Our Governing Body
Mrs T Dobrowolski
Community Governor Member
"I have been very fortunate to work as a teacher in Tany’s Dell school for almost ten years and during that time I have been the science coordinator, art coordinator and a Key Stage leader as well as a teacher for Year 4, 5 and 6. I retired last year after over thirty-six years of service and can honestly say that of the seven schools I have worked in, Tany’s Dell has been the best and the loveliest one. The staff are brilliant – supportive, hard-working, creative, fun and above all, caring. The children are delightful, responsive and polite - they make every day a pleasure to go to work for. There is a true family feel to Tany’s Dell and when I retired I wanted to continue to support the school. Retiring was very hard for me however, by being a curriculum governor, I still have a sense of belonging and when I pop into school – for whatever reason – I am welcomed like I had never left."

"I worked as the Midday Supervisor and a Learning Support Assistant at Tany’s Dell for 39 years until I retired in Summer 2019. My three children all attended the school from 1975 when my son started, so my association with the school began then. Since then, the school as gone through many changes but it has continued to be a wonderful place of learning for generations of children, always maintaining a caring, family atmosphere.
As an LSA, I worked for many years with Year 6 children, preparing them for SATs and for moving on to the next stage of their education. I enjoyed organising the Year 6 leavers celebration, always an exciting and fun evening.
I enjoyed every aspect of my working life at Tany’s Dell and was delighted to be asked to become a governor and to be able to continue my association with our brilliant school."
"I became a governor in 2015. My daughter attends the school, so I have a keen interest in supporting the staff and fellow governors, in achieving the best possible education and standards for the children. I have been a Police Officer for 17 years, and have worked in a variety of roles and specialist departments. I have gained a wide range of experience and skills throughout my career, which are of great benefit to me in contributing to the successful governance of the school. I currently sit on the Safeguarding and Behaviour Committee with the Chair of the Governing Body and Headteacher. I am also on the Finance and Premises committee."
Mr S Allen
"I have a very close association with the school which started 6 years ago, when my eldest son was in Reception. I would read with him in the morning in class before his day began and soon I was asked if I would like to become a reading mentor to assist not just my child but others too. I still do this today whenever I can, with my youngest son and his class and also with other classes. When the opportunity arose last year to become a governor, I knew it was the natural step up for me to support the whole school on a new level and I am enjoying the challenges that have so far been given to me."
