Hello.  I’m Jules Swain and I’m a mum of three children who have all been fortunate enough to have benefited from the Water Street experience.  My two eldest have now left  but I currently have 1 son in Year 5.  I became a governor at Water Street this year but have also been a governor at Otley Street Nursery School for a number of years.  I started there as a parent governor and have stayed to serve as a community governor.

My background is in education. I am a former secondary school teacher of English and pastoral leader and currently work in examining at GCSE level so naturally have an interest in anything related to literacy.  Generally, my interests as a governor are concerned with helping the school to provide children with the opportunity to gain as rounded an experience as possible from their primary school education
