Derek Nevell - Head Teacher

My key responsibilities to the governing body are:

  • Responsible to the governing body for the standards of teaching and ensuring that proper standards of professional performance are established and maintained

Mandy Williams - Clerk

Emily Bott - Staff

I am the Foundation Stage/Key Stage One teacher at East Huntspill School.  I have worked there for many years now and am responsible for co-ordinating Computing across the federation.  Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family, having two young children keeps me very busy!  My hobbies include keeping fit, sewing and watching films/series.


Donna Prout - Co-Opted Governor

My name is Donna Prout and I am a parent governor for the Huntspill Federation with 1 child in year 5 at West Huntspill School and another who has now moved on to King Alfred School. I am part of the West Huntspill PTA which I joined in 2008 and I was active in school as a volunteer until 2013 when I returned to work. I chose to become a governor in order to extend my role in school life; helping the Federation achieve their goals and to enable the best possible outcomes for the children of both schools.

It is also responsible for implementing the National Curriculum and for monitoring the condition of the school premises and health and safety. 

The full Governing body meet twice per term and the minutes are available for inspection (unless they have been declared confidential) from the school office.
