Helen Pease (Parent Governor)
I was appointed parent governor in October 2020. I am a member of the Resources and Premises Committee and Development Governor. I have a strong connection to the local area having grown up in Cheadle Hulme and attended Orrishmere Primary as a child. I returned to Cheadle Hulme in 2008 and have two daughters; my youngest attends Oak Tree in Year 4.
I am a qualified solicitor and worked in private practice in central Manchester for 13 years after qualification, specialising in defendant personal injury law. During this time, I worked extensively with schools and local authorities. I moved into education six years ago obtaining a Diploma in School Business Management and I am currently a School Business Manager at a three form entry primary school in Fallowfield. I have relished the challenges and opportunities this has brought and hope my experience in school finances and development as well my experience as a parent can support Oak Tree’s continued growth.
