I joined the governing body in November 2017 and I have worked in public administration for much of my life. I have also been Chair of Social Services in an inner London borough; for 10 years I chaired different NHS organisations to achieve better value and responsiveness; I’ve been an active supporter of housing associations and have also chaired a Children’s Charity running a number of nurseries. I have been a District Cllr on Three Rivers for the ward that includes Maple Cross & West Hyde. I was brought up in Chorleywood and my son went to school there. I have been a governor of 3 other primary schools (not at the same time!). At Maple Cross I am experiencing a whole new era of modern technology, methods of teaching, ambitious learning targets and analysis of outcomes. What a revelation.
