Foundation Governor appointed by the Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle
I have two children at All Saints’ and, following a period as a Parent Governor, I became a Foundation Governor in the Summer of 2015. I first began teaching in 1995 at a Catholic Sixth Form College. It was here that I first appreciated the defining characteristics of a truly Catholic education and the hugely positive impact this can have on the lives of young people. As a teacher of Drama and Dance, I have a special interest in the Performing Arts and in recent years I have enjoyed working with the staff and children of All Saints’ to stage musical and dramatic performances. As a governor at All Saints’, my areas of special responsibility are Looked After Children, Children with Health Needs and Special Needs and Inclusion. I also sit on a number of committees including Personnel, Admissions and Pupil Discipline.
