Chair of Governors - Nigel Gair

I have lived locally for the last ten years and have grown to understand the importance of of Darton Primary School to this community. Building on previous experience as Chair of Governors at a Primary School in North Yorkshire I was delighted to take up the role of Governor and then Chair of Governors at Darton Primary School in 2019. Professionally, I have recently retired from a career of 35 years in the Civil Service where I gained skills in understanding people as well as technical skills in Finance and HR. . Our children are our future and our role is to support, nurture and guide them to make their future the best possible.
