I was first elected Chair in 2019, a role I take very seriously and have completed the Chair of Governors training programme. 

I have a degree in Education and have worked in the education sector for over 15 years, providing services to schools across Lincolnshire, predominantly supporting schools with attendance and behaviour.  I currently work for Family Action managing the Behaviour Outreach Support Service across Lincolnshire.

I am passionate about inclusion and am committed to ensuring that our children recieve the best learning experience and education here at Weston Hills.
