I was elected as a parent governor 16 years ago when my first child joined the reception class at Lingey House. Both of my children have now moved on through to Heworth Grange and beyond. When the Governing Body reconstituted I transferred to the category of co-opted governor.
I was appointed as Chair of Governors approximately 10 years ago. In my “day job” I work for a neighbouring Local Authority as a Governor Support and School Admissions Manager and I bring the skills and knowledge of the role to the Governing Body.
I visit the school as often as possible to attend formal meetings but also informally to see the many and varied activities that are provided for the children.
I enjoy my role as a governor and I feel privileged to be part of the fantastic team at Lingey House, the best school in the universe.
