Who our Governors are

Mr David Lewis

Chair of the Governing Body

Call me David! I have a strong commitment to all the children and families at Light Oaks Infant School and the vision of providing a safe, happy, inclusive environment in which to enjoy an outstanding education.
I have been a co-opted Governor here since 2007 and was elected Chair of Governors in 2012.
I work alongside Miss Thelwell, the Head Teacher, together with her Leadership Team. My role is to support this dedicated Team in their decision making whilst at the same time challenge them to make continuous improvement in the way things are done.
I am married to Lindsay and have three daughters who have all attended this wonderful School.
I am a Chartered Surveyor and have worked in the Civil Service for thirty years.


Ms Lisa Gray

Vice Chair of the Governing Body

I became a co-opted governor at Light Oaks infant school in 2014 because I was so impressed by the school and its ethos and hardworking staff team. I became Vice Chair in 2016 and I am also the SEN Governor.

I work with as an Intervention manager within a secure care centre that houses young males aged 10 to 17, a job which I love and have been in role for 21 years. I feel that this experience helps me be a better Governor and I am able to share this knowledge and experience with the rest of my governing team.

There is a truly special feel to Light Oaks Infant School. The children  fully embody our school values in every aspect of school life and celebrate learning in everything they do. I consider myself very fortunate to be a governor here.
