David J Stanley – DMS MCIM, LLG and NLG

I have some 31 years governance experience in Further Education, Children’s Centres and 6 Primary Schools – some concurrently. I am a member of the KGA (Kent Governors Association Executive Committee - 3.5 years), KCC’s School’s Funding Forum (3.5 years), LLG (KCC Local Lead Governor 11 years) and as an NLG (National Lead Governor 4 years). I have been the recipient of the Kent Governor of the Year, and finalist in the annual National Teacher of the Year Awards of which I am very proud.

I have vast experience of taking schools in difficult situations to Good Ofsted gradings and have been recognised for this work by Ofsted.

As an LLG for 11 years and an NLG for 4 years, I have supported other schools beyond my own – e.g. giving support to new chairs – one in the one year run up to a successful Ofsted (from RI to Good). I am contracted to run bespoke training courses and other courses for KCC Governor Services and KCC’s School Personnel Services/School Improvement Team.

I was also invited to be engaged in the new Kent Leadership Strategy formation/consultations and spoke about it at a KGA Assembly.

As an active member of the successful Coastal Alliance of 17 schools in East Kent, I also helped establish and was a founding signatory for it to become a Co-operative Trust in 2016. My aim is to achieve the best possible learning experience for all children and I work tirelessly towards achieving this aim.

Alan Norley, IEB Vice Chair

I have worked extensively in teacher education and development, quality assurance/inspection, education leadership development, strategic planning and capacity building of educational establishments and systems in the UK and over 26 countries for over 40 years. I was appointed as a National Leader of Governance in January 2013 and also work with Kent Local Authority as a Local Leader of Governance and governor trainer, helping to support and develop governors and school leaders.

I run my own education consultancy company working with Local Authorities and schools locally and with Governments and Development Agencies abroad. In addition to being a governor at Parkside, I am involved in the governance of 5 primary schools, and a Special School.

I am a Director and Chair of Trustees of CARE Foundation Trust of 10 primary schools and Director of Kent Special Education Needs Trust. I manage to keep my feet on the ground by being grandfather to eight lively granddaughters and one grandson, playing drums in a 60-70s rock band, taking long rambles with a cocker spaniel and messing about with model and heritage railways.

Peter Troke, IEB Member

I am a microbiologist who retired from working at Pfizer 13 years ago and I have lived in Thanet for over 30 years. During all of this time I have been a governor or Chair of Governors at various primary and secondary schools in East Kent. I have a long standing interest in education at all levels and in helping local pupils to maximise their educational opportunities and their future career prospects. I also assist the local authority in hearing appeals for admission to or exclusion from school as well as helping schools who may be experiencing difficulties.

Anne Ryback, IEB Member

I have been a Governor at an Infant school in Sittingbourne since 2009, and I am currently Chair of Governors at this school and also a Primary school in Milton Regis. I am a retired secondary school teacher who earlier in my life trained as a biochemist and worked locally for a number of years before having my children and retraining as a teacher. I have an interest in SEND and I believe my role is to support the school in getting the best education possible for all the children at Parkside.

Judy Doherty, IEB Member

My interest in primary education developed initially because of my working life. As a professional in children’s services, I recognised the important role of education alongside the family in helping children develop and grow.

When I became a parent myself, I was enormously grateful for the close, caring and stimulating environment provided by our local Primary School. I have been involved in school governance for eight years during which time I was Chair of Governors at an outstanding Primary School in Folkestone and a member of an Interim Executive Board at another Kent Primary.

I also served as a member of the Kent Governors’ Association representing Folkestone, Hythe and the Romney Marsh. My particular areas of interest are Early Years education, Safeguarding and continuing professional development for teachers and teaching assistants. I live in Folkestone and, since retiring from work, have enjoyed taking on new projects including local history and volunteering for local projects for homeless people.
