Pen Portrait: Little Sutton C. of E. Primary School has been part of my life for many years, with all my children attending the school until moving on to High School. I became a Parent Governor in 2008 as I wanted to be able to give a parent's voice. I completed my 4 year term in September, 2012, and was appointed as LA Governor to continue my role with the governing body team at Little Sutton. The role of Governor is demanding, but very rewarding. At present my role is mainly focused on teaching and learning within the school. I have seen our school grow into the excellent school it is today and I  am proud to be a Governor at Little Sutton.

Pen Portrait: After gaining a 1st Class B.A. Honours degree in P. E. I went on to complete by PGCE at the University of Nottingham through the SCITT scheme. I started my career in Sheffield before moving home to Chester to teach in Blacon and now Little Sutton. I have spent the majority of my career teaching Year 1. I am currently studying to obtain my M.A. degree in Educational Leadership at the University of Chester. I wanted to join our governing body to gain a deeper understanding of the running of our school and play an important role in the decisions that affect our day-to-day life. I want the children at Little Sutton Primary School to reach their full potential and leave Year 6 prepared for the next stage of their education. As a staff, our goal is for the children to leave primary school with lasting, happy memories and the belief that they can achieve anything they set their sights on.

Declaration of pecuniary interests:
Pen portrait: My daughter started at Little Sutton Primary School in September 2017. There was never any doubt in my mind that this was the school I wanted her to attend. I decided to become a Governor to be able to support the school team and the pupils. I have worked as a Training Adviser for over 15 years providing support to young Apprentices and their employers within the workplace. I know that young people all learn differently and felt I could help ensure that the start to children's school life remains as positive, engaging, enthusiastic, caring and enjoyable in the future, as it is today.
