I have been a parent governor at Blackrod Primary School since October 2014. I welcomed this exciting opportunity to become more involved in the school and to watch the children progress and develop through learning in a safe and stimulating environment.
I am a member of the Finance and HR Committee. In addition all governors are linked to year groups. My links are with Years 6.
I work as a Plant Manager for Heroux Devtek, who specialise in the design, development, manufacture and repair and overhaul of landing gear and actuation systems and components for the Aerospace market.
The skills I bring as a governor are, Financial management and general management skills, good understanding of IT, good listening and negotiation skills, an understanding of contracts and governance of projects.
I have two sons (Robert and Sam) at Blackrod Primary School.
