Governor Profiles

Karen Richardson

I was elected Staff Representative in 2013, I have worked at Heaton Manor School for 12 years in a variety of roles including Learning Mentor, Progress Coach and Year Manager.

I am a member of Heaton Baptist Church, which is one of the school's community partners. I have a degree in Environmental Studies and I assist with running the Eco-Warrior Period 7 Group. I am interested in helping to make Heaton Manor School sustainable and eco-friendly.

Whilst working at Heaton Manor School I have seen how partnerships with outside organisations can enhance student achievement and broaden aspirations, and I hope to encourage the school to link with the local community and for our neighbours to have a positive relationship with school.
