Tracy Gardiner (Chair of Governors)

As a parent of two girls at the school, I am conscious of the importance of a good start in primary school for all children so that each and every child has the maximum opportunity to fulfil their potential.  My career in local government has helped me to understand the business of running good public services and I want to support and challenge the governing body to ensure that the school continues to be a great place to learn and work.

I am really enthusiastic about education and its importance in all of our lives. I am happy to help the school as much as I can.  I have two sons both of whom are pupils at the school.  I work in the legal and compliance team at Celesio UK and find my legal training is helpful in performing my role as a trustee at the school.  I grew up in Northern Ireland and now live in Muston.
