School Governors




Welcome to Milton Hall Governors. We work very closely with our Head, Deputy Head & teaching & non teaching staff to ensure the safety, happiness & best all round education for all our pupils.


Our Governing Body is made up from parents, staff & local community members & our role is strategic planning & monitoring, working closely with our Head who, along with the leadership team, is responsible for the day to day running of the school.


Each Governor brings different skills, knowledge & experience to our Governing Body & each of us has our own area of responsibility and interest within the school.


All of us are completely committed to ensuring our school offers the very best possible outcome for every child, giving them all a firm foundation on which to build once they reach Secondary School and in later life.


We currently meet all together three times a term and also attend a variety of training and briefings throughout the school year.


Our current Chair, Dave Taylor, meets at least twice a month with our Head to ensure all is running smoothly.

Governor Pen Portraits

Johanna Bailey: I am an elected Staff Governor at Milton Hall.  I am a Class Teacher in Year 2, as well as being the Year Group Lead.  I am proud to work at Milton Hall because I strongly believe the children receive a fantastic education, as well as an amazing range of enrichment and extra-curricular activities.  The children are happy and well cared for, and really enjoy coming to school.  I look forward to being a useful link between the staff and the governing body.  In my spare time I am a Welcome Volunteer at Farleigh Hospice in Chelmsford, and I have two grown up daughters.




Miranda Reid 
I am currently serving as a Parent Governor and have a son in Year Two. As a former Milton Hall pupil myself I am committed to maintain the fantastic progress the school has made. I also have an interest in the provision for less abled children as my son has a hearing impairment. My background in the language recruitment industry gives me an additional insight into the diverse nature of the school, along with providing skills that the school can benefit from. As a Southend United supporter, you may find me and family at Roots Hall on occasion!
