Roles within the governing body: Link governor to media studies, ICT and Sixth Form

Date appointed: October 2011

Appointed by: Parents' election

I am a parent governor at SNS working on the full governing body, curriculum committee and the outstanding workplace subgroup. In addition I work as a link governor for media studies, ICT and Sixth Form. I have one daughter at SNS and another at a state primary school just up the road.

I think it is essential that SNS is a vibrant, high performing organisation with an emphasis on inspiring and creative teaching at its core. Research shows that great teachers really do make a positive difference to young people’s learning and that is why I am determined for SNS to become an outstanding workplace for staff as well as an outstanding school for all our children. We aim to provide a high quality creative education for all.

I have taught in inner London colleges and schools for twenty years so I understand the education system in our amazing city and the importance of consistently high quality, comprehensive state education for our children, our communities and society.
