My name is Karen Mumberson and I am thrilled to be the Chair of the Governing Body at Ewanrigg Junior School.

My time linked with EJS started in 2011 when my eldest daughter became a year 3 student. I joined the PTA that September and I have remained a member ever since.

Both of my girls have attended EJS and have now moved on to their secondary school. A favourite saying at EJS is "Once EJS family, always EJS family" and in my experience that is definitely true.

I became a governor in 2015 and in 2018 I took up the position of Chair of Governors.

We, as a school, will strive to provide your children with the best education, a positive environment and a caring place where they all feel safe.
