Anna Harris, Chair of Governors and Co-opted Governor

I first started volunteering as a Parent Governor in 2008. I am assistant manager of a local disability rights organisation, supporting adults who have a learning disability to speak up for themselves.  I also hold a Certificate in Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector.  I am passionate about making a difference and working together to give the children in our local community the very best start in life.

Wendy Olive, Vice-chair of Governors and Co-opted Governor

I have been a governor for over ten years, initially as a parent governor at Branksome Heath and later as a co-opted governor of the federation.  I have been volunteering at my daughters’ schools for the past 15 years and have taken a keen interest in their education.  I want to ensure that children from our local community have the best possible opportunities to be the best they can be and reach their full potential.

Carol Brown, Staff Governor

I am part of the admin team in the office at Livingstone Road Infant School.  I became a governor in 2008 and greatly enjoy the role of 'critical friend', providing both challenge and support to our Primary Federation. Through all the challenges that governance brings, I try to draw on my background in education and my experience as a parent in order to champion the people at the heart of the schools: the pupils and staff.

Diana Crisp, Co-opted Governor

I have been a governor since the federation began in 2015 and was a governor at Sylvan prior to that.  I am very committed to working for the federation and now with the Hamwic Education Trust.  I have been a teacher for 30 years, 23 of those in Poole.  I now work with student teachers linked to a university, and mentor them when they are on teaching practice.  This has helped me to keep up to date with new government policies.

Rhys Hatchard, Resources Committee Chair, Co-opted Governor

I first started volunteering as a governor in 2020. I am a CIPD qualified HR professional working in a well-known retail business, currently working specifically within supply chain and logistics developing/supporting people plans. I am also currently studying my Level 7 CIPD Diploma in HR management. Children are our future, so volunteering to support that future in my local community is why I became a school governor.

Diane Annear, Parent Governor

I first became a Parent Governor over ten years ago when my eldest son began his educational journey at what was then Sylvan First School. A firm believer that the education of our children is extremely important, I wanted to understand and contribute to the school, it's direction and every child's progress. My youngest son is now in Year 6 at Livingstone Road Junior School. I feel that I am able to bring parental perspective and representation to the Governing Body. I bring my workplace expertise in Health, Safety and Compliance to assist in the drive for continual review and improvement of the federation.
