Meet the Governors
Chair of Governors - Lynn Holt
As a 'retired' teacher with grown up children, I have enjoyed spending time at Spring Lane Primary School working with Year 2 and Year 6. I am now delighted to be able to support the staff and children as a governor too. In my spare time I enjoy Zumba and dancing.
Community Governor - Rev Liz Adams
I am the Reverend at the local church, Castle Hill United Reformed Church. I work closely with many organisations in the local area, helping support families and individuals. In my spare time I like to watch Northampton Town Football club and spend time with my family.
Staff Governor - Laura Brown
I have been a member of the Spring Lane team since 2015. I am currently the Assistant Head Teacher with responsibility for teaching, learning and assessment. I enjoy teaching all subjects but my specialisms are maths, PE and music. Outside of school I spend time running around after my three lively boys, and when I can find the time I also enjoy keeping active by going to the gym and playing netball.
Staff Governor - Adam Shanahan
I have taught at Spring Lane for almost eight years after previously having taught as a cover supervisor in a large secondary school. I studied for my degree as a mature student whilst teaching full time. This gave me a solid understanding of the difficulties of maintaining a healthy work/life balance. This helps me ensure that new policies and strategies would help all staff in this regard, as well as benefiting the children of Spring Lane. I am keen to undertake any training that may be involved in order to develop as a proactive and effective Staff Governor. I am privileged to have the opportunities to make a real contribution to the strategic management of the school, adding an extra interesting and rewarding dimension to work. I am interested in keeping up to date with developments in teaching practice in order to help shape the education, that staff work so hard to provide the children who attend Spring Lane.
