My daughter attended Woodcote from Nursery until she left in 2012. I have been a Governor at Woodcote since 2007, starting as a Parent Governor of the Infant School and continuing that role through the formation of Woodcote Primary School and am now a Co-opted Governor; I am pleased to continue to support our fantastic school! I am also a Governor at another Croydon school and a member of Croydon Councils Education Scrutiny Committee so have a good rounded view on Education matters. Professionally I work in software/telecoms and have lived locally for nearly 20 years.

  I was appointed as a Co-opted Governor in January 2015.  My professional skills are centred around Education, having retired only last year following nine years of Headship at a large primary school in Croydon.  During my time as Headteacher, I led the school through three very successful Ofsted Inspections.  Throughout my career, I have worked in Croydon schools and my three children also went to Croydon schools.  I feel privileged to be a Governor of Woodcote Primary School.  I hope that through my passion for high standards of education for all children, together with my professional skills and experience, that I will be able to make a valuable contribution to the excellent work of the Governing Body.

I have three children, two of which attend Woodcote in Year 1 and Woodies nursery. I have been on the governing body since March 2014. I am both a qualified primary school teacher and Educational Psychologist. After teaching for 5 years I decided to pursue a career in Educational Psychology. I currently work as an Educational Psychologist in Croydon for schools local to the Coulsdon area. I therefore have extensive knowledge of education and learning particularly in the field of Special Educational Needs. Both living and working in Coulsdon has enabled me to become very familiar with the local area and community.
