Joining the team in October 2017, I am proud to represent The Grove School as their Local Authority and H&S Governor. I also Chair for the Finance & Premises Committee.

My current employment as a Facilities Manager brings experience working on maintenance contracts, H&S, procurement, budget management along with event management.

My son is also a pupil starting reception in 2017.

For me being a Governor is about supporting the Head, the staff and students to get the very best out of the school and to make the right decisions.

I am the Deputy Headteacher at The Grove. I have served as a Staff Governor in the past and am delighted to be part of the Governing Body at The Grove. Work and being a mum of two boys keeps me very busy and spending time with my family is my favourite way to unwind.  I enjoy keeping fit my weekly Zumba class is great fun. I have just taken up running with my youngest son but I don’t imagine we’ll be entering any Marathons for a while! Reading is a passion of mine and I’ve always got a book on the go. My other interests include walking, going to the cinema or theatre and spending time with friends.

I am delighted to be part of the Governor team at The Grove. I joined as a member in April 2018. I have a child at The Grove who joined Foundation Stage in 2016 and I hope that my son will also come to the school. I currently work in Human Resources for a charity and hope that I have some skills that will be of value to the school. I think we have a fantastic school and I am very proud to be part of it!
