Chair of Governors
Joined the governors in 1999
Reasons for becoming a governor – My child was a student at Elemore Hall School when I joined as a parent governor. After my child left the school I was able to remain on the governing body as I wished to continue to support the head teacher, staff and students in the school. As a parent of a child with special needs I have an understanding of some of the challenges that they and their parents/carers face, and have experience of working with professionals from education, social care and health.
Background information – I have worked in computer application development and support since 1974, initially for a British multinational computer manufacturer, and since 1994 in the Information Technology department of a local authority in the north east of England.
