I am Sue Davey and I have been a governor for several years . I have two sons who are at BSCS in years 7 and 10, having both spent 7 wonderful years at Wheatfield. I am a primary school teacher and I now work for the South Gloucestershire Music Hub. My job involves visiting many schools in the authority and helping to deliver an exciting music curriculum.

I am very proud to be a governor at Wheatfield.

.My name is John Morris and Chair of Governors since March 2018. I have two children at Wheatfield. I am a co-opted governor. I am a Community Spaces Officer for South Gloucestershire Council  and my skills include project and contract management,  and outdoor environment education and natural play. On the governing body I am responsible for Outdoor Play and Learning, Health and Safety and am the School Travel Plan co-ordinator. I have been a governor for many years and it’s a delight to visit the school and witness the excellent school learning environment. The maturing grounds, allotment and the new Wild Wood are real assets to the school. I want to see the school regain its status as a ‘good school’, which it so deserves. I would like to see more parental involvement via the Friends Group. I’d also like to see more pupils walking or cycling to school and less cars parking in the loop and on the zig zag lines! 

My name is Becky Penny. I am a parent governor with three boys at Wheatfield. I am a Human Resources Operations Manager and my skills include team work, performance management and recruitment. I am particularly interested in Special Needs. I think Wheatfield is a fantastic school and I enjoy being part of the team who work to make it an even better learning environment for my children and future children coming to the school. With the staff and governors my aim is for Wheatfield to be judged 'outstanding'!


My name is Naomi Snedker and I am a parent governor. I am chair of the Curriculum and Achievement Sub Committee and  am the governor responsible for safeguarding. I have  a strong desire to support the children and enhance their learning experiences in a happy environment. I hope to build on this as part of the governing body. As a parent of children at the school I have a vested interest in helping the school on its journey to achieve an outstanding OFSTED judgement.

I am Steve Holmes, the school's Local Authority governor.


My name is Cameron Davis-Jones. I am a co opted governor but also a parent at the school.  I am a Business Support Manager with 25 years experience within the Financial Services Industry which has included the management if various investment teams. Amongst the skills I bring to the Governing Body are Performance Management and the application of HR policies, management and delivery of change, recruitment support, design and implementation skills including continuous improvement and risk and compliance assessment.  All of these are relevant to my membership of the Staffing and Resources Sub Committee. I have enjoyed being able to use my skills to support the creation of a 5 year IT strategy, completion of governor monitoring activities and the successful recruitment of a new head teacher. Wheatfield has an amazing focus on all aspects of a child’s development. With clear focus, dedication and determination the school has moved forward and I want to help support the continued future success by working with the other governors, staff, parents and children to make Wheatfield a truly outstanding and inspirational place to be. 

I am Chloe Mitchell. I am a co-opted governor but also a parent of 2 children at the school.

I am able to draw upon this experience in helping to support the Staffing and Resources sub committee. I hope that my skills will be of use in  helping to manage budgets within the school and tackle any future spending cuts appropriately. I think Wheatfield is a great place for kids to learn and in my experience they thoroughly enjoy it. I would like to see this continue and help make this important time in the children's lives even more valuable, allowing them to reach their full potential as well as maintaining the current 'family' culture.


My name is Emma Pople. I have one child at Wheatfield. I have had experience of senior leadership roles on the steering group of a major retailer where my role focused on strategic direction, decision making and evaluation.
