My three children have all attended St Barnabas: two are now in secondary school and one is in Year 6. The supportive and nurturing culture of St Barnabas has been a hugely positive formative educational experience for my children and the unique, inclusive and community-centred approach of St. Barnabas is something I am keen to preserve for the continuing generation of St. Barnabas children. I have been a parent governor at St. Barnabas for the past six years and have been the chair of the Resources Committee, chair of the Finance Committee, the SEND governor and Sports governor. I bring to the role my governing experience and expertise.
