Working Together

Contact Us


The Governing Body is responsible for the strategy and long-term running of the school. They support and challenge the Head Teacher and the Senior Leadership Team, ensuring that the school as a whole is providing the best education for all pupils. They work in partnership with the entire school community, communicate regularly with the school, conduct visits and attend special assemblies.


The Governing Body are involved in lots of decisions about the school, but the Head Teacher is the person to approach with individual queries about day-to-day issues. 


If you are interested in becoming a Governor, please contact the school to obtain information and an application pack.

Dominic Honey - Chair of Governors


My name is Dominic Honey and I have been a governor at Grange Park Infant and Nursery School since Spring 2018. I previously served as a school governor about 20 years ago when my children were at primary school. I have a strong interest in schools and education because I come from a family of teachers (my mother, father, wife and daughter were/are all teachers).


Schools are under great pressure at the moment and I would like to play my part to help increase attainment and opportunity for children. I also want to make sure that the hard working staff get the maximum support.


I am a chartered surveyor and I have spent my career in the property industry. Part of my job involved advising education sector governing bodies on property and finance issues.


I am also a mentor for the Career Ready programme, supporting 16-18 year old students.


Lorraine Plummer-Walrond - Partnership Governor


My name is Lorraine Plummer-Walrond and I have been a governor at Grange Park Infant and Nursery school since 2007.  During this time, I have seen the school go from strength to strength and this is a testament to the hard work of the senior leadership team, teachers and staff members.


I initially joined the school as a governor in order to give back to the community.  It is a privilege to play a part in helping to run the school, as I feel education is important and we need to maximise the potential of every child.


I have a son who attends secondary school and throughout his life he has been blessed to have people who have supported and encouraged him in many ways but especially with having a growth mindset.  This is what Grange Park Infant and Nursery School is instilling in their students every day.


As a former actress, journalist and now a Computer Science teacher, I hope to use my transferable skills to make a positive contribution to supporting and improving the school in the future.
