CROSSHALL JUNIOR SCHOOL GOVERNOR PROFILE
NAME: Catherine Harty
TYPE: LA Governor
I have been a Governor of Crosshall Junior School for a number of years and am now the Local Authority governor.
I am chair of the admissions committee; literacy link governor, meeting regularly with the literacy co-ordinator and a member of the school improvement committee.
My passion is literacy, a subject which is vitally important for every child. Without being able to read and comprehend what they are reading, the way forward for children can be difficult.
In order to assist Crosshall Junior School, I help in school two afternoons per week and take Extension Reading Groups in years 4 and 5.
This is very rewarding, seeing children progress in their understanding of Literature, and thus their development in other subjects.
