Co-opted Governor 

I have been a governor at Manor park since January 2011 when Iw as elected as a parent governor. I became a co-opted governor in 2015 and was elected as chair of governors in July 2016. As a governor my focus is on performance management and pay review committees and supporting the senior leadership team in underpinning the school's vision. 

In my professional life I ran my own IT business for 12 years but chose to return to education when my son started school and completed my PGCE at Warwick University. I am now a primary school teacher and have taught in various schools mainly in the north of the city which I feel supports me enormously in my role as chair of the governing body.

I am married with one son who previously attended Manor Park and is now flourishing in his journey through secondary school at The Westwood Academy. I have also recently become mummy to a very mischievous 15 month old Bichon Frise puppy that we have rescued from Dogs Trust.
