I attended Sextons Manor as a child and my two sons now attend the school.

I have been on the Governing body as a parent governor since January 2014 and have taken on the role as Safeguarding Governor.  I have 13 years’ experience of working for the local Authority’s Children and Young Peoples Directorate, specialising in Social Care and Early Help.  My role within the Local Authority equips me with an extensive knowledge of local government policies and procedures.  During this time I have been closely involved with supporting teams of Social workers, practice managers, senior managers together with managing my own team of staff.   I feel that I have a good mix of skills to bring to the Governing Body including staff management, recruitment, HR Issues,  IT, Data Protection and Finance.

I am very much enjoying my term as a parent governor and having seen the changes brought on by the Schools Reorganisation feel very encouraged to support the school through this transition and for both of my children and others to remain here within Suffolk’s two tier system.

I joined as a parent governor in 2020. I was inspired to join as my son attends the school and hopefully my daughter will join next year too. I’m looking forward to being involved in a supporting role and the strategic decision making. I have a particular interest in the learning achievement aspects of the school.  I have worked as an engineer for the last 15 years and I have a passion for science and technology. I am also a keen runner in my spare time.
