Meet the Governors
Mrs Sarah Langley
Chair of Governors
I have been a resident of Windsor for the last 15 years and currently have 2 daughters attending Clewer Green First School. My career has been spent in the Pharmaceutical Industry where I have progressed through roles in sales and training and, for the last 16 years, in marketing. I hold a BSc in Pharmacology and a CIM Diploma in Marketing. Outside of work I enjoy yoga, walking, reading and spending time with my husband and vivacious girls!
Mrs Karon Branch
After having completed a BSc Honours degree in Geography at Royal Holloway, University of London, I went on to complete a PGCE at Brunel University. In my 20 years as a Primary School teacher, I have taught children of all ages, mainly in the Windsor area, although I spent two years teaching in an International School in Hong Kong. As a very keen traveller, I have visited many countries in South America, Asia and Northern Africa and before starting university, I spent a year with my family on a Teacher Exchange visit to Australia. I am also a keen rugby supporter and I spend many weekends in Twickenham supporting Harlequins. I joined Clewer Green in 2000, and I thoroughly enjoy my role as a classroom teacher, Governor and Deputy Head.
Mr John Farmery
Foundation – Diocesan
Health & Safety Governor
I have been a Governor at the school for the last ten years. My involvement started when my children were pupils at the School. I trained and qualified as an Architectural Technician and have spent over 40 years working in design, building and management. I am currently working as Buildings and Estate Fabric Manager for a large UK listed Plc. It is my experience in building and maintenance work that I bring to the Governing body and I am currently a member of the Finance and Premises Committee. My outside interested include Steam railways – full-size and model, music, cooking and thoroughbred cars.
Mr Martin Tinsley
When leaving school in Bournemouth I had no idea where my future lay and as a result was forcibly encouraged to get a job by my parents. As a result, I started working for a Health Insurance Provider as an underwriter which was interesting but not overly fulfilling! Many people, from family and friends to colleagues, had suggested that Teaching would probably be a really good career for me, prompting me to take 3 weeks holiday and spend them in our local church school. I absolutely loved it and badgered my way on to a BA Primary Ed course, with a specialism in RE at King Alfred's College in Winchester. The rest as they say is history, and I have found my way to Clewer Green via Marlow and Maidenhead. Sport has always played an important part in my life and I have played volleyball and rugby to a fairly high standard with cricket and golf on a more sociable level. My family have always been the very essence of who I am, and though I might moan about them sometimes, my wife and 3 girls are fantastic and take up a lot of my time.
Rev Rosie Webb
Vice Chair of Governors
I have been rector of Clewer Parish since 2013 and have previously been a LEA Governor at a Roman Catholic Primary School. Before becoming rector I was a school nurse working with the National Health in School Programme for 10 years and prior to my ordination I was a mental health adviser for a school. My passion is for the whole child's spiritual, physical and emotional wellbeing. My role on the Governing Board of Clewer Green is the pastoral and spiritual support for staff and pupils. I am also RE and Wellbeing Governor. When I do get some spare time I like to love to spend time walking the dog and being with my family.
Jane Cockman, Safeguarding Governor
PCC of Clewer St Andrew and All Saints Dedworth
I am a regular and active member of the congregation of St Andrews church, Clewer. I worked for 16 years as ICT Technician in several local first schools, and my four children have all been through the Windsor education system. Currently retired, I am studying for a History degree with the Open University. Hobbies include bell-ringing at St Andrews church, and playing violin in the Windsor Community Orchestra.
Mrs Sam Collinson-Jones
Deputy Safeguarding Lead
I moved from Wales to Windsor 15 years ago, shortly after completing my B.Ed (hons) specialising in Mathematics and Science at the University of Wales, Bangor. I taught a range of year groups for brief periods in schools across Berkshire for 2 years before joining Clewer Green. At home, I spend much time painting; I often have multiple surfaces at home covered with my drying artwork and the accidental odd end of my hair a random colour of paint. I love a good road trip and often visit the seaside with my family and gorgeous dogs. I enjoy leading literacy, creating enriching learning experiences and working hard to ensure children enjoy their time at school. I am very happy working at Clewer Green and proud to be part of the fantastic team working here.

Pupil Premium Governor
