My name is Kay Millership. I am the Academy Principal and have worked at St Joseph’s for 13 years. During this time I have been a class teacher, Key Stage One leader, SENCO and Assistant Headteacher. My varied roles at St Joseph’s have ensured that I have a thorough understanding of whole school needs and a strong vision to drive forward whole school improvement. I believe strongly in teamwork and value the strategic leadership of our governors at St Joseph’s. Working in partnership together we strive to ensure all children reach their full potential in a caring environment where they belong and respect each other.

I’m Tania Wiltshire, and I am very happy to be Year 6 teacher at St Joseph’s. I am committed to providing a varied and creative curriculum for our children, providing many opportunities for all children to learn in the way that suits them best.  My role as English Lead has enabled the introduction of many exciting strategies throughout the school.  I was delighted to be RE Lead at the time of our ‘Outstanding’ judgement.  As Staff Governor, I am proud to represent a totally motivated, creative and professional team, who consider the best interests of the children in everything they do.

Hello. My name is Ann Yandell and I am a Foundation Governor. I moved to Kent from Yorkshire when I married David. We have lived in Broadstairs and attended Our Lady Star of the Sea for 44 years. We have two daughters and a son and nine grandchildren. I am a retired Educational Psychologist.

I thoroughly enjoy the privilege of being a governor at St Josephs. It gives me opportunities to see children enjoy school and play their part in the wider community. It also enables me to give something back to the community in return for all the opportunities I have been given.

I have two children at St Joseph’s and I am a parishioner at Our Lady Star of the Sea, Broadstairs.

 I bring with me management, communication and project skills gained whilst working in the public sector and also whilst running my own business.

 Being a Governor is an opportunity to become actively involved in the life of the school. I am particularly interested in ensuring that all children have their individual strengths recognised and encouraged, so that they can reach their full potential.

I was born in 1958 in Lancashire, and after a number of moves ended up in Ashford, Kent in 1966. My first school was in Molesey, which was run by the Sisters of the Christian Retreat, the founders of St. Joseph’s. After school and university I spent seventeen years in the printing industry in Ashford. In my early forties I thought I had a vocation to be a priest and asked for this to be tested by the Southwark diocese. From 1999 to 2003 I trained at the Beda College in Rome and was ordained priest at St. Teresa of Avila, Ashford. I was appointed assistant priest at St. Thomas’ in Canterbury in 2003 and stayed there until 2006 when I was appointed Parish Priest of the Church of the Resurrection, Kirkdale, Sydenham. In 2011 I was asked to take over as parish priest here in Broadstairs.  I enjoy serving as both the schools’ Priest and as a Governor.  These days we are faced with many challenges and it is my hope that working closely with staff and parents at the school we will equip the children to face and deal with the future.
