Meet the Governors

Linda White: Chair of Governors

Being relatively new to this beautiful area, I am proud to be part of the Crosby team. The happy, motivated children and the dedicated, talented staff make a great school.



I enjoy being a parent governor so that I can be involved in my two childrens' education.  We are so lucky to have such a fantastic local village school.  Crosby Ravensworth is so fantastic, with excellent teaching, after school clubs and a friendly nurturing environment.

My favourite thing about Crosby school is the friendliness of both the children and the staff - it’s like one big family.  Sarah Rogers


My favourite things about Crosby school are its welcoming nature, its wonderful children, its close-knit community and much more!  Susan Pattinson


Our school is set in the most stunning location.  It's a privilege to come to work here and play a part in shaping the future of the community.  The children are inspirational in every way imaginable.

Having worked and looked after children in the NHS for 40 years I am now semi-retired and living not far from Crosby Ravensworth.  I am looking forward to contributing in a different way to the development of our younger generation.

I’m sixty–three, live in Bampton, work at Oxfam (Penrith) and am currently a Cumbria County Councillor.  Although I am already extremely busy, I 'volunteered' to act as Local Authority Governor because no-one else would come forward!

All the children at Crosby Ravensworth Primary School deserve the best start in life as possible and I hope I can add to the great work already being done.
