Staff Governor - Term ends 29.09.2024  

I have worked at Town Lane Infant School since 2006 and currently teach in Foundation 2- Early Years Lead. For the last three years I have been part of the Leadership Team, with responsibility for Early Years. As a teacher governor, I feel that I can give good insight into the day-to-day life at the school and also be involved in shaping the future of Town Lane. I want the children at our school to achieve the best they possibly can and leave us well prepared for the next stage of their education, with lasting, happy memories of the years spent with us.
