Meet the Governors
Chair of Governors: Simon Davies
I am proud to be Chair of Governors at Marsh Hill. I joined the governors as a Local Authority Governor in September 2011 and became Vice chair in September 2013. I became the Chair of Governors in September 2016. I am the link governor with specific responsibility for Behaviour.
I was a primary school teacher in Birmingham schools for 25 years and currently am a senior lecturer at Birmingham City University where I help to train the next generation of primary school teachers. This has afforded me some amazing experiences including the opportunity to teach in China.
I have two children one of whom is at University and the other is in the sixth form. Away from work I enjoy photography, walking (and over the last few years I have climbed ten of the tallest mountains in Wales) travel and, most importantly rugby and am a committee member at Sutton Coldfield Rugby Club.
Staff Governor: Cathy Lomas
My name is Cathy Lomas, and I represent the Support the Staff as part of the Governing Body at Marsh Hill Primary School. I believe education is the key to our children's success - it is an intrinsic part of every child's life and the route to their personal success.
As a governor I am part of a group of experienced members of your community who provide the strategic friendships to the school to ensure children are well looked after in every sense. I am also a parent and I love my children - they are the route of my madness but are also the reason I smile every day! My working background has predominantly been in health and welfare.
I began my working career at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital as a Nurse and for the last fifteen years I worked in schools for the NSPCC and then as Pastoral Manager at Marsh Hill.
Parent Governor: Sarah MacNulty
Hello, my name is Sarah MacNulty and have been a governor here at Marsh Hill after being appointed in December 2015.
I have two children at the school in Year 2 and Year 6. I am currently a full time mum to my 2 year daughter.
I have previously worked in the education sector as a Teaching Assistant for eight years, so have a good knowledge of the school system. I am very keen to make a positive difference to the life chances of the pupils at Marsh Hill.
In my spare time I like to spend time with my family, going out and about around Birmingham and sometimes further afield. I am also a keen runner and often swim and ride my bike, competing in the occasional triathlon!
