I was elected to the governing body in December 2018 and am the lead for safeguarding, I check that our school website is relevant and accurate with the information which it contains and am the link governor for the current year 3 class. I have three children in the school in years 6, 4 and 2 respectively and have been a member of the school community for the past 7 years; I started off in the PTA as a volunteer, and subsequently secretary, for a few years before looking to become involved as a governor. Being involved in the governing body has given me a much greater insight and understanding into the huge amount that is involved in running a school, whilst being in the privileged position of being part of the team committed to ensuring that our children receive the very best out of their schooling. In my ‘out of school life’ I work as a nurse practitioner in our local children’s emergency department and am currently undertaking my MSc. I am also an assistant section leader for our local Beaver Scout group and manage the U9’s at Chess Valley RFC.
