Governors (Members and Trustees)

The Governors at Hayes School are committed to supporting the school's vision of creating and maintaining a happy but rigorous learning environment where everyone tries to “be all you can be” in everything they do.

We will achieve this vision by having a robust governance framework and procedures to ensure the school is suitably supported and challenged to achieve the vision.

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

The Members' Annual General Meeting will be held on Thursday 25th July at 4.30pm

I am also the Vice Chair of Governors.  I am proud that three of my children have attended Hayes (two are still on roll) and I am motivated to ensure the school is providing the very best opportunities for their education. I am a qualified teacher and currently work in the management team at South Devon College.   If you would like to know anything more about the role of Governors you can email me via: 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.
