I am delighted to be a recently appointed governor at Pinders Primary School. I spent approximately 30 years in secondary education, teaching mainly German and also managing the MFL faculty. When I retired from this role in 2019, I knew that I would miss being involved with schools and students and therefore I began volunteering in primary schools, listening to the youngsters read (a role which I continue with). I was very happy to be asked to become further involved in the progress and development of the students and Pinders Primary by being invited to become a governor. I look forward to working with all interested parties to make sure that we all achieve the very best for our young people and to ensure that Pinders continues to be a school that is welcoming, happy and inclusive and sets itself high expectations for students and staff alike.
