Chair of Governors
"I was appointed chair of governors at Hayfield in 2015 and I am enjoying the role tremendously. I have been a school governor for over 22 years, both in primary and secondary schools as well as serving on Wirral parental appeals, Wirral schools funding group and Wirral governors’ forum. I have an interest in the quality of education that is available for all children, the work/life balance for staff and the role schools have in the community. I have been fortunate to be involved with outstanding schools, teachers and governors and use that past experience to help me to provide support and appropriate challenge in my role at Hayfield Primary School."
Vice Chair of Governors
I initially joined the board of governors as a parent governor when my son was a year 5 pupil at Hayfield. In my 11 years I have enjoyed supporting the school and delighted in its efforts to provide the best education possible for pupils with a range of special educational needs from across the Wirral. I am also the treasurer and active member of the school PTA, raising funds to provide those "little extras" to help enhance our children's educational opportunities. Away from school I enjoy gardening and family history research - both of which involve a bit of digging from time to time!
Clerk to Governors
The Clerking service for Hayfield Primary School is supplied by Second2None School Support and I have been the allocated clerk since February 2017. I have been a Governor for 12 years at another Wirral primary school and I am using this experience to support Hayfield Primary School. I enjoy working with The Governors at Hayfield Primary School and take pride in helping to ensure that their business is dealt with in an organised and professional manner. Outside of work I am married, have three children aged 20, 19 and 15 and enjoy cricket and football.
I have been a Governor for Hayfield School over 10 years and feel privileged to be able to contribute towards the school community.
I am trained as a Speech and Language Therapist and have previously worked In Hayfield School in that role. Working within the school provided me with the opportunity of working closely with the staff and getting to know them well and my knowledge of speech, language and communication allows me to appreciate and understand the nature of the needs of the children who attend Hayfield. My current role as a Team Leader in the NHS has helped me to develop strong leadership skills that support my role as a Governor.
I am passionate about staff wellbeing and using Positive Psychology and Person Centred tools to increase wellbeing and resilience. I believe strongly that those we work with benefit greatly when we ourselves are well and flourishing.
Outside of work I love being creative and dabble in painting and pottery.
I was appointed as a governor in September 2017. By profession I am a Legal Clerk in a firm of Solicitors and help people after they have had accidents. I am a mum to my daughter, who is 8, who attends Hayfield and since transferring from mainstream to the Special Needs System I have seen a complete transformation in my daughter. This made me realise what the school can achieve with children with additional needs and I am keen to bring my knowledge of the Law together with my admiration of all aspects of Hayfields ethos into my role as a Governor.
Outside of school, apart from being a mum I have two dogs and two rabbits which keep me on my toes
I was appointed as a co-opted governor in September 2016.
I worked at Hayfield School for 32 years as a classroom teacher.
I am passionate and committed to ensuring an outstanding educational
provision for the pupils at Hayfield.
I have been involved with this outstanding school and use my experience to help me provide support
and appropriate challenge in my role at Hayfield
I have been a governor for the last 2 years since my appointment as Assistant Headteacher and I am a co-opted, non voting member. After graduating with a BEd Honours degree in Primary Education and Severe Learning Difficulties I have spent over 25 years working in special schools in London and on the Wirral. I started working at Hayfield School 22 years ago and have worked in every key stage, initially as a class teacher, senior teacher and now as assistant headteacher. I have a great interest in autism, complex learning difficulties and challenging behaviour. Hayfield School is a great community to work in and it continues to offer me new challenges and rewards
I have worked at Hayfield for over 20 years and have been in the teaching profession primarily in Special but did spend some time working in a mainstream setting. During this time I have been a Governor in excess of 15 years - initially as Teacher Governor and now as an Associate. I am passionate about Teaching and Learning, and enjoy the challenge of making learning accessible for all our children. Developing ideas and finding innovative ways to help children learn is extremely important at Hayfield. Another passion of mine is Technology; and again I welcome the opportunity of using it to enable the children to access new concepts.
Interests out of school are many and varied. I love to learn new things. I relax by Running and walking my Dogs.
