    Interim Chair

    I am pleased to be interim Chair of Governors at Fowey Primary school. My parents lived in Fowey for 18 years so I know how important the school is to the community. I believe that all children should be able to have the advantage of a wide ranging excellent education, not only in terms of academic learning but also the wider school experience, just as the Head and all the other teachers at Fowey do.

    I live near St Austell and have 2 children who went to schools that are part of CELT. They loved their time there and so I decided that becoming a governor was a good way to help support the school in continuing the great work they do.

    I started off as a parent governor but have been a Board Appointed governor now for several years. In my day job I work part time as a family lawyer which can be helpful for parts of my governor role - sometimes I find it works the other way around too!

  • Chris Price

    Board Appointed Governor

    My name is Chris Price and I live in Fowey with my wife, Dina. My day job is as a chartered accountant, working for myself. I became a governor because I love the town and wanted to get more involved in the community. Fowey Primary School is such a wonderful school and I am delighted to be able to play a part in its continuing success. I have also been a part of the strategic leadership board for our multi-academy trust.

    Term of office ends 27/04/2023

  • Mr Tony Freshwater

    Community Governor

    My name is Tony Freshwater and as a family we moved to Fowey in January 2017.

    I am retired after approximately fifty years in engineering, of which twenty years were working in West Africa.

    I have previously served as a governor in a Northampton school and am keen to serve at Fowey Primary as a Community Governor. With my background in engineering I am serving as a Health and Safety representative.

  • Sarah Morrin

    Parent Governor

    My name is Sarah Morrin and I am a Parent/Carer Appointed Governor of Fowey Primary School. Professionally, I am an engineer and a chartered accountant who works as an advisor to large companies and public sector bodies. Our two children joined the school in 2019 partway through their education when we returned to Cornwall after living overseas. My own primary, secondary and tertiary education was in Cornwall, and I became a governor because I want to make a contribution to the school system and would like to everyone to have the opportunity to be remarkable and dream big from a young age.
