Mrs Sue Fernyhough - Chair

‘I am a co-opted Governor and have a background in education, latterly as a headteacher of a primary school. I joined the board in December 2018 and was vice-chair before becoming chair this year and hope my knowledge and experience in School leadership can bring something valuable to the board here at Osgodby.

I enjoy being a Governor as it gives me the opportunity to be part of the community and share my skills and knowledge to help all children reach their full potential. There are a lot of challenges and responsibilities in running a successful school and as a governor, I pride myself on knowing everyone is doing the best they can to help the children learn and give them the best opportunity for their future. 

Since I left full-time employment in education, I have embarked on a new career as a mixed media artist. I love the opportunity I now have to be inventive in my work and when not creating, I enjoy spending time in the greenhouse, planting and nurturing new plants.’


Mr Steve Taylor

I have been a governor at the school for over 10 years, including a year as vice-chair and 5 years as Chair of Governors a position I have now stepped down from.  Both of my children attended the school, and it gave them a good grounding for their academic development.  The school has always been very close to our hearts.

I have run my own business’s for over 20 years, selling Photographic books as well as another cutting grass, lawns, paddocks and playing fields, as well as working part time as a photographer.


Mrs Sarah Greig

'I am the Business Manager here at Osgodby Primary and two other local schools so bring financial and premises experience to the governing body.

The role is directly linked to my job at school, and this also means I can help answer queries and questions there and then in the governing body meetings so we can be more efficient.

When I am not at work, I enjoy going to dance/Pilates classes at the gym and spending as much time with my husband, grown up children and granddaughter.’


Mr Lee Alldrick

'My role on the Governing Board is Parent Governor which gives me the unique position of having a parental viewpoint of the school. Through the 3 children I have at the school I have first hand experience of the delivery of the curriculum and how the school is viewed through the children / parent's point of view.  Having spent a number of years as a volunteer at Osgodby and a member of the PTA, I felt I had the right experience to make a difference as a Governor and am looking forward to my first year in this position. Having spent the last 24 years working as a complaint handler by profession I have vast experience of dealing with issues constructively, discreetly and seeing them through to a positive outcome for all involved. As Governor, I am most looking forward to ensuring the school continues adhering to the excellent values I see every day and it's drive to release pupil's full potential in a safe and guarded environment. Away from my time spent at the school, I am a hands on, devoted father that enjoys family days out and exposing my children to new experiences. Travelling, trips to the coast, baking and enjoying nature being a few examples of what we get up to. On the rare occasions I am child free, I enjoy playing football, golf, mountain climbing and weekends away in the Lake District with my partner.’

Mr Ed Cook

'My wife and I have lived in Osgodby since 1995. We have two grown up sons. I spent 37 years in teaching with the last 20 years before my retirement as Deputy Headteacher at Caistor Grammar School. In my role as a governor I hope that my experiences in both academic and pastoral educational roles will benefit Osgodby Primary School. I enjoy cycling, reading and spending time with the family.'


Mrs Denise Hornsey

‘I have worked for 23 years for Lincolnshire County Council.  For the first 9 years I worked as a School Business Manager at a small rural primary school and 14 years in Children's Services specialising in supporting children and families as well as working with schools on healthy schools and school food.  More recently, I was the senior Project Manager for holiday clubs for children and young people during the school holidays.

I was excited to be able to offer my experience and time to benefit the growth and management of Osgodby School which provides a safe and friendly environment for the children to thrive and be happy. I enjoy visiting the school and listening to the children and staff and learning more how the curriculum areas are developing and how the children are benefiting as a result.’


Mr Archie Dodds

'I have been one of the governors of Osgodby Primary School for over 10 years. During that time I have performed various roles and at present am the governor responsible for reporting to the Board of Governors on the teaching of History and Science. I have known the school for a very long time as my younger son was educated at the school and I have lived in the village for over 40 years. I enjoy being a governor as it enables me to make a contribution to the life of the village and the two subjects that I have some responsibility for are ones that I am particularly interested in. Although now retired for most of my career I worked locally as a veterinary surgeon. During that time I tried to help several children who wished to become vets and this has led to an interest in and recognition of the importance of education. My main interests now are wildlife and local history.'
