Date of Appointment: September 2018 to September 2022

I joined the Governing Body of Torridon Junior School in March 2017 and was elected Vice Chair in the following September. I welcome the amalgamation of the two schools to create Torridon Primary School and the opportunity to establish our new school as a centre of excellence for all pupils in both key stages and the continued first choice for local families. I am delighted to have been invited to continue as a Governor of Torridon Primary.

I worked for over 30 years in Local Authority Social Care and Education teams which has given me considerable experience in implementing change.  I hope to work with my fellow Governors and the school Senior Leadership Team to develop an exciting and secure environment for all our pupils, one where they are active learners and curious to find out about the world. To achieve this we will need high quality teaching delivered by our teachers and teaching assistants, active partnership with parents and carers and careful use of all our resources.

My professional experience included work with Special Education & Disability teams, and considerable experience of team, budget and buildings management.  I will put this experience to full use on behalf of all our children.

Date of Appointment: February 2021 to September 2025

 I was previously appointed as the Local Authority Governor for Torridon Infant and Nursery School in February 2017, and was asked by the Local Authority to stay on in this role for the new Primary School following amalgamation. I’ve lived in Catford since 2007 and have two young children who tend to keep me pretty busy. I work in central London as the Research and Analysis Standards Manager at the College of Policing where I manage a team of analysts, statisticians and social researchers. As the school Data Link Governor I use my professional skills to keep an eye on all aspects of our school performance data. I am also the Curriculum Link Governor where I have responsibility for looking at the schools’ approach to teaching all subjects, particularly the foundation subjects.

Date of Appointment:  September 2018 to September 2022

I became a parent Governor at Torridon Junior School in April 2017 and I am now delighted to have been elected to serve as a parent Governor for our newly amalgamated Primary School.

I have two daughters at Torridon Primary School and I have lived in our local area all my life. I work as a Community Speech and Language Therapist in the borough of Lewisham where I support adults with swallow and communication difficulties due to neurological impairments.

I feel very passionate about our school and ensuring that our children receive high quality inspiring education in a warm and nurturing environment. During the term of my Governorship, I look forward to supporting our school in its ongoing transition to becoming a strong unified community which places our children at the centre of its vision and ethos

Before joining the Governing Body, I was the trreasurer of the Torridon Parent Teacher Association and have always enjoyed participating in school events.

For the upcoming academic year, I will be the Link Governor for Numeracy and a member of both the Premises, Health and Safety Committee and the Curriculum and Standards Committee.

I have lived in Catford since 2011 and have four young children, the eldest three of whom are thoroughly enjoying their time at Torridon Primary School.

I am currently a member of the Finance and Personnel sub-committee and am actively involved in developing a new ICT strategy for the school.

Date of Appointment: September 2018 to September 2022

I became a Governor a number of years ago when my sons attended Torridon Infants School and have continued in this role although they have now left the school.
