I believe the junior school years are a critical juncture in the educational path of young people today.
My interest in being a governor stems from leading an education project whilst working for a technology company several years ago. I had the opportunity to see the passion, energy and dedication of the teachers I met and also gained a better understanding of some of the challenges in education.
Since then, I have become a parent which has further strengthened my conviction that every child has the right to a solid and relevant education, so they can be equipped with the confidence and abilities to forge their paths in life.
I hope that my professional experience, working in sustainability for corporate organisations, can bring a mix of skills and perspectives to the board of governors and the wider community of teachers, parents and pupils.
