I have two children at The Mead (Wingfield site) and have become a Governor in order to be more involved in school life.  I have been working in the arts education sector for 15 years and I am currently Development Manager for Wiltshire Music Connect where I lead on schools and curriculum. The Mead is a very special place where children thrive and I feel lucky to be part of the school community.

As an Academy Advisor I have the opportunity to be at the heart of the school which contributes greatly to our community, and I believe it is important to have parents’ voices heard and ensure that our children thrive and enjoy their primary school years in a supportive environment. With over 20 years in the Army, including time as an instructor, I hope to bring an alternative view to the development of The Mead providing my experience to the Head Teacher and the senior staff.
