Mr Malcolm Staley - Chair of Governors
Malcolm has remained as chair of governors at the school through the transition to an academy. His working life has been spent in local government, many years of which were at a senior management level, and he therefore has substantial experience in how schools work within the overall public sector environment.
As a grandparent to six children Malcolm believes passionately in children being given the opportunity for the best possible education as a precursor to their adult years.
Malcolm feels that the qualities that he brings to his role centre around support to the Head teacher and the school generally, organisation of the governors and their roles, monitoring the direction and progress of the school and listening to the views of parents.

I'm one of the parent governors and also the designated safeguarding governor. I have two children, one still at Breadsall Hilltop.

My name is James and I am one of the parent governors at Breadsall Hilltop Primary School and I have recently joined the Finance Committee.
My daughter attends Breadsall Hill Top Primary and my son will be attending in the next academic year, so I am keen to take up an active role in the life of the school. Making a contribution to the day to day running of the school is a pleasure and I am passionate about supporting the school and helping the school to be the very best it can. I enjoy helping in school where I can and I’ve recently helped out with KS2 SATs and school trips.
