I am a community governor at Hillyfield and I joined in January 2017. I have been involved with the school for a number of years as my three children all attend. As well as sitting on both the Resources and Education and Standards Committees, I have a specific role as a link governor for Pupil Premium funding. I am really looking forward to making a difference in this area and to putting my professional skills to good use to ensure that pupils from all backgrounds benefit from a fantastic education and range of opportunities. I have worked as an economist and civil servant for all my career and it is great to be able to put that experience to use in a different way to help and support Hillyfield to be the very best it can be.
