I was elected as a parent governor in April 2015 and Co-opted Governor in February 2019.  I passionately believe that all children should find enjoyment at school whilst realizing their true potential.  I’m a huge supporter of creativity and for children to maintain this throughout their school journey.

Link role: Safeguarding, SEN, LAC, Pupil Premium and Young Carers

I have many years’ experience in adult education in a senior management role and have recently started a new career as a primary school teacher. In my role as parent governor, I am using all the skills and experience I have in this sector to help strategically steer Tubbenden Primary School to provide the absolute best for the children. I feel strongly that the early primary educational years are the most important in forming a solid foundation for a child's development.
