Born in Barry in South Wales. I moved to Doncaster in 1978 after taking up a temporary employment opportunity with a local company. I settled in Doncaster moving from Hexthorpe to Skellow, then on to Scawsby and finally settling in Bentley in 2002. I retired (voluntarily) from my local authority as a project manager in 2010 after 21 years. I have two sons whom both attended Sunnyfields Primary School during the late 90's and early 00's. I became a Governor in 2002. I then became a Local Authority appointed Governor and finally obtained the role of Chair of Governors in 2009.

Chloe Hoogwerf


'I became the school's Staff Governor in September 2020. I teach Year 3 at Sunnyfields and absolutely love my job. I wanted to be a Governor to gain a better understanding of the decision-making and procedures that happen behind the scenes at our school. I love that I can represent the staff at Sunnyfields and hope to be a great addition to the Governing body. 

As well as class teacher and staff governor, I also lead Music, French, RE and Computing at Sunnyfields. In this role, I ensure that these subjects are running smoothly and consistently throughout school, whilst exploring new directions for each subject to take in our ever-changing society.

Teaching is my first and main passion, but outside of work I also enjoy running and reading.'

Hayley Lumley


I am a teacher here at Sunnyfields and have been since 2015, in Lower Key Stage 2 and I became a governor in October 2018. 


I completed my teacher training with Schools Direct in June 2015 after working as a teaching assistant for several years prior to that across South Yorkshire.

Before I decided to become a teacher, I studied Illustration at the University of Huddersfield. I have always been passionate about the arts and creativity within schools and through this I became Art co-ordinator. This involved leading art across school and supporting children and staff to develop their artistic abilities. I am now working with other members of staff as part of a team to oversee the wider curriculum across school.

Outside school I enjoy anything involving arts and crafts and spending time with friends and family!

Dean Wiffen


I am a Co-opted Governor here at Sunnyfields. I have lived in Doncaster all my life and recently moved back to Scawthorpe with my wife and young daughter, who attends Sunnyfields.

I have worked at Doncaster Council for over 15 years and my role supports people to become more physically active in their day to day life, through engaging in sport and physical activity opportunities. I hope I can pass on my knowledge and experience within this subject area, to support the young children at Sunnyfields within their PE and sporting activities’
