(Member of Finance Committee. Link Governor to PHSE)
I have a strong interest in Safeguarding and giving young people the right tools to stay safe online. I have worked as a journalist for the BBC for 25 years. In the last five years I have reported extensively on the dangers associated with certain online behaviours and platforms. I have reported on the work of the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre, the NSPCC and the Internet Watch Foundation especially around safeguarding initiatives. This gives me a unique perspective on helping young people get the very best from their online experiences, while preparing them to be aware of the threats that exist there too. I have a son in year 9. I also run a boys rugby team in Hampstead.
I have no relevant business or financial interests. No governance roles at other schools.
Term of office: to 20th September 2019
