Izzy Reid-Mackay

I am a parent of four children, one of whom attends Braunstone Frith Primary Academy. I am also a teacher at a local primary school.

I wanted to become a governor to help develop the school so children in the local area get the best education possible. I would like to see Braunstone Frith Primary Academy be an outstanding school and for all children to make good progress and I will support & challenge school leaders to achieve this


Graham Foster

I am a parent governor and I have two children, one of whom that attend this Academy. I wanted to become a governor to find out what the academy was doing for my children and if I could help in any way.

I would love to see the children’s achievements reflect the work that is being done. I want to show our community that we work as a team and that they understand what governors do.

Jane Brown

I am currently principal at New College Leicester. I have been working in education for about 20 years and enjoy making a difference in the lives of young people. I became a governor because I want to help the young people of the area get the best out of their education.


Ann Paull

I started teaching in 1968 in London. I have taught in primary schools, mainly in Leicester, ever since until I retired in 2015. I was married to a teacher and I have one daughter.

I was very pleased to be invited to be a governor at BFPA and be involved in the strategic overview of the academy. It is exciting to share the responsibility of helping the academy move to outstanding.

I would love to see the academy move from good to outstanding, reflecting the hard work of both staff and children.

Boyd Pick

I work for Leicester City Council and have worked in schools as a Premises Officer and Estates Manager. I am interested in the teaching and learning environment as well as how the school community can benefit from the academy site.

I became a Governor to be part of the merger between the two schools and to help develop the building. I am also interested in making life outcomes better for pupils, parents and carers. I would like the academy to be ranked as outstanding and for parents to use the academy site more.

Marie Bodycot

I am a mum of two children, the youngest of which is in Year 4 at Braunstone Frith Primary Academy. As a parent, I support my children’s education 100%. Having seen changes and improvements at the Academy since 2009, the opportunity to be a parent governor means I can help Braunstone Frith more towards becoming an outstanding academy, where all children can reach their potential.

Samantha Coleman

I am a parent of two children whom both attend Braunstone Frith Primary Academy. My oldest is in Year 4 and my youngest is in Foundation Stage.
I wanted to become a governor to contribute to the work of the Governing Body in ensuring high standards of achievement for all children and young people in the Frith Primary Academy. Raising educational standards in school is a key priority at Braunstone Frith Primary Academy.

Amy Rowley

I first joined Braunstone Frith Primary Academy as a teaching assistant in 2013 and have thoroughly enjoyed being part of the academy. My children have attended in the past (as have I) and I feel that this close link to the academy has been beneficial to my role as staff governor as I have a multi layered interest in the academy.

In my role as a governor I feel involved in our vision moving forward and have enjoyed being a part of academy improvement decisions.

I love the academy, staff, our children and I am passionate about providing them with a happy, safe and enriching environment where they can be inspired to learn and encouraged to reach their full potential.

Karen Duggan

I am the Assistant Head of Foundation Stage and ICT at Braunstone Frith Primary Academy. I spent 10 years teaching in the United Arab Emirates before arriving at Braunstone Frith Infant School. I am pleased to be part of the Governing Body of Braunstone Frith Primary Academy. The children are at the heart of all that we do and I am proud to be part of that for this academy.

Raksha Winter

I was born in Kenya and came to England when I was 7 with no English. I have lived & worked in Leicester for most of my life. I am a teacher and have taught in 3 schools, all very different in social and ethnic mix.  I was a Deputy Head teacher at one school for many years and responsible for Diversity and PSHE and I thought I had something to offer Braunstone Frith Primary Academy as a Governor. I have worked at Braunstone Frith as a Behaviour Mentor previously. I feel children’s health and well being is key to them achieving their full potential in education.  I want to see the academy move forward in its efforts to improve outcomes for all of its children.
