Sue Batters

Chair of Governors


I have had the privilege of being a school governor at Murston for 20 years and have found it hugely rewarding. My children had a positive experience at Murston, now Sunny Bank, and I became a governor to help ensure that all children have the same opportunities that they had. I am currently serving as Chair and am excited about supporting The Island Learning Trust ( TILT ) to ensure that all our children strive to “be the best that you can be “, an ideal that I will also try my hardest to uphold.





Daniella Hales

Staff appointed


I am a class teacher at Sunny Bank Primary School and I am responsible for reading and French across the school. I began working at Sunny Bank Primary School in March 2022. I have a master’s degree in Education which focused particularly on reading for pleasure and the impact this has on outcomes. I am also currently enrolled on a NPQ in leading literacy as I hope to eventually take over leading Literacy across the school at Sunny Bank Primary School. I live with my family in Minster and my daughter is currently in year 5 at Halfway Houses Primary School. We both share a passion for reading and you can often find us together reading our books. I also love to travel and I want to learn as much about the world as possible. I have two Pomeranian dogs and you can often find us as a family, walking the dogs along the beach. I am committed to working with the team at Sunny Bank to improve the outcomes and experiences of all of the children to make their futures as bright as possible.





Ann Hampshire

Trust appointed


I grew up in Murston and attended Murston School in the 1960's/70's. On leaving school, I worked for a variety of banking organisations both locally and in London. After starting my family, I made the best decision of my life - studying for a BA degree in Economics and Politics followed by a PGCE. After qualifying as a primary school teacher, I worked in a number of schools including Lansdowne Primary School where I served as a 'Teacher Governor', Milton Court Primary School as SENDCo/Senior Leader and of course, Murston Infants! Although now retired from classroom teaching, I continue to work as a private tutor. In 2019 I had the privilege of being elected as a ward councillor for Murston.



Sherrie Bruce

Parent appointed


I grew up in Murston, and attended Murston Infants & Junior schools, as Sunny Bank was known then. I was blessed to have fantastic teachers at the school, who made a lasting impression on me and encouraged my love of learning. I left school and began working in financial services, which I loved and then moved into payroll. However, having my first child in 2012, I became a stay at home parent and have been able to take a very active role in my children's lives and education. My eldest son started his school life at Murston Nursery, now Sunny Bank, and I've been able to watch both him, and the school, grow and blossom - especially since the school came under the TILT umbrella. The TILT values for learning align very closely with my own, and I am thankful for the passionate staff who endeavour to help children grow as they learn. Being a parent governor, for me, means that I can support both of my children, and the children of others, to ensure that the school is indeed, helping them to be 'the best that they can be!'



Louise Childs

Parent appointed


I was elected as a parent governor in January 2023.

I moved to Sittingbourne from Shoeburyness in Essex in 2003 when I was 16 years old after finishing my G.C.S.E's.


I have a great passion for books and enjoy reading a variety of authors, a passion that I have passed onto my own 3 children who all love books and enjoy reading themselves. If I am not reading then I enjoy playing board games with my children and learning new things: I recently taught myself how to crochet! 


All 3 of my children attend Sunny Bank so I am committed to helping the school with its continued success. I have a good relationship with all the staff at the school and with my support and encouragement, together with my understanding of the local community, feel we can carry on working together to ensure that the children of Sunny Bank receive an excellent education so that they can continue to “Be the best they can be".
