Donna Birrell Foundation Governor

I am a qualified primary school teacher and am currently employed as a Senior Lecturer in Education where I am involved in Initial Teacher Education. I have been teaching for 20 years, formerly in various primary schools in Kent, but latterly in Higher Education.

I joined the governing body in November 2015 because I am keen to remain involved in the education of children within the local community. My daughters have both benefited from excellent primary school experiences in the local area, and as they are now progressing through secondary schooling, I feel it is time to give something back in return. I am therefore very happy to be appointed onto the governing body (and the Teaching and Learning committee) where my experience as a parent, teacher and teacher educator can be utilised in supporting Swalecliffe in a positive and constructive way.
