Barbara Porter - Foundation Governor

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.
