I am 33 years old, married, with two children under 5 years old. I joined the governing body in 2013/14. I have been a teacher Ellistown Primary since 2009 and having been through two HMI inspections, in which the most recent one (2017) we moved to be a ‘good’ school, I felt that I wanted to support the head teacher with an ‘in school’ perspective and contribution towards becoming an outstanding school.
Having taught full time across KS2 for 5 years, I now teach 3 days a week, allowing me to spend time at home with my children. I currently teach in year 6 but have experience across the whole key stage. In 2012 I became SENCo and studied to gain my National Award for SEND Co-ordination as well as my Masters in Education. Two years later, in 2014, I gained promotion to Inclusion Manager, taking on increased responsibility for the Pupil Premium and Higher Attaining pupils across the school as well as the SEND pupils. More recently, I have gained my Art of Middle Leadership qualification; been trained to conduct Pupil Premium reviews for the DfE, been invited to teach sessions on both the University of Leicester PGCE and Forest Way school direct initial teacher training program, focusing on SEND and the Pupil Premium and I am also an SLE (Specialist lead Educator) for Forest Way Teaching school.
I am totally committed to providing the children in our school with the best experience and opportunities that are possible. I enjoy being part of our progressive governing body and really feel that we are all driven by the same reasons and long term aspirations for our students.
