Our Governors

Tony Holdsworth

Foundation Governor


Tony was brought up in Greenwich, one of a family of seven children. After graduating from university, he worked in publishing for 15 years before retraining as a teacher at Christ Church College in Canterbury.

Tony qualified as a teacher in 1990 and taught in three Kent schools before becoming headteacher of a Catholic primary school in Folkestone in 1997. He retired after 20 years at the school and now lives in Eltham.

His three sons all attended St. Anselm's Catholic Secondary School in Canterbury and Tony served as a Parent Governor of the school for four years.

Sue Reid

Local Authority Governor

I am proud to be a new member of the Governing Body of Holy Family Catholic Primary School.

I have a background in education and have worked with many schools in the Royal Borough of Greenwich over the past 14 years in my role as a school improvement partner.

It is rewarding to be involved with such a committed team of governors all focused on improving the life chances of children.

I look forward to using my experience and skills to support the school, children and community.

Davica Farrell-Evans

Parent Governor

I am so happy to have been recently appointed as a parent governor at Holy Family Primary School.

I am a qualified HR and project management professional and work for a Government Department. I have been a committee member of the Friends of Holy Family for several years and then the Chair for the last 3 years.

As a parent, I have been a member of the Holy Family school community since 2011. My oldest son previously attended Holy Family and my youngest still attends the school. I am very passionate and very proud of our school, community and parish and want to continue to work to enrich the lives of the children.

I welcome and look forward to the opportunity to use my experience and skills to support the whole Holy Family community.


Fr. Richard Plunkett

Foundation Governor

I am the Parish Priest of SS John Fisher & Thomas More Church Eltham Well Hall. I am also the Dean of Greenwich Deanery.

Before coming to Eltham, I worked in the Bishop’s Conference in the Catholic Communications Centre and also worked for the BBC World Service in Religious Broadcasting.

For the last forty-seven years, I have served in the Archdiocese of Southwark as a Foundation Governor in both primary and secondary schools.

I am also a Foundation Governor at my parish school of St. Thomas More Catholic Primary School, Eltham.

Fiona Uwagwu

Foundation Governor

My name is Fiona Uwagwu and I have been recently appointed as a Foundation Governor at
Holy Family Catholic School. Though a practicing catholic who has lived in the South East of
London most of her life, becoming part of the Holy Family ‘Family’ is the first time I thought
to bring both my faith and my professional expertise together. I was absolutely delighted to
be asked to be a Governor and was immediately won over by the warmth of my welcome,
the school story and the commitment and passion of everyone I met along the way, most
especially the head and the teachers.

I come from a corporate background, having spent my entire career working in the
communications and media industry. Most recently I have spent the last 10 years running
Digital and Social media agencies in UK, Kenya and Nigeria. I’m not sure how my particular
expertise will be valuable, but I am absolutely committed to using my experience and my
faith to help the school grow. If there is one thing I have perfected in my career, its
becoming part of a small team with strong ambitions and goals, working with and as part of
them, to help realize true potential.

Frances Bathurst

Foundation Governor

Hi!  My name is Frances Bathurst and I’m delighted to have recently been appointed as a Foundation Governor at Holy Family Catholic Primary school.  I have been associated with Holy Family for many years now, I have a son at the school and my daughter attended the school from Reception class to year 6 and now attends a Catholic secondary school.  For a number of years I have been an active member of the Holy Family Parent Committee working alongside the teachers and other parents to make social events a success whilst raising funds for the school. 

As a parent, practicing Catholic and now Foundation Governor at the school, the Catholic ethos and character of the school are of great importance to me.  I feel privileged to be part of the school’s future journey,  I have seen how much passion and vision the Head Teacher and Leadership team have, they want to improve and enhance the children’s educational experience.  Whilst working alongside the other Governors and Teaching Staff, I’m really looking forward to helping the school achieve its goals and ambitions.
