I became a parent governor at Trentham Academy at the end of 2019 and became a co-opted governor in 2021, when my daughter left the Academy. I have a passionate belief that all young people in our community should have an excellent education and benefit from the opportunities this brings, both within the academic curriculum and enrichment opportunities.
I hope that I can use my career experiences in schools and education leadership, in the sector, local authorities and most recently in DfE, to support the Academy to provide the best education possible for our children. I am passionate that when children are successful and happy in their learning, they are prepared to take the opportunities that are presented to them. I hope that all our children have the confidence to pursue their passions, now and throughout their lives.
Away from work, most of my life is spent with my family; I am sure many of you are familiar with the parent taxi! We spend a lot of time at dancing or at a range of football, hockey or cricket grounds or outside walking the dogs.
