I'm Mum to Flo who is in Year 6 and was appointed to the role of parent governor in November 2019. I have lived in Greasby most of my life just moving away when I went to study my undergraduate degree at the University of Wolverhampton. I love the outdoors and enjoy spending time with my family walking and going camping (as long as it's not too wet!!), and I like to catch up with friends over coffee and cake!! I also have a cat called Olive who likes catching mice and basking in the sun.
I currently work and public health research at Liverpool John Moores University where I have been for the last 15 years. In my role I have developed an interest in child mental health and well-being specifically the different areas that can impact upon the emotional health and well-being of children and the roles that schools can play in supporting the emotional health and well-being of pupils. I am also currently undertaking training to become a parents go facilitator for Wirral CAMHS thrive resilience programme that is being delivered in schools across Wirral.
I have been a parent helper since Flo was in Year 3 and really enjoyed coming into school to read with the children as well as helping out with fun activities such as art and science.
My role as parent governor and link governor for SEND and Pupil Premium enables me to become more actively involved in the school community and contribute to the governance of the school and make school the best experience it can be for our children, equipping them for the future. I feel very priviledged to be in such a position.
