Chair of Governors

Matthew Carlton
I was invited to join the governing team at Oakfield Park School in March 2021 and am a member of the standards committee.
Having grown up in the local area, I wanted to give back to our community by helping give children outstanding learning experiences and enjoyable times at school.
In addition to my responsibilities here, I am a governor at Hungerford School in Islington, a freelance consultant and investor, and enjoy running, making music, and games of all kinds!

Parent Governor

My name is Ann-Marie Sheard, I have been a parent governor at Oakfield Park for three years. My son is currently in Year 9 and loves school! I have been a governor at two other schools, both mainstream primary, and felt I would like to continue this role as Isaac moved schools. I consider myself very lucky to be Chair of Trustees of Wakefield and District Down Syndrome Support Group. I am also mum to five other children and a full time teacher in a mainstream junior school. In my spare time, I love to read, bake and spend time in my garden.
