Hello my name is Pat McKenzie-Elliott and I have been a governor at Pinderfields since October 2021. I have worked in Education for 25 years, 20 of those in Primary schools as a school business manager. I wanted to work on the front line as I am passionate about providing our children with the best start in life, especially within education. I am nearing retirement and wanted to give something back; so when I saw the vacancy for governor at my grandchildren’s’ school, it seemed the perfect opportunity as there is a great need across the county for school governors. I could see the dedication of the staff and their commitment to pastoral care and hope that I can support them in the coming years.
