Sue Neal Co-chair
I have recently moved to Banbury from Warmington, where my husband’s family farmed for many years. We worship at the Peoples Church in Banbury and are responsible for discipleship training. Until I retired I worked at Banbury school for 20 years, mainly in the areas of SEN and maths. I have 9 grandchildren of primary school age and younger and am passionate about every child fulfilling their potential in a caring, nurturing and supportive environment. My particular governor responsibilities are as SEND and Kestrels link and as co-chair. I am a member of the Standards committee.

I was elected as parent Governor, with a son who started at Wroxton in reception and has just left for secondary school. I have been elected to the co-chair of Governors, and recently taken on a role in the Resources committee, where I aim to put my years of financial experience to good use. I have worked in finance since leaving school, as well as 5 years running a childcare business with my wife. I have worshipped at The Peoples Church in Banbury for the past 10 years.
I have lived in Wroxton since 1992 and, although now adults, both of my children attended Wroxton Primary School. I work as an engineer in the Department of Physics at Oxford University.
I have been a Foundation governor since 2011 and I am Chair of the Standards Committee, the Safeguarding governor and the link governor for the Eagles class.
I have lived in Balscote for 27 years and three years ago joined the Parish Council, through which I became the Parish representative on the School Governing Board. Previously I worked for many years at a primary school in Banbury as a school manager. Now I am an advisor at Citizens Advice. I am a Foundation governor, chair of the Resources committee and link governor for the Kites class.Suzie Bates.
I joined the governing board as a Foundation Governor in 2017 and am a member of the standards committee. I've lived in Wroxton for 10 years with my husband and 3 children, who have all attended Wroxton school, so I have an understanding of the school as a current parent. My experience is that it is a nurturing school that is committed to teaching children the importance of values.
My work is as a doctor at Katharine House Hospice and the Horton Hospital and I am also responsible for the regional training of doctors wishing to specialise in this area of medicine.
