Mrs Lucy Emmerson

I am a co-opted governor and have been a member of the Governing Body for approximately 12 years.  I work for Stockton Borough Council and manage the School and Governor Support Service so understanding governance and the legislation surrounding Education is certainly a strength that I bring to the Board.  Working for the Local Authority for some 30 years brings a wealth of knowledge about the various services and departments, this is a valuable asset in providing help and support to governors.   I am a mam of two wonderful children who are 17 and 19 so have also experienced supporting them through their journey through education.  I am passionate about education and schools and really do enjoy the work that the Governing Body undertakes in ensuring that we have a safe and secure learning environment whilst providing an excellent standard of education for each and every child attending the school.
