Our Governors


Our current Governors are:


Adam Johnston

Chair of Governors (Co-opted)

Scartho Infants' School and Nursery brings back great memories and holds a special place in my heart. The place I started my education journey and now as a Dad (43yrs! that went quick) my daughter Pollyanna (7yrs) continues hers. Being Grimsby born, I am proud to work and live here and it gives me a real sense of pride to be able to give back to the area that has given to me over the years. I have been on the governing body since Sept 2020 and I moved into the Chair position in Nov 2021. I’m thankful for the opportunity here at the school and it continues to be a pleasure to learn and work alongside the Scartho School Family to support and develop the school. The Governors here are a passionate and committed group wanting to make a difference, to the school, staff and our pupils, to ensure all of our children get the best start in life and learning opportunities that they can take with them and use through their education journey and lives.  

Emily Powell

Vice Chair of Governors (Co-opted)

I am proud and grateful of the opportunity to be a part of the Scartho Infants’ School and Nursery family as a governor. I joined in June 2022 and I am really happy to be able to support the school’s wonderful Head Teacher and brilliant staff who all do a fantastic job in enabling your children to play, learn and grow together and reach their full potential. I am passionate about education, being a local Head Teacher myself, and a Mum to my four-year-old daughter, who will attend Scartho Infants’ when she reaches school age. I grew up in Waltham and moved to Scartho 15 years ago so ensuring that our local school continues to thrive and develop, whilst maintaining the lovely family feel that is so evident when you enter the school, is something I am committed to for many years to come.

Glyn Rushton

Head Teacher (Ex-Officio)

It is a privilege to lead the Scartho Family as Head Teacher of our wonderful Scartho Infants’ School and Nursery. I am a father of two children who are still continuing their educational journey at University.

I qualified as a teacher in 1995 and have been teaching ever since. I have worked in a pure Nursery School, Infant and Nursery School and Primary School. I was Deputy Head Teacher for thirteen years before taking on my first Headship of a two form entry Primary School which grew to a three form entry Primary School. Before arriving here at Scartho Infants’ School and Nursery I was Principal at a large four form Primary School with both a two year old and Nursery provision, having just under 1000 pupils on roll.

I have previously been on Governing Bodies in my role as a teacher, senior leader and as a Parent Governor at my own children’s school, undertaking a period as the Chair of Governors. I also currently sit on a local Primary School Governing Body within North East Lincolnshire as a Co-opted Governor.

I am committed to ensuring that the children here and in our wider school communities are getting the very best opportunities to support them for life!

If you have any questions, queries or comments please do come and speak with me, I am always happy to listen and work in partnership with our families.

Rebecca Bacon

Co-opted Governor

Hello! I am pleased to say hello to the Scartho Infants' School and Nursery community as a new governor, having joined the team in November 2022. By way of background to me, I was born and grew up in Grimsby, lived away for a decade (in Leeds, London and Hong Kong) then returned to live in Scartho in the summer of 2021. I have a 2 year old daughter and am a corporate solicitor. I am looking forward to getting to know the school community and to work with the passionate board of governors to help the school, and the pupils, thrive and achieve their full potential.  


Vacancy Co-opted Governor

Nichola Fawn

Local Authority Governor

The Scartho community has been a huge part of my life for a long time as I have taught at our neighbouring school, Scartho Junior Academy, for the past 13 years. Over this time, I have had the privilege to be able to meet, and work with, so many local families and I relish the chance to extend those relationships with colleagues, and families, at Scartho Infants School too. As SENCo, at SJA, I am fiercely passionate about providing opportunities for all children and I see that same passion in the team at Scartho Infants. Looking forward, I am excited about the ever-evolving journey the Scartho Infants team are on and I look forward to being able to play a part in that so that the children, and parents, of the school feel joy, pride and have confidence to achieve all they set their minds to.


Abigail Gibbon

Staff Governor

Mark Taylor

Parent Governor

Hello, I’m Mark and I am delighted to be a Parent Governor here at Scartho Infants School. Originally from Yorkshire, I moved to Grimsby with my family seven years ago and four of my children have attended or are currently attending the school.

I currently work in education as the Commercial and Development Director at the Lincoln College Group but the majority of my work experience has been in a variety of retail and customer service organisations such as Lloyds Bank, Aldi, Tesco and Reed.

I know how important it is that we provide the best possible foundations for our children and am passionate about ensuring that the great work that is already underway at Scartho Infants School continues and is built upon even further, so that our children receive the best possible start.

I drop off and pick up the children a couple of times per week so if you see me and would like to chat about anything, please say hello!

Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.

Our Governing Body


The Governing Body together with the Head Teacher, lead the school, by setting the vision and establishing the right culture to ensure your child has the best possible opportunities to learn and develop as a young person.

Our Governing Body should comprise of 8 elected people plus the Head Teacher, a total of 9.  Governors are elected to represent the diversity of the community in order to bring a range of skills to effectively support the school. Each Governor, except the Head Teacher, is elected for a 4 year term of office.

The Full Governing Body meets at least once every two terms, or more frequently if required.  Agendas include School, Governor and Local Authority initiated items. In addition to the Full Governing Body meetings, the Resources and Standards and Curriculum sub-committees also meet at least termly.  The Standards and Curriculum Committee monitors and reviews the teaching, learning and assessment standards within school. The Resources Committee meets to approve and oversee expenditure to include reviewing the staffing structure. Other committees are convened as required e.g. Appeals, Complaints and Pupil Discipline. A named Governor is responsible for overseeing Premises, Health and Safety and liaises with the Head Teacher and Office Manager to carry out these duties. This is reported back to the Full Governing Body on a bi-termly basis.


Our Governors are an active and committed group who support and challenge the Senior Leadership Team in order to ensure the continuous improvement of the school.
