I moved permanently into the village in 2008 when I retired from a career in the National Health Service. I have two children and two grandsons. Sidbury is a special village and I have serviced as Churchwarden at St Giles’ Church for 6 years. I enjoy being involved in the village activities; I am a member of the drama group and play badminton.  Being a Local Governor is an honour as I feel the school and the children are our future and it very special to be part of that ensuring they achieve the best.

I have been Clerk to the Local Governing Body of Sidbury Cof E Primary School for 4 years and am also Clerk for five other schools within The Primary Academies Trust.  I have two children and a keen interest in education – coupled with my administration skills I feel I am placed well to assist Governors hard work to achieve the best outcomes for children in this school.

Message from Charlotte Hill:

It is a privilege to be the Headteacher of Sidbury CE Primary School. As a member of Ventrus Multi Academies Trust I truly value partnership working. It is our belief that schools that work together within and beyond our Multi Academy Trust are stronger. They offer robust challenge and support to each other which enables our school leaders to provide both the highest quality educational provision to the children in their care, and preserve all that is unique and special about the local community that the school serves.
