Sandra McCormack – Co-Opted Governor + Chair
- Originally from the North East I moved to the midlands in the late 1980s. I was a frequent returnee to see close family and friends here settled here in Whittingham in 2019.
- I worked for many years as a childcare social worker in local government and national charities before moving to national government programmes such as Sure Start, Childrens Centres and Early Help(0-19yr olds). In these roles I have worked with partners across the country and I now work on a freelance basis.
- I am a parent of adult children who are both involved in education and I love nothing more than to get together with them my extended family and friends as often as possible
- Throughout my career and my family life I have been totally committed to providing children with the best start in life and supporting families in doing so. I hope that I bring a wealth of personal and professional experience to the role of governor and chair
- I hope to be able to be more visible around school as Covid19 restrictions lift but can always be contacted via school
- Something you might not know is that a few years ago, with much encouragement, support and cajoling of my daughter and my best friend I went from “Couch Potato to Half Marathon” and completed the Great North Run, enjoying it enough to do it again 2 years later.
Janet Young - Co-opted Governor and Vice Chair.
I have lived in Whittingham for more than 30 years and my young family were
brought up in the village.
I have been retired for a number of years but my background is in education, both
in main stream and special schools and as a senior manager in a local authority
setting. I wanted to do whatever I could to support my local school and
community and when the opportunity came to be a governor, I felt that I could
do something positive for the children from the locality. I am really enjoying
being involved with such a unique school.
