Catherine Stansfield - Co-Opted Governor (Support Staff)
I am currently in my eleventh year at Lightcliffe working as a Teaching Assistant in Year 3 and Year 4. I have worked closely with many children over the years and fine the role highly rewarding. As well as my various roles in the classroom, I also work as a school Librarian at lunchtime and also occasionally as a First Aider. Also, being quite artistic, I participate in Art and Enrichment lessons and am involved with many of the artistic displays around school. I have also recently qualified as a HLTA (Higher Level Teaching Assistant).
In the past I have been a member of the PFSA and I am now happy to be a member of the Governing Body as Support Staff Governor.
On a personal level, I have two children aged 20 and 16, both of whom attended Lightcliffe. I enjoy reading, theatre, travel and history.
