I feel honoured to be on the Governing Body of West Lodge School. I've lived in Pinner for over 10 years and I have two sons at the school. I’m passionate about West Lodge’s commitment to being an inclusive school and I want to help all its children receive the support they need to thrive and realise their true potential.
After completing a Law degree and Masters in Law, I began my career as a lawyer and then became an ombudsman, issuing legally binding decisions taking into account relevant law, industry guidance and other evidence with a special focus on Equality Act related complaints. I discharged my responsibility conscientiously and my decisions were published and remain open to public scrutiny. After nearly 12 years, I chose to launch my own consultancy specialising in autism awareness education as this is a cause close to my heart.
As a parent governor, I’m delighted to be able to use my experience and professional insight to bring an intersectional lens to Governing Body discussions. I believe in the ethos and values of the school and feel privileged to serve on the Board.
