I am a co-opted governor, joining in the 2017-18 academic year. I have worked in state secondary education for many years, in North Somerset, Gloucestershire, South Gloucestershire and Bristol local authorities, as humanities and history teacher and in school and college leadership. I am grateful to have the opportunity now to be involved in this early stage of children’s educational careers and I enjoy the challenge of getting to know the primary curriculum and assessment models from a governance point of view. My focus in on maximising opportunities for young people to develop and achieve their ambitions and I hope that my skill set and experience in education can be of value to the continuing development and success of the Strawberry Line Federation.
