The school has a Local Governing Body (LGB) which is responsible for making decisions about the running of the school.  Its power is delegated from the board of Trustees of Ebor Academy Trust (Ebor’s Scheme of Delegation can be found here). For more information regarding the trustees, please see the Ebor Academy Trust website (the Governance page can be found here).

The LGB consists of members of the local community interested in education and no formal qualifications are required as full training is given. The headteacher is automatically a member of the LGB because of their position, but cannot be the chair. Parents are welcome to join the LGB and when there are vacancies, we particularly welcome applicants with skills in managing budgets, legal work, human resources, running a business or any work connected with young people.

Meet The Governors

Emma Stone
Clerk (stepped down April 2024)

I’m Emma and this is my first role as a school clerk. Alongside this new role, I also work as an Assistant Teacher within KS2 at Marfleet. Previous to these roles, I worked as a business administrator. 

I have three children, two of whom are now in secondary education, and my youngest is still attending Marfleet Ebor Academy. As a child, I also attended Marfleet, so on a personal level, the school is very sentimental to me!

I’m very passionate about children’s education and development and look forward to fulfilling my new role.

Leanne Everingham
Parent Governor

Hiya I’m leanne and I’m new to parent governor. I am keen to learn new things on my way.

I have been a parent at marfleet for many years with all 3 of my boys attending, 2 which have now left .

Always enjoyed being involved in this school in activities with the children and will put all my effort into being that parent governor.

Alice Hemingway
Staff Governor

Hi, I am Alice Hemingway and I have been teaching at Marfleet since 2013. I have worked across all age groups and key stages but my specialism and passion is for the early years. I have worked in the foundation team for 6 years and have just recently become the EYFS lead, a job which I love. I also support staff in school to develop the creative curriculum. My aim is to give every child the opportunity to find their passion, just like when I was at school and developed my love of music and dance.
I am really looking forward to being a staff governor at Marfleet. I feel that my experience and passion will help support all children receive the education they deserve and to find their future passions and aspirations.

Jack Moore
Vice Chair

I’m Jack and this is my first role as a school Governor. I am particularly excited about this position having spent my entire childhood (up to the age of 11) at Marfleet Primary, and serving as Head Boy of the school in 2007. 

Since leaving college in 2015, I have worked for local mental health charity Hull and East Yorkshire Mind, leading on their marketing and communications activity. My role involves raising awareness of the services that the charity offers, educating local people on mental health, and empowering people to reach out and get the support they need and deserve.  

In my spare time, I enjoy going on holiday, socialising with friends and family, and watching TV. I am also actively studying a marketing degree with The Open University. 

As a Governor, I am looking forward to utilising my skills and connections to enable the school and the wider school community to continue to thrive.

Vivienne Wilkes
Chair of Governors, safeguarding governor

I am Vivienne, the current Chair of Governors. I have been a Governor for 15 years on various Governing bodies across Nottinghamshire, Hull and East Riding.

I am married with a family.  I am a qualified secondary school teacher with a degree in Theology, English and Education. I currently work outside of the education sector but feel that my work as a Governor allows me to continue my engagement.

I hold various voluntary roles across Hull and East Riding in addition to my employment. I feel that this allows me to bring a wide variety of skills and experience to the role of school Governor.

Natasha Whitehead
Parent Governor (stepped down)
I am Natasha and I am new to being a parent governor. My daughter is at the lower end of the school and loves it at Marfleet.
For 11 years I have worked at a local secondary school, teaching English to year 11 in Intervention sessions. For the last 4 years I was also an assistant progress leader for year 11 and my main role was to support students making negative progress. I feel like I have a lot to offer Marfleet with the knowledge I have gained from my previous roles.
I am now taking a little time out to care for my Mum and to be a Mum myself! I feel that I am approachable and personable and I am always happy to help where I can.
Mrs V Shaw
Executive Head, Head of School, Designated Safeguarding Lead
