As the mother of two children at Wirskworth Juniors, I am proud to be a parent governor because I am driven by a desire to get the best for all the children at Wirksworth Junior School, as well as their families and the wider community. I aim to support the school to ensure that their strategic development aims are achieved; however, when appropriate, I do not hesitate to ask questions, and challenge the work of the Head Teacher and the senior leadership team to ensure the school is constantly striving to provide a broad and balanced curriculum as well as meeting strong academic targets. As a primary school teacher myself, I feel I have the relevant skills and expertise to actively support the development of Wirksworth Junior School. Even though I am a teacher, my involvement at Wirksworth Junior School is as a parent. I would always work to make sure that different perspectives are considered to support and strengthen the school’s position within the community.
