Teach children how they should live, and they will remember it all their lives. Proverbs 22 v 6






This is my seventh year as a governor and my fourth year as Chair of Governors. I work for the Diocese of Peterborough as the Stewardship Officer, which involves helping churches in the Diocese to increase their income. I’m married to Shona who is a Deputy Head Teacher and have two sons in their twenties. I enjoy coaching basketball, playing music and leading worship and I’m a Northampton Saints season ticket holder. I’m passionate about ensuring that all of our children have the best education we can possibly offer them and I firmly believe we are on our way to achieving that goal!

I am delighted to take up my Governor role at Ringstead Primary, I am currently a Year Leader and Mentor at another school in Northamptonshire and, having been a teacher now for 20 years, I hope that my experience can prove useful as a member of the Governing body. I wanted to become a governor because I am mum to two children and I want them to have the opportunity to thrive at Ringstead Primary. I am passionate about helping young people achieve their potential through education and ensuring youngsters have the best opportunities to succeed whilst growing into responsible and caring individuals. I enjoy playing a role in the life of the school and hope to collaborate with the teaching staff to ensure that all pupils enjoy a very positive learning experience.
