Associate Governor


Kidspiration Childcare and Education (Director and Manager)

I have been working in the childcare sector since 1998. I have a wealth of experience and knowledge of how children learn and develop. I have a BA (HONS) in Early Childhood Studies as well as the Status of Early Years Professional.  I have worked for a National Charity as a Childcare Development Manager developing childcare provision in Leeds and Wakefield. From 2008-2013 I worked for a neighbouring Local Authority as an Equality and Access Officer.

In 2014, I opened Kidspiration Childcare and Education Limited in the grounds of Cobden Primary School. Kidspiration delivers the Free Early Education Entitlement (FEEE) for 2 Year Olds. In June 2014 we achieved Outstanding in our first Ofsted inspection. Kidspiration continues to be the only provider in Leeds to solely offer FEEE as a private provider in the grounds of a Primary School as well as achieve Outstanding in our Ofsted inspection.

With support from my accountant I have a developing knowledge in interpreting my financial data to ensure Kidspiration continues to be a successful and sustainable business. I employ 6 people and have overall responsibility decision making and for all health and safety, safeguarding and HR issues. I am due to attend Safer Recruitment training on 2 February 2015. I also have experience in dismissal and grievance procedures as well as reviewing staff CPD.

I have a good understanding of Cobden Primary Schools strengths and areas for development that were made in the previous inspection. I consider myself to have a general understanding of the changes to the Curriculum and current Ofsted inspection criteria.
