I have a child in Year 1 and Year 3 and work as Head of Travel for ESI Media in the commercial department. In addition to this I also run a social business supporting communities worldwide through marketing their products. I have a keen interest in child education and development and would like to use my skills to contribute to enriching the intellectual, emotional and social development of all pupils at Little Heath building a strong foundation as they enter the next stage of their lives.

Mrs Cresswell

Vice Chair

I currently have one child in Year 1 and another due to start in 2019. I am a teacher at a local primary school my roles include Key Stage 1, English lead and SENCO. I feel it is important to support my children’s education and the school they attend. My knowledge and understanding of both curriculum and pastoral care help me to gain a rounded picture of how school life works. I feel it is important to have a good working relationship between a school and parents and hope my role as a governor help this. I have an interest in the emotional well - being of children and making sure children gain the education they are entitled to.

Head Teacher - School Improvement, Resources

As the head teacher, I am a full member of the governing body. I attend all board and committee meetings. I have been head teacher since January 2009. Before then, I worked in nine other schools across the length and breadth of the country. My last post was as a deputy head in Cheshunt. As well as teaching I have been involved in the governing body of different schools for over 20 years as I have always thought that the work of the governing body to be vital to the strategic development of the school. I enjoy working with the governors of Little Heath as they are all committed to moving the school forward and I know that with their continued support the school will continue to flourish and grow.

Partnership Governor - School Improvement, Complaints Panel

I have lived in Potters Bar since 1969 and have worked with my husband, who is a structural engineer, for around thirty years. I am now (almost) retired and am pleased to have joined the governing body of Little Heath School as I have an interest in primary education. I enjoy my membership of the U3A, sit on two local charitable trusts and have a connection to the charity International China Concern, which supports China's abandoned children. My children attended Little Heath School many years ago and I look forward to once again being involved with the school.

Mrs P Dobson

Community Governor - School Improvement, Complaints Panel

I am a Community Governor. Both my daughters went to Little Heath School in the 1980s and it is with gratitude for the wonderful teaching and support that they received then that I would like, in turn, to support the School in any way that I can. I have taught children with specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia or dyspraxia for many years, and my particular passion is communication – communicating ideas in a way that they are understood by children who, perhaps, have unusual ways of looking at things; who have brains which work in a ‘different’ way.

Chair of School Improvement

I am a parent governor and I currently have two children at the school with another still to join in 2019. I was born locally and have lived in Potters Bar all of my life so I have a strong sense of belonging and I’m keen to ensure the school and our children make a positive contribution to our community. Personally I have over 20 years’ of experience in the legal sector having started off as a commercial lawyer I then moved across to recruitment and law firm management. I bring a range of skills and knowledge which I intend to use for the benefit of our school. An area of particular interest for me is the emotional wellbeing of our children; I would like to ensure they have the right foundation for the future.
