About me

I have 3 children who have all been educated at Woolston Community Primary School, my older children Amy 27 and Craig 25, have both gone on to forge successful careers in their chosen fields. My youngest, child, Lucy, is currently attending Birchwood College and is in her 2nd year. I also have 2 adorable grandchildren Harry & Maisey.

Having been involved in the governing body for many years, I have seen many changes, I was also the current chair when the school was awarded It’s ‘Outstanding’ status in 2009. I have every confidence that as a school we are well on our way to regaining this status, this is due to the hard work and dedication that continues each and every day
