Achievement & Community Committee
Full Governing Body
Why did you decide to become a Governor at Horsenden Primary School?
I started when my first child entered the school as I wanted to get involved. I also helped set up the parents /teachers group for a while as well. I feel that it is important to give something in return for what your child receives.
What do you think that Governors can bring to Horsenden Primary School?
Help support the school and the Headteacher to provide the best possible education by monitoring and supporting the school. Also by being the critical friend and making sure that the school maintain the standard that Ofsted require.
What are your interests in Education?
My interests stem from my work. My focus is, therefore, on Looked After Children and Child Protection. I use these skills on the Governing Body. I am also interested in supporting the school and its links in the community.
Brief history of your career, life and background
I have had 3 children that have been at Horsenden. My partner also works in the school and campaigned for the new High School. My work background is over 20 years as a social worker and I currently help to run a fostering agency.
