Meet the Governors

I have been a governor at Myland School for a number of years serving as parent governor and last year as a Local Authority governor as Vice Chair before being elected Chair in September 2014. I believe passionately in ensuring a place in a good/outstanding school for every child and I am delighted to lead a team of highly committed and skilled governors in ensuring that Myland offers the best possible education for all our children. Both my daughters are thriving at Myland Primary School.

 

I have been a secondary headteacher and Executive Principal for many years and currently work as the Regional Director of Education (East of England) for a large academy group. I am responsible for 15 primary, secondary and special schools in the East of England. I have worked as an Advisor for Essex County Council and I am an experienced Ofsted inspector and School Improvement Consultant.

 

I am always happy for parents to contact me to discuss any aspect of the school or how they can be involved. Please email me or send a letter into the school to get in touch.

I have lived in Myland for the last 8 years, and four of my five children currently attend Myland School.

 

I have always actively been involved in working with children initially through the Scouting and Guiding Associations, and more recently through volunteering in local schools and nurseries. Prior to raising my family, I initially worked as Office Manager for a number of local companies, before working for KPMG in London.

 

I believe Myland school has a lot to offer its pupils, and I have a long term invested interest as a Governor to support the Head Teacher and staff, to assist children achieve their full potential and to help ensure a positive future for the school.

My name is Sabina Hinchliffe and I am a new parent Governor.

 

I was keen on taking on a school parent governor role as I have two young children, one already in attendance of Myland School, and one soon to join.  I have always held an interest in being involved in school life and helping our local school to achieve all their aims and goals with parental support.

 

I have previously held roles in at the National Audit Office and Edexcel, both in business administration roles. I currently run my own small business as a Virtual PA company servicing local, London and International clients.

I worked full time for 20 years and decided to take a career break to raise my children.  I met my husband in my last job at a Japanese Bank in London and currently have two happy children at the school; a boy in KS1 and a girl in KS2. I put myself up for Parent Governor as I would like to have a better understanding of how the school runs and hope to help it reach its full potential. 

 

I plan to approach my role using the perspective of a professional and caring parent and will do my utmost to speak up for all parents and carers.

 

I am open-minded, non-judgemental and will ensure that I research all facts available and listen to all opinions; before making a decision. I have a positive outlook on life, I am approachable, a good listener and don't worry about things I have no control over; I save my energy for the things that I can change.

I have been involved with Myland School as Local Authority governor for four years. I joined the school PTA initially when my son began school, I then became governor a few months later which is something of which I am very proud.

 

I currently work for Care UK as Assistant to the HR Director where I have worked for 16 years. I am extremely privileged to be on the Board of Governors as we strive to get the best possible outcomes for the children of Myland. I wanted to be a Governor as making sure that Myland school progresses year in year out striving to be the best we can possibly be.
