I have been Headteacher at Oaklands Nursery since 2005. I’ve always worked with Early Years children in a number of different roles: teacher, Early Years Advisor and now Headteacher. I’m currently involved as a National Leader of Education with supporting other schools and delivering training as part of the Teaching Schools Initiative.
I’ve been the teacher at Oaklands since 2006. I oversee the large team of staff at the nursery and recently have become a Specialist Leader of Education supporting other schools and settings and delivering training as part of the Teaching Schools Initiative.
I became a governor when my child attended the school in 2010. My previous working background was in finance and accounting and I welcome the opportunity to use my professional skills to support the school. I feel that it is very important that nursery aged children are taught to a high standard and enjoy their learning to give them a solid base for their future education.
I became a Governor when my children attended the nursery here and I live and work locally. I feel it is important to support the school, so that future generations can have the wonderful experience my children had here.
I have two children both of whom have been fortunate enough to have attended Oaklands. Having watched my eldest son grow and develop as he made his way through Oaklands Nursery I was keen to offer my support as a parent governor. I also work for Staffordshire County Council as an Early Years Commissioning Manager, so early education is of particular interest to me both in work and at home.
I have worked for a number of years in partnership with Oaklands Nursery in my role within Staffordshire Children’s Centres. I have witnessed first-hand the dedication the nursery has to ensure that all children have the best start in life. When the vacancy of Chair of Governors became available I was honoured at being considered for the role. I have three children of my own and am passionate about ensuring children have the best education so they can thrive.
