Meet the Governors


  1. Governing bodies ‘are the strategic leaders of our schools and have a vital role to play in making sure every child gets the best possible education’. (The 2015 Governors’ Handbook, published by the Department for Education). For maintained schools this is reflected in the law, which states that the purpose of maintained school governing bodies is to ‘conduct the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement at the school’.
Our School Governors are obliged to divulge any pecuniary interests they may have in connection with the school. They are asked this as part of a standing item on every full Governors board meeting. To date. David Banks & Tracey Farwell pecuniary interests have been declared. Information from the office. 


Mrs Tracey Farwell

Chair of Governors / Training Liaison Governor / Leadership & Management Governor



I have been a Local Authority Governor at Muscliff since 2006 and Chair of Governors since 2008. I am proud to be part of a great team at the school. I currently work for a primary Trust in Poole and have previously worked for Local Authorities, Bournemouth and Poole College and at other schools both locally and in London. Being a Governor is a challenging but highly rewarding role. I am passionate about making a real difference for our young people and as well as supporting the ethos and values of the school.







Mrs Sarah Fenby

Head Teacher





Mr Lucian Andrews

Assistant Head Teacher


I am one of the curriculum governors.


It has been my pleasure to have been part of the Muscliff family for over 9 years and in being part of the many developments our school has experienced as we have grown over the years. Within the school I manage many hats: my main role is as class teacher in the busy and challenging environment of Year 6 (I have been a teacher for 15 years); I am the English subject leader and I am also one of the Assistant Headteachers, an SLT role which has allowed me to develop and have a positive impact on teaching and learning across the school. Furthermore, I am proud to say that my own children attend Muscliff Primary school and I am therefore both a parent as well as a member of the school's Senior Leadership Team.



Mr David Banks

Community Governor


My twins joined Reception at Muscliff school in September 2010. In their time at Muscliff I became involved with the MPA, working my way to the position of Chair, something I am justly proud of. Many of you will recognise me as the “man on the microphone” at School events.

At my last event at the school I was honoured to be asked if I would like a position of school Governor. I will fully support and challenge the schools staff to continue their great work of making our school the best it can be, a school we can all be proud of and most importantly help to ensure Muscliff School, teach and inspire all of our children to the best of their ability.


Mrs Joanna Cartwright

Parent Governor


My relationship with Muscliff started in Sept 2010 when my daughter started in reception, my son followed in 2013. My husband has been on the MPA, and I have supported and helped where I can.

I believe that academic success should run alongside the development of the child as a whole, be that through developing lifelong friendships, to partaking in activities they may not get a chance to at home, learning to work together and respecting other people’s needs and opinions.

I am looking forward to being able to represent us parents, to ensure our children get the best possible start on their education journey.


Alex Zaremba

Community Governor 


I am a community governor and volunteered because, as a father of 2 children of primary school age, I am interested in the education and well being of children and to help ensure Muscliff school continues to produce children who are well rounded in terms of both their education and as individuals.
