It is a pleasure and privilege to be the Head teacher of Watford Field School Infant and Nursery. I work in collaboration with the Governing body in all areas of school life. At Governors’ meetings I am held to account – governors play a crucial role as a critical friend to ensure strategic decisions are made in the best interests of the school. I am extremely lucky to have an excellent team of staff at the school who create a safe environment and ethos where children are valued, nurtured and encouraged enabling them to thrive, develop and achieve ready for lifelong learning.
I joined the Governing Body as a Parent Governor in March 2013 and am now a Co-opted Governor. After being Vice-Chair for a year, I was elected as Chair of Governors in September 2017. I have 3 daughters who have been through Watford Field Infant and Nursery School; my youngest daughter is now at the Juniors and then my other 2 daughters are at Rickmansworth secondary school. I have always tried to play an active part at the infants, including volunteering and being part of the parents association, FOFI (Friends of Field Infants). As well as being a busy mum, I also work part-time in Learning and Development for a car finance company. I feel honoured to be part of this school community and that I am able to make a contribution in the education of our children.
I am the school Office Manager and have worked at Watford Field Infants & Nursery School for over 8 years. I became our staff governor in 2017 and enjoy being able to support the school within this role.
I am a mum to two boys and enjoy fitness in my spare time.
I am a mother to 3 daughters and have been a nurse for more than 30 years.
I have had links with the school for 15 years, as a parent and professional. I am very happy to be continuing my relationship with Field Infants as a co-opted governor.
I joined as a parent governor in 2018 when my son started in Reception. I have 2 children and I work in marketing and fundraising for a local charity supporting children and adults with learning disabilities. I am passionate about ensuring all children have an equal opportunity to reach their full potential and enjoy their learning journey through school. I am an active member of FOFI (Friends of Field Infants) and enjoy helping raise funds for the school.
I have fond memories of attending Watford Field Infants School and I am privileged to be able to give something back.
I have loved all things IT from an early age and am fortunate enough to have carried that forward into my career where I work in Financial Services as a Chief Information Security Officer. I bring skills in technology and business operations to the board and I feel very strongly about privacy and the digital rights of children.
Having initially been an active member of the PTA (FoFI), I became a Parent Governor when my daughter was in Year 1 and I saw first hand the good foundation the school gives the children – both as individuals and academically. I have always been passionate about supporting young people to achieve their best despite any barriers. My background is in supporting many youth charities across a 20+ year career. As a Governor, I hope to use my skills and expertise to help maintain and to further develop the potential of the school for both its staff and pupils.
