Wildmoor Heath School



Meet the Governors


Mr Paul Agate

I have been a parent governor since summer 2019.  I am a proud father of two daughters who attend the school in years 4 and 6.  

In my professional life I have a 22 year career in Food Retail and I am currently a Store Manager for Sainsbury's supermarkets as well as being a Board Director and Vice Chair for a Business Improvement District. 

I have gained a vast amount of skills and experience during my professional career which I believe will help me be an effective Governor."

Mrs Sue Attfield

I have been working in the office at Wildmoor Heath School for over 10 years and am proud to be a staff member of a unique, caring community school.  I became a staff governor in 2018 and I enjoy being part of a team helping the school on its journey to be the best and to provide an all-round education for the children.


I live in Crowthorne and when not in the School Office, I enjoy exploring, travelling and spending time with my family,  especially with my two daughters.

Mrs Becci Leach

I am in my eighth year of teaching at Wildmoor Heath and am a member of the Senior Leadership Team.  As a governor I have a specific interest in staff welfare.  Outside of school I love music (both playing and teaching) and I have recently taken up indoor climbing.

Mrs Chloe Mietle

As a paramedic team leader I look after patients as well as staff. This supports my role as a governor where I have a particular passion for safeguarding, as this is crucial for all our children at Wildmoor Heath.  Other activities I enjoy include travel and (when the weather is nice) the odd triathlon.

 Mrs Karen Roche

After many years of teaching in local secondary schools and working as an Education Adviser for a local authority, I am now working independently as an education consultant. In this role, I have worked on many OfSTED inspections and work closely with schools in challenging circumstances. 

My son and daughter were both educated locally and it gives us great pleasure to watch them, and their many friends, grow into successful young adults. Crowthorne is a great community for a family to grow up in and I am delighted to take part in the continuing development of Wildmoor Heath Primary School.

Mr Chris Salt

I was appointed as a Community Governor at Wildmoor Heath School in November 2011 and undertook the role of Vice Chair from October 2012 to October 2013.

I have worked in education for some 39 years, as a teacher of Design and Technology, Music and ICT and also as a LA Schools’ Adviser and Ofsted Inspector. As I quickly move towards retirement age, I am currently enjoying a part time teaching role at Sandhurst School teaching Design and Technology courses at both GCSE and A Level.

I have two children, who were educated locally in Yateley. During their schooling, I always took an active interest in their respective schools, offering time and support and participating in many parent events.

As a Governor, I am committed to providing the best educational opportunities for all children at Wildmoor Heath School.

 Mrs Leslie Semper

I am very honoured to be the Headteacher at Wildmoor Heath School and to sit on the Governing Body. I have been a Headteacher in three different schools and enjoy working with governors and our wonderful staff to achieve the best possible outcomes for our young learners. Wildmoor Heath is a unique school in a superb position right on Wildmoor heathland. We take pride in offering our pupils a rich and balanced curriculum, which includes personal development of each child’s ‘cultural capital’ through an extensive list of opportunities, school visits, residential trips, outdoor learning and our community partnerships. Working with governors is a key part of our work to ensure that our provision is the best possible.

When not in school, I enjoy The Great Outdoors - walking with my border collies, cycling and kayaking. I also enjoy Scottish Country Dancing and live music.

 Mr Cliff Thompson

I have been a governor at the school for 20 years, originally a local authority appointment. I was a Bracknell Forest Councillor from 1997 to 2019 when I stood down. I am now a Crowthorne Parish Councillor.

I am a retired solicitor.

 Mr Ben Wickins

I have been a co-opted governor since February 2017 and really enjoy helping WHS to continue supporting and challenging the students. Coming from a family of teachers, I have always had a passion for schools and teaching so although I am relatively new to the role, I have been talking and learning about education and school governance for a long time! Not having any children in the school means that I can consider, advise and decide based on what is presented by Ms Semper and the excellent teachers at Wildmoor Heath.

In my day job, I am a management consultant working mostly in London. My wife and I can often be spotted walking our retired Greyhound, Iggy on Yateley common and Frogmore, where we live.
