A community governor/Vice Chair
Worked in education for over 30 years
Keen to see our children explore Halton, its history and all it has to offer now
Hi, my name is Peter Speakman. I am currently a parent governor here at Simms Cross Primary School. My responsibilities as a governor are health and safety and I am also the early year’s foundation stage governor. I am a parent governor and have 2 children in the school. I have been part of the governing body since 2011 and in that time I have been actively involved with the school as a volunteer in the early years and also as a governor at school. I believe the school has made progress in recent years and am very keen to see the school continue to make further progress as we aim to become an outstanding school.
I was born, raised and educated in Widnes. I spent a large part of my working life as a Day Service Officer for Halton Council caring for adults with severe learning disabilities.
I have always had a passion for the people and issues in my local community which resulted in my election as a member of Halton Council for Kingsway Ward in 2014. In the same year I was awarded the Queens Award for Voluntary Services for work with people with disabilities. My other main passion are my 5 grandchildren.
I have 3 children all of whom have attended Simms Cross. It was my close links with the school that led me to pursue a career as a Teaching Assistant. I was very fortunate to be able to undertake my training and Simms Cross and on completion was offered a post.
I was very eager to take up the opportunity of becoming a staff governor, when the position became available. I hope I can make a valuable contribution to the already strong team. A team that have had a positive impact on the education of my own children.
