Governing Body

Derek Kuziw - Chair of Governors

 

"Born in Edinburgh, I joined the Royal Navy on leaving school at the age of 15.  I trained as a meteorologist and saw the world, including a 2 year deployment to Antarctica.  I served for 12 years in total. On leaving the Royal Navy I held numerous roles in Sales (selling all kinds of products, from gardening equipment to roofing hoists).  In 1989 I established Anders + Kern UK Limited, a leading distributor and integrator of audio visual solutions. The company is based in Mildenhall. I was Managing Director for over 25 years. I am married to Jane and we have 2 grown up daughters, all three attended St Mary’s as children".

Andrew Poolton - Vice Chair of Governors

"My name is Andrew Poolton and I was born in Birmingham in 1962. I left school aged 16 to complete a four year Mechanical Apprenticeship as a machine tool fitter. Currently, I am now a Business Development Manager for an advanced manufacturing technologies company based in Coventry, supplying fully automated assembly lines to the car industry.

I am married and have six grown up children, the youngest three attended St Mary's and still speak fondly of their time there, as does my wife Denise who was also a pupil at the school in the mid 70's. It was as my fourth child entered early years over seventeen years ago that I became a Parent Governor. I was keen to support the school and it's staff so they could provide the best of opportunities for every pupil to fulfil their potential".

"I have been a parent at St Mary's for a total of 15 years, my youngest is currently in KS2. I have a deep interest in the education of our children and believe that primary education gives them a great start to go on and achieve excellent things in life. I am a registered volunteer at the school, where I help run a parent lead Reading café and also help regularly with reading with the year 2 children. I am also the treasurer of the PTA. I like to keep busy and have a few volunteer roles outside of the school. I volunteer at King's Church toddler group and I'm a Leader in charge at 2nd Mildenhall Rainbows.

Dr Mark Woodroffe

 

"I grew up in West London and have lived in Cheshire, Essex and Suffolk. After completing my first degree I worked for Fisons Ltd and BT at Adastral Park, Martlesham. I then gained an MSc in Computing and a PhD in Artificial Intelligence, both from the University of Essex. These enabled me to become an academic, lecturing at three Universities, most recently for The Open University (OU) where I worked for 23 years. During my time with the OU I mainly wrote teaching material and line managed tutors who supported the students. I also gained an MBA and was made Head of School for Computing and Communications. I have a passion for teaching, in particular for providing the best possible educational experiences for everyone, whatever their background, needs and ability".
