Appointed Parent Governor

Reason I became a governor.

Joining Hillocks Governors in November 2021, having had children at the school since 2015, I was excited to become part of the team working to build Hillocks to be the best school it can be for our local community. I strongly believe that every child should have the opportunity and right to a good quality education which sets the foundations for the person they can become. The broader the opportunities and support that our children can be offered the better for their longer term success.

How did you find out about the role?

I heard about the vacancy through the Academy advertisements for a parent governor.

What do you like about the role?

My family have lived locally for several generations and my husband, and I have lived locally for all our lives growing up and receiving our education in the local community. I now work in healthcare management and have done so for more than 20 years and many of the challenges and experiences this has provided are similar to those in education and other public funded services. I enjoy being able to offer my support and skills as a governor where these are transferrable. I currently have children at Hillocks and enjoy seeing them grow and learn and hearing about the amazing things they’ve learned each day. Time with my family is precious and the favourite part of my day. When I have the opportunity, I also enjoy cooking, reading and gardening/growing our own with my children.
