Welcome to Margaretting Church of England Primary School

The Governing Body:

Mrs J. Stringer




Chair of Governors

Community Governor

I am a solicitor and a partner in a practice in Romford. I first came into contact with the school when my niece and nephew attended. They have moved on to secondary school now. I also had a sister who worked as a Teaching Assistant within the school but she has now retired.


I am currently the Chair of Governors.


I work closely with the Head Teacher and together with the Governing Body we are responsible for holding the school to account and ensuring the children are given the best education we can provide.  


I also undertake work in the following areas:


Pupil Perception: I carry out surveys of how the school is perceived by the pupils.


Pupil Disciplinary and Staff Disciplinary Appeals: If the occasion arises, I would be a member of the committee dealing with these issues.


Safeguarding: I monitor with the issues that arise in this area as an extra layer of protection for children and staff.

I have been teaching in Essex for 25 years and enjoying being headteacher of Margaretting Primary school.

I enjoy developing relationships with parents and Governors and when everybody works together it creates a successful community.

My name is Catherine Elliott and I became a Parent Governor in December 2015. I have a daughter in Year 6.  I spend a lot of time in school volunteering with listening to the children read and helping with the PTFA. This leads me to be able to see the children regularly and I feel that the children all know me well.  My role within the Governing body is the Training Link Governor. I feel privileged to be part of our schools Governing Body and enjoy working alongside everyone to support the school to become the best that it can be.

Parent Governor

My name is Sue Monger. I have been a Parent Governor since December 2013 and play an active part in school life. I am in school a considerable amount due to being on the PTFA and working in the office. This allows me a rare insight into school life, relationships and how the children behave and feel during the school day. Alongside this, my area of responsibility on the Governing board Early Years. I have carried out health and safety inspections and monitored fire drills and safety in the school generally. I see my main role as one that will help to move the school forward and improve standards in any way that I can. I consider myself lucky to be part of a governing board that is supportive of each other and the Head Teacher. I have two children in School in years 3 and 5.

Ms. Laura Gopsill








Co-opted Governor

My name is Laura Gopsill and I am a co-opted school Governor. I also currently work for the UK’s largest bank as a strategic Relationship Manager based in London. Prior to starting my career with the bank, I studied languages at University. As part of my degree I worked in schools both abroad and in the UK. I taught Spanish to A-level students in Nottingham and English as a foreign language in a remote primary school in Extremadura, Spain. I saw the opportunity to become a school governor as a way of giving something back to the local community; I also hope to share my experiences of working within different schools. I have a personal interest in education and helping young people to achieve their full potential. I also hope to help form a strategic approach going forward, which will enable pupils to thrive and succeed in a happy, healthy environment.
