I have two children at Barrowby school, Hannah and Lucas. I have had a varied and successful management career, during which time I have developed many areas of expertise which I believe equips me in my role as parent governor. Pertinent experience includes Team Leadership and Operational Management, Contract Negotiation, Financial Planning and Project Management.
I work locally which facilitates the time required to fully undertake and add value to this role. During my career I have gained experience and the necessary skill set to provide a fair and balanced opinion on the governing body and hope I can assist the team to deliver the best for our school and children.
I have lived in Barrowby for 27 years, and both my children attended Barrowby School. I have been a Foundation Governor here for over 24 years, and working at the school for over 20 years, before retiring at the end of 2016. It has been a privilege to be part of the team that has resulted in our outstanding school throughout those years.
From January 2017, I have also taken on the role of Bishop's Visitor to the school, an appointment by Lincoln Diocese to provide additional support to our church school.
I am also a minister at Barrowby Church, and very much value the opportunities this provides to strengthen the links between our church, and our church school.
I have two children at Barrowby, Oliver 7 and Isabelle 5. My experience lies in education and am currently in my 10th year as a primary school teacher. I have knowledge of assessing and analysing data, ensuring that children are progressing well within their own personal education.
My current role requires me to teach physical education and therefore monitor the spending of the sports premium funding, maintaining value for money.
