Welcome from the Chair of Governors


My name is Keith Miles and I am the Chair of Governors at Spire Juniors and on behalf of the school would like to welcome you all to our Webpage.

First, I would like to say what a great job the new Headteacher David Shaw is doing for the school “new head new ideas” certainly springs to mind.  I fully support the changes and new introductions he has already made and those he is making especially those that bring in and involve the parents and guardians.

I became Chair of Governors in 2014 when the previous Chair moved away for work purposes. I live in Grangewood and am a Chesterfield Borough Councillor for the Rother Ward which the school sits in. I have been a Councillor since 2011 and have worked with many of the children’s parents and guardians so I do know the area very well.

I am Chair of Langer Field Park Community Group which has just won a very substantial bid to put play equipment on the park. The children of Spire Juniors had a huge part in as they provided 113 letters of support and were heavily involved in the consultation of what play equipment would be going on the field.

I am part of the group which was instrumental in setting up the very popular Gussie’s Kitchen, a project run by local volunteers for local people who for a donation of £2.50p adults, 50p 5-15years and U/5’s free will receive a 3-course meal whilst socialising with others. The school also has very strong ties with the project by providing them with the food from their Harvest Festival and the choir carol singing at their special Christmas dinner.

I am at the moment looking at setting up “Friends of Spire Juniors” a committee where the Parents or guardians can raise money for the school and then have a say in what we can spend the money on. If you are interested in serving on this committee please contact the head with your details and he will pass them on to me.
