I have been involved with Horley Infant School since 1996 when my elder daughter, Hannah, started school in Bumblebee class.
Over the following years I assisted in the classroom as a parent helper and supported the school through activities organised by the Friends. When my younger daughter, Lucy, started school in 1999, I was fortunate to be offered a part-time position as a Special Needs Assistant working with a child in year one.
The following year I became a full time Teaching Assistant. I continued in this role, working in years one and two, until September 2008 when I was appointed the Home School Link Worker. This was a new role within Horley Infant School and one that has grown and developed over the ensuing years. I was elected as Support Staff Governor in 2006.
