I joined the governing body in April 2022 as a co-opted governor. I have enjoyed a lifelong passion of working with children to ensure they reach their full potential. I have worked in the NHS as a Nurse for nearly 40 years. Having been in General Nursing I found my niche working as a Health Visitor, both in deprived and affluent areas. It was this that led me to work in the field of Child Protection resulting in a Masters in Child Care Law and Practice. With all these experiences I feel I can offer advice, support and expertise in these areas. I have a special interest in Mental Health, Professional Standards and Allegation Management.
I have been a Governor in Bournemouth when my children were in Primary School, so I am aware of the commitment required.
Having recently moved to East Boldre with my husband Nick, Daisydog and Ronnie the cat I welcome this opportunity to support the families and community of the school. We have four children and four grandchildren who all live fairly locally. We enjoy travel, walking and cycling and our garden.
