Governor Pen Portraits

Here are a few words about some of our Governors…

Sandra Horton, (Chair of Governors)

I have lived in the area since 1954, attending Wood End School between 1954 and 1959.  I subsequently worked in Wood End and the surrounding area as a housing officer for Whitefriars Housing Group (previously Coventry City Council) for 29 years.  I also worked as a Youth Worker in Henley Green for 27 years.

I have been a school governor for 34 years having served on the governing bodies at Woodway Park Secondary School, Eburne Primary School, Annie Osborne Primary School and Henley Green Primary School.  I held the position of Chair of Governors at Eburne, Annie Osborne and Henley Green.

I have been on the governing body of Moat House Primary School since the school opened in 2002, becoming Chair of Governors in 2012.

Jaz Hayer

My name is Jaz Hayer and I have been a governor at Moat House since the start of the 2017/18 academic year. I am currently a Key Stage 2 class teacher at another school within the local authority.

Through my role as a class teacher, I have a very keen interest in improving outcomes for all pupils through high quality teaching and learning. I am the named governor for teaching and learning and will be closely liaising with Miss Collins in order to identify the impact and effectiveness of whole school initiatives.

Mel Collins

My name is Melanie Collins and I am the teacher representative on Moat House’s governing body. I have been a governor at Moat House since 2015 but have a lot of experience in this role, as I have been a governor in two of my previous school settings.

In my role as Deputy Headteacher at Moat House, it is extremely beneficial for me to be a part of the governing body so that I can work alongside, as well as support other key stakeholders. It is a privilege to work with members of the community in this role and I am excited about how we can work as a team to move the school forward.

Pat Seaman

I have been a governor since 2015 at MHPS.  This coincided with my appointment as an elected member of Coventry City Council for Henley Ward.

I bring to the board my experience of being a mother of six children and skills developed throughout my professional career as a community and youth worker.

I fully support the school’s vision statement and will commit to ensure all of the children reach their potential as a member of the school board.

Alasdair Black

As Headteacher, I automatically become part of the governing body. This gives me the opportunity to discuss the strategic direction of the school with governors and to discuss school performance, standards and finance with them. They provide invaluable support but can be very challenging at times when holding me to account for the progress of pupils in the school. We all want the best for our children!

Additionally, I am grateful for the support which governors also provide throughout the school year through activities such as the termly Governor Awards, invigilating during SATs tests and supporting key areas school development through Learning Walks and meeting school leaders.

Robert Hall MBE

I have been a Governor at the school for 16 years and I am also a Trustee of Moat House Community Trust.

My day job is as a local builder in the Walsgrave and Henley Green areas.

I am very interested in education and training, having trained many apprentices in the construction trades over the years.

Message from our Chair of Governors

Dear Parent,

On behalf of all the children, staff and governors may I welcome you to Moat House Community Primary School.

We are very proud of our school and the opportunities it offers to all of pupils. Everyone involved sets the highest standards in both work and behaviour and every effort is made to ensure that each individual achieves their full potential.

I believe we offer a caring, stimulating environment where the relationships that exist between pupils , parents and staff promote a high quality of education.

The school is committed to working closely with parents, to ensure that each child derives the maximum benefit both academically and socially from their time at Moat House.

It has been my pleasure to be Chair of the Governing Body for some years now. Most recently we have been looking at how we can improve our  own performance in the leadership of the school and the development of an effective partnership with our new Headteacher. These developments will follow the reconstitution of the Governing Body.

You are very welcome to visit the school, either during one of our open sessions for new parents, or by appointment with the Headteacher.

We look forward to continuing to provide your child's education or your child joining us.

Sandra Horton

Chair of Governors
