Being part of a village community is very important to me, in particular, I believe this helps give children a sense of belonging that stays with them all their lives. I am an experienced teacher of 16-18 year olds and hope to draw upon this experience as a governor. The children at Upwell are happy and well supported in their academic education, with high expectations and quality learning experiences. There are a wealth of activities which give the children the opportunity to develop their self confidence and sense of self. As a governor my aim is to ensure that this continues in the forthcoming years.
Elected Parent Council Member
I am a parent of two young boys that attend Upwell Academy. I decided to put myself forward for the position of parent governor as I have a keen interest in the education of the pupils , their welfare and how the school is run. My interests are broad but going forward are keyed toward outdoor learning, the curriculum, school council and behaviour. At home my sports degree was my platform for sports therapy and massage and I currently work as a therapist now. I hope that I can do justice to my appointment and successfully carry out my duties for the Academy.
