I am passionate about Castleside Primary School. As an ex-pupil, and having seen both my children flourish as they progresses through the school, I am committed to ensuring that every pupil at the school achieve their potential within a caring and encouraging environment.
I became a governor 8 years ago and for the past 5 years I have and the honour of being chair of Governors. Within the governing body I am also the nominated governor for Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and Special Education Needs and Disability (SEND), both of which I studied whilst obtaining my CACHE Level 3 in Early Years Practice. As I have worked in the financial sector for 30+ years I am happy to serve on the Finance Committee.
I initially joined as a Parent Governor but later became the Local Authority Governor after joining the local Parish Council. Making the school the heart of out community is of great importance to me., and the combination of School Governor and Parish councillor allows me to bring the two together to benefit, not only the school, but the wider village community.
