Welcome to our new Governors

New Foundation Governor: Sarah Tunstill

Sarah is pleased to take up the position of Foundation Governor and is looking forward to getting involved at her first meeting in October. Sarah and husband Simon have two daughters, both at Checkendon School - Sophia in Year 2 and Jessie recently started in Reception. She lives locally, and works as a part-time GP in Henley. When not working, Sarah enjoys exploring the local area with her family and their Border Terrier, Lottie. If the weather's good, it's possible you might even find her out running.

New Parent Governor: Paul Meakin

Paul has a long association with Checkendon school having been involved with the PE and after school sports club on and off since 2004.  He runs a sports coaching company that has been nominated and won a number of awards over the past five years and currently delivers PE lessons at Checkendon school on Monday afternoons and also runs an after school club.  Paul’s children, Adam and Amie, are both in Panda class and enjoy being at school. In his role as governor, Paul is looking forward to helping the school as it endeavours to provide pupils with the best possible education and learning experience as well as to raise standards and strive for success.  

A warm welcome to Paul and Sarah.
