I have been involved with Acton School since 1988 when my eldest daughter Sarah started in Reception. My other two children, Richard and Katy also attended – Katy leaving in 2004. During that time I have served on the Governing Body as Parent Governor, Community Governor and served two terms as Chair of Governors. Now that Acton has become a member of the Real Life Learning Multi Academy Trust, I took on the role of Vice Chair as the Ex Offio Director appointed by the Diocese. (I also serve on the Members Board of the Academy.)
I am a partner in our family farm and have been involved in that business since 1982. I am also Secretary and Treasurer of Acton Parish Hall.
I have always been honoured to be involved with Acton School – a school which, thanks to the hard work of all the staff, pupils and governors is a very successful rural primary school which has been at the heart of the community for many generations. My husband and his brother and sister were pupils at Acton and their father was a governor. I am equally honoured to now be involved with Calveley which is also a successful rural school with the same ethos. I look forward to helping to ensure that both Acton & Calveley Schools continue to develop, grow and provide the highest standard of education for current and future generations.
