Emma Appleyard

1Emma

I have lived in Nantwich all my life and I was educated at local schools and colleges, namely Brine Leas and South Cheshire College.

I qualified as a Solicitor in 2010 and specialise in Dispute Resolution and Employment, I find both Departments interesting and challenging.  I meet a variety of people in my day to day work.  I started as a Trainee and have progressed to be Head of Department.   I enjoy networking for the firm and take part in local events such as the Nantwich Show and Food Festival. 

I enjoy socialising with my friends and family. I love watching and playing netball. When I am not socialising or playing netball I enjoy a good movie.

I have lived in Shavington for over 10 years having returned to Cheshire after spending my early career working in the Midlands. I attended Nantwich & Acton Grammar School and have strong links with the area.

I have two children at the school, Jacob in year 2 and Samuel in Reception, and want to provide whatever support is needed to maintain the high standards of our local primary.

My background is in Financial Services & Customer Support and I currently work in Hanley. I enjoy travel and, as a family, we try to visit a different country each year to experience something new each time. I also enjoy socialising with family and friends.

Andrea Fisher

I have lived in Shavington all of my life and attended Shavington Infant and Junior School as well as Shavington High School. This has enabled me to develop strong links within the local community.

In 2018, I became a co-opted member of the Local Advisory Board. Previously I had been elected as a parent governor. During this time I have seen the school go from strength to strength.

I am currently the Assistant Principal and SENCO in a large primary school in Crewe.

During my time as a teacher, I have worked across all ages from Nursery to Year 6. I have experience of being an English co-ordinator, Maths co-ordinator, RE co-ordinator and temporary Early Years Lead.

My current responsibilities include being the SENCO across an Academy and Day Nursery. I am familiar with data as well as the strategies used for measuring progress across a primary school. I feel passionate about encouraging each child to be the best that they can be.

I feel that the vast experience I have in education has enabled me to support the Local Advisory Board of Shavington Primary School in sustaining its good educational aims for the children.

All Local Advisory board meetings are clerked by Debbie Tomkinson who is an independent clerk. 

What binds all of us, regardless of our status is the key question "What is the best thing for the school and the children who attend it both now and in the future?" If you would like to meet the Chair of the board for whatever reason, please contact the school office or the Head of School in the first instance.
