Leeds City Council Children’s Services (Commissioning Officer)

I have worked in Children’s Services in Leeds for the last ten years. Prior to this I have worked in financial services and hospitality.  

I am really passionate that each child deserves a positive start in life and a good education.  I believe primary schools have the unique ability to set good foundations for life and to ensure children feel happy and secure.  I chose to be a school governor so I can play a small part in supporting the Headteacher and school staff, alongside the other governors, in making this happen. 

Also being a school governor gives me the opportunity to see things from the 'other side’ of my day job in Children’s Services.  

I am chair of the resources committee. I also sit on the pay committee, Headteacher Performance Management committee and teaching and learning committee. I think my experience of working in Children’s Services and financial services lends itself to these responsibilities.
