Until my recent retirement I was the co-owner of Burton Teddy Bears pre-school playgroup and I am still an active member and supporter of Burton
Scout Group.

I became a Governor because I am a firm supporter of our school and as a church of England school, I believe it plays an important part in our community".

 

Mrs Danielle Jeffries

  • Role:  Staff Governor
  • Committee: Curriculum, Pupils, Parents and Community (CPPC)
  • Appointed:  September 2017

  • Business/Percuniary Interests:  None Declared
  • Attendance at meetings over last academic year, 2016-2017 : * out of * meetings
  • Attendance at meetings over this academic year, 2017-2018: 3 out of 4 meetings

"I have worked as a teacher for over 20 years and at Burton Primary School for the last 8. As a mother of 4 I have experienced both sides of playground life. I have served as a parent governor when my sons were at primary school and now that they are older I am keen to become involved as a governor once more. At present I teach in Key Stage 1 and have subject leadership roles for Worship and Art.

 

Outside of the classroom I enjoy all the arts but have a secret passion for dance and musical theatre – as observer not participator! I am a committed Christian and am involved in my local church as a youth leader. As the mother of 3 sons I have learnt to score at cricket, become familiar with the off-side rule and am very well acquainted with the institution of the ‘floor-drobe’!

 

I hope to bring educational experience, creative thinking and practical common sense to the governing body. It is crucial that the staff and governors communicate effectively for the benefit of all the children in the school. I view it as my role to facilitate this".
