In addition to this I run a social business supporting underprivileged communities through marketing their products and thus generating a demand for their ethical products.

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.

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.

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.

Mrs Pamela Dobson - Co-opted Governor

Complaints, Literacy, Numeracy, School Improvement Committee

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.

Mr Brian Percival - LA Governor

Appeals, Complaints, Resources Committee, Headteachers Pay Review

I have had a 30 year career in Banking and my career trajectory includes a number of senior positions in Fund Management, Investment Banking, Commercial Banking and Retail Banking.

Throughout my career, I have always delivered honest, considered, and ‘best advice’ to all clients, at all times. As such, I have developed deep and long standing client relationships and I have established myself as a trusted advisor. I believe these principles and relationships are core to my current role as a Pan European Capital Markets Managing Director.

I am a fully committed team player and a dedicated team manager, leading by example.

I am willing to put my skill set to good use, meeting others in my local community with shared goals and seeing how governors can impact the school and those within it. I have a genuine desire and willingness to make a positive and important difference to the education of children in my area.

My wife and I have two children of our own, who are now in secondary school.
