Mrs Lucy Bouweraerts
I have been a governor for three years at Bowerham Primary and Nursery School. Starting my career as a teaching assistant in the West Midlands, I moved to Lancashire as an NQT in 2003 and have since worked at various schools across Lancashire, teaching across all year groups. I have had many extra roles during this time, such as: DT, Art, PE and Maths Co-ordinator; NQT, HLTA, Trainee Teacher (University and Work Based) mentor; creativity lead and external assessor for University of Cumbria. In addition, I have been a SENDCO for fifteen years and have assisted in the management of a SERF unit, completed my SEN Award and provided external support for other SENCOs and schools.
At Bowerham, I was appointed as Deputy Head teacher in 2016, at which time I became an elected staff governor. I really enjoy the role of Deputy and Staff Governor and the experiences I have had across various educational settings and in various roles have enabled me to develop, present and challenge school improvement and procedures, alongside the governing team.
I have also been a parent at Bowerham since 2014 and feel very privileged that my own children have attended a school such as this and with a governing body such as ours. The varied experience and skill set of our governors and commitment to Bowerham ensures the smooth running and development of our school. We are lucky to have governors that know our school and care greatly about it- now and in the future.
