Local Governing Body
Woodlands Academy is governed by a Local Governing Body
The membership of the Local Governing Body is:
|This is my first role on a Governing Body.|
I began my teaching career in Wimbledon, London where I taught in a girls' preparatory school. I then moved to North East Lincolnshire and have been a proud member of the Woodlands staff for many years, first as a class teacher, then a member of the Senior Leadership Team, an Assistant Head, Deputy Head and currently Headteacher.
Although much of my career has been at Woodlands, I have experienced many different approaches to education at Woodlands.
I have worked as a leading teacher for the local authority, supporting other schools and more recently have supported with the East of England Initial Teacher Training Centre as a Quality Assurance Tutor.
|I have been on many governing bodies over the past 20 years in different roles. I have experienced a great deal of different ways of working and ensured that I keep up to date with training and developments. Further to this I have delivered training to governing bodies over the past 10 years and coached new governors in making a difference in support and challenge.|
|I have been Headteacher of a local school for the past 10 years in a high deprivation zone, as a team we have developed the school from a severe decline to a consistent upward trajectory for 9 years and have a secure GOOD judgement. I have worked in 5 schools across different authorities and have held leadership positions for the past 20 years. As a teacher I have taught all primary age ranges and lead all subjects. As an LLE I have delivered training in many different authorities and supported other leaders to develop further. I am also a coach for the DFE Women leaders in Education programme and a Pupil Premium Reviewer. I am open to new opportunities to collaborate and develop personally. I am lucky to consider myself to have the best job in the world.|
|1 years previous experience as governor at Woodlands Primary School before the school turned into an academy.|
|I currently work at Grimsby Town Sports & Education Trust (GTSET) as our Schools Sports Programme Officer. I have worked at GTSET for almost 15 years, in this time I have delivered numerous sport and educational sessions to different schools across the region. I have a degree in Football Coaching, Development & Administration, Level 4 PSHE delivery in schools, Level 3 afPE and other Level 2 NGBs in sports such as football, multi skills, basketball and athletics to name a few.|

|This is my first role as a school governor and I am proud to be part of such an enthusiastic and driven board of governors. It is an exciting time for Woodlands Academy and I am thrilled to play a role as both teacher and governor to help steer the already rapid progression of the school into the future.|
|Leaving school at 18, I completed an accountancy apprenticeship before becoming a finance officer for Sure Start. Circumstances somehow then found me as an Estate Agent and Lettings Manager until serious illness while pregnant prompted me to re-evaluate my career choices. I took time out to be a stay-at-home mum while teaching myself A-level sociology and going on to gain a first class honours degree in Education Studies and Special Educational Needs and Inclusion. Completion of a PGCE in 2014 allowed me to become a primary school teacher which had always been a childhood dream. I have now been at Woodlands Academy for two years and I absolutely love it.|
