I joined the governing board in April 2021 although I was previously on the governing board for a number of years. I have worked in West Boldon Primary for just over 30 years, and I’m at my happiest when in school surroundings. I am recently widowed and have two grown children and I have just become a Grandma!

My interests are singing in a choir, gardening and travel. I am a District Beaver Leader at Tynemouth Scouts where my late husband also served as a Scout Leader. For over 40 years I have participated in local theatres operatic society.

As part of the governing board I want to make a positive contribution to the school, helping the school, children and staff to flourish.

I am passionate about West Boldon Primary, which for many years has felt like an extension of my family and friends.

I became a staff governor in 2020, having previously been a parent governor for 2 terms. I attended West Boldon Junior School myself, so the school has a special place in my heart, having had a very happy time here. My youngest daughter attended here and is now going into her last year at Boldon School.

I started working in the school 4 years ago, after volunteering for a few years, it inspired me to return to college and gain my teaching assistant qualification. Being part of the governing body allows me to put across the points of view of the children and how the decisions we make have an effect on the children.

It’s always a pleasure to speak to our parents and share their children’s achievements with them too. I love our school and being able to help our children access the curriculum, to the highest of their abilities, offering encouragement and praise, every step of the way.
