Chair of Governors
Local Authority Nominated Governor
Vice Chair and Chair of Finance and Personnel Committee
I am a co-opted Governor with responsibilities on the Finance and Personnel Committee and additional responsibility for Safeguarding. I am a retired Divisional Finance Controller who travelled to and worked in Rotherham for 9 years and am enjoying putting my skills to good use for the school. I have 4 granddaughters, 2 of which attend Saxilby School and I am enjoying my involvement with their time at school.
I have been in education in one way or another all my life. I left university in 2005 where I studied Primary Education. Since then, I have been teaching in Lincoln and I am now the Head Of Mathematics at a secondary school in the City. I have one child currently in school with another hopefully joining in a couple of years.
I have been the Headteacher at Saxilby Church of England School since September 2014. This is my second headship and I first became a headteacher in 2007. I am a Local Leader in Education (LLE) and work on a range of working parties and committees across many local authority and teaching school projects, working alongside many other schools, leaders and governing bodies.
I am currently Key Stage 1 Phase Leader and year 2 teacher at our school. I have been teaching at our school for 5 years and I have taught in both lower key stage 2 and key stage 1. I completed my teacher training at Saxilby in year 5/6 through the Lincoln SCITT programme. I completed my teacher training after graduating from Hull University, studying Criminology and Forensic Science.
As a Foundation Governor, and parent to my daughter who studies here, I have a great interest in how the Christian values of Saxilby, as a church school, are applied throughout the curriculum and the wider experience of education. After studying Christian Theology locally at Bishop Grosseteste, I have worked in bookselling, Higher Education and Local Government; I now run my own business. Creativity is very important to me and I hope I can be a positive and progressive influence during my term of office.
