I want to use the varied knowledge and expertise from my career in financial services
I am a mum of twin boys both of whom attend St. Chad’s. I am currently the Vice-Chair of the Board of Governors and also a Foundation Governor. I was born and brought up in Calderdale but when I moved to Hipperholme with my husband and young son I was keen to find a way of becoming part of the community to. For me becoming a governor was a great opportunity to do this. I was subsequently appointed as a Local Authority Governor (LEA) in December 2015. I want to use the varied knowledge and expertise from my career in financial services to work with the governing body to endure that both St Chads and pupils go from strength to strength and thrive.
I am the vicar of St. Chad’s and St. Matthews.
I am the vicar of St. Chad’s and St. Matthews. I am, therefore, a Foundation Governor and am there to ensure that the Church of England nature of school is upheld and promoted. Before becoming a vicar I was a teacher and have a lifelong interest in education in many forms. I have experienced schools as a teacher, parent and have been a school governor in several different places for the past 20 years.
I have a wide spectrum of skills in the field of education, to offer the children and families of Trinity Academy St Chad’s.
I am lucky enough to have become a governor of Trinity Academy St Chad’s. Born and brought up in the local area, I have sought to support my local community over several decades, as a secondary school teacher. I have one daughter, who has grown-up to become a teacher too. I am able to offer my skills-base and experience by diversifying into the support of primary-aged children. By working as a part of the governance team, I hope to not only aid our students’ academic progress over time, but also to offer an holistic, supportive perspective, which can take into account the challenges our young people can face, as they engage with school life and prepare for the different stages of growing-up. It is an honour to support them in their journey to fulfil their potential.
I have skills in planning and delivering services with responsibility for monitoring and quality assurance.
I have been a school Foundation Governor at St. Chad’s for the past two years. I am also a Sunday School Leader at St. Chad’s Church. I manage a voluntary sector social enterprise in Bradford supporting adults with learning disabilities through day time opportunities in horticulture and related activities. I have skills in planning and delivering services with responsibility for monitoring and quality assurance. I have a daughter in school, love spending time outdoors and enjoy singing in a choir.
I applied to become a governor of St. Chad’s in 2018 as I wanted to be involved in helping to support and improve the school after the Ofsted review. Protecting the ethos of the school was also important to me; I have two children who attend St. Chad’s and I wanted to ensure that the happy, nurturing character of the school was protected as the school underwent its improvement journey.
After several years of teaching science qualifications in post-sixteen education, I now work with science apprenticeships; carrying out independent assessments and quality assurance checks on individuals working in the science industries. My experience of working in education and with academic and vocational qualifications has given me a wide range of skills that are beneficial to the role of a governor.
