I am an Early Years Teacher who has taught for twenty three years and went on to work as a consultant and advisor on the British Curriculum in the Middle East. I specialised in establishing Early Learning Centres and Nurseries in the Middle East and India and was a Director for one Centre for five years.
After completing my Master in Education in 2005 I concentrated on inclusion and within the Learning Centres I set up Achievement Centres, for children with Special Educational Needs. I completed training as an Ofsted inspector in the UK in 2014 and have also qualified as a B.S.M.E.[British Schools in the Middle East] inspector.
I have worked in primary schools in North Manchester for over 25 years and in my current role I am the Deputy Headteacher at St Malachy’s primary school. Part of this role is to lead the early years.
As the EYFS lead at St Malachy’s I have worked with Collyhurst Nursery for some time to ensure the smooth transition of pupils into school and therefore was thrilled to be accepted as a governor.
I have a strong commitment to the community, children and families in Collyhurst and I am passionate about ensuring that the families and children in this area are provided with access to the highest quality of education and support.
I love to spend time with my family, especially my two grandchildren and enjoy cooking and travel.
I have been in education for 25 years and began my teaching career in Tameside. After being a deputy and year 6 teacher for 14 years I decided to progress into headship and took up post at Saviour CE Primary in Collyhurst in 2018. I became a governor at Collyhurst Nursery as I am passionate about children having an excellent start to their education and have seen the impact the
nursery has had when the children start Reception at Saviour. I would like, in my role as governor, to support the continued development of the nursery and the children in Collyhurst.
I enjoy the arts and reading and learning about local history.
I am Jadwiga, I have two amazing children who used to attend Collyhurst nursery school - Foundation room. I was appointed to be a Parent Governor whilst my second child was attending the school. Although my children have now progressed to primary school, I have a strong feeling towards the community of Collyhurst and surrounding area. I believe every parent's view should be heard and acknowledged.
