As a Parent Governor for the last four years, I have witnessed both of my children flourish during their time at Stanhope Barrington C of E Primary School. I am a member of a number of committees within the Governing body, but my particular skill set is within Finance committee, given my professional background. I have changed careers and retrained as a Teacher in a Secondary School, so I take a keen interest in how Stanhope Barrington staff motivate and use the curriculum to inspire the children to achieve their full potential.
Having moved to Stanhope in 2000, I have witnessed some fundamental developments – all of which have contributed to the continual improvements within the school. The endless time and dedication of all of the staff never ceases to amaze me – as parents we should not forget how privileged and fortunate we are to have such an outstanding school on our doorstep.
