I am a Mum of two children; one who has left but attended this school and one who is still at Barkisland. I am a Foundation Governor on the Governing Body, representing the Christian ethos and Church links with the school. I have also recently taken on the role of Chair of the Governing Body.

In my working life, I am a HR specialist who works with a variety of organisations especially SME’s, although I had 17 years’ experience previously with Marks and Spencer as a Regional Head of HR.

I was thrilled when my children obtained a place at Barkisland CE School and I remain pleased with their progress and the environment in which they are (and were) schooled.  As a consequence I wanted to contribute to the high standards that Barkisland achieves and I felt that if I could offer my skills and experience, I should.  When our Head teacher, Becky Schofield, joined the school I could see that the school was going to keep on developing and progressing; I am delighted to be part of that journey.

I am a committed member of the Church I attend and hope to encourage and support the School in maintaining its Christian values.
