Helping Children progress and succeed

The Governing Body of Hartside Primary School has a strong

focus on its three core strategic functions:


  1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  2. Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and
  3. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

Mrs Emma Blackett - Parent Governor

Mrs Elaine Mills - Staff Governor

I have been a Staff Governor at Hartside Primary for about a year and have worked within the school for three years as a Teaching Assistant. I have three children, two grown up sons and one daughter, they have all attended Hartside. Before I came to the school I worked as a Pharmacy Checking Technician for eighteen years. I really enjoyed my job in pharmacy but my real passion was to work with children, so I decided to take the plunge and retrain. I’m so pleased I did as it’s such a rewarding and satisfying job to do.

I know what a dedicated and hardworking team we have here at Hartside and I am very proud to be part of it.

Miss Carrie Jackson - Co-Opted Governor

I am a co-opted (previously community) governor at Hartside, I now also have two children in the school.

I feel strongly that we all should contribute to our local community in order to create a better place for our children to grow and prosper. I have seen many positive changes since I joined the governing body and I am very proud of our school and all of the staff and children within it.

I look forward to continuing and contributing to the Schools journey to achieve recognition as the outstanding school we all know it is.
