I became a Foundation Governor in November 2012, and currently sit on 2 committees: Personnel and Pupil Welfare, and Learning and Teaching. I have a background in education, having worked as a primary school teacher/deputy head/acting head teacher for 34 years.
I am still passionate about education, and keen to see children today develop into well-rounded young people, equipped to cope with all the pressures of life in the 21st century. I consider myself to be a "hands-on" governor, and volunteer for one morning a week, currently with Year 6. I enjoy this opportunity to interact with both children and staff. I have been an active member of Werrington Parish Church for 26 years.
I see my role as governor being multi-faceted, helping pupils to receive the best and broadest education they can whilst supporting staff in delivering that education. It is a challenging and ever-changing role, but one which I enjoy immensely.
