I became the school’s Staff Governor in July 2016.
This is my 6th academic year working at Sunnyfields Primary school. I started at the school as the Year 2 teacher and taught this age group for two years. I then moved into the Early years Foundation stage and became the Foundation stage 1 teacher.
As well as being a staff governor, I lead PE within school. This role involves overseeing the delivery of PE across the school, organising all school competitions and leading a variety of after school clubs. I am passionate about sports and competition.

I became a Co-Opted Governor in January 2018. Both of my daughters attended Sunnyfields and I worked at the school for 23 years, first as a Midday Supervisor, then as Learning Support Assistant and finally as Office Assistant where I had lots of daily contact with parents and children which I absolutely loved. I retired in July 2014 to look after my grand-daughter while her mum returned to work. I really missed my involvement with the school and felt as though I was missing out on an important part of our community. So, when the opportunity to become a Governor arose I jumped at the chance to give some of my time and energy to Sunnyfields once more. You will see me most mornings and afternoons at the Key Stage 1 entrance taking and picking up my grand-daughter - please feel free to have a chat at any time.
Term of office expiry date 21.01.2022
This is my fifth academic year as part of the Sunnyfields team teaching in Lower Key Stage 2 and I became a governor in October 2018.
I completed my teacher training with Schools Direct in June 2015 after working as a teaching assistant for several years prior to that across South Yorkshire.
Before I decided to become a teacher, I studied Illustration at the University of Huddersfield. I have always been passionate about the arts and creativity within schools and through this I became Art co-ordinator. This involved leading art across school and supporting children and staff to develop their artistic abilities. I am now working with other members of staff as part of a team to oversee the wider curriculum across school.
Outside school I enjoy anything involving arts and crafts and spending time with friends and family!
Term of office expiry date 28.01.2023
I became a parent governor in November 2016. I have three daughters, two of which attend Sunnyfields. Until recently I was a primary school teacher myself at a local infant school but decided to focus on my family whilst they are young. I enjoy visiting school when I can and helping on school trips and in class.
Outside of Sunnyfields I volunteer my time to help a local dance school and have an interest in theatre. I love spending time with my family and enjoy day trips to explore different places.
