“On behalf of the governing body I’d like to welcome you to the updated Marfleet Primary School website. The website has been completely overhauled and I hope that you will agree that it provides parents with more and better information and will be updated daily as necessary to alert parents to events taking place, letters coming home etc.

In addition we hope it gives a flavour of the school’s ethos for those who are thinking of registering their children to join our school community. As governors we work with staff to ensure that every child achieves his or her potential. We have high expectations of all – from behaviour, which sets the tone of the school, to academic achievement. Continuous improvement is what we strive for and the excellent results achieved in KS2 in recent years together with improving outcomes throughout the school demonstrate this well.

However we believe education does not only take place in the classroom and we therefore work to ensure that we enrich the learning experience of pupils with regular curriculum related excursions outside the school as well as a good range of extra-curricular activities – sports teams, clubs etc.

We are also particularly proud of the fact that responses from pupil and parent questionnaires consistently highlight how much children enjoy school and feel it to be a safe environment. This is also recognised by Ofsted who in their 2013 inspection report identified as a strength that “pupils feel safe and secure in school and trust the staff to help them when they have concerns”. We are a small close community and value the supportive atmosphere we provide to enable your children to thrive and achieve their potential.”


Ms M Shillito
Governor in charge of Numeracy and Languages
I live in East hull and have been a governor with Marfleet Primary since December 2016.  I have 2 grown up children who both went to both primary and secondary schools in Hull.  I took a keen interest in their schooling and when the opportunity arose wanted to contribute to the development and wellbeing of our younger generation.
I retired from full time employment in July 2016 having worked for Humberside Police for almost 30 years; I worked in a financial and HR Resource Planning role.  The skills accrued in these 2 key areas of work are, I believe, a suitable match for supporting Marfleet Primary in its everyday work and its continued development under Academy status.
I am responsible for link subjects of Numeracy, I have always enjoyed working in this area and I am learning a whole new way of teaching key skills; a long way from my school days of reciting time tables every morning.  My other link area is Languages, I have really enjoyed sitting in class with the children trying to improve my rusty skills.
During the last 18 months I have really enjoyed going back to school and hope to continue my association with Marfleet Primary into the future.

Governor in charge of PSHE, Religious Education & Governors Training

Mrs D Quigley
Chair of Governors


Governor in Charge of Geography & History 

After serving a long period as a Hull governor at a local secondary school, I took a break before joining Marfleet’s governing body in 2009. I have had links with the school for many years in my employment as HR Manager with Fenner at the factory adjacent to the school, so was pleased to be approached to join the school’s governing body.

I was elected to the post of Chair of Governors in 2011 and am a member of both the committees (Curriculum & Standards and Finance & Personnel) through which we conduct the majority of governors’ business.

As the mother of two daughters now in their 20s in whose education I always took a close interest and involvement, I enjoy this opportunity to make a contribution to the development of the next generation through their school years.

Mr P Hussey
Parent Governor

Governor in charge of Health & Safety, Early Years & PE

“I am one of the parent Governors at Marfleet Primary School. With a daughter currently in year three and a son in FS2.  I have a vested interest in ensuring the school is doing the right thing by its pupils and their parents/carers.
My role involves attending regular meetings with representatives from the school and other Governors to be informed about, discuss and question issues affecting the school, how it performs, what is does well and what challenges it faces.
I am also responsible for link subjects where I go into the school and talk to the lead staff about what they are doing to ensure our children are being taught in a positive learning environment and to provide an ‘outside of school’ perspective on how that looks to us as parents. My link subjects are PE, Health & Safety and Early Years Foundation.”
Mr N Anthony
Vice Chair of Governors

Governor in charge of Literacy, SEN & Attendance

“I live in East Hull and have been a Governor for a number of years. I am currently the Vice Chair. I have in the past served on the governing bodies of Malet Lambert, David Lister, Gillshill Primary and the White House.

I have worked at Hull City Council as a Social Worker and Manager with experience in working with Children, Minority Ethnic Groups and Adults. I have been a Lecturer in Social Work at the University of Lincoln, Board Member of Humberside Probation Trust and currently serve as a Magistrate in Hull

I bring skills in problem solving, planning, human resources and working within a team. I applied to become
a Governor because I believe in helping our children to gain the best possible all round education and that this is a partnership with parents. I have special interest in safeguarding and special education needs.”

Miss S Anderson

‘I have been appointed as a Co-opted Governor at Marfleet and this is my first role as a school Governor. My role as a Governor involves oversight of Science and Computing at the school. I am also a member on the Finance and Personal Committee.

I have a keen interest in the school, which my niece and nephew both attend, and I want to make sure that they and their fellow pupils have the best education available to them.

I work for Hull City Council within their regeneration team and have previously worked on redeveloping the city’s Secondary and Special schools. In my current role, I am working on redevelopment projects that will deliver improvements for Hull as part of our year as UK City of Culture.’
