                         Mr David Chapman   

                         Co-opted Governor

As a Grassmoor resident all my life, I attended Grassmoor Infant and Junior School between 1953 and 1959 before going to Tapton House Grammar School and Bradford University. I have worked in the Road Haulage Industry, Steel Works and finally in Local Government specialising in production management and finally as a Contracts Manager with direct responsibility for several million pounds. I was first appointed a school Governor by the education authority in 1974 at Grassmoor Primary School and subsequently at Deincourt, Tibshelf and a series of special schools. As a County Councillor I had many different roles particularly in Education and the Police Authority. I was awarded a Chief Constable's Commendation for "exercising effective governance and making a significant contribution to the development of the Derbyshire Police Force"

My name is Beverley Calderbank (Mrs C to those who already know me ). I was co-opted onto the Governing Body in September 2019 having been a member of the teaching staff since January 1999, retiring in July 2019.
I have a wealth of experience teaching in KS2 mainly in Y6 as well as managerial roles on the Senior Leadership Team. I was SENDCo with responsibility for children with Special Needs, Designated Person for Child Protection and Leader of Maths and PE.
