Jaki Garside

I am staff governor at Easington Academy and was elected by colleagues almost 10 years ago. I have supported the school during the conversion to academy status and more recently the transfer to the North East Learning Trust.

My background is in youth work and I have been a Home School Liaison Officer at Easington for 12 years.
I have a son who attends a local secondary school and have recently welcomed Obie, a gorgeous cava poo into our family. 

I am an active person and am known for my love of extreme sports especially during Activities Week at school.
As a Governor, I believe it is important to support and challenge the Senior Leadership Team to ensure that all students achieve their full potential. I am the Governor with responsibility for safeguarding and have completed Child Protection Training, Level 3 this is closely aligned to my role within school.

I am a member of the Finance, Premises and Grounds Committee and actively participate in the discussions that form part of the strategic decision-making process and I look forward to continuing to support the Academy in the future.
