The Nominees


Mrs Caroline Jones

7 Sycamore Close, Rainworth.

Parent of: Alice and Isobelle

As parent governor I’d be uniquely placed to champion the views of parents / carers to help in the continuing improvement of the school. With 20 years teaching experience in educational settings I am passionate about teaching, learning and curriculum innovation. As an Art Consultant I deliver workshops and work with schools to improve their learning environments. I would relish the role as parent governor as our family has an invested interest in the school becoming the best version of itself.


Mrs Claire Noble

Parent of: Olivia and Isabelle

Hi my name is Claire, I have 2 children in school Olivia (yr10) & Isabelle (yr7). I am passionate about the education and well-being of pupils. My professional role involves training Primary and Secondary teachers, as well as observing and coaching teachers in Further Education, which I feel puts me in an ideal position to support and challenge points presented to the board. I am confident to be ‘our voice as parents’ when considering decisions that affect our children and us.


Dr Caroline Butler

I attended this school, as did my older son Alex and now my younger son James has started in Year 7. I am keen to be a parent governor as I believe I have the skills and knowledge to be a spokesperson for all parents. I was a parent governor at Blidworth Oaks for 7 years and work within the apprenticeship team at West Notts College. I am committed to ensuring the best outcomes for all our children. Please choose me!
