I have four children and have been a school governor for 12 years in total, first at West Bridgford Infant School, and then at West Bridgford Junior School. During this time of constant political changes and unrelenting pressures on the education system, I have witnessed the school develop and flourish under excellent leadership and dedicated teachers. The governing body has also developed during this time, not least thanks to our amazing and inspiring Chair.
I am currently in the process of writing up a doctorate in Semitics at Cambridge University which I will be completing before the summer, after which I will be starting training for ordination in September 2019. I am a co-opted governor, the Year 3 Link Governor and also Governor responsible for staff wellbeing.
