Chair of Governors

I believe strongly that all children can benefit from an excellent education particularly those from challenging backgrounds.

I believe strongly that all children can benefit from an excellent education particularly those from challenging backgrounds and I am committed to helping to achieve this. Identifying and supporting individual student needs and well-being will allow them to achieve their full potential. Ensuring they are provided with the foundation blocks for their futures as adults will give them the best chance of achieving social mobility.

I have been a governor at a post-16 college for 3 years and actively sought an opportunity to work with key stage 1.

I have lived in Halifax all my life. I have 4 grown up children and 6 grandchildren. I grew up in what is considered a deprived area of Calderdale to disabled elderly parents. I have previously worked in special educational needs but have spent the last 20 years in the social housing sector. I often see many of our former students becoming my future customers.

I firmly believe that enrichment is important in the shaping of our young people.

I am very privileged to serve as a Governor at Akroydon Primary Academy and am excited about working with the school.

I have worked in education for over 15 years, with the last five years being as a Senior Leader in two local secondary schools. I have also previously been a Governor in another local primary academy. In terms of school improvement, I have particular interests in curriculum design and quality assurance systems in ensuring overall standards are maintained.

I am a qualified teacher of Physical Education and a keen sportsman. I firmly believe that enrichment is important in the shaping of our young people. I look forward to seeing what Akroydon Primary Academy offers the students in terms of extra-curricular activities.

I am very pleased to be given the opportunity to serve as a governor for Akroydon Primary School.

I am very pleased to be given the opportunity to serve as a governor for Akroydon Primary School.

I firmly believe that children are our future and every child deserves to be given an equal opportunity to develop their potential in life through quality education.

I have previously held a governors position for over 8 years with a Calderdale school and now look forward to contributing towards the progression in achieving a ‘Outstanding’ status, which is the aim of everyone involved with the school and our children deserve our dedication to achieve this.

I have lived in Halifax for over 30 years, and presently work for a local housing provider who provides over 11,000 homes in Calderdale.
