Out dedicated team of Governors
Chair of Governors
Hi, I’m Mike, and I’m really proud that I can help to keep William Lilley a brilliant place for our kids to learn together as a parent governor. I’m father to three – Alfie and Noah, both who had his three years and moved on to Fairfield now, and little Sophie who will be a pupil here in years to come, so I really want to help everyone at the school - pupils and staff - to do the best they can!
I have worked with children and teenagers with emotional difficulties for many years, and now lecture in psychology at Nottingham Trent University, so I hope I can bring some useful skills to my role at the school. Please always feel free to approach me if there is anything that you would like to say about the school, good or bad – I promise to do everything I can to help.
Vice Chair of Governors
Hi, I'm Dave Pearson. I have been a Governor at William Lilley since 2006. I was born in Stapleford in 1949 and I am a former pupil of the school. I am a graduate of Leeds University, where I gained a degree in Electronic Engineering. I have also worked in several North London Secondary Schools, where I taught Mathematics and Science.
Since becoming a Governor I have been involved in Monitoring; S&D Committee and Performance Management and have also served as Complaints Governor for a period. I was also involved throughout in helping the school achieve the Stephen Lawrence award. I passionately believe in this school and believe its most important feature is the school ethos, which permeates throughout the school, the pupils, the staff and the Governors and fosters a wonderful learning environment.
Local Authority Governor
Hello, I'm Caroline. I have a daughter who attended William Lilley and love the community feel this school has. I qualified as a Speech and Language Therapist in 2001 working with both adults and adults with learning disabilities. As communication skills and language are so important, it is these key areas I'll be interested in as a member of the strategic development and pupils committees. I hope my training and experience can help the school continue the great work it does with and for the children. We're passionate about supporting families too, so please do sign up for Share if you can.
I joined William Lilley in September 2010 as Deputy and since joining the team, I have taught children from Reception to Year 2 whilst also supporting in the strategic development of the school.
I feel incredibly privileged to now be leading the school forward into our next chapter. Out school is a tight community and we have many strengths which hold us in high regard in Stapleford and beyond.
As school we are always looking at how we can enhance our provision in order to provide the very best education for every child and I am vigilant in driving forward improvements with our dedicated staff team.
My role on the Governing body enables me to share and consolidate this vision, ensuring that all children achieve their potential in an enjoyable yet fun way.
