Our Governors

Mrs Ann Tann - Chair

Safeguarding and Foundation Diocese

I have been a school governor for about 30 years, first as a teacher and deputy head, where I was the staff representative and then as headteacher of a local primary school. I have been associated with All Saints for about 15 years working with colleagues and, since my retirement, I feel privileged to continue that association as a governor. I am passionate about getting the best outcomes for the children in our care, both academically and pastorally to develop confident, happy and well rounded children.

Mrs Ann Gunn

Foundation Diocese

Having spent her career in Primary Education, Ann brings a huge wealth of experience to the Governing Body. She has been a governor in a variety of primary schools for 20 years, and retired from school headship in 2019, taking up the mantle of Local Authority Governor at All Saints in 2020.

She is keen to positively contribute to school life as we look ahead to future opportunities, and to support All Saints’ staff in continuing to provide the very best education for each child.

Ms Sara Cox 

Headteacher

I live locally with my family, plus Ralph the Labradoodle and Jasmine the cat.  During my spare time I enjoy horse riding, and sometimes falling off, my rather cheeky spotty horse called Oreo, along with sailing and scuba diving.  Professionally I have amassed twenty-three years of teaching in Early Years, Key Stage 1 and 2 in a wide range of schools from inner city London to small village infant church schools.  Prior to joining All Saints I was a successful senior leader in a Surrey Infant School for 8 years.  I am passionate about children’s education and have specialist interests in science, mathematics and special educational needs.  I wholeheartedly believe in the benefits of children being up ‘off their seats’, active and preferably outside. I am excited about the fantastic learning opportunities All Saints’ outdoor environment can offer.

Mrs Jayne Griffiths

Parent

My name is Jayne Griffiths.  My eldest son has just left All Saints and my other son is currently in yr 1.  I have a 2 year old daughter also.  I worked as a teacher for ten years before taking a break after having my daughter.  I am very exciited to be a part of the governing body at All Saints.

Mrs Jennifer Stearn

Parent

As a chartered accountant with experience in the corporate world, Jen brings financial & analytical skills to this role. Parent to four children, with her youngest child currently at All Saints, Jen is a strong supporter of the school and the local Tilford community. Jen has held PTA treasurer roles in two local schools as well as the treasurer role for two local village charities. She has also worked as a long standing children's liturgy helper and a catechist for First Holy Communion preparation in her local parish.

As parent governor, Jen is keen to forge strong links between the parent body and the school governors. She is committed to ensuring the children at All Saints have the opportunity to experience the best possible start in education, and she has a keen interest in the outdoor aspect of All Saints' experience.

Mr Michael Harvey-Browne

Michael is a father to three with his middle child loving her time in Kingfishers.   Michael is a Fellow with the CIOB/Chartered construction manager who has 19 years experience of working in schools, diocese and on ecclesiastical projects.  Michael is keen to help the school with their maintenance plans and construction projects, helping them deliver best value and prioritising of projects.
