    Parent Governor

    I'm a parent governor for St Josephs Primary School. I have done this role since September 2017, and have thoroughly enjoyed it. I currently have 1 daughter at the school, and another who last year finished at St Josephs to move on to secondary school.
    In my day job I'm a Civil Engineering Technician for Devon County Council and I use my work experience to help in my role as a governor. I am the lead governor for Health & Safety in the school, and so my day job fits nicely into this.
