Meet the Governors
I am proud to have served as a governor for St Laurence since 2017. Previously I have served as a governor at 4 different schools in the last 15 years and am passionate about governance, especially in church schools. It is an honour to see the tremendous amount of hard work and commitment from all staff in their efforts to make St Laurence as good as it can be.
Away from St. Laurence, I am a headteacher at an inner city primary school in Derby. I am married, have 3 children to fill my spare time and enjoy watching and playing Football, with Newcastle United being my team. My primary passion is music and it is my life’s work to ensure I own as many records and CDs as it is possible to fit in my spare room.
I have been a governor since February 2015, although I have enjoyed being a governor at other local schools in the past. The role involves supporting staff and volunteers as they work with pupils in this wonderful church school, this is a privilege.
I trained as a teacher and taught for many years in a church school in Nottingham, but am now a qualified youth worker and safeguarding trainer, I also volunteer at St Laurence’s open youth club as often as I can. Hobbies include following Nottingham Forest and on a happier note I am actively involved in amateur dramatics with Long Eaton Operatic Society and The Arcade Players.
