I have been a Governor at Dovecot school for about 17 years and have been the Chair of Governors for 8 years. During this time, I have seen many changes, in particular, from the old leaky building, to our bright, modern welcoming building.
I have particular responsibility for Child Protection and I am on the Curriculum and Resources Committees. I attend meetings regularly and enjoy visiting the school where I always find a warm welcome, happy children, dedicated staff and a lovely, safe environment.
I am very proud of Dovecot School, its children and the staff and Governors, who work together to promote the highest standards of education. I feel very honoured and privileged to be part of the team at Dovecot School, and hope that in some small way, we are helping our children towards a brighter and better future through a good education.
I have been Headteacher at Dovecot Primary School since January 2016.
Throughout this time I have worked relentlessly to improve the opportunities, experiences and education of all the children, and this has been such a pleasure to do as the children are delightful to be with, their parents are very supportive and the staff are creative, hardworking professionals.
All the Governors have the interests of the school community at the heart of their work and they, too, are supporting me through many exciting initiatives - as well being right behind me during the more challenging times! They have also been there celebrating our successes.
I have always been totally committed to the job – it fills me with pride to see the children as well as the staff, blossom and grow over
their time with us and despite the various political agendas I have steered the school through calm waters, trying to make the right decisions based on our core values, about what the children in Dovecot Primary School need in order to grow into successful adults, able to play their part in what is an uncertain, and constantly evolving future.
I am the Headteacher of Mosspits Lane Primary School in Wavertree and a community governor of Dovecot Primary School I believe in working to improve the opportunities, experiences and education of all children. I am totally committed to the job – it fills me with pride to see the children of Dovecot as well as the staff, blossom and grow over their time at the school and I am proud to be part of a governing body which strives to ensure that the children have what they need in order to grow into successful adults and be able to play their part in what is an uncertain, and constantly evolving future.
I have been a parent at Dovecot Primary School since January 2004 and I became a Governor in the September.
I have three sons, the youngest is currently a pupil in key stage one and really loves it; the other 2 have gone onto do very well in secondary school, having been given a firm foundation in learning at Dovecot.
One of my hobbies is being a Scout Leader which involves working with some of the children from Dovecot. I also enjoy reading, some of my favourites being the Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter series.
As a parent, we only really see a snippet of what goes on through the academic life of our own children, but as a Governor I have had the privilege of seeing how the school ticks behind the scenes and how hard everyone works; from the Head Teacher and staff to the caretaker, office staff, dinner ladies and fellow governors. Every adult in this school has or children’s best interests in both their hearts and minds.
I am proud to be part of the Dovecot Primary Community both as a parent and as a co-opted Governor and I look forward to seeing your children grow both physically and educationally as they progress through the years and receive their rewards for the hard work and effort they each put in.
I became a Governor for Dovecot Primary School in February 2016 and I really enjoy visiting the school and meeting with children, parents and teachers and sharing in their many achievements. I work full time for one of the local universities in teacher training, and before this taught I.T. in secondary school. I have three grown up sons and hope to use my experiences as a mother and as a teacher to improve outcomes for all children. It is a privilege to be part of this positive, warm and friendly community at Dovecot Primary.
