Meet our Governors
I taught at Walton Girls’ High School for 31 years and spent many years as Assistant Principal responsible for Behaviour and Safety and Primary Liaison. I retired in 2015, however I still teach there ‘on supply’.
I have always thought how exciting it would be to be involved with shaping a new school. Having worked closely with Governors I understand the importance of their role. I believe senior leadership experience could be useful in a Governing Body and I have time to become fully involved with school activities and commit to Governor' requirements.
I was born in Grantham 78 years ago and attended The Spittlegate Boys School and The Kings School.
I have previously been clerk to 2 governing bodies in Grantham from 1986 to 2003 and afterwards was a governor at Walton Girls’ from 2003 until 2015. I was Chair of Governors from 2010 to 2012. My skill set was in Appeals, Health and Safety, Safeguarding, Curriculum, Risk Management, Pay Review, and general purposes.
I am very much looking forward to being part of a governing body again and supporting Poplar Farm Primary School.
My hobbies include magazine editing, photography, IT, drama and bell ringing.
Parent Ambassador Governors
I currently work for HLNY CRC probation, managing 11 multi discipline staff covering a wide range of roles including HR functions such as recruitment and selection, sickness, disciplinary, capability and supervision and appraisal. My team delivers community payback for the whole of greater Lincolnshire which requires problem solving skills and lots of logistics. As part of my role I also write and quality assure risk assessments and court reports, complete investigations and complaint reports as well as serious further offence reports as required by the justice department.
I am looking forward to becoming a governor to support Poplar Farm School and the local community.
