Mrs Judith Markey

Chair of Governors

I have been a governor both at Beaconside Infant School and the Primary School for 12 years and have been Chair for the last 8.  I am also on the Curriculum, Finance & premises and Staffing Committees too.  I was a primary school teacher all my working life, both in the UK and overseas, with experience in EYFS, KS1 and KS2.  I also spent 2 years as a Primary Geography Advisor in Cambridgeshire.  I have been both a parent-governor and teacher-governor in the past.  In retirement, I am keen to help the next generation of children and teachers through my role at Beaconside.

Rev. David Sargeant

Foundation Governor

David has been a governor in his role of Team Rector of the Penrith Ministry for 11 years, both for Beaconside Infants and then amalgamated Beaconside Primary School.  Two of his three children went through Beaconside, the third starting at UCC when the family moved to Penrith.  David is particularly interested in how we understand and nurture the distinctive Christian ethos of the school and how that is expressed in every aspect of our community life.  Away from work he is happy to be on the fells with his spaniels.
