I am a retired teacher with 10 years’ experience in Yorkshire and 15 in Suffolk. I am currently the Chair of governors and it is a great privilege to hold this position. I strongly believe that our children deserve to be in one of the best schools in the country. All the governors and I will relentlessly drive towards improvements and excellence to achieve this ambition.

I qualified as a teacher in 2001 and have had a range of teaching jobs since including, Class teacher, EYFS Lead, Deputy head, as well as Head teacher. I also have a child who currently attends the school. I firmly believe all children deserve the best education possible, no matter what their backgrounds and starting points. I feel privileged to be a governor and can use my experiences to help support and challenge the school on its journey to outstanding. ‘Every Child Matters’ and it is our job to ensure all children reach their full potential.

My eldest started in Reception at BPS in September.I wanted to become a Governor to further my involvement in education, to be actively involved in my daughters schooling and support my local community.
Within my role as a Governor I focus on Literacy and the Curriculum
I have been in education for 20 years, working in both Norfolk and now in Suffolk. I started my teaching career at Fakenham Junior as a newly qualified teacher, jumped over to Mulbarton and then to Attleborough Junior spending 6 very happy years there. In September 2011 I took up a deputy headteacher post, with the responsibility for SEN, before deciding to move across to Suffolk. Since September 2013 I have been the headteacher at Edgar Sewter Primary in Halesworth and in April 2018 I was made the acting headteacher at Bungay Primary. Since May 2019 I have been the Executive Headteacher of both schools. Working amongst such enthusiastic and energetic children and dedicated staff is a constant source of joy to me and I consider it a privilege to be part of both schools, which provide the very best for every child in school
