With a military background, I developed a passion for teaching and supporting troops ready for operations overseas. When my full time military career came to an end, I decided to look into working in the civilian education and training sector. Where I’ve had both delivery and managerial roles, working mostly with children and young people but also adults.
Having specialist responsibilities on the Governing board for Safeguarding, I take this very seriously and firmly believe everyone should work hard to ensure children and young people are kept safe from any form of harm.
Being a qualified and current Designated Safeguarding Leader and also the Safeguarding Governor for a number of years now. This has helped me gain a very firm grasp of the safeguarding requirements needed at Cathedral Academy at both a ground and also strategic level.
As well as being the Safeguarding Governor, I’m also involved in other important matters with regards to the development and success of the school. I have thoroughly enjoyed this role over the last few years and there’s a fantastic team of professionals working at Cathedral Academy who have done wonders for the school.
