Tricia Spedding

I have been a governor at the school for 17 years having originally joined as a parent governor when my four children were at the school. At the time I felt it was important not only to be an active member of the school community (I was also a member of the PTA) but also to gain an understanding of how a school ran in order to be able to support both the school and my children’s education.

Previously I had trained as a teacher and have taught in primary schools. I also have management experience in the NHS and in Catering. I was a full time parent while my children were at Primary school and also cared for my elderly parents.

I am proud to say that my children have all gone on to further education and I feel this is as a result of an excellent foundation in primary education. I am passionate about being part of a team that continues to aim and achieve to provide a broad excellent education for all the children that attend Balgowan school.
