work. I have 3 children 21, 24 and 27 who are a big part of my life even though two of them are now based in America.
I was co-opted to the Governing Body in 2015 and Chair the Resources committee, as well as being Vice Chair of Governors. I am married with one child, who is currently attending the school. I work in finance as an analyst for an electronics company and have previously been a councillor at Hart District Council. I do not have a background in education and am very much providing a layperson's point of view. I am proud to be involved with such a well-run school and enjoy helping them to continually improve what is already an outstanding education for our children.
My name is Rosemary Feltham and I am a co-opted Governor. I have lived in Fleet for over forty years and have been involved with many community groups and charities. At present I am a trustee and treasurer of the Fleet, Crookham and Crondall Welfare Trust.
I thoroughly enjoy contributing to Fleet Infant School Governing Body and visiting the classrooms to observe what excellent work is being done to develop the learning experiences of the children. At present I am a member of the Resources Committee. It gives me great satisfaction and pleasure to support a school, which offers such a high quality of education in a safe and caring environment.
I am a co-opted member of the Governing Body and have been connected with the school for the last 5 years. I am a member of the Curriculum committee.
I have spent many years in Music in Education and latterly I was an international music examiner for Trinity College London and still keep a connection with them by marking international theory papers.
I am very pleased to be connected with the school, which provides care and encouragement to all the children.
My name is Nicola Poynter and I have been a Parent Governor at Fleet Infant School since December 2012. I have lived in Fleet since 2007 and both my boys started their school career at Fleet Infant School. I am a product manager for a global organisation, mainly working from home. I aim to bring elements of this to my role as parent governor (challenging assumptions, refining plans, and summarising data trends).
I am proud to be involved with the school and very much looking forward to supporting the school in everything they do to provide such an excellent learning environment for the children in their care.
I am Jenny Roberts and have been appointed as a Local Authority Governor for Fleet Infant School. I am chair of the Curriculum committee. I have a background in education, having taught in primary and nursery schools in this area for 30 years. I then became Local Authority Education Advisor working with Nursery and Infant schools in Berkshire. I am an accredited moderator of The Early Years Profile and continue to work in this role as a consultant.
I have now retired from full time work but I do volunteer work for the RSPB as well as taking art classes and pursuing my interest in art and dance.
My name is Jo Tyne and I am an Associate Member on the Governing Body. I have worked at Fleet Infant School as a Class Teacher for the last two years. However, I have been a part of Fleet Infant School for many years. I have two girls, Megan aged 18 and Georgia aged 15 who both went to Fleet Infant School. I started volunteering, as a helping mum when Megan was in Year R and eventually became an LSA. I then went back to college to train to be a teacher. I thoroughly enjoy walking and have two dogs. I also enjoy cooking and baking and spend as much free time as I can in the kitchen.
My name is Louise Young and I am the Clerk to the Governing Body. I also have two part time roles in school as Personnel Officer and Senior Admin Assistant. Prior to working at school I had been a governor for 11 years.
I have always enjoyed being able to make a positive contribution to the running of the school. I have three boys aged 24, 21 and 17 all of whom went to Fleet Infant School and who have benefited from such a fantastic start to their education.
