Governor Role: Finance
Date Joined: July 2015
Business Interests: None
My name is Sharon Smith and I am pleased to have been appointed Finance Governor due to my past experience as an Account Manager for over 18 years. I am looking forward to using my experience to make a positive contribution towards the school .
I am the proud mum of two boys, one of whom is currently attending Parklands in Year 1 and the other at Harrington in Year 5. I have been involved at Parklands since 2009 when my first son started nursery - where I eventually became the Chair of Friends of Parklands, of which I am still an active member.
I am a Teaching Assistant at Parklands, where my experience in school has allowed me to gain the necessary skills to have the ability to empathise with young children and have the ability to foster independence in children too – I find watching children progress is one of the best parts about working at the school!
I wanted to take an active interest in my son's education and support the school as much as possible. I believe that the school is a progressive one that places its pupils at the heart of all of its activities.
I am enjoying being a part of such a committed team and look forward to helping the school and its pupils flourish.
