Mr David Parkes - Parent Governor

 I have two girls who both attend Hadfield Infant School.  I understand the importance of a good education but also the important role a school plays in the community.  As a Governor I want to do what I can to help the school maintain high standards and continue to create a safe and secure environment for our children to learn. 


I am a solicitor and partner in a firm that has an office in the local area.  I specialise in law relating to the children and I am the only solicitor in the High Peak who is accredited by the Law Society to represent children.  I spend most of my time in the Derbyshire and Greater Manchester Courts representing children (and parents) who have been subject to child protection proceedings.  I hope my experience, both as an advocate, and in the area of child protection law will enhance the role I can play as a Governor.
