I am a Local Authority governor at Spalding Primary School. At present Vice Chairman, a position held for the last eight years. I have been involved in education in the Spalding area for the last 25 years and a governor at SPS for more than 10. I go into school on a regular basis to listen to the children read. My responsibilities also cover ensuring all safeguarding policies and procedures are in place and adhered to. My working career was with H.M. Revenue & Customs until retirement some years ago. I live locally, have 2 children and 2 grandchildren.
I am currently employed at the school as Site Manager and have been in this role for eight years. Prior to that, I gained eleven years Site Manager experience at the William Stukeley School in Holbeach. I feel that in my role as a Staff Governor I am an asset to the Board of Governors due to my knowledge of working within a school environment for so many years. I enjoy not just working here but also getting involved in school activities. I am married to Jayne and live in the local community. I served in the military for thirty years.
I'm married with 2 children at the school. I have been impressed with the way the school continues to improve. Spalding Primary provides a safe, stable and supportive environment for the children to learn and grow both academically and as they journey through their lives. I will play my part in ensuring the school continues to meet their obligations to enable this to continue.
