ACADEMY COUNCIL

The Sacred Heart Academy Council is a sub-committee of the St Gregory the Great Catholic Academy Trust Board.

Academy Council members have a legal duty to preserve and develop the Catholic character of the school, and a duty to monitor the schools’ statutory compliance as per the Trust’s Scheme of Delegation. They agree to abide by the Code of Conduct for the Academy Council.

The ministry of the Foundation Governor is an important one because the preservation of the Catholic character of a school depends on committed Catholics being willing to undertake this service. Bishop Marcus is therefore very appreciative of all those who offer to assist him in this vital task. Please visit the Leeds Diocese website for more information on becoming a Foundation Governor.

I have been involved in Catholic education for over 13 years as a secondary school teacher. My current role as lay chaplain in a Catholic secondary school allows me to support the ethos and spiritual life of the school community. As a parent of children at Sacred Heart, I am committed to ensuring all children feel valued as a member of our school community and are able to achieve their potential.

After 17 years in retail management and people development, I made the decision to retrain and pursue a career in education after volunteering at Sacred Heart alongside working full time. I saw first hand that the children were the number one priority and that we shared the same passion and values. I have experience in HR, training and development, employee wellbeing and finance. I am now behaviour support worker within the school supporting both staff and pupils throughout the school day. I have two children here and ultimately want what is best for pupils and to see them thrive socially, emotionally and academically.

I graduated as a teacher in 2022, after previously working in schools across York and Leeds.

I aim to bring a staff perspective to the discussion as staff governor, with the children's needs at the forefront of every decision made. I have such a passion for Sacred Heart and believe we always strive for excellence across all areas of education and wellbeing.
