I live on the outskirts of Copley with my partner Alan and my children Jack, Ben and Tom. Tom is a swimming teacher/lifeguard and Jack and Ben are at Staindrop Academy. Jack is in Year 9 and Ben is in Year 7.
I have worked at Woodland Primary School as Office Manager since September 2006, and I am also the Chair of the Friends of Woodland School.
Even though I am already heavily involved in the day to day running of the school, I joined the governors to be able to see the ‘complete picture’ of how this very successful rural primary school works and to help with its future success.
