Clerk to the Governors
I am currently the Chair of Governors at Wiggonby School. I enjoy being a Governor as it helps me to retain my interest in education. I like spending time with my grandchildren, gardening, cooking and reading.
I am a farmer working on our family farm. After leaving Wiggonby Schooll, I attended Nelson Thomlinson School. I then attended Newton Rigg College for 5 years and gained a HND in Dairy Farm Management. Foot & Mouth interrupted my higher education, but I did return to complete my exams. I had a happy time at Wiggonby School and I received excellent support in helping me cope with dyslexia. My children now attend the school and I decided to become a governor to give something back to the school. Wiggonby School helped make me the person I am today.
I am proud to be the Headteacher of this fantastic school. Since joining the school in 2018, we have modernised our facilities and resources, creating an environment in which every child and member of staff can flourish. I am the Designated Safeguarding Lead and Health & Safety Officer. Being a small school, I am fortuante to also have a teaching commitment. I am passionate about the curriculum and providing the best opportunities for all of our children and that’s why we’re constantly striving to move our curriculum on. Through our whole-school vision of 'With Grace and Love, We Dream & Achieve', our Governing Body and school team will ensure that every child receives the best education.
Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family, coaching both my boys' football teams and going on holidays.
Rev. Tudor Boddam-Whetham
I am a teacher and parent at Wiggonby. I was born and raised in Cumbria, but moved away to attend University, and taught at schools in Cambridgeshire and Warwickshire before moving back to Cumbria with my husband and children in 2016. My strengths are in Science and English, although I am also very enthusiastic about teaching and learning in History, Geography, Art and French. Bringing over 20 years of teaching experience in Key Stages 1 and 2, I am able to bring an in-depth knowledge of the curriculum to the Governing Body. I am keen to support the development of the school and to give every child the knowledge, skills and love of learning that they need at secondary school and beyond. My hobbies include family walks, cooking and art.
I am a mum of two and I have been a governor at Wiggonby School since Autumn 2021. I became involved with the governing body as I am passionate about supporting the school to deliver excellent education and pastoral care and for the school and all pupils to thrive.
