Governors

My name is Ruth Westbrook and I was appointed as the new Chairperson of Holbrook Primary School’s Governing Body in April 2014.

I am retired now but have worked in education all my working life including 18 years as the headteacher of a Coventry school. Most recently, I have worked with a number of schools across The Midlands, helping them to improve. I have grown-up children and four grandchildren, all of whom maintain my keen interest in children’s learning. I live near the school, and am very pleased to be able to serve such a good school in my local community.

The Governing Body has re-constituted recently. It is now smaller, but remains fully committed to supporting Holbrook Primary School in ensuring that all our pupils achieve as well as they possibly can.
