Meet the Staff
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’.
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 do a sport called triathlon which involves swimming, cycling and running one after another. I have recently been selected to compete for Team GB, of which I am very proud. I am really keen to help all of our children develop an active and healthy lifestyle, so I aim to ensure there are always lots of sporting clubs and activities available and everyone gets the opportunity to take part.
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.
