Governor Profiles

Heidi Austin

I have two children who are pupils at Ranelagh School, one in key stage 1, 1 in key stage 2. I have been a parent governor since 2015. As a parent I value the inclusivity and the feel of community at Ranelagh, I love that our children learn and achieve in all areas of their development and the opportunities that they are offered in music, art and sports that build their skills, their confidence and their abilities to work alongside each other, and the impact this has on their learning in their core curriculum subjects. I am proud that our children feel happy and safe and want to come to school. My primary interest as a Governor, alongside our strategic responsibilities, is the development of learning and opportunities for disadvantaged children. At home I love to read, go to the cinema and spend time with friends and family.

Ann Boxhall 

I am a former teacher at Ranelagh Primary School; now retired.  As well as being a governor at Ranelagh Primary School, I sit on the Governing Body of Morland C of E Prmary School (also in Ipswich). I have a number of interests including: gardening, reading, travel, nature conservation, flower arranging, charitable and voluntary work.  I am also a lay minister at an Ipswich church; secretary of the Ipswich Flower Club and a trustee of the Blue Coat Charitable Trust.

Faye Turner 

I have worked at Ranelagh since 2000 and been staff governor since 2012. I have worked in, and led, the Early Years Foundation Stage throughout my years at Ranelagh, but in becoming a governor and member of the Senior Leadership Team, I feel I have been able to develop more of a strategic view of the whole school priorities and contribute more fully to these. Ranelagh is a unique school to work in and it is very rewarding. Our vision and values are extremely important to me as I believe it is essential that we foster a love of learning in the youngsters that we work with every day; supporting them and their families through the challenges they may face from time to time.  In my spare time I enjoy walking in the Suffolk countryside and coastline and going to see musicals both locally and in the West end.
