Governing Body Membership and Profiles

Find out a little bit more about your Governors and what their motivation was for becoming a volunteer for the school. 





   David Hughes    -   Your Chair of Governors [LA] and Year 6 Link Governor


"It has been a privilege to have been voted in as Chair of Governors at Glyncoed Primary School. I worked in the local community for several years and currently employed by Waitrose, married with a young child of my own. 


I have a strong belief in democracy and inclusion, and feel that I can add a commercial dynamic to the Governing Body.  I am focused on the need for high quality education and the strong benefits that this can bring everyone in society.

It is clear to me that the team in Glyncoed have a passionate Governing Body who put the welfare of its pupils and staff first.

Our role within the community is a great responsibility but one that I know the governors of Glyncoed and myself strive to develop."


Ceri Veysey    -   Your Vice Chair [LA] and Nursery Link governor

It’s a genuine pleasure and a privilege to work as the vice chair for Glyncoed Primary school. 

Our two youngest children – now in their twenties - both attended the school so our family feels a longstanding belonging to the school community.

I’ve been with the governing body from the beginning and it never ceases to be hugely rewarding to apply my professional skills and my experience as a parent of thirty-two years, to give back to the local community.

I additionally undertake work for Cardiff council, other Cardiff schools and the Central South Consortium as an ad hoc Independent Investigating Officer pertaining to school governance scrutiny or disciplinary investigation.   I also frequently sit as the Independent Governor on Resolution and Disciplinary Panels throughout Cardiff.

There really is no substitute for a high quality education and school life should inspire children to be the best that they can be.  Every child has potential, and part of my role as a governor is to support Glyncoed in further improving the impressive standards that our amazing pupils achieve."



Jack Coles [Community] and Year 1 & 3 Link governor

"I am currently the branch manager at Teaching Personnel Supply Agency. I manage a team of 4 consultants in primary staffing and my role is to drive high performance whilst ensuring the branch is providing the highest quality of service to both schools and candidates.  I have worked alongside Glyncoed Primary School for 4 years, supporting staffing needs as well as volunteering as a teaching assistant. I am very passionate about being a Governor and the school and look forward to working with and contributing to the local community."


  Jacky Brockway [Local Authority] and Year 5 Link governor


"I am into my fifth year as a governor and am delighted to be part of the Glyncoed School Family.   Now that I am retired, I look forward to continuing my role, with a hope to increasing my involvement.  


The Awards and Accolades that the school has received, and continues to strive towards, makes me very proud to be associated with Glyncoed Primary."



Sue Matthews [Community] and Year 4 & 5 Link governor


Sharon Hulley [Community] and Year 4 Link governor

As a previous parent governor with twin girls who were in Glyncoed from nursery until they left Year 6 nearly two years ago, I am very pleased to have now joined the Governing Body as a Community Governor.  I am proud to be part of the Governing Body to support the fantastic work of the headteacher and her staff, which is reflected in the work ethos and dedication from teaching staff and the contribution of the fantastic pupils at Glyncoed.


I have worked at the University Hospital of Wales for the past 27 years and I am currently the Lead Macmillan Skin Cancer Clinical Nurse Specialist. I am passionate about sun safety within schools especially as childhood sun exposure and the risk of developing skin cancer in later life has been well documented.   I also really enjoy teaching and have a PGCE in adult education.


I have a strong belief in equality and fairness and I constantly strive to uphold this ethos in my personal and professional life and feel it is an important part of school life at Glyncoed.  I also believe that the pupils’ voice is very important and I am very pleased that this is something that is prominent within Glyncoed.  I look forward to my role as a Community Governor and helping the school maintain their high standards.


Claire Thomas [Parent] and Year 3 Link governor

"My son is currently a student in Year 3 and I have been a Parent Governor since 2018.  When my son started school, I wanted to become involved in a way that would positively contribute to Glyncoed Primary and be able to have a voice in matters relating to the school.   

Becoming a parent governor has enabled me to do this. 

I am passionate about child development and early years education, having previously worked as a Teaching assistant, and studying psychology at university where I selected child and developmental psychology as topics. 

I currently work full time in adult safeguarding, and am committed to being a critical friend of Glyncoed Primary.”
