I have been a governor at Sandside Lodge for two years and got involved originally through my role as Volunteer and Community Involvement Officer for the National Trust at Fell Foot. The 6th form classes have done some amazing conservation and exploration work at Fell Foot through the John Muir Award, and I have really enjoyed working with them. As part of my role as a governor I have had the privilege of been involved with the Move Award, and can see what a positive difference the staff can help make with the children through this programme.

I joined as a parent governor of the school in 2020. My daughter Ayla has severe cerebral palsy with complex needs and has attended Sandside School since 2011, something she very much enjoys.
