Meet Our Governors

The Governors at White Rock Primary School are committed to ensuring that all the children receive the best education possible. We work with the staff by supporting and challenging the Senior Leadership and by monitoring all aspects of school life.

We meet at least twice each term and are closely involved with the strategic planning of finance and curriculum. We monitor the progress of the children and have oversight of the professional performance of the staff.

We welcome comments from the parents and carers and actively seek the opinions of all staff and children.

Pen Portraits of our Governors


Guy Boosey- Parent Governor

I have worked in IT, management and leadership roles within the NHS since 2003. This has given me lots of transferable skills and knowledge (Governance, safeguarding, policies etc) which I hope I can use to benefit White Rock. It is a privilege to hold a position as a governor at the school which continues to do much for my children Eleanor and Daniel, and for us as a family. I am very proud of White Rock and welcome the opportunity to give something back.


​Mark Glew- Chair of Governors

After a brief career in accountancy I have been in education for the past 20 years. With my main subject specialisms Business and Economics I have worked in a wide range of schools, from grammar to independent and comprehensive to international. With my family I have been able to combine my love of teaching and travel with jobs in Singapore, Shanghai and Malaysia before recently moving into Torbay. I have two boys that started at White Rock in 2014; moving to a new area with a young family is always an uncertain time but the school community has been wonderfully supportive and the boys are extremely happy and love coming to school. With experience in school leadership, a governor position in a previous school and a financial background, I hope I can contribute something back to the school and play a small part in helping all students thrive and achieve their full potential.
