Helen Hussey

Headteacher

My name is Helen Hussey and I have been the voting Headteacher Governor since January 2016. I live in Hull with my husband Stephen and our 18-year-old daughter, Bridie. I really enjoy the commute to the Nursery School, as it gives me a chance to relax and to appreciate the pretty scenery in the area.

I have worked in early years for over 20 years, firstly as an EYFS Leader in an East Riding school and for the last 9 years, as a Senior Leader for Hull Local Authority Early Years Advisory Team.

I am passionate about giving all children the very best start in their education and strive to ensure this happens at the Nursery School.

I very much enjoy spending time with family and friends, travel, films and the occasional spa day!

Chris Storr

Co-opted Governor

My name is Chris Storr and I joined the governing body in September 2016.

I live in Hull with my husband Colin, and our grown-up children live close by. My granddaughter will be starting in Year One in September and I am pleased to say that she has had a very positive start to her school life because of the dedication of the Foundation Stage practitioners she has met along the way.

I have been a qualified teacher since 1975 and spent 37 years in the classroom, all but 6 in Early Years. For the last 4 years I have been a Senior Leader for Hull Local Authority Early Years Advisory Team. I passionately believe that Early Years is truly the foundation stone for future learning and for developing well-rounded individuals who can cope with the demands of modern day living. As I am reaching the end of my career, I want to continue to be involved in the field that is so significant in all of our lives.

My husband and I own a caravan and we enjoy weekend breaks where we can explore the countryside and the coast. We enjoy walking and cycling and fortunately own some very good waterproof clothing and foot wear!
