I chose to be a Governor of Chantlers as I am committed to the long-term success of the
school. I work in a secondary school.
As I had been the Staff Governor at a local Primary School until my retirement and there
were vacancies at other schools, I chose to continue being a School Governor.
When I am not attending Governor's meetings, I enjoyed many hobbies including sewing,
reading, knitting, gardening, theatre and restaurant visits. Along with my husband, I visit
our caravan regularly and am a national-level Athletic official.
I am a retired Police Officer and Local Councillor.
I have been a Governor at Chantlers since 2018.
I chose to become a school Governor as I believe in the idea that every child matters and
has a right to education which serves them and their individual needs. I want to be an
advocate for all children to give them the best possible start in education and to allow them
to be fully prepared for the journey ahead.
I am a police officer and my primary role is the dedicated football officer for Bolton
Wanderers. In my spare time, I enjoy going to the gym, running and supporting Bolton
I chose to become a school governor to help the school improve and develop. I am very keen to make sure all children are safeguarded and can fulfil their potential regardless of their special educational needs, disabilities or background.
I am a head chef and I have been one for over ten years. I have a lot of transferable skills, I manage and question budgets and spending, deal with health and safety issues and make difficult decisions.
