I have a long association with Dursley Primary Academy Both professionally and personally. My youngest son experienced a very happy and successful Primary School education here during the 1990s, during which I became a teacher at the school.  My many years of teaching here in KS2 were very rewarding and fulfilling, and over the years I took on a variety of roles, most recently taking responsibility for RE across the school until my retirement in 2015. Having had such a long and happy association with the school, I am delighted that my granddaughter has now started her school career at Dursley Academy, which she is thoroughly enjoying!

I am a long standing member of the Church Choir at St James the Great in Dursley and currently serve as secretary to the Parochail Church Council. As a Foundation Governor, I feel I am especially placed to be able to offer support to the established relationship between the Church and the Academy as I have strong links to both establishments.

It is an honour to now serve on the Governing Body and I am delighted to be able to continue to offer my support to sucha thriving school community
