I have been a Governor at Hillcrest since April 2013. At the time that Hillcrest were recruiting for Governors I was looking for a community interest to get involved with. I had been an active committee member with the sports group that my children had been involved with for a number of years and as they moved on to university I was looking for a new opportunity.

I became part of the governance back in September 2013 to gain a better understanding of financial terminology. Since being on the governors, I've represented the teaching staff and I've supported the governors to understand the data and the standards of teaching and learning at Hillcrest.

I became a governor at Hillcrest when my eldest daughter started in nursery. It is a great privilege to be part of Team Hillcrest and I love to see all the children encouraged to be the best they can possibly be whilst being taught in an environment where they feel safe and secure. I am excited to see what is in store for Hillcrest in 2017 and beyond.

The reason I became a governor was to inspire and make a positive difference to the lives of children, whilst expanding my skills/knowledge of primary education.

I first became a governor of Hillcrest quite a few years ago before it became an academy but due to work commitments had to leave. Now ,after reducing my work hours, I have been fortunate to have been asked back. This gives me a sense of contributing to the community through assisting and maintaining the wellbeing of this school.

 I have been a governor for just over a year, I made the decision to be involved in the school my children attended and show my support. I enjoy being part of the team and hope to be more actively involved in the future.

I have been a governor for about 14 months, my initial interest was due to having 2 grandchildren at the school therefore from a personal point of view I felt I'd like to know more about what happens in the background and maybe lend my opinions on occasions. It's satisfying to know at grass roots what a huge success the school is on every level.

I joined Hillcrest as an honorary governor in September 2016 after helping to organize an archaeological dig at the school in May. I live in Lincoln, and teach at the University there, but I am Gainsborough born and bred, and I attended our school a long, long, long time ago when it was known as Heapham Road Infants. I love being on the Hillcrest team, and have a particular interest in helping the school to be at the heart of the local community.
