Welcome to the Governing Body section of the website. The aim is to provide information on the role of the Governing Body and to help you to become more familiar with all the governors and the statutory duties by which we are legally bound.  The profiles have been written by the governors themselves and should help everyone get to know the governors a little more.

All Governors are contactable via the School Office, or by email to except where indicated below.  You can contact the Chair of Governors directly on  We also encourage parents to tell us how they perceive the school through Parent View. We are always keen to hear your views and if you wish to discuss anything with the Governors then please do not hesitate to contact us. We hope that this section will help you to understand better what we do, who we are and why we are serving as Governors.

The Governing Body's register of business and personal pecuniary interests can be viewed HERE.

Co-opted Governor; Chair of Governors, Chair of the Teaching and Learning Sub-Committee; ​Inclusion/SEND Governor; Science Link, Headteacher Appraisal Governor

Date appointed: 01/09/21 by governing election

Term of office:31/08/25

My child left Greystones last year after seven happy and successful years. I grew up in Sheffield and have lived in S11 on and off since my early teens so I have a natural affinity for the local area and a desire to see the community thrive. Over the last twenty years I have worked in schools in South Yorkshire, Derbyshire and London, initially as a secondary school science teacher and more recently as a teaching assistant and cover supervisor in primary and secondary schools respectively. I now work as a Specialist Learning Mentor for Higher Education students with additional learning needs. I have a personal and professional interest in matters related to SEND, with particular insights into Autism Spectrum Conditions.

Heather Scott

Co-opted Governor; Chair of School Improvement Committee

Date appointed: 01/09/21 by governing body election

Term of office:31/08/25

I have worked in education since graduating – first as a primary school teacher in Manchester and London, and then later in the initial teacher training sector. I have worked for the education charity Teach First for the last decade, focusing on the most disadvantaged pupils in our society. I’m an experienced school governor and I continue to hold a governorship in a London secondary community school too. I will soon be starting a new role at the Department for Education. I have a young family, and we relocated from East London to Sheffield early in 2021. I believe that being a school governor is one of the most important voluntary roles available, and I’m keen to serve my new local community by working closely with Greystones Primary School.

I’m officially French, Greek, and now also British, having lived in the UK almost continuously since 1997. I currently work as an academic (in politics and international relations) at Loughborough University, where I have also held numerous admin roles, both operational and strategic. We moved to Sheffield in 2019. Our kids currently attend Greystones Primary School. Both the school and the wider community have been welcoming and supportive. It's an honour to give a little back to the community by serving as governor for the school.

Date appointed: 23/10/19 by parental election

I am a mum to four children, 3 of whom are at Greystones. I grew up in S11 and have lived in the Greystones area for 10 years. It's a lovely community and I'm pleased to be able to make a contribution to the school at the heart of it. Before I had children, I worked in school finance for Sheffield City Council, training school office staff and governors. I have a personal interest in the arts and music, so I hope to be a champion for those in my time as a governor.

I’m a parent of two children currently at Greystones and as a governor I’m glad to be able to contribute back to the school.

I work as a Producer on education and engagement projects and currently work for an organisation that supports children in the UK and around the world to develop their digital skills. I previously worked at the BBC, most recently in the Education department on a range of programmes and campaigns.
