Since having started as the new Headteacher of Shenley Primary School in September 2019, I have enjoyed being such an integral part of this special community.

I have been a teacher and senior leader for the last 18 years, all in primary education, and I believe that every child has the right to receive an outstanding education. 

At Shenley, we have a very committed and dedicated team of staff and Governors, who all want the best for the children in our care. With the right environment and direction, Shenley will continue to go from strength to strength and we will continue to build on the many successes and strengths.

I am excited to be a part of this new chapter for our school and remain driven to ensure that Shenley becomes a securely 'good' school.

_______________

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/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. 

_______________

 

Having recently joined the Governing Body, coming from the world of business, I truly look forward to being able to use the professional experience that I have gleaned over my working years to assist and support the school in any way that I possibly can. I live in Bushey, and am a father and grandfather. As such I am delighted to be able to give back to Shenley Primary what was given to my children when they were young, and now my grandchildren, by the wonderful educational system that we have.  

 

_______________

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 2017 and was elected as a Staff Governor in July 2018. I take a pride in the learning and development that goes on within Shenley Primary and feel that my role as Staff Governor will give me a chance to be involved in some of the decisions in the future of the school. I am Chair of the 'Learning and Achievement' committee and I am dedicated to providing a positive and safe environment for the pupils to be a part of.

_______________

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.

_______________

Driving forward the improvement at Shenley is a matter close to my heart. Teaching and learning is my passion and I whole-heartedly believe that each and every single child and family that comes through our doors deserves nothing but the best. This is not only in terms of their academic achievement but also allowing every pupil to flourish in every respect so that they are fully confident and ready to move on to the next stage in their education and their future. My role as Assistant Headteacher, Associate Member of the Governing Body and being part of the ‘Learning and Achievement’ committee enables me to promote the highest standards that we all want to achieve and in every facet of school life. I joined the school in 2014 as a Phase Leader and English Lead and during my career I have worked in schools across London. I have two boys of my own, aged 2 and 6, and both them, my husband and I love the outdoors; moving to Hertfordshire four years ago has been a fantastic move for all of the family and a place we now call home.

_______________

 

I have worked as a teacher at Shenley Primary School since September 2009 and have since become an Assistant Head teacher and 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 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. 

 

_______________

 

I have a son in year 1 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.

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.

_______________

If you look up the word “education” in the dictionary, you will find that it can mean enlightenment. School is the starting point for life learning and its my aspiration to help children to realise their full enlightened potential through effective governance. I am a solicitor and I know first-hand, the importance that education has played in my life. I am excited to be part of this amazing committee and to help in any way that I can.  

 

                                                                                 _______________

I have worked at Shenley Primary School for 6 years. 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.
