Cookham Rise Primary School

Gaynor Sprules

I have been a Governor at Cookham Rise for 19 years (Parent Governor 10 years, Chair 9 years).  I am married and have a daughter, Emma, who is now 24, and two Border Collie dogs who need lots of exercise.  My daughter really enjoyed her time at Cookham Rise and I hope that her positive experience is repeated by many.  I am also a teacher in the Primary sector and I have taught all age groups from Year 1 to Year 6 for 20 years in schools across Berkshire which has given me plenty of experience from a teacher’s point of view.   I am very proud to be a Governor at this school and celebrate it’s achievements.  It is a strong community with hard working staff and pupils and it is a pleasure to be Chair of Governors.
