I joined the Governing Body as a Parent Governor in the autumn term of 2015. I have a son who is currently in Year 8, who has an Autism Spectrum Condition; I also have an older son with Aspergers. I have experience of looking after a child with complex medical disabilities. I was previously a Parent Governor at Benton Dene School. My background is in Counselling, and I have delivered Early Support Workshops to parents in North Tyneside alongside a member of the Disability & Additional Needs team, and I was instrumental in setting up some Parent Support groups. I hope that I can use some of my skills to help Southlands continue to provide an excellent nurturing learning environment for our children.
