Mrs K Hartshorn Chair Co opted Governor

My eldest son went to Haresfield, my youngest son and daughter is still here.  With 20 years’ experience in the education and employment sector I feel I have a broad and balanced approach and wish to support the school in ensuring our children receive a fun and stimulating educational experience.

 Caroline Segelov – Foundation Governor

I have lived in the village for more than 20 years and both my children really enjoyed their school years at Haresfield. I work as a school nurse with responsibility for several primary and secondary schools; I am one of the church wardens of St. Peter’s church. I enjoy reading, listening to music, walking, yoga and spending time with my friends and family, especially the company of my very active 1 year old grandson.

Alec Jeakins – Ex Officio

I have been a Churchwarden at St Peter’s from June 20o8 and a Foundation Governor from October 2010. I was born & brought up in London. I worked in post- production in film & television until 1995 and have been a house husband since then. We moved to Gloucestershire in 1997. I served on the governing body of Wynstones Steiner Waldorf School 2000-2006.

I am a parent of three children: one is a graduate now working and the others are an undergraduate & a sixthformer. My wife teaches Mathematics in a Gloucester secondary school.

Mr Richard Wells – Curriculum Chair

As a teacher who has worked in Secondary Education for over twenty years I understand the important role a governor has in shaping the direction of a school in terms of curriculum, policy and the needs of all the pupils. As a parent with two children in the school I want to help and support all the excellent work the staff that provides my children with an outstanding environment to learn and explore new things.

 Louise Graham – Parent Governor

I am very passionate about the staff and the children (including both my sons) that attend Haresfield School and this is why I volunteered to be a governor.

I believe the skills I have learned working for Barclays for the last 23 years will enable me to be very effective parent governor.  I have covered many roles such as; leadership, performance coach and development, training, facilitation and administration in that time.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, volunteering in the community and supporting the schools PTFA.

I’m really looking forward to my time as a parent governor and thank you for voting for me.
