Janice is a co-opted and our SEND Link governor. She has had a career in local authority with responsibility for special educational needs provision.
“Hello, my name is Janice McKinley. I became a governor at Coop Academy Beckfield in February this year. I am on the Teaching and Learning Sub Committee with a link role of SEND. My career has focused on Disability awareness, SEN and I am passionate about inclusion.
I have 2 married daughters and cared for my brain injured husband for many years.
I enjoy travelling, walking and reading. This summer I travelled to the central desert in Australia and walked around Uluru!
I have worked in SEN and early years education for Bradford Council as a Portage home visitor, trainer, Area SENCO and as the Portage Coordinator for the last 12 years. I loved my job particularly seeing the progress children with additional needs can make when the environment and curriculum is differentiated to meet their needs. I retired in July feeling sad to leave my team but happy to start new adventures!
I am looking forward to working together with everyone at Co-op Academy Beckfield”
