School governors support the strategic leaders of Hallbrook Primary School.  Governors provide robust challenge to school leaders and hold them to account for pupils' outcomes, but they also provide support to the Head Teacher and school.

An effective Governing Board has the opportunity to support children in their community to develop into confident, self-assured, resilient young people who leave school having experienced a good quality education that prepares them for all aspects of their life ahead.

Volunteering as a governor does take a time commitment - preparing for and attending meetings, additional school visits for monitoring purposes, writing reports, supporting interviewing for new staff, and of course, your own training and continuing professional development.

Phil Burton

Staff Governor

,I am a staff governor at Hallbrook having previously been a co-opted governor who sat on the Finance Committee, before I took on the role of School Business Manager. My experience is around Operational management having spent 16 years working in Retail Operations for a national retailer. My expertise are broad, ranging from Health and Safety, Human Resources, Leadership and Management, Project Management, Finance and Food Services Operations.

I am accredited with the Institute of Leadership and Management, Chartered Institute of Professional Development and the Institute of School Business Leaders which I see as areas which I can draw upon to support the school.

I am passionate about providing opportunities for all children both acedemic and vocational, and feel that I have a strong skill set to help the school achieve its potential.
