Link governor: SIAMS /RE
As a person of faith, I love living and working in this vibrant inner-city community which is such a rich mix of culture, ethnicity and faith. I have been the Rector of the parish in which St Chad's is a church school since February 2011 and have lived in Normanton since taking up the role of Vicar at St Augustine's Church in May 2003. During this time, I have been a foundation governor at St Chad's, and have served as Chair of Governors since October 2015. Before being ordained I worked as a housing manager for the YMCA Housing Association in Sheffield and then in West London.

Link governor: SEND
I have been a governor since September 2017. I have run language school next door to the school for 7 years and wanted a chance to serve the local community by using my skills in English for speakers of another language to help St Chads Infants. I really enjoy engaging with the school and look forward to contributing more in the future.

Term of office: Head of School
I was appointed Head of School at St Chad's in September 2017. Previous to this I was Assistant Headteacher at Hardwick Primary School, responsible for the Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1, English and MFL. During my career I have been fortunate to teach in the Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. I have worked in two outstanding primary schools in two Local Authorities and I have also taught abroad in France and Belgium. In 2015 I became a Specialist Leader in Education for English and EAL.
