I have previously served as a primary school governor and spent some of that time as Chair with the nominated role for child protection. Within that 10 year period I spent time on the personnel committee undertaking interviews, performance management and staff disciplinary roles. My knowledge in numerous educational roles including Special Educational Needs, School Admissions and Attendance will be useful in assisting me with the Director role. My current role deals with safeguarding and tracking children missing from education which has required that I maintain up to date Child Protection Training. As a director I believe that every child should have the chance to reach their full educational potential and be guided by the Academy to plan and access the educational opportunities and activities on offer whilst the Academy supports their learning journey.
