Our Governors

We are pleased to have an active, supportive and challenging Governing Body representing a range of experience and expertise. The full Governing Body meets once per term. Additionally, there are two committees, which meet once per term in the weeks preceding the Full Governors’ meeting. Our governors play an important role in our school. They are involved in a regular and rigorous programme of evaluation and monitoring to ensure that they have a thorough understanding of our school’s work. They also link with classes and teachers to gain a child’s eye view of Greenfield. They maintain a presence in our school through their excellent attendance at meetings and events in our school community throughout the year.  None of our governors has declared an interest on the register of business interests.  The registers are available, should you wish to view them.


Mrs Emma Kilbride, Chair of Governors & Parent Governor (Appointed 02/02/2016, Current Term: 18/12/2019 to 17/12/2023) – “I currently have one child at Greenfield. I got involved in governance because I wanted to support my local community and have a positive impact on securing the best outcomes for all our children. I come from a compliance background and am responsible for Health and Safety, as well as being the Chair of Govenors.

Mrs Jan Robinson, Local Authority Governor (Appointed 01/04/2016, Current Term: 29/09/2020 to 28/09/2024) –  “Originally from Northampton, I have lived in Stourbridge for over 40 years ago. We have two adult children who both attended local schools/colleges until the age of 18; we now also have a grandchild. I retired from teaching in 2016, having spent the last 25 years of my career at one school. I am passionate about education, holding the belief that it is the key to a happy, successful life. I enjoy walking, travel, reading and rugby union. Until recently I was Chair of Governors.”

Mrs Tanya Evans, Vice-chair of Governors & Co-opted Governor (Appointed 01/11/07, Current Term: 01/09/2019 to 31/08/2023) – “I have two children at Greenfield.  Both went all the way through Greenfield and are now at Redhill.  I work with looked after children.

Mr Guy Carpenter, Parent Governor (Appointed 20/10/2022, Current Term: 20/10/2022 to 19/10/2026) – “As a Senior Leader in a multi academy trust and a teacher of maths, I have a wealth of experience that draws on 15 years of being in the education profession.  I have a firm belief that every child should have the opportunity to achieve their full potential. I can make an important contribution to the school governing body that could impact positively on the Greenfield Primary School’s inclusive community and culture.  As a parent of two boys, one who has recently moved from Greenfield to secondary education and one who is currently enjoying Year 3, I relish the opportunity to pay back the education, care and holistic develop that they have and are benefitting from.”
