I have been involved in primary education all my working life, first as a teacher, followed by seventeen years as headteacher of two successful Lincolnshire schools. I am married with two adult children, and we now enjoy spending time with our five grandchildren.
I first became a school governor in 1992, and have been part of a governing body ever since, as teacher, headteacher and community governor, joining Heighington Millfield Governing Body on my retirement in 2015. I became Chair of Governors when Heighington Millfield joined the Priory Academies Trust.
I bring to the Governing Body my skills in leading teams, a love of lifelong learning and a knowledge of effective assessment and teaching practices. I work with governors and staff to ensure the school we serve provides the best possible educational environment for all our children.
I have been a resident in the Heighington/Washingborough area for over 25 years and am a long standing School Governor at Millfield Primary School. I have three children who, although adults now, enjoyed being pupils at Millfield School.
I have a BA (Hons) in Applied Economics/Geography and an MBA. I also have lengthy experience in business in the UK and overseas which I believe is of benefit to the overall management and governance of the school.
I have lived in Heighington for 6 years, and with my son now thoroughly enjoying his time at Millfield, I am very proud to be a new parent governor for the school. Together with my wife, we all enjoy the wonderful countryside both on Heighington's doorstep and further afield , walking, cycling and generally getting out into the fresh air.
Working in Lincoln for a large engineering firm I bring to the governing body skills and experience from business such as leadership, team working and investigative and analytical competence; all which will help me add value to the existing governors board in our duties and responsibilities.
I am a Community Governor at Millfield Primary Academy and my Term of Office ends February 2022: I am a Management Accountant, working alongside local business, and have done so all my professional life.I have 2 children, my son has now left the school, having joined in Reception up to Year 6, and I currently have a daughter in Year 5.My motivation to become a governor was a simple one, in that it gave me a chance to give something back and support my local school.
