Governors

Hayes School has an established Full Governing Body and Committees including a Finance and Buildings Committee (FB), and Teaching, Learning and Standards Committee (TLS).  The Board manages the business of the Trust and its focus is on the three core functions of governance:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction; 
  • Holding executive leaders to account for educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and 
  • Overseeing financial performance and making sure money is well spent. 
  • To send a message to any Governor, email clerk@hayes.torbay.sch.uk

My name is Nigel Williams and my main interest is to help people to be all they can be!

As a Minister of a Church in Exeter and also Chair of Governors at Hayes School I have the opportunity to impact on lives and to see both adults and children grasp hold of a future that encourages them to achieve, to be confident, and be self-assured in their ability.  We are fortunate to have the best teachers, teaching assistants, support staff and Governors, who give their all to making the School the best it can be and being cheerleaders for each child to succeed and be their unique self.  I am committed to doing all I can to help in this cause.

I have been a Governor for Hayes School for a year and it is a great opportunity to be part of such a strong school, seeing it in a different perspective to my current role as teacher in Reception.  I aim to bring my expertise as an Early Years practitioner to the board.

I have been in Education for over 18 years and a Reception Teacher at Hayes School for 3 years.  My prime aim is to provide a warm, fun and creative atmosphere in a stimulating environment where children feel secure, valued and encouraged to reach their full potential, celebrating their efforts and achievements. I aim to inspire and excite children’s imagination and I really love teaching and watching children grow in confidence, independence and ability.
