Dr Colm Lonergan, Chair 

My professional background is as an Educational and Child Psychologist. I can see the strong progress children at St. Mary Cray are achieving.

The quality of teaching has been consistently good and this is seen through the positive views children have expressed when we have asked their views. Teachers I recently met are all approachable and have high expectations for all the children. The school leaders are exceptionally hardworking and reflective, always looking for ways to improve their practice. Mr Lowing has driven high expectations for both pupils and staff and in my opinion, this is well reflected throughout the school at all levels. A real cuture of excellent outcomes for all children, whether that be academic or social is celebrated. I feel that St Mary Cray Primary Academy is aiming high to provide an excellent education for all its pupils and this is being reflected in the above national average results over the last few years. I am the SEN/D Governor for the school and I sit on the Achievement and Curriculum Committee

 Yvonne Bear

A long career in community banking across London and the South East has given me commercial skills and experience which I hope to now use for the benefit of my local community. Passionate about the importance of education, I am delighted to be joining the successful team at St Mary Cray Primary Academy and helping the school go from strength to strength. I am also a Trustee of the Cray Valley Memorial Hall and have lived locally for 27 years.
