Mrs Teresa Herman


LA Governor

14/12/17 – 13/12/21

 I have lived in Cubert for over forty five years and been a governor for twenty years.  

 Both of my children were educated at Cubert School and now I have two grandchildren attending the school.  

 My main roles on the Governing Board are safeguarding and HR although I have sat on all Committees over the years!

 I enjoy everything to do with the countryside including the beach, being a member of HBSLSC, and a keen walker. 

Mrs Tracey Wood


Co-opted Governor


As a co-opted governor, I look forward to being part of the school's journey in the coming years and hope to use my past experience to support my colleagues and the pupils at Cubert School.

 I have been a teacher for twenty three years and have spent the vast majority of my career teaching at Cubert School, teaching across both key stages and being the Assistant Headteacher.

I have many fond memories of both pupils and staff and it is with great pleasure that I have now joined the governing body.

I grew up and went to school in Hertfordshire before moving to Cornwall in 1981.

I have three children who all went to Cubert School and chaired the PTA. After a career change in 2002, I began working here. 

I have many roles in the school including HLTA, Sen interventions, Nurture Support and Wrap Around Care.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, long walks with my dogs, cooking and being creative.

Mrs Natalie Austin


Staff Governor 


 I grew up in Berkshire and studied Archaeology at The University of Reading.

I started my teaching career in museums before qualifying to teach in schools. I taught in Buckinghamshire before moving to Cornwall with my two children in 2018 to live near my family.

When I am not at work I am an avid reader and love exploring. We visit historical and archaeological sites all over the UK, walk, camp, climb peaks and generally enjoying being outside.

I have joined the governing body and the Curriculum Committee to help the children to access a broad curriculum to help develop a lifelong love of learning.

Mrs Louise Rowbotham

Parent Governor

I am a parent governor with two children at the school. I am new to the governing board and I am passionate about securing the best for the children at the school.

 I moved to Cornwall in 2019 with my family and I am the Director Of The Duchy Hospital in Truro. Any free time that I have is spent with my husband, daughter and son (preferably on the beach, water or bikes).
