Spire Junior School





Welcome from the Chair of Governors



I am delighted to take up my first governors role at Spire Junior. I have been a governor at Spire Junior School since May 2017 and was appointed to Chair in December 2017. I am also Chair of the resource committee and link governor for literacy. I am married with a Son at primary school . My background is in Health and Social care and I worked for Birmingham city council as a reviewing, purchasing and monitoring officer for 16 years from which I can bring my knowledge of budgets and managing resources and partnership working with families and the community. I currently work part time as a volunteer at a Law Firm charity which offers free advice and support to Derbyshire residents in need of legal advice. I also volunteer as reading support at Spire Junior School and another local primary school. Being part of the governing body has enabled me to see the opportunities given to the children to help and assist them to achieve their own personal goals. I am passionate about high quality education and each and every child reaching their full potential.
