I joined the New Bridge School Governing Body in 2008 as a parent governor and live a short walk away from the school. I have a particular interest in ‘transitions’ and it is my belief that as our young people become adults, the school should be preparing all of them for employment and life in the real world. The pathways such as Bridging the Gap, Hortus, Lumenus and the IT and Sports pathways are examples of how this outstanding school does make a difference in our young people’s lives.
As part of my role as Trustee, I chair the Audit Committee which regularly scrutinises the financial and other processes within the Trust. I also sit on the Pay Committee, the Disciplinary Committee and I am the GDPR Officer.
Outside the MAT, I sit on Oldham’s Learning Disability Partnership Board as a family member and I also work with the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership as part of both their Programme Development Group and their Supported Employment Group.
I believe that schools and colleges should be ensuring young people are ‘work and life ready’. I value my work as a Trustee in an organisation that realises the importance of outcomes and supports our young people to achieve their full potential.
