I have lived in Biddulph for 49 years, and my daughter attended Oxhey First School. I have 39 years’ experience of working in schools, as a teacher for 22 years, and as a Headteacher for 17 years.   I have been a member of the Governing Body of Oxhey First School for 13 years and was Chair of the Governing Body from 2006 to 2013. (NGA guidance recommends that the Chair should occupy the position for no more than a recommended period of six years).Following my retirement as a Headteacher I have worked as clerk to the Governing Body of thirteen schools from 2006 to 2014, including most of the schools in Biddulph. I am proud of the education which Oxhey First School provides for the children and welcome the opportunities which the school’s membership of the Children First Learning Partnership will give to all at Oxhey.

I have recently been appointed to the Local Advisory Board for Oxhey First School and I am really happy to be part of the Oxhey journey at this very exciting time. I have two young sons, one of which is currently in year 1, so I am committed to ensuring our children’s learning environment is an enjoyable one; and a place where our children are encouraged and nurtured to be the very best they can be.

I am a solicitor by profession, with 15 years litigation and governance experience. I bring my professional skills to this role as well as skills I’ve developed over the past 3 years being part of a very effective governing body at Endon High School, where I was also the link governor for history.

I am really looking forward to working with the whole school community and would like to hear from you if you have any questions or queries. My contact details can be obtained from the school reception.

Since joining the governing body of Oxhey around 17 years ago Alan has held various posts including vice chair and chair for a short time. He conducted the head teacher’s performance management for many years and has spent most of his time lending his opinion on the financial side of the school’s activities.

His skill set is mainly from a business and finance angle, but as a parent of a former pupil, and as a former pupil himself, he has a long-standing interest in the continued success of the school for all present and future pupils.

He has great faith in the future of the MAT and Oxhey’s role within it. The LAB has some new faces now and these new sets of opinions will only strengthen the board going forward.

Role (s): Parent Governor - Safeguarding Link

Date appointed: June 2021

Appointed by: Children First Learning Partnership Directors

Term of Office:

Relationships between other governors or school staff: None

Relevant Business and Pecuniary Interests including governance roles in other educational institutions: None

Pen portrait:

I am a fully qualified and experienced secondary school teacher of English and I have specialized in teaching children with medical needs who are unable to attend school for the last 5 years. Through my role, I’ve developed lots of multi-agency liaison experience, attended regular multi-agency meetings, written a lot of risk assessments, kept detailed records of concern and am heavily involved in matters around safeguarding and child welfare. Much of my work requires collaboration with a range of schools and medical services to ensure the best outcome for each individual child, based on their unique needs.

I have a broad curriculum knowledge due to the many challenges faced by some of the children I teach and their individual requirements; I often have to be very adaptable and have learned to really think outside the box.

I have two children at Oxhey First School and I’m passionate in helping to contribute to the nurturing, inclusive and warm environment of the school, that both children and staff can thrive in emotionally, academically and professionally.
