Who's who on the Governing Body


Emma  Davey - Chair of Governors, LA Governor


I have been very fortunate to have been a Governor of Donington on Bain Primary school since 2010. It has been a very interesting time where we have seen the school evolve through hard work from children, staff and Governors alike into the wonderful school it is today.

I have three children aged 16, 14 and 8 all of which still are or have been students at Donington all the way through their Primary years. 

I was a teacher at a local primary school for 18 years until 2017 when I decided to have a change in career and put my focus into the business which my husband and I have. We wholesale and distribute locally made food and drink within the county and further afield. I have also recently opened a shop on Steep Hill in Lincoln called ‘A little bit of Lincolnshire’.


Tim Needham - Parent Governor


Both of our sons are at Donington on Bain and I also attended the school myself. I have a business background, working in our family farming business in conjunction with consultancy work.


I joined the board of governors at Donington on Bain  in 2017. Through my role as a governor I try to use any knowledge I have to assist the school in the challenges it faces to continue to provide high standards of teaching and learning in conjunction with the caring and nurturing culture of the school to enable every child to achieve their potential.


Aimee Quickfall - Parent Governor


I am proud to be a parent governor at Donington-on-Bain Primary School and i took up this role in 2020. My son is in Year 3 and has benefited so much from attending our school.


I am also Head of Programmes for Primary and Early Years Initial Teacher Education at Bishop Grosseteste University in Lincoln. Previously I was a primary teacher for 12 years, working in every year group from Nursery to Year 6 in Lincolnshire and Nottingham. 


Stephen Woodcock MBE - Co-opted Governor


Having spent over thirty years in education, I understand the diverse needs of a school. In my current work as a supply teacher I operate in a wide variety of schools in both the primary and secondary phases, and am keen to support this school as a governor. Many years ago I attended this school! I am a retired Chief Officer of Lincolnshire Police, and also serve as a Churchwarden.


Danielle Wright - Staff Governor



Louise Anyan - Headteacher


I have been Headteacher at Donington on Bain Primary since November 2012. Prior to taking on this role, I taught  Reception and Year 1 at Donington for 11 years and I was also a staff governor during this time.  I have worked in other small primary schools within Lincolnshire and I am a passionate advocate for the benefits a school our size can bring for our children and families. Donington on Bain is situated in a beautiful part of rural Lincolnshire and it is a pleasure to work within this community.
