Nicola Chinnery

Chair of Governors

My name is Nicola and I am currently the Deputy Headteacher at a large, local primary school. I
began my teaching career in 1998 and have worked in an infant, lower and primary school. I have
been in my current role for five years and have day-to-day responsibility for Foundation stage and
KS1. I am also responsible for the curriculum and improvement of standards across the whole
school. I spend time looking at current research, finding out about different approaches and then
implementing change in the school – this has resulted in a very positive impact in school standards in
Maths and writing, along with a reduction in teacher workload. I am passionate about the
development of education and helping all children achieve their full potential. This passion is one of
the reasons I would like to become a governor at another school. All children are entitled to the
best life chances.


I have previous experience of being on the governing body as a staff governor. Currently, I attend
governor meetings at my school to present pupil progress and attainment data, share curriculum
updates and answer the questions posed by the governing body, which are often challenging and
require in-depth responses and explanations. I feel that my extensive experience and knowledge of
primary education and leadership would be a benefit in the role of a governor. I firmly believe that
my career has equipped me with a wide range of skills that will enable me to make a positive
contribution to Richmond Hill.


Outside of work, I enjoy walking with my Labrador puppy called Hector. I love visiting London and
going to the theatre. It has been known for me to see two musicals in a day!


I am looking forward to working with the staff, children and families within the Richmond Hill
community.
