I became a Foundation Governor in the Summer term of 2018. As an ex-pupil of St Mary’s and with two children currently attending the school, I am honoured to be part of the forward thinking Governing Body.
I have over 20 years experience in Marketing & Communications having worked for organisations including Newcastle United Football Club, Northumbria Police and more recently, Metro Radio.
I currently hold the position of Marketing & Communication Manager of Stanley Learning Partnership, working to increase awareness of the four local Primary schools within the Partnership and improve both internal and external communication.
As Chair of the Children and the Community Committee I will endeavour to work with children, families and staff to position St Mary’s at the heart of our community. Whilst progress has already been made with parent/school communication, as a Board of Governors we are eager to build upon this great foundation and continue to improve it further.
I am passionate about ensuring our children develop the knowledge, skills and confidence for them to reach their full potential. Every child under our care makes an invaluable contribution to both our school and wider community and I hope my knowledge and experience can be used to promote this.
