I joined the Wheatcroft community initially as a volunteer in 2021.

I was elected to the role of Co-opted Governor by the Full Governing Body on 16th October, 2022.

I am a retired Nurse of 37 years. Having worked in both the General, Mental Health, and Forensic settings. My last position being in a role of Unit General Management.

I have 1 grandson who currently attends Wheatcroft school. I am involved in weekly guided reading sessions in Reception 1 & 2, and more recently I have become involved in Wheatcroft’s new initiative – The Reading Champions Programme.

I am Deputy SEND Link Governor (Appointed 14/3/23).

My hobbies are reading, travel, and eating out. My main strengths are planning and organisation, risk management, and supporting and managing large teams within a work setting.

Wheatcroft is a happy, friendly, caring “Good” rated school, and I will work hard within my role as School Governor along with our dedicated staff to uphold the reputation of the school in the community.
