I have recently moved to Naburn after many years working as a Finance Director for a range of charitable and care organisations looking after elderly people, providing children’s services and working with homeless people. I was a parent governor many years ago when my three children were at primary school in Bristol. I am delighted to join the governors and use my financial skills to support the ongoing development of the school. In my spare time I enjoy any outdoor activities, but especially if they involve boats.

Link Governor: Years 5 & 6
Born in Kent, I have lived in York since coming here to study Mathematics at the University. I have now lived in the North longer than the South: maybe not “born and bred” but certainly an adopted Northerner. As a family we have lived in Naburn for nearly ten years. I work in Harrogate, for Bettys and Taylors, as a manager in their IT department. I have two children, who both attend Naburn Primary. My hobbies include running and rock-climbing / bouldering, with the odd bit of gardening, hill-walking, cycling, and swimming thrown in.
Member of Finance and Resources Committee
Link Governor: Assessment for Learning, Science
I have lived in Stillingfleet and Naburn for the last twenty years and have been involved with the school over much of this time with all three of my children attending the school. As a qualified HR professional , I spent several years providing HR support and advice to the Primary and Secondary schools in York. More recently I have qualified as a Counsellor and worked with young people in a local school and for a Charity. I am delighted to join as a Foundation Governor and use some of these skills to help the school going forward. I love all outdoor sports, particularly horse riding, tennis and walking the dogs.
