About our Governors
I have been a Governor at various schools for just over 30 years, and a teacher for 27. I taught in Alfreton from 2001 to 2007 and then moved to be Headteacher at an infant and nursery school near Derby. I retired in July 2019. I joined Mickley Governing Body in 2019 as a Local Authority Governor. I am passionate about children’s learning, especially in the Early Years when so many foundations for later life are established. It’s great to be involved at Mickley where the happy, family feel is so important. I wanted to be able to carry on making a difference to children’s education in Derbyshire after I retired and I feel really lucky to be able to do that at Mickley.
My name is Helen Elliff and I am one of the Sunflower class teacher’s at Mickley Infant School. I currently teach nursery and reception children with ages ranging from 2-5years. I began my teaching career at Warwick University, and then completed my NQT year in a Reception class at a Birmingham school. In 2012 I moved to Derbyshire where I started teaching Year 1 and 2 at Mickley Infant School. Within the last 8 years I have become a parent myself, as well as change my role within school several times. I now look forward to supporting Mickley Infant School as staff Governor..
My name is Sara Street and I have been Headteacher at Mickley Infant and Nursery School for fourteen years. I have been a teacher for 27 years and trained in Lancashire before moving to a very large first school in Kent where I taught Year 4 children. I moved back to Derbyshire 15 years ago to become Deputy Head at Wirksworth Federation of Infant Schools before taking up Headship at Mickley Infant and Nursery School. I enjoy working with children, parents and the wider community, helping children to aspire to being the best that they can be.
My name is Bianca Coombes. I live within the local community and I am currently a stay at home mum to my 2 daughters who attend Mickley infant and nursery school. I have a level 3 childcare qualification and worked in a private nursery for 6 years. I have always enjoyed working with children and helping them achieve their goals by providing an enabling environment. Being a governor means I still get to be part of helping children get the best start in life.
