I am very proud to have been appointed as the Headteacher at Shenley Primary School and I look forward to working with the children, staff and parents to ensure that this school is a safe, happy and inspiring place to learn. I am very passionate about providing a high quality of education for children and nurturing them to achieve the very best that they can.
I have been a teacher for over 30 years in a variety of roles, more recently I have been Deputy Headteacher and then Co-headteacher in West Sussex for 10 years. I have been a governor in two different schools over the last 15 years and I have had the opportunity to engage in the strategic role of governance. I have four grown up sons and three granddaughters, I love spending time with my family, dog walking, playing the piano and baking cakes.
I moved to Shenley in 2007 and joined the governing body in 2014. I have a son who attended the school for 8 years up to July 2018. As Chair, I attend all committee and full governing body meetings. I also visit the school on a regular basis to meet with the Headteacher and receive updates on school progress. I strongly believe that every child deserves the best education possible and it is a privilege for me to be able to offer my support to the school community.
My love for the nurturing and educational development of children has driven me throughout my long career in teaching.
I have taught across the primary age range and spent 20 years as Headteacher of three primary schools (amalgamating two of them).
I have also worked for the University of Herts as a part-time visiting tutor of trainee teachers, and a part-time support teacher in two schools (both after my retirement).
I am currently Chair of Governors at a large multi-cultural primary school in Northwood. When I started there nearly 4 years ago the school had been through some turbulence following many rapid changes in both leadership and governors.
I am also a SLOG (Strategic Leader of Governance) working with Herts Governance. This role includes mentoring of new Chairs, some training, attendance at various panels (Complaints etc.), and support for governing boards. There are currently about 30 of us.
I have worked as a teacher at Shenley since September 2015 and was elected as a co-opted governor in October 2016. I really enjoy working at the school and feel that my role as governor allows me to get more involved in the school and local community. I am a member of the 'Learning and Achievement' committee and I am committed to creating a positive learning environment which allows all children to thrive.
I have a son in Year 2 who is thriving at Shenley School, he motivates me to expect the best for him and the other students. I work as a senior manager in workforce and education for NHS mental health services across North London.
As a parent governor; I will encourage us to always put children’s wellbeing at the heart of everything we do. I will listen to parent’s / carer’s views and aim to present a balanced perspective on key issues.
My professional experiences include leadership development, education design, and sitting on boards such as safeguarding and quality improvement, for services in the NHS. I have a degree in Psychology and post graduate degree in strategic human resources. I have been actively involved in national apprenticeship development and university level curriculum development.
I hope to ensure I can have a positive influence on our children’s education and to be a positive and active member of the parent governor board.
I am a (mostly) retired teacher and have worked in both the maintained and the independent sectors and in secular and faith schools, teaching all subjects at primary level. I am strongly committed to helping children achieve their potential. I have three children and six grandchildren and have lived in Radlett for over 30 years.
Michael Olsen, born 75 years ago and still marvelling that even after threescore and ten, there is so much more in store for me.
I've been in business all of my adult life. During that time, I've adopted the philosophies and routines to life that continue to serve me and my family very well. I'm up early each day and in my studio most mornings. I am an artist, an activity that fills my days with joy and creativity. I've continued to exercise regularly from my early 20s and believe that the investment in my body and mind has paid off immeasurably. I frequently cycle over 50 miles, take 12-mile walks in my stride (aware of the pun) and I'm rarely ill.
My working life mostly involved retail activities ranging from Pharmacy, pet superstores, coffee shops as well as an operations/facilities manager for a large vet group. Prior to discovering my artistic side some 10 years ago, I worked as a handyman which honed my practical problem-solving skills. I'm very happily married, have 3 lovely sons of whom I'm immensely proud and a divine cockerpoo called Martha who is the latest love of my life.
I have been a teacher for the past 18 years in a variety of roles and leadership positions and became a qualified SENCo in 2016. For the past four years I have been part of the senior leadership team at Clore Shalom Primary School in Shenley that took it from 'Requiring Improvement', to 'Good'. I am currently the Deputy Head. I have taught all primary year groups and enjoy seeing children progress and develop emotionally and academically throughout their time in school. As a parent governor I will ensure that I have the best interest of all children at heart. I feel it is important for children to feel happy, safe and secure whilst in school so that they are ready to learn and are able to achieve their full potential.
I have three children, aged 7 to 13, who have all attended school in Shenley, and I have lived in the area since 2003.
I moved to Shenley in June 2021 and joined the governing body in December 2021. I am a qualified Solicitor with over 6 years experience and currently work as an in-house legal counsel.
I am keen to support the board of governors with my external knowledge and experience to help the school create a learning environment for the students to thrive. Outside of work I can be spotted walking around Shenley and the surrounding areas with my dog Bobby.
I have worked as a teacher at Shenley Primary School since September 2009 and have since become Deputy Headteacher and SENDCo, as well as an Associate Member of the Governing Body. I am extremely passionate about my job as both a teacher and leader of the school. I am proud of Shenley as a school; and as an educator I always strive to deliver the best for the children. Being an Associate Member means I can become even more involved in the schools strategic direction which is something I have always been keen to be part of. I have two daughters who attend Shenley and as both a parent and member of staff I feel extremely lucky to be part of the wider Shenley community.
I have worked at Shenley Primary School since 2014. I live in Shenley and my 2 children attended the school when they were younger. I am proud to be part of such a nurturing and caring school and I am so grateful to now to be able to support our children and families, just as my children were supported during their time here.
