Governor Profiles

Sarah Haines

I am the Chair of Governors at Loughborough Primary School. I have been part of the Governing Board since 2016 and am proud to work for our school and support the ongoing development of our children both academically and personally. As Chair I serve on the Resources and Teaching & Learning Committees.

For work, I am an Operations Director at Amazon Web Services (AWS), Amazon’s technology business. I’ve spent most of my career leading Business Operations/Strategy teams in both very large and small companies and find the skills learnt in my profession of benefit to my role as a Governor and Chair of Loughborough Primary School.

I work closely with our Headteacher, Laura McPhee, and the rest of the Senior Leadership Team to offer supportive challenge to their decision making, always ensuring we are putting the interests of the children at Loughborough Primary School first.

As for my day job, I’m a Civil Servant at the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy. In recent times, I’ve been a negotiator on the UK’s trade agreement with the European Union, and am currently focused on the implementation of that deal. The Civil Service supports its people in volunteering in their communities, and I’ve been keen to make the most of that at our school. My career has pretty much always involved providing scrutiny, analysis and advice, which I do my best to turn to the benefit of Loughborough Primary School.

I joined the Governing Board at Loughborough Primary School in September 2020. As well as serving on the Resources and Teaching & Learning Committees, I also have oversight of the school's safeguarding and SEND provision.

I am immensely proud to work for our school and its remarkable community of staff, parents and pupils. I feel passionately about supporting the ongoing development of our children in order to provide them with the very best possible start in life.   

For work, I am a fintech and payments lawyer at Travers Smith, which is a City law firm. I spend most of my days (and sometimes nights) advising large companies on complex legal and regulatory issues. This experience has proved incredibly helpful in my role as a Governor of Loughborough Primary School, as I have been able to rely on a number of transferable skills (the most important of which include the ability to quickly identify and assess risk, as well as sound judgment and common sense).

Outside of work, I am a sports fanatic and still manage to play competitive football and cricket. I have also recently taken up trail running, which seems to defy any sort of sound judgment or common sense!

I am a LA Governor at Loughborough Primary school with special responsibility for the PE and Sports Premium and Premises, Health and Safety. I am a long- standing governor who served as Chair for six years until 2020.

I am a retired social worker with an understanding of how the school provides both a stimulating education for our children and a valuable source of social support through its links with community resources and statutory provision. This has been highlighted by our response to the Covid- 19 pandemic.
