Meet the Governors
Who are our governors?
Judie Anderson - Chair of Governors
I have been a governor at Shardlow Primary School for over 10 years, Chair of Governors for the past 7 years and am currently a Director of Willows Academy Trust. I have also been a magistrate since 1999 sitting in both adult and youth courts as a bench chair.
My background is in accountancy, helping my husband in his practice and , for many years running my own business completing VAT returns for clients. I am now retired which means that I can give as much time as is required to the school.
Tiffnie Harris - Vice Chair of Governors
I have lived in Shardlow for 42 years, married to a Farmer and partner in the business. I trained as a Home Economics Teacher, taught in Buxton until I got married. My three children attended Shardlow School and now I have 3 Grandchildren who also attend, making them the third generation to attend the school. I obtained an Open University degree in Social Studies in the 1980s. I have been a Parish Councillor for over 30 years serving 2 terms as Chair. I am very much involved with Derbyshire Federation of WIs, having previously been its Chair for 3 years and have served on an NFWI sub-committee for 3 years. Currently I teach twice a month; Preservation classes for adults and give cookery demonstrations to voluntary groups throughout Derbyshire.
The skills and attributes I bring to the Governors include a knowledge of the education system; a wide range of knowledge of the village and the school’s stakeholders; experience of committees and a love of learning.
Amanda Gouy de Muyncke
I am a mum with 2 children currently at Shardlow Primary School and another one who is now at secondary school.
I took on the role of parent governor as I love the school, the Shardlow spirit is second to none and I’m hoping to put some of my skills to good use to support the school.
I have an international business background in business development and large account management. For the past 10 years I have been running our property lettings and management business with my husband. So with all that under my belt, I have a wide variety of skills from commercial to operational to HR, as well as speaking French and Italian.
