Message from the Chair of Governors


“On behalf of the Governing Body, a warm welcome to Oldfleet Primary School.

Here, governors, staff, parents and children work as a team, and we understand that communication is vitally important when working together. I hope that this website provides some useful information and a sense of life at Oldfleet Primary School.

The team of governors are volunteers who give their time to ensure that the long term vision and school policies are followed carefully to ensure that the children are inspired to learn in a safe, happy, creative and challenging environment. The Governing Body has a range of duties and responsibilities to enable them to hold the senior leaders to account, seek external views of the school and use a range of information to set the strategic direction. Parent governors are a very important part of our team, if you are interested in becoming a governor or would like to contact us, we would be very happy to hear from you.”

Kind regards

Chris Storr

My roots are in East Hull, I was born here, went to school here and spent 37 years out of a teaching career of 41 working in local schools.I started volunteering as a governor in 2013 and am now on 3 governing bodies, I am learning all the time and enjoy working hard for young children and their families.I currently look after my grandchildren three days per week, the eldest attends a primary school and this certainly gives me a greater insight into a parent/ carer's perspective.

I have taught in Hull for a number of years across all three primary stages. I truly love my job! Helping raise children's self-esteem and giving them the skills to better themselves is a privilege. This is my fifth year teaching at Oldfleet Primary School and I still marvel at the enthusiasm, talent and potential that comes through our doors each day. During my time at Oldfleet, I have worked hard to be involved with as many aspects of the school community as possible, from leading Science to celebrating local festivals, supervising overnight trips and overseeing Shakespeare productions.

Gunter Scheidt

Role: Co-opted Governor

Business Interests: None

I immigrated to the UK in 2014 with my family to seek new opportunities and build a life here. Since then I have been through college, completed my degree, started my career in banking and started a family. After finishing college I was the Student Union President and Student Governor at Chesterfield College for two years.Becoming a Governor for me is an opportunity to play a part in shaping the school to best serve the pupils, staff and local community. While I also see it as an opportunity to get to know the school system ahead of my own children going to school.As a Governor I believe I can bring value as someone who has attended school outside of the UK and experienced various forms of educations. I also bring a strong analytical mindset and a desire to always find a way to do things better.

From there I moved onto working in Retail and Customer Service.I wanted to become a Governor because I love Oldfleet Primary School and I want to bring my skills from Customer Service over, I love a challenge and I want to help the School excel.
