I am in my second term as a parent governor.
As a qualified Chartered Accountant, working in the not for profit sector, I support the school in the production of the annual budget, seeing first had the increased financial pressures faced by the school and I work closely with the head teacher, chair of finance committee and business manager to address these.
I have a strong belief that all children at the school should reach their full potential and aim to ensure that the governance of the school supports this ethos. As a former Director of Corporate Services - including a remit for Human Resources (HR), i work with the school on a number of HR issues, This has included the recruitment of a number of great teachers and TAs to support children across the school, and I feel my knowledge of HR is a continued asset to support this area.
Since 2015 I have been the Chair of Governors, a role which I relish. I am able to provide governance support to the Head Teacher as well as chair the Full Governing Body support by great Parent, Community and Local Authority Governors.
