There are several reasons why I wanted to be a Parent Governor to be honest. Firstly, I really wanted to have a say (or at least some say) in the education my daughter gets. I felt that being on the board was a good way of doing that. It gives me an insight into the workings of the school and a voice. Being part of this process is important. Education at infant and junior age is essential and something that my wife and I take very seriously, therefore becoming part of the system as it were, was an obvious choice to make.

Secondly, I think that being part of a collective many, rather than a select few is paramount. Community spirit is something that seems to be becoming less important to people but not I. I believe that being a governor at Normanby Primary is me helping the community , albeit it in a small part. I have lived in Normanby for 17 years now, longer than anywhere I’ve ever lived and I am proud to call the place my home. In general, the people are fantastic and it’s a lovely place to live and so I want to repay it any way I can.

Another reason is simply that I wanted to do something for myself that I found interesting and different. I thought this would be a way of achieving that.

To finish, Normanby Primary is a wonderful school with a brilliant set of teachers and staff. My wife, sister-in-law and many friends all attended and now my child is doing the same. I’m proud that I too can be a part of that.
