Mrs Oakford has been a Governor since September 2014 and is a member of several committees which include:

• Pay

• Curriculum & Standards

• Resources & Personnel

She is the Chair of the Curriculum & Resources Committee.


She endeavours to attend as many governor training courses as possible to improve her knowledge & understanding of her role and the impact it has within the running of the school. She always attends school meetings and does her best to contribute in a positive manner, helping in making decisions for the good of the school, and of course the pupils.


Mrs Oakford is a working parent and has worked for the UK Civil Service for the last 25 years. She currently works within a finance role and feels confident that her contribution at committee meetings is of value.


Mrs Oakford has lived in Kirkby all of her life. She is married and has two children who are at Northwood. She takes her role very seriously, and freely dedicates her spare time. She thoroughly enjoys being part of the governing body at Northwood!
