Mrs E Sloan

My name is Emma Sloan and I am a Parent Governor, I have 3 beautiful children, two of which attend Arlecdon School. I work as a Commercial Manager within the Nuclear Industry working on multi million pound contracts with over 25 years’ experience in this field. My skills easily transfer to an education setting to ensure our children get the best opportunities and can excel.

In my spare time I am lucky enough to share the same interests as my family and enjoy, listening to music and attending gigs and festivals, snowboarding and fell walking.

Ms F Weightman

I am Fiona Weightman, I am a Governor for Arlecdon and Thornhill schools and for my day job I work in the Central Reporting Team in the NDA. I have previous experience of working as an Adult Education Teacher and as a Paralegal. I have a 20 year old son.

Mr D Sharp

I value the opportunity to play a role in helping Arlecdon and Thornhill primary schools to provide a great education for the children attending both schools. I was inspired to become a Governor because as a parent of three children at Thornhill, I was impressed by all the hard work which goes into providing the supportive, nurturing environment that is offered to all children. I have training in emotional support in schools and I believe passionately that children can only learn if they are supported both emotionally and socially.
I bring knowledge of education and SEND with me through working in both primary and secondary schools.
