Chair of Governor's Welcome


Dear Bolsover Church of England Junior School Community,


My name is Alison Adair, and I have recently joined the governing body, currently acting in the role as Chair of Governors.

I am delighted to be able to serve our school community and to support the school leadership team as effectively as I can as we journey together towards ‘good’. It is so thrilling and a genuine privilege to be part of a school where the team are so committed to improving opportunities for every pupil every day.


Originally from the Chesterfield area, my family and I moved to live in Bolsover in 2014. Sean, my husband, is the local Methodist Minister based at Hilltop Methodist Church. We have two grown up daughters, Lauren and Beth.


I bring my own expertise and skills in education to the role as Chair of Governors, as I currently work as an Executive Headteacher and National Leader of Education in the Diocese Sheffield Academies Trust. Within that role, I have managed schools who have found themselves in a similar situation to our own, in an Ofsted category, or with outcomes well below national, leading them to rapid and sustained improvement. Hopefully, some of these skills and experiences will prove useful as I serve the school community in my role as a governor.


As Chair of Governors, I would like to thank all the members of the Governing Body, the Headteacher and all the staff for their dedication and for the time they give the school throughout the year.


I look forward to serving alongside you all!


Alison Adair
