Term of office 01.09.15 - 31.08.2019
I was nominated as a parent governor at The Berkeley in Feb 2013, after holding a similar position for approximately 18 months at my son’s previous Primary School in Chesterfield, Derbyshire.
Upon relocation to Cheshire, both my sons attended the Berkeley and The Willows Pre-school, with the youngest still remaining in KS2.
My role has subsequently developed and now incorporates a number of special responsibilities including link governor for Inclusion with responsibilities for Special Educational Needs and Pupil Premium, Link Governor for Science, where I work together with the School Science leads to ensure all pupils can access Science learning and the profile of this increasingly important subject remains upmost within school, Link Governor for attendance and the Chair of the Curriculum Committee, where our work entails ensuring statutory national requirements are met as well as ensuring the school provides a balanced and broadly based curriculum. I want every child to get the best possible start in life and fully reach their potential, something I know everyone at The Berkeley is committed to.
In my working life I am the UK Business Development Manager for a Scandinavian manufacturer of safety products for industry. I have worked in the commercial environment predominantly sales and marketing for approximately 25 years in various sectors as diverse as automotive, steel, international freight and personal protective equipment. In my spare time I like to keep active, socialise with family and friends, visit new places and eat and prepare good food.
