I have been a dedicated member of the Swarcliffe team for over 6 years now and enjoyed a number of fulfilling roles including my current post as Deputy Headteacher. Being an associate member of the Governing Body has added a new aspect to my role and created further opportunities for me to make a difference. I enjoy and thrive on the challenge that comes with every aspect of school life and am passionate about high quality education with each and every child reaching their full potential. Nothing but the best is good enough for the children of Swarcliffe.
I have been a governor at Swarcliffe Primary since March 2016 and have been Chair of Governors since 2017. As the chair of the governing board my main role is to lead and direct the board of governors to ensure that we function effectively to meet our core functions. These core functions are to ensure clarity of vision in the ethos and strategic direction of the school, to hold the senior leaders to account for the educational performance of the pupils and to make sure our school funds are well spent.
I love meeting and working with all of the children and visit school regularly. Over the last few years I have got to know quite a lot of them!
I am a solicitor by profession but have not worked now for a number of years while I have been raising my own family. I am a mum to two teenage sons.
