Our Staff

Our school is resourced by an experienced and highly capable staff. We have five full-time classrooms operating. The teachers are supported by two teachers aides. We have an active Home and School committee and a progressive Board of Trustees.  We employ a sports coordinator and endeavour whenever possible to use community resources.


My name is Richard Kidd. I have been principal of Mayfield School since the beginning of 2014. 
Previously I have taught in Auckland and was Deputy principal of Waipu Primary school for seven years.
I am really enjoying my time as principal of Mayfield School. We are very lucky to have such wonderful facilities, great children and a supportive parent community.
My goal as Principal is to help further enhance the wonderful teaching and learning programmes here at Mayfield School through effective leadership.
Please feel free to contact me anytime (principal@mayfieldschool.co.nz).
