Jason Toft - Chair of Governors
I have been a Governor at Oakhill Primary School for over 20 years, initially starting as a Parent Governor. I was appointed vice chair of governors in 2017 and became chair in September 2019.
I worked for Staffordshire County Council for over twenty five years in project management and transformation roles. In August 2019 I had a change of career and became an Investigative Officer for Staffordshire Police. I have two sons who have both attended Oakhill and have one grandson who is now attending the school. I care passionately about the staff and children of Oakhill Primary School and I will always strive to give them the very best.
Sharon May - Vice Chair of Governors
I have been the Principal at Packmoor Ormiston Academy since 2016, prior to that I was a headteacher at another local school in Stoke on Trent. I have worked in Education for over twenty years, predominantly in Stoke, Staffordshire and Cheshire. I became vice chair of the Governing Board in September 2021.
I am a staff governor at the school and have been since December 2019. I am a teacher in year six and I have been at Oakhill since September 2019 having taught for a previous 5 years at Norton Primary Academy. I lead English, reading and spelling for the whole school; English and maths are my main academic interests. I enjoy teaching reading and I’m passionate about developing a love of reading.
I am delighted to take up my first Governors role at Oakhill Primary School. I am currently Assistant Head Teacher and Curriculum Lead at Forest Park Primary School where I have worked for the last 20 years, with many wonderful youngsters and their families, in a range of roles. I am passionate about helping young people achieve their potential through education and ensuring youngsters have the best opportunities to succeed whilst growing into responsible and caring individuals. I am really looking forward to working with the children, staff and families within the school community.
