I've been a Reception teacher for 24 years, the last 14 here at St John's. Early Years is my passion and joy, I really enjoy seeing the pupils I have taught develop and grow as they progress through our school. Outside of school I enjoy all aspects of fitness and exercise especially if it involves running in beautiful areas of the countryside. My rest time usually involves a yoga session. I have no business interests.

Having spent thirty years in a large primary school in Trentham – both teaching and on the Leadership Team – I retired and am now training as a curate at St John’s Church. I come into school to read to the children and am involved, alongside Reverend Rudd and Megan Davies, in providing worship opportunities for both the children and the staff. I am delighted to have the chance to combine previous experience with my new role.

I have been an engineering and construction professional for over 17 years. I have volunteered as a STEM ambassador for over 16 years with a keen passion for the learning and development of children. I became an LAC member to use my experience to contribute to the school community. This will also give me a greater insight into the challenges the school faces, supporting and overcoming these. Working alongside the Headteacher and LAC members, I will endeavour to lead by example enabling suitable challenge and courageous advocacy to help create an environment of knowledge and skills to strengthen the ethos of the school.
