Co-opted Governor

I am a Charted Accountant with 10 years' experience at a global accountancy firm, specialising in company audits. My daughter has started in Reception this year, but I actually joined Manor Park as a Co-opted school governor when I moved to the area a couple of years ago. 

I have always wanted to be involved in education and whilst I haven't trained to be a teacher (yet) this felt like the best way to be able to make a difference to the local community. I absolutely loved my own school years and know that this passion for learning has made a huge difference to my life. Every child deserves to have the same experience and as a governor, I will help maintain and develop the quality of education Manor Park delivers for current and future generations of pupils. I sit on the resources committee and bring a different perspective and way of thinking to the leadership of the school, plus where needed financial expertise and scrutiny. 

Outside of work life and being a parent you will most likely find me swimming, travelling or crafting.
