Governors in School Day

Mick McCarthy, our HSQE & Sustainability Director, provides voluntary
professional assistance as a Co-operative Governor to the school’s Board of Governors at Deanesfield Primary School in South Ruislip, Middlesex.

The head teacher is delighted with Mick’s support and commented:

It has been my pleasure to work with Mr Mick McCarthy as a member of our school Governing Body for a period in excess of ten years. Mick has many skills and brings to the Board much more than the perspective of a parent and local resident. He has a vast knowledge of personnel, recruitment, health and safety, procurement, and safeguarding policies and practices that he has developed in his working life.

Mick gives generously of his time to support the governing body in improving this school and providing the best teaching and learning opportunities for our children. Mick has good financial acumen and is resourceful. He challenges and holds leaders to account for their decisions as well as offering support, advice and guidance.

As a Headteacher I have highly valued his input, especially regarding aspects of school leadership for which I have had no training, such as building, premises and maintenance. I am extremely grateful for his continued support.

Yours faithfully,
Ms K O’Sullivan,
Head teacher
Deanesfield Primary School

Mick is very proud to support this fantastic school and contribute to the future growth and social well-being of its children. “It has been a real pleasure and honour to help share my knowledge and experience with the children and staff over the years to help drive continuous improvement within the school learning environment.”
