BSc (Hons), PGCE
Judy taught Biology and PSHE in Secondary schools in Swindon and Bath for 15 years. She was school lead for drugs and sex and relationship education, enabling the school to achieve ‘Schools for Health’ status in Bath and North East Somerset.
Judy was one of the first cohort of teachers to achieve the PSHE CPD qualification and delivered training to over 200 participants over 12 years in B&NES and became the local programme coordinator of the National Healthy Schools Programme in 2007 (later to become the B&NES Director of Public Health Award) in the School Improvement and Achievement Service where she remained until 2018. Always keen to develop her knowledge, she completed her UK Public Health Practitioner registration in 2014.
Judy sees the development of teachers to deliver high-quality PSHE as fundamental to supporting the health, well-being and life chances of children and young people and is delighted to be supporting schools to implement Jigsaw. She is particularly enthusiastic about the way in which Jigsaw incorporates support for emotional health and well-being and is looking forward to working with schools as they begin their Jigsaw journey.
Having recently left B&NES, Judy moved to Cornwall with her husband and dog to enjoy the beaches and countryside on a daily basis. She is a passionate supporter of Bath Rugby, though, and will be making the journey back up to watch all home matches throughout the season!
