Our best alwaysGovernor Meeting Minutes
Full Governing Body Minutes
From Our Chair of Governors
I was very pleased to be able to join the governing body at Little Paxton Primary School earlier this year, and in September 2022, I was very privileged to become the Chair.
I have worked in education for over 25 years, and was a Middle School headteacher for several years. In 2022 I took a different career direction, although still linked to schools, it is very different to my former role. I completed coach training and am now a freelance coach and consultant. I currently support secondary school as a consultant leader, and am a coach and mentor to school leaders in a range of schools. I am also a school improvement advisor, working predominantly with primary schools and I also coach and facilitate on the National Professional Qualification for Headship programme. I also run training programmes for school leaders and governors in a variety of areas.
I live locally, up in Wyboston with my husband and a growing collection of animals. I enjoy running with my dogs (slowly), horse riding and generally being outside.
I have been involved with governing bodies for many years as part of my school leader role. I have always appreciated, as a headteacher, the time and support governors gave to me and to the school as volunteers and wanted to be able to do this myself.
Most of my current work is within Bedfordshire and Luton. Looking for potential governor roles, I decided to try new pastures and living so close, Cambridgeshire was a logical choice. Little Paxton was looking for governors, so I was pleased to be linked with you.
I look forward to being able to support Mrs Moore and her team to continue to improve Little Paxton Primary and make sure it is the best school it can be, ensuring that your children get the best start to their education.
As the vision states, “Together, we grow deep roots in learning and strong wings to soar”. This is what Little Paxton is all about.
