Welcome to Chetwynd Primary Academy!  

Everything we do at Chetwynd is about providing our children with an excellent education and enriching experiences to promote a love of learning. Our aim for our school community is to strive to be better than our best! 

We think Chetwynd is a very special place to be because of our wonderful children. We strive to provide the very highest standards of education within a caring, exciting and stimulating environment.

We want our children to be excited by the curriculum and challenged to achieve their full potential. We want our children to enjoy their learning and feel valued. By working closely with our parents and governors, we ensure that all our children have an excellent start to their educational journey.

 We hope that our website captures the spirit of Chetwynd and the rich and varied opportunities children receive at our school. 

Parents are warmly welcomed to come in and help so please drop in and chat to a member of staff. 

Lorraine Tonks (Principal)

Co-opted Governor

Term of Office: 12/09/2018 - Present


Why am I a Governor?

I am pleased to be taking on my first governor role at Chetwynd Primary Academy and I am keen to make a positive contribution to the education system. Since 2016, I have been working within the Department for Education, where I have developed and managed government policy and education initiatives across England.

About me

I love spending time with my family and friends, as well as visiting to new places in England and overseas.  My daughter joined Puffins in September 2018 and I am enjoying watching her settle in to school life.

Why am I a Governor?

I volunteered to be a governor as I am keen to support the school and to help it achieve its aims in any way I can. I also thoroughly enjoy being involved in the community and have done this through various different roles. I have seen Chetwynd go from strength to strength over the years and I am proud to be a part of it.

Getting to know Laura:

I am an Executive Officer for HM Land Registry. I have worked there for 12 years and in the civil service for 17 years overall. I am also Chair of The Friends of George Spencer committee; a role which I find extremely enjoyable and rewarding (especially the Gin Nights!). I have 2 children, Ellie and Thomas. Ellie has already been through Chetwynd and is now at George Spencer, and Thomas started in Puffins in September 2017.

Why am I a Governor?

My eldest son was diagnosed with DCD (Dyspraxia) with autistic traits last year and I am passionate about supporting him, the school and all children with special needs in education and outside of it. I am also a MHFA (Mental health first aider) with training in Armed Forces MH and enthusiastic about raising awareness in this area. As a member of the Armed Forces community I also hope to help in strengthening the ties between the school, community and the barracks.

Getting to know Vickie:

I qualified from Blackpool University with a BA(Hons) in Natural History and Scientific Illustration in 1997 and freelanced as an artist for many years. I eventually settled as an archivist in a military affiliated archive in Boscombe Down, Wiltshire where I met and married my husband Chris who is a soldier. I am now a mum to two fabulous children who both attend Chetwynd, since they transferred in in 2017.

I work part-time at Chetwynd barracks where I manage accommodation and reception for the junior NCO's (Non-commissioned officers) at the WOs' & Sgts' Mess. In my spare time I am a dedicated member of FISH and I also like to bake, garden and create art projects.

My son is at Chetwynd (with my daughter keen to join him soon!). I have a great interest in education and hope to contribute in some way to help Chetwynd continue to excel. Plus there are huge changes taking place in our community in the coming years (the closure of the barracks, HS2) and wish to play a role in shaping and securing Chetwynd's future.

Getting to know Chin:

I'm a services executive for a global IT company with over 16 years of experience. I have a degree in Engineering and an MBA. As well as spending time with my family and friends, I enjoy travelling and at some point will take up running again.
