I began as a parent governor six years ago, became a staff governor when my role changed and am now a co-opted governor! As a parent, member of staff and member of the governing body, I am in a good position to see issues from different points of view and I have always tried to use this to the advantage of the school during my time here.

I have been teaching for 23 years in a variety of settings, and I can honestly say that Lavender is the best school I have ever worked in. That doesn’t mean though, that we don’t constantly strive to do better-and that is why I am very happy that my own daughter attended this school.
