I joined the Board of Governors at Hindley Junior and Infants as a co-opted governor in July 2017 then transferred to the role of Local Authority Governor in March 2018. In September 2018 I was voted as chair of Governors and I have held this position to date.

The role of a governor is an interesting and rewarding role that requires a fine balance between providing effective challenge and support to the headteacher and senior leadership team in regard to the academic progress of learners and the effective running of the school.  Each governor agrees to be linked to a special area of the school and my role is to take the lead for the oversight and scrutiny of safeguarding, health and safety and the wider curriculum.

On a personal level I have worked for Wigan Council for the past 28 years and I am currently the Service Lead for Start Well, Early Help and Targeted Youth Support Service supporting children and families with a range of challenges and providing a number of opportunities for change.


In my spare time I enjoy playing the guitar and walking with my dog Katie. Being a governor at such an amazing school and working alongside talented, enthusiastic and committed staff, with keen and inquisitive leaners is a really privileged role and something I really enjoy.
