I became a school governor at Brightside in 2010 when my daughter attended the school and my son is currently in KS1.
I work as a Local Authority Finance Officer and was formerly a trustee of a local charity. I can offer my financial knowledge, advice and guidance to the school as well as bringing other skills obtained from my personal experiences both in life and in the workplace. I am keen to assist the school in helping all children by playing a strategic and challenging role as part of the school’s governing body.
I am a mum of 4 children, all of which have attended Brightside School.
I have lived in the area for 12 years. I am currently working at Brightside School. In addition to this I have currently finished my Level 3 qualifications as a Teaching Assistant. I have attended various family learning courses and parent forum meetings.
In my role as a parent governor, I hope to be a support to both parents and for the school, bringing a positive attitude towards the children’s welfare and education.
I have lived in the area for 28 years. Both of my children attended Brightside School as currently do my grandchildren.
Currently I work part time as a civil servant and I am also an elected councillor in Birley. I have had many roles as a councillor including two years in the Children's Portfolio. My hobbies are jogging, reading and spending time with my grandchildren.
I believe that all children have the right to the good education and being a governor at Brightside I will do my best to make sure the children get everything they can from their education.
I have now been a Governor at Brightside Nursery Infant School for over nine years during which time I have fulfilled various roles including Chair of Governors.
Having lived in this area for my whole life, I know first-hand the challenges this school faces on a daily basis. Having had all three of my sons attend the school and through my work as a Governor, I know how this school is well placed to meet them.
