Meet our PTA Committee 

Andrew Chambers – Chairperson

“Hello! I am excited to step into the Chair role and look forward to working with the group on lots of exciting things over the coming months.
I have three children. Charlie has just moved up to secondary school from Yanwath, Brooke is in year 5 and Jack in year 3.
I am the Company Director and bulk haulage long distance lorry driver of a local family business which has been established for over 65 years.
My children are the fourth generation of the Chambers family to attend Yanwath School and I am passionate to help the school continue to be the success it always has been.”

Charlotte Harrison – Treasurer 

“I am mum to Niamh in Year 1 at Yanwath.
Having volunteered at youth clubs and worked in accountancy roles for coming up 15 years, I currently work in project management and business analytics for an apprenticeship training company. I feel strongly that education for our young people is important and I’m looking forward to working with the PTA and all the parents of the school for the benefit of our children and community”.


Nicola Chambers – Community Engagement 

“I have 3 children at Yanwath, Charlie Year 6, Brooke Year 4 and Jack Year 2. We live locally in Tirril and I work as a hairdresser in Penrith. I have been part of the PTA for the last three years and volunteered to help in school with reading. I am really looking forward to continuing to work with school and its community”.


Nic Pearce – Community Engagement 

“Originally from Essex, I moved to Penrith with my family a couple of years ago, my two children attend and love Yanwath. I have lots of ideas and enthusiasm to assist with raising money for the school and have already made some links with local businesses”.


Laura Brough – Social Media and Advertisement 

“I am mum to Josh in Year 3 and Anya in Year 1.
I have worked in Social Housing for 15 years, currently for a national housing association as the Neighbourhood Planner for the North of England.
I am passionate about our school and optimising the facilities and opportunities for our children, amazing teachers and the wider community”.




Sammie Hart – Office Manager at Yanwath Primary School 


“I have worked at Yanwath since 2018 after working for a short time in the Trust’s Central Team. Prior to that, I was the Administrator at Raughton Head Primary School and Staff Services Administrator at a Secondary girl’s school in Kent. I am looking forward to seeing how the new PTA progresses and keen to be a part of it as much as I can”.


Melissa Gomersall – Early Years Teacher at Yanwath Primary School 

“I have worked at Yanwath for just over a year now but have been teaching for 9 years in total. I have worked with all age groups from Nursery up to Year 6 but Early Years is my passion. I love anything creative and enjoy baking, dancing and playing various instruments in my free time”.

We still have two posts within the PTA that need filled, Vice Chair and Vice Treasurer. If you are interested, please contact Andrew Chambers or Mrs Floyd.
There is a wider group of parents from across the school who have expressed an interest in helping the PTA and there is now a WhatsApp Group. Again, if you would like added into the group please speak to any of the above members.
