Barnes Farm Infant School

Building Futures, Inspiring Success

Heidi Hards


I became a Governor of the School in September 2015 and have since taken on the role of Chair of Governors to provide additional support to the Governing Body, School, Pupils and Parents.

I am also the Safeguarding Governor and work with the School to ensure children in education are kept safe from harm and ensure the safeguarding agenda is embedded in the ethos of our school.

I currently have children at the Infant and Junior school and as one of the leaders of the local Scouting Group I know and see many of the parents and pupils within the wider community. I believe that working together we can help the school to continue to thrive and improve to provide all children with the opportunity to gain the best possible education and the means to reach their full potential.

I am a full time working mum with a legal background. I currently work as a Compliance and Enforcement Officer with the Gambling Commission, having previously worked with the Intelligence Service and Essex Police. I believe my skill can assist the Governing Body to ask the difficult questions and challenge procedures and policy to ensure the school is the very best it can be both for the pupils that attend and the staff that work there.

I am very proud to be part of the Governing Body, I hope that this is my way of paying back to the community I have been a part of for 22 years and I am always open to a good chat with any parent that has any comments or concerns they wish to raise.
