Meet the Governors
Mrs Gemma Webb (Parent Governor)
Peter Holden (Foundation Governor)
I have been a PCC Governor since my children were at John Donne and now my grandchildren are also there. I am passionate about the role of the school within the local community. My long career with the RSPB involved youth and adult education, volunteering and public relations, and there are many transferable skills I can bring to the School's Governing Board. I am also Vice-chair of Blunham Parish Council.
Revd Graham Buckle (Foundation Ex-Officio)
Adam Prosho (Parent Governor)
In my day job as Global Training Director for the Integrated Laboratory Solutions division at CBRE, I am consistently seeking new and innovative ways to engage our global workforce in their own Learning & Development. Having two children at John Donne, I see this as an amazing opportunity to bring in ideas & learnings from industry into their school and ensure all pupils are best equipped for the workplace of the future!
Natalie Creed (Foundation Governor)
Anita Whitehurst (Executive Headteacher)
I am part of the Governing Board in my role as Headteacher. I became Executive Headteacher in July 2022 which means I lead both John Donne and St Swithun's Church of England VC Primary School in Sandy. I have been involved in education for the last 22 years and have been a Headteacher for 11 years. I am looking forward to working with everyone at John Donne and to ensure the school becomes an even greater place to learn!
Eddie Kirk (Head of School)
I joined John Donne Primary School in September 2022, while also performing a similar role at St Swithun’s Church of England Primary School. I have been involved in classroom teaching for almost 20 years and I have also worked in a variety of school advisory and improvement roles, supporting schools and teachers on behalf of Kent and Central Bedfordshire local authorities, the Diocese of St Alban’s and as part of Redborne Teaching Partnership.
