Barbara Porter - Foundation Governor


Barbara Porter
Type: Foundation Governor

Date of appointment: 05/09/19

Term of office expiry: 31/08/23


Responsibilities: SEND Governor; RE Governor


I have been involved in St. Mary’s Parish community for 15 years, preparing young people for Confirmation and First Holy Communion.


Previously I worked in Sudan and Uganda for 13 years. I was teaching English and supporting women in the local villages as well as Catechetical  Work and training Catechists.


After working in Africa I returned to England and retrained to support children with Special Educational Needs. At the moment I work in two schools teaching children with specific learning difficulties. 


I hope that my experience in teaching and Catechetics will contribute to my service as a Governor at Saint Mary’s School.
