Welcome, from the Chair of Governors
Children, Parents and Staff

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as your newly appointed Chair of Governors. I am excited about continuing my involvement with the ‘Broadacre Team’ and looking forward to supporting you all in your current and future journey to make Broadacre the best it can be.

As a long-serving governor of the school, I am fully aware of the difficulties and challenges that are part and parcel of life at the school but it was the success stories, strengths and exciting new projects that Mrs Staines has already shared with me that made me proud to be your Chair of Governors. From my previous visits to meet with the staff and recent governing body meetings, it is clear to see that the children here work very hard, enjoy their time at school and are a pleasure to work with.

If you have any comments, questions or concerns that you would like to share, please feel free to contact the relevant member of staff in the school as I do know that staff at Broadacre work hard to be proactive and approachable to all children and parents. If you would like to contact me please feel free to email me at

Nigel Hillary
