  • Two Foundation Governors – Heather Schofield & Izzy Dunn (also a parent)

What do our Local Governors do?

The Governing Body is here to help the school provide the best possible education for our pupils by:

  • Thinking and working strategically to help to raise standards
  • Monitoring and evaluating progress towards the school’s priorities and targets
  • Supporting the Executive Headteacher, Head of School and staff as well as challenging their expectations
  • Accounting to all stakeholders for the school’s overall performance and for the decisions they have made.

There are three main areas in the role of the school governors:

  1. To take a largely strategic role in the running of the school
  2. To act as a critical friend to the school
  3. To ensure accountability of the governing body to the parents and of the Executive Headteacher/Head of School  to the governing body.

Anne Camm

Chair of Governors

I have been in education for as long as I can remember!  I have taught in co-ed and single sex schools both in the maintained and private sector.  For the last 10 years of my career, I was a Headteacher so I am only too aware of the issues schools today. I retired in 2017 and trained as a Lead Inspector (having been a team inspector for a long time previously). I very much enjoy the inspecting and keeping up to date with everything, although not every school is pleased to see inspectors!  I live in Sheffield and have two grown up daughters to keep me under control!



Heather SchofieldHeather

Foundation Governor 
I am a foundation governor nominated by the PCC at All Saints Church. I have a child who attended the school and also attend the church. I work in an educational setting as a Learning Mentor in a youth inclusion centre in Sheffield. I am supportive of the ethos of the school, providing the children with the best possible environment for them to develop and grow.



Chris Walch

Parent Governor  & Vice Chair of Governors

I became Parent governor in Nov 2018 to use my skills and experiences to ensure the school’s priorities and targets are set to achieve the best possible education for our children.  I’m currently a Technical Director for a global IT services provider with over 10 years’ experience in Information and Communications Technology (ICT). My son Finley is in Y3 with his brother Alex hopefully joining the TASS family in 2021. I am an enthusiastic parent who will give maximum effort to the privileged role of parent governor.  I’m here to speak out for  what is most important – our children.


Izzy Dunn

Foundation Governor

As a Foundation Governor, I became involved in the governing body through my involvement at Totley All Saints Church.  Professionally, I have a strong interest in education, and have taught History for over 10 years at a secondary school in Derbyshire. I passionately believe in the importance of inspiring a love of learning to last a lifetime.  Furthermore, as a parent of a pupil at the school, I have witnessed the nurturing environment created at TASS and the dedication of the wonderful teaching and support staff. I am proud to be able to support the work of the school in my role as a governor.  As a working mum of young children, spare time is a rare luxury. Given the chance, I love to get my sewing machine out or curl up with a good book!


Mo Andrews

Executive Headteacher & Governor




Trudi Brown

Head of School & Governor

I am the Head of School at Totley All Saints. I started here as Deputy Head teacher & Year 6 teacher in 2014 & am an associate member of the Governing body.  I came into teaching as a second career as, after supporting my own children & their school, I began to feel that education was where I really wanted to be. I have been a lifelong learner taking an Open University degree when my children were small and, 10 years ago, taking up playing a brass instrument – highly recommend!  Because my father was a career serviceman, I moved school frequently so I know how important it is for a child to feel welcome, included & cared for at school.  Outside of school I play in a Brass Band & enjoy walking, embroidery & visiting my two grown up sons & their lovely partners.


Class Governors

Class Governors meet with their allocated classes on a regular basis in order to see how the children are getting on as well as monitor teaching & learning. This is then fed back to the whole Governing Body at the next meeting. As well as providing insight into practice & allowing governors to see the outworking of their participation in school, these are also beneficial because they allow our children to build relationships with  governors, understand a little about adult responsibility & service to others as well as aspire to serve their communities in the future.



Governors Meetings Held in the School Day

As well as coming in to school to see their classes, the whole Governing Body meets at least once during the year within the actual school day. This is a great time to meet with different groups of children & to allow pupils an opportunity to show off about all of the amazing things that they have been up to – as well as for governors to see the outworking of their hard work & commitment to the school.

These are photographs of when our school governors spent time with their assigned classes & met with members of the School Council, the Merit Captains & Eco-Saints.
