Meet the Governors

  • Mrs Joelene Grassby

    Acting Chair / Parent Governor

    I was appointed as a parent-governor in January 2021. I have one child who attends the school and two other young children who will join in the future, which is why the success of the school is fundamental to me.

    I have lived in Hemingbrough all my life. It was attending the school that inspired me to become a Primary School Teacher myself. I am in my 10th year of Primary School Teaching, therefore have a clear understanding of education policy and curriculum.

    I have a real passion for outdoor and creative learning and it’s great to see the new outdoor resources the school has invested in to develop the outdoor learning for pupils at Hemingbrough Primary School.

  • Mrs Kelly Brackley

    Parent Governor

    I have been a parent governor since October 2021. I volunteered my services as a mum of two young children and one who attends the school. I wanted to give something back, whilst I could. I run a US immigration law business after spending many years in Chicago working as an immigration lawyer. I felt my professional skills and experience as a business owner could be valuable to the governing board.

    In my spare time I enjoy running and yoga, as well as spending time with my family and friends.

  • Mrs Jacqueline Gutierrez

    Parent Governor

    I have been a Hemingbrough school parent for just over 4 years, my son is lucky enough to be on his school journey here at Hemingbrough.

    As a finance manager with many years experience, I look forward to bringing another parent’s perspective to the Governing Body, I am keen to help make a positive difference and to be able to give something back to the school and community.
