I have lived in Cross Gates for the last 12 years and have two children at Cross Gates Primary. My eldest is in year 5 and I have been involved with the school ever since she started in reception, first as a member of the PTA (FOX) and then as a school governor. My youngest is in year 2 so I anticipate being involved with the school for many years to come. I work full time as a Safeguarding and Risk Manager for Leeds City Council. Just like other parents, I want the best for my children and am passionate about them receiving a good education. I am keen for all children at Cross Gates Primary to have the best possible experience of school and will support the headteacher and school staff to continue to work hard to ensure this happens.
