Mrs Becky Wood (Headteacher) - People, Finance and Premises Committee/Achievement and Quality of Teaching Committee

I have worked at a school in Peterborough for the last 13 years where I was also a member of the governing body and I am excited to have been appointed as the new Headteacher at Langtoft this September. The school has an excellent reputation which I am keen to build on and develop provision for the pupils and community.

I have been a member of the Governing Board at Langtoft Primary School since Autumn 2014 and was elected as the Chair in August 2015.  I work in Peterborough as a Programme Manager at Perkins Engines and our family have lived in Langtoft since 2012 with our twin daughters attending the school until 2019.  

As the Chair of Governors I will ensure that the work of the Governing Body is both efficiently and effectively undertaken and is focused, at all times, in ensuring that all of our children are educated to achieve the best of their ability within a safe, happy and successful educational environment.

Mr Will Fisk, Co-opted Governor - Lead of Achievement and Quality of Teaching Committee

I am a proud parent of three, Toby and Freddie (now at secondary school) and Beatrice.  I am a Deputy Headteacher at a school in Peterborough and as well as having a passionate interest in the whole education of young people, I enjoy football and music.  I decided to become a governor to increase my engagement with this fantastic school my children attend.

I am a parent of three children and am an accounts administrator at a local company and I am also the Scout Leader at 1st Thurlby Scout Group.  After many years of being involved with Langtoft Primary School as a parent, a F.O.L.S. member and a staff member, I have taken up a role as co-opted governor.  I am really looking forward to fulfilling this role and helping to maintain the already high standards that the school has achieved.

Mrs Karen Gordon, Co-opted Governor - Wellbeing and Provision Committee

I believe that a child's primary school years are crucial in developing a love of learning as well as shaping character, and should be full of happy memories too.  I have two children at Langtoft School and am very satisfied with the experience they are having here. 

I am a qualified secondary teacher and have experience in both secondary and primary classrooms. As a governor I hope to ensure the high standard of care and education continues and, where appropriate, improves, so that every child leaves at Year 6 having had the best all-round experiences, opportunities and challenges we can offer.

I have worked at Langtoft since 2002 in a variety of age groups.  I am the Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo) and gained the National SENCO qualification in 2018.  It is rewarding to be working with children and their families and being able to provide support where needed. 


Mrs Emma Graham, Parent Governor - People, Finance and Premises Committee and Safeguarding Governor

I have lived in Langtoft since 2014 and am the proud parent of my two children, Harper and Austin who both attend Langtoft Primary School.  I am currently employed as the Head of Finance at New Stamford College and have been a qualified accountant for almost 10 years. 

I bring an honest and hard-working approach to work, and with this I am eager to help maintain Langtoft’s current high standards and to provide the necessary support for the both the children and the school

Miss Emily Sowinski, Co-opted Governor - Achievement and Quality of Teaching Committee 

I have been a primary school teacher for over six years and have experience working in both Key Stage 1 and 2. Prior to this, my background was in early years settings and I have worked in many local nurseries and pre-schools across the city of Peterborough. I believe that these experiences will help me apply a realistic expectation of working in education in my role as a governor. 

I am thrilled to be part of Langtoft Governing Body and look forward to working with the rest of the team in ensuring that the school continues to offer a high standard of care and education to its pupils.


 Miss Hannah Yemc, Co-opted Governor - Wellbeing and Provision Committee and SEND Governor

After living and working in Peterborough for a number of years I now live locally in Deeping St James with my young family.  Our daughter, Eva, joined the school in  2014 and our youngest, Ollie, now attends.  I work in Bourne as a Secondary English and Media Teacher and look forward to working alongside the team at Langtoft to continue to maintain the high standards of education and wellbeing that the school has such a reputation for.


Mr Tony Upward, Co-opted Governor  - People, Finance and Premises Committee and E-Safety Governor

I became a Co-opted Governor at Langtoft School in May 2017.  I am married to Lindsey and we have a daughter who attends the school. Being a Governor is interesting and insightful.  It is a really good way to give back to the school our daughter attends and the community in which we live.  I have seen first-hand the impact the Governing Body and that of others that support this amazing school.  I look forward to working with everyone going forward to help grow the school to its full potential.
