I have worked in the education sector for the past ten years, having gained a BSc in Psychology and a PGCE for post-compulsory education. I have taught in a secondary school, college and university, and have consequently had experience with OFSTED and other governing bodies.
I am passionate about raising aspirations for all children and young people through the provision of high quality education, and look forward to working with the West Grantham Academies Trust as a Parent Director to ensure that the school communities promote a culture of excellence.
I have a particular interest in Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, and will soon begin studying for a related Masters degree. Between raising my two young boys, serving the Board of Directors and undertaking further study, I hope I will occasionally be able to find the time to read novels as well as textbooks.
