Chair of Governors/Parent Governor

Date of appointment:28/03/2017

Length of term: 4 years

Appointed by: GB/board


I am a mum of two, and a Design and Conservation Team Leader in the Planning Department at Southwark Council.

My work has taught me to listen very carefully to a variety of viewpoints and to understand what different people want and need. I have also learnt to communicate clearly and to stand my ground when necessary. I have lots of experience of negotiation and how and when to compromise. I have also developed the skills necessary to create and realise long term plans and visions.

It is a privilege for me to represent other parents, and to work with the Trust to both support the great work they are already doing and to challenge them to keep on improving.
