Liz Woodham - Co-opted Governor - Co-Chair of Governors

I joined Fawcett’s governing body in early 2011 as a ‘community governor’ and then became a member of the Trumpington Federation governing body when it was established.  I used to be a primary teacher in north London and now work for NRICH, a mathematics education project based here in the university, so one of the reasons for wanting to be a governor is my desire to see fantastic teaching and learning of maths.  However, I am also passionate about primary education being a broad and rich experience for young children.  I loved school as a child, and in a very small way, would like to help children in Trumpington enjoy their primary school years too.

Catherine Jones - Co-opted Governor - Co-Chair of Governors

Emily Black - Co-opted Governor

I became a governor in March 2017, shortly after moving to the Trumpington area. As a mother of two young children, I found the importance of high quality early years and primary education to be top of mind, and wanted to contribute. After over a decade in strategy consulting, I'm keen to use my analytical, business skill set to support the Trumpington Federation.
