Paul Hawkins

I have been a Derbyshire resident for all of my life and served as a police officer in the county for 30 years before retiring in 2014. I then worked for the police for five years as an Information Security Manager before retiring in May 2019.

I have been a school governor for over 20 years at both primary and secondary schools as well as serving on the management committee for Derbyshire Special Schools. I sit on the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Appeal panels for school admissions and I am currently vice-chair of the board of governors at a Derby secondary school. I also sit on Independent Review panels for school exclusions.

I am now semi-retired and work occasionally an examination invigilator. I also carry out voluntary work with the Royal National Institute for the Blind.

I have always enjoyed volunteering in schools, and supporting children to achieve their best, as education is key to so many things in life. Now that I have more free time and am looking forward to supporting the school and everyone connected with educating our children.
