Sarah Laverick_b_n_w


I have a daughter Abigail in Year 2, and my youngest Emily in Nursery on an afternoon. I also have an older daughter, now 18 who went to Normanby Primary School.


What are your activities and interests?

I have been a Civil Servant for just over 28 years in a variety of Departments starting at the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food from age 18 (yes it really was like James Herriot!) until now where I am based locally in Middlesbrough and work for the Department of Work and Pensions.

My interests revolve mainly around my family including trying to stay fit especially after Christmas! I have just taken up Zumba! I love walking, although the longer walks are on hold at present while our girls get a bit older. The girls love making cakes and biscuits. I am involved with fostering dogs at present and currently have a 9 month old Labrador who is destined to become a sniffer dog for Frankland Prison in Durham. We have had him a month and expect him to be here for about 6 months. If he fails his assessment as a working dog we may keep him as a pet. I also try to help with a local dog charity Save Our Strays through a close friend. We previously fostered a dog for them.


How long have you been on the Governing body?

Just over a year.


Why did you become a governor?

I always wanted to be a Governor when my oldest daughter was at Normanby Primary school but just didn’t make the step of applying. When the post became vacant for a parent governor I felt I wanted to be more involved with the school and getting to know more of how it was run, as I will be coming to school for a good many years yet.


Whats your favourite TV program or film and why?

Currently I really enjoy Call The Midwife. My favourite film is a hard question as I like watching Disney films with the girls but also love the old ones like A Wonderful Life.


Whats your favourite savoury/sweet food?

Brie and crackers.

Anything that contains cake or pastry usually wins me over! However Marzipan is my absolute passion, no one dares come between me and a Thorntons Marzipan bar!


Anything else to add?

Anyone who wishes to speak to me or is interested in finding out more can contact me by email at or through the school office.
