Governing Body

Governor Pen Portraits

Hayley Middleton

Chair of Governors

I have been a parent governor at Aston Lodge for 12 years and have served as the Chair of Governors for the last 3.  I have three children who have all attended Aston Lodge Primary.  I am currently working as a Teaching Assistant in a Special Educational Needs School in Sheffield.  I therefore understand the importance of ensuring the school meets every child’s educational needs and removes barriers to learning.

As the chair of Governors, it is my role and responsibility to ensure that all children can access the best possible education that they deserve.  I am passionate about ensuring that this happens by providing strategic decision making with the Head Teacher, the Governing Body and Senior Leadership Team.  It is important that the standards of Teaching and Learning are maintained throughout school and identify any areas that require improvement through the schools improvement plan.  Both myself and the Governing body strive to ensure that we do the very best for all our children, their families and stakeholders at Aston Lodge Primary School.

Teaching and Learning, Student Progress

I have been a secondary school maths teacher for 12 years and currently work as an Assistant Principal at The Gainsborough Academy; part of Wickersely Partnership Trust.  First and foremost, I’m a teacher who still loves being in the classroom; teaching and supporting students to achieve successful, preparing them for their future.  I truly believe that high-quality teaching and learning is the most important aspect of school improvement and have always been committed to developing this on all levels in order to support student progress and school outcomes.  I look forward to supporting and working with Aston Lodge Primary as a Governor leading on T&L and Student Progress.
