Mr Brian Williams - Chair of Governors / Responsibility for Safeguarding

I am delighted to be a Governor of B.P.A. I join this governing body after working for over twenty years in education. I have been lucky enough to have worked across all age ranges in a variety of positions from Class Teacher, to Advisory Teacher and as a Head of School.

I am now retired and spend my days reading, writing, walking and cycling around the valleys of Kirklees. I love music and travelling and consider myself to be learning all the time. I am therefore very happy to be a part of this exciting new venture which has, of course, the experience of learning, at its core.

It is exciting to be participating in this new project and to be one small part of a team that is committed to providing the children of this area with an outstanding educational experience. I look forward to meeting and working with teachers, parents, carers and all school staff as we prepare our young people to be articulate, positive and active members of our community whilst readying them for life beyond the boundaries of school.

Mrs Susan Smith - Responsibility for SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disability)

I have been employed at Moor End Academy for over 21 years and in that time I have had a variety of roles. I started my Moor End career as an ETA working with students who have a visual impairment before being trained to become a Braille Technician. I then moved into the Main Office and became an Administrator before becoming the Office Manager. I was recently promoted and I am currently employed as an Executive Assistant for Moor End Multi Academies Trust a role which will give me the opportunity to work with all of the academies within the Trust.

I became a Governor at Moor End Academy because I have a great interest in educational matters and enjoy watching all of our students grow, learn and succeed. I was a Governor there for 4 years and thoroughly enjoyed my term of office.

I am delighted to have been accepted as a Governor at Beaumont Primary Academy and look forward to working with the staff as this new venture grows and flourishes. I hope that the wealth of experience and knowledge that I have will be an asset to the Governing Body of the academy.

Mr Paul K Turner - Responsibility for Health and Safety

After finishing my degree in Engineering at Huddersfield University in 2003, I have been working for Cummins Turbo Technologies in a variety of different roles including Project Engineer, Operations Leader for the aftermarket remanufacturing department, and most recently within the company’s worldwide manufacturing support group where I have responsibility for new product launch strategy and integration.

Having my own children at Infant and Primary school, I take an increasing interest in their education, their environment and how school encourages and helps them to learn through interesting topics and activities.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, taking days out and about on our bikes. I also play rugby through the winter which involves many Saturday afternoons playing and some training during the week. I would really like to get involved with coaching over the next 2 to 3 years.

Mrs Rachel Smith

I have spent 30 years working for the Lloyd’s Banking Group, predominantly in a Leadership Role managing various projects and programmes. I was also a coach and mentor for others moving into leadership. I am currently a self-employed Management Consultant, working with a number of public sector organisations. I also run leadership development and commercial acumen programmes in a number of corporate organisations both in the UK and Middle East.

I have a daughter currently in year 10 at high school and another daughter who has just started at university. Having the experienced the education system as a parent I understand the need for clear strategies, aims and objectives. I enjoy spending time with my family in my spare time and travelling when possible.
