Mr J Lynes - Chair - Parent Governor 1

Mr J Lynes - Chair - Parent Governor

I am an embedded software engineer who designs antenna controllers to acquire and track geosynchronous satellites. Although born in March, having only spent the first 10 days of my life here, I returned to settle down here with my family in 2009. I have three children who attend All Saints. Elected as a Parent Governor in 2011, and having the role of Chair since September 2012, I am keen to ensure that our children thrive both academically and spiritually.


Mrs A Caulkett - Governor

I am a serving Governor at All Saints Academy.  I have been on the board for 20 years becoming a Parent Governor when the school opened.   I am currently Chair of the Extended Schools Committee which is a popular extension of the school, we also encompass Ace Base our after school provision.  I am also a member of the Audit and Scrutiny Committee.


I have 2 grown up daughters who both attended All Saints on opening and continued their education at St John Fisher and Kings School.  We have lived in March for 22 years having moved from Suffolk.  I attend St Johns Church.  I have always been interested in education and believe that it is the foundation for which children develop their skills to assist them in their adult life.

Mrs J Westwood - Staff Support Representative

I am the support staff Governor for the school representing all non-teaching staff.  I began my journey with All Saints in 1994 when the school first opened with a small number of staff and 19 children in the Reception class.  Mrs Betts, the Headmistress at the time wanted an experienced early years practitioner with a nursery nursing (NNEB) qualification to work alongside the teacher in the care and education of the children.  Since then I have had the pleasure of working with several Reception teachers and 100s of children.


Mr M Staton - Parent Governor

I have a background in sports coaching, playwork and early years education and currently work for the County Council managing the delivery of road safety education and training.  I grew up in North London, but moved to Cambridgeshire in 2004 and more recently to March in 2013.  I have 4 children, with 2 currently attending All Saints and 1 child in All Saints Pre-School.


Elected as a Parent Governor in 2015, I think it is really important that our children enjoy their learning experiences, are rewarded for their hard work regardless of academic ability and that developing a positive relationship with school at primary age is important for them to do well in secondary school and beyond.

Mrs S Burgess - Foundation Governor

I have been a Dental Nurse Assessor for nearly 10 years and a qualified Dental Nurse for 27 years.  I teach trainee Dental Nurses in the classroom and assess their ability to assist a dentist in surgery.  I enjoy an active role with 4th March Brownies and attend Our Lady of Good Counsel and St Peter RC Church.


We have 3 children who attended All Saints from 1994-2008, who all went on to attend St John Fisher.  I was elected a Foundation Governor in March 2014 and given the role of Safeguarding Governor in September 2015.

Mr C Bester - Parent Governor

I run my own Fresh Produce business, based in March.  Born and bred in the area - I have a son in Reception who is thriving at All Saints and hopefully in my role as Parent Governor I can ensure that many more children rise through the ranks at our fantastic school.

Rev Andrew Smith - Foundation Governor

I have been Team Rector of the four March Church of England Churches (St Peter, St Mary's, St John's and St Wendreda's) since April 2015 after some 25 years as a Vicar in the West Midlands.  During that time, and before, I have been Governor of some 15 schools, (primary, first, middle and special) often as Chair, and therefore done mergers, got three schools out of special measures and taken another to outstanding.  Our three children were educated entirely in the state sector and now our four grandchildren are starting out in the same way.  All through my involvement with schools my priorities have been to provide balanced and effective education, to help staff to make good decisions and to develop their talents, to value parents, with schools at the heart of community, with a child centred education for all children.  All children deserve us to do our very best.

Mr D Hughes - Parent Governor

I am a local authority officer dealing with Waste, Recycling and Sustainability in a neighbouring district.  I was born and raised in Cambridge but moved to March in 2006, I have two children who attend All Saints.  I joined as a Parent Governor in 2016 and I am link Governor for English and Geography.

Danuta Krawczyk- Parent Governor

I was born and raised in the city of Krakow, Poland.  I moved to the UK in 2004 and lived in London for several years before moving to March in 2012.  I have two children, with one currently attending Reception class at All Saints.

With my Polish background and a significant amount of experience as a Civil Servant, working with a diverse range of people of all ages and ethnic backgrounds, I feel that I can contribute to the school and the education of all our children.
