Head Teacher - Mr Laws

It is a huge honour to be the Head Teacher at Hartside Primary School.  I was appointed in January 2013, and since then, along with rest of the school community, have worked hard to bring a lot of exciting changes to the school.

I love stories, my favourite author as a child was Enid Blyton.  I loved taking part in adventures of the Famous Five or climbing the Faraway Tree in the ‘Enchanted Wood’.  These days I still love adventure stories and I’ve recently read the Jack Reacher series of books by Lee Child.

I love my job and bringing new and exciting developments to the school if fantastic, but first and foremost I am a teacher and spending time learning with the children in school is what gives me the greatest pride. 

Away from school, I am sports mad.  I am a keen amateur runner, but I have also completed triathlons and climbed mountains.  I am a Scout Leader and I like nothing better than being outdoors and taking part in adrenaline filled activities like kayaking, abseiling and mountain biking.

I have a little boy called Thomas and a big German Shepherd called Kai and along with my wife Jacklyn we go on lots of adventures and days out.
