I am currently working as a qualified Equity Release Advisor. I have also worked in recruitment and leisure, in management roles and have had a wealth of managerial training and experience. I bring with me a varied skill set and an open mind. I am a parent myself, with two lovely daughters, who never cease to set me new challenges and provide insights as a dad and a governor. My interest in education stems from my mother who was a Nursery School teacher, and Headteacher and deeply involved in the development of Early Years Education. It is not surprising that my first voluntary role was as a member and Chair of the Wrenthorpe Preschool committee. I am deeply committed to ensuring that all children get the best possible start in life through a rich, varied, inclusive and engaging primary school environment and have been privileged to serve at Wrenthorpe Primary as a parent governor in the Resources Committee and be involved in its progress towards becoming a part of the Waterton MAT. It is my earnest hope that I can continue to play an integral part in the future growth and success of all of the schools, staff and children within the Trust.
