Mrs Jannine McCarthy (Co-opted Governor)
My name is Jannine and I have been part of the community in Wirksworth for the last 18 years now, although we always loved coming here before that and I have family connections going back a couple of centuries! I have 2 children, one of whom is at the junior school. I work for the County Council in Public Health.
When I was a child, I loved my time at school and didn't want it to end! I want the same positive experience for my children, their friends and other local children, which is why I wanted to become a governor.
I am in my fourth year now and hopefully understand more fully the importance of the governor role in school. We have an important job to do to steer the school through some challenging times to come, but with the help and support of parents and staff I'm sure that we will succeed.
