I have been a Church elected Governor since July 2015 and have recently taken on the role of Chair. I became a Governor at Ingrave Johnstone as I am committed to the school’s Christian ethos and believe that all children deserve an outstanding education with a broad curriculum in a caring, nurturing environment. I have a son and daughter in Key Stage 2. I work for a Professional Services Firm based in the City as Manager of Operations overseeing HR, Recruitment, Marketing and Technical Support. I believe my extensive Administrative experience lends support to the governors and the school.
I have two boys, the elder of whom started at the school in 2016. I became a Diocesan appointed governor in 2017 and am excited about being involved in supporting our school. I believe it is important that children be nurtured to achieve their academic and personal potential within a supportive environment. I also believe it is important they are given the opportunity to understand the love of God and the values of Christianity. Before becoming a Mum, I was a teacher both in the U.K. and in international schools in Hong Kong. I hope I can bring some of this experience to contribute to the life of Ingrave Johnstone.
I was appointed as a parent governor in December 2018. My husband and I have a daughter in the Infants and a toddler. I am passionate about education because I believe that all children should have access to a high standard of education in a nurturing environment that helps them to achieve their potential. I am a Solicitor Advocate, specialising in Family law at an Essex based law firm with over 10 years' experience. I believe my professional and personal skills, along with my compassionate approach can be used on the positive journey Ingrave Johnstone is on to improve our children's education and elevate them by preparing them for success in their futures.
