Our Governing Body

Mrs R Joyce
Chair of the Governing Body
I have a long association with Tany’s Dell, where I regularly delivered enrichment activities in my role as Gifted & Talented Co-ordinanator for Burnt Mill and its feeder primaries. I became a governor in 2006. I have been Chair of Governors for over 10 years and have been involved in many interesting developments in that time. These include headteacher appointments, the move to two-form entry and regaining the use of the West Wing, and becoming part of Templefields Multi-Academy Trust, with Fawbert & Barnard’s and Harlowbury. I also serve as a Trustee of this body. I am very proud to be associated with both.

Mrs T Dobrowolski

Co-opted Governoe

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 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.



Mr S Allen

Co-opted Governor

I have a very close association with this wonderful school. Both my boys came here and are now thriving in their secondary education due to the excellent start they had here.  When my eldest son was in Reception, I would go in and read with him in the morning before class. I continued this and was asked if I would like to become a reading mentor. I was able to read with many children which I know they enjoyed and I in-turn enjoyed watching their progress. I continued this for many years and even recruited more parents to become reading mentors. 
In 2017 a vacancy came up on the board of governors which I applied for as I felt I had more to give and was accepted. I have enjoyed many challenges over the years; even the stressful OFSTED inspection.  My boys have now left the school and I was asked to stay on as a co-opted governor and I'm looking forward to many more years doing my best for this wonderful school and all its staff and children.    



Miss F Middleton

Associate member


I joined Tany’s Dell as its new Deputy Head in September 2001. Over twenty years later, I am still here! Tany’s Dell is just the best place to come and work. The sense of family, friendship and support here is second to none. We all reach for the stars – children and staff – every day and I love being a part of that. I see my role as ensuring that Tany’s Dell continues to work its magic on all of our children and that they are given every opportunity to try their very best, celebrate their achievements, shine their talents and be proud of themselves.


Mrs K Beck

Parent Governor

Hello! My name is Katerina and my association with Tany's Dell began when my eldest daughter started in Reception 9 years ago. Since then, my second child has journeyed onto year 7 this year and my middle child (Year 4) still attends this wonderful school.  So, when a position arose for Parent Governor in 2021, I knew I wanted to apply. 

I hope to give something back to this brilliant school where my children have all been so happy. We had a surprise fourth child arrive last December, so my journey with Tany's Dell will long continue! I have always had a strong passion for education and have always loved working with children and young people. I have an educational background working in 4 different primary schools, Stagecoach Drama and for Enfield Council as a Senior Playleader delivering educational, fun and exciting play schemes and summer camps whilst studying for my degree in Education Studies and Childhood Studies. I believe in the best possible education for all our children, for all staff to be recognized for their commitment, love and dedication, and the importance of a safe and happy environment where our children can be nurtured, learn and grow. I feel Tany's Dell offers this and always thrives to deliver the highest possible standards for their pupils, staff and whole school community. One of the many wonderful qualities Tany's Dell has to offer is a family ethos. This is so important to have in any school, where it's pupils, parents and staff feel happy, safe and secure. Where their education, care and safety are of the utmost importance. In my new role I want to help make a difference to our brilliant school, be a supportive voice for parents and continue to raise our school to become an outstanding provision for all our children.

In my spare time I love to run. I believe in a healthy mindset and mental wellbeing. I have a positive approach to life and would say I have lots of energy, am fun, loving and caring. I love dancing, baking, spending time with my family and friends, helping people and generally love to make sure everyone is happy and well supported.

I am looking forward to the challenges ahead of me and supporting the school community, staff and my fellow governors, in achieving a rich education and standards for all our children.
