Wayne Smith-Dowse

Parent Governor since January 2019

I live locally in Shaftesbury, and I am a Dad to five children, three of whom currently attend Ludwell Primary School (previously four children). My family moved from out of county to Dorset in 2017, with the charm and appeal of Ludwell School being a big part of the decision to move to the area.

I have worked within the railway industry based at Salisbury for over 20 years, having completed an engineering apprenticeship and achieving a degree in Electronic Engineering Beng E.E. I still currently enjoy getting my hands dirty fixing mainline trains from Exeter to London.

By becoming a new parent governor I aim to provide a parental perspective to the governing board, and over the coming years I am looking to help push Ludwell School forward to achieve the very best it can.
