I have previously worked as a marine consultant and a Coastguard, but I am enjoying spending more time with my family at the moment. I have sat on both the Curriculum and Standards, and Finance and Resources Committees, although I am presently on the latter. I have also participated in the Headteacher’s Performance Management Committee and the Headteacher Recruitment. I became the Chair of Governors in September 2017.

My background started in teaching (a long time ago) but then I moved into IT. I now work as an IT consultant providing software training to accountants (who are often worse than children!). I enjoy being able to spend time in school, helping on school trips, hearing readers and supporting the staff.
