I am a 31-year-old mother of two, I have 2 children at Ellistown Primary School, and I am also an aunty to 8 all of which are under 7 years of age and are at primary school or will be starting in primary school in the next couple of years.
I currently work for the NHS in Bed Management, before that I was a Health Care Assistant. During my 13 years in the health sector I have learnt the value of being kind and direct, maintaining professionalism at all times. Through my roles I have to communicate effectively with staff on all levels in all areas within the NHS, attending meetings, being challenged and putting plans in place to ensure targets are met.
I love being able to attend classrooms of my children on open days or to see topics they have done. This open ethos is fantastic as it allows us as parents to ask questions and understand how our children are being taught. I, like all parents want the best education for our children. I believe that through being a part of the governing board, I can understand more about what challenges the school faces when making decisions around education.
I am proud to be able to offer my support to the school, its staff and pupils, along with the rest of the governing board, challenging and asking question about decisions when necessary. Overall making sure the school is not only achieving for each child but to make sure it’s striving to exceed for each child.
Dream, Believe, Achieve. “The Ellistown Way”
