Until September 2016 I worked as the Senior Primary Improvement Adviser for the London Borough of Greenwich where I worked with a large number of schools and their governors including those in federations and those moving to academy trusts.

I have just been appointed a trustee of a recently formed multi-academy trust of seven primary schools in Greenwich. I have been an Inspector for Church schools in Southwark. My present role as Senior Schools Adviser for the Diocese of Chichester enables me to continue working in the delightful environment of church schools in Sussex. I am an avid reader and am particularly pleased to see the exciting ways children are inspired and learn to read in our schools, so it is lovely to see the reading areas and library developing at Fletching!

Responsibilities: Data, Pupil Premium/SEND, EYFS

I have worked in education for over 20 years and was a headteacher for 12 years. I currently work as a primary adviser in the London Borough of Hounslow. I have previously worked with a variety of local authorities, supporting schools with leadership issues, improving the quality of teaching and giving targeted input to improve pupil outcomes. In this role I have also actively worked with governing bodies and I hope I can bring this experience to supporting Fletching CE Primary School with its future developments.

I began teaching in middle schools in 1982 and completed a Diploma in Education Management before leaving full time teaching to have my family. I then returned to teach part time, focussing on special needs and booster groups. In 1997 I joined the staff at Fletching to support Maths and English in year 4. I then took on the French teaching and Special Needs Coordinator role. As the role of SENCO has increased, and the ability of the current staff to teach French has increased, I am now able to focus solely on Special Needs.

I am also a qualified McTimoney Chiropractor and run a clinic in Scaynes Hill with my husband.

My other interests include coaching trampolining and swimming, belonging to a Bobbin Lace Making Group and being President of the W.I. in Scaynes Hill. I am also the Local Training Manager for Mid Sussex District Scouts and I manage the bookings for our village hall!
