    I am an experienced school governor, who is delighted to be leading the governing board at Heathcote. I have been Chair since 2018, and a Community Governor since we opened. I work as an analytical manager at National Grid ESO and am married with two young children. My focus key areas are supporting the school’s senior leaders with coaching and mentoring, HR and the effectiveness of the governing board. I also take a keen eye in mathematics and Early Years. I also volunteer in scouting and am now leading on large-scale events for up to 4000 young people in Warwickshire, as well as supporting my local group and work on training adult volunteers

  • Mr Ben Moses

    Community Governor and Vice Chair

    I’ve been a Community Governor at Heathcote Primary School since 2018 and held additional responsibilities for Safeguarding since early 2019. I’m keen to ensure that every child has a safe and engaging environment where they can learn and grow. In my professional life I’m an Enterprise Solutions Architect for Amazon Web Services (AWS) and I get to use many of my professional skills to enable the school to grow and excel. I have a background in Science, Maths and Computing so will be looking to work with the school to volunteer my skills wherever I can.

  • Mr Mark Swift

    Community Governor

    As a local resident, I see Heathcote Primary School as an important part of our, relatively new, community and I am proud to have this opportunity as my first governor position. Having moved to the area in late 2017 I was keen to play an active part in supporting our community and I joined the board of governors in the second half of 2018. My focus areas are overseeing the school’s financial budgeting and supporting the leadership team through the joint creation and monitoring of key academic and development objectives.

    I work as a sales director for a large construction products company, live with my partner Clare, and between us we have three sons, two of which are at university. In my spare time I play bass guitar in 2 bands.

    I am delighted to introduce myself as one of the Parent Governors. I am father to three and my youngest attends Heathcote Primary, she started in 2019 shortly after we moved into Warwick Gates.

    I bring to the role a significant depth of experience in commercial property management, project management and commercial finance.
