Ms Michelle Corneby - Co Chair of Governors

School Improvement Committee

I am a parent governor and sit on the School Improvement Committee and attend the full Governing Body Board meetings.  I have three children, all of who either have or are attending Little Heath School, and this has enabled me to develop a deep understanding of the ethos the school takes to learning over a number of years.  I was born locally and have lived in Potters Bar all of my life so I have a strong sense of belonging to the local community and I’m keen to ensure the school and our children make a positive contribution to our environment.  On a personal level, 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 am now an owner of my own recruitment business. 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 ESG, which covers emotional well-being and sustainability: I would like to ensure they have the right foundation for the future.


Mrs Clare Cresswell - Co Chair of Governors

School Improvement Committee

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.

Mrs Kim Custis - Headteacher

School Improvement Committee, Resources Committee

As the head teacher, I am a full member of the governing body. I attend all board and committee meetings. I have been head teacher since January 2009. 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.

Mrs Asha Chandegra - Vice Chair of Governors

Training, Resources Committee

I have a passion for children's education and development and would like to use my skills to contribute to enriching the intellectual, emotional and social development of all pupils at Little Heath Primary School, building a strong foundation as they enter the next stage of their lives. I have worked for over 16 years in media and communications within commercial departments and am currently co-owner of 2 private montessori, forest school nurseries.





Mrs Pamela Dobson - Co-opted Governor

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

Chair of Resources Committee

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.
