Mrs Ann Whittington

I am a busy mum of six and two of my children go to Sheldon site of Brays School.  As a parent of two children with complex medical needs I feel I understand the needs of both the children and their parents across the two schools in the federation. I am passionate about supporting the schools and helping the children to get the best education.  I love watching the progress of our children and know how amazing they all are.

Professionally I have been a foster carer for ten years and I also volunteer with the charity Scope and engage in working groups at both Birmingham Childrens Hospital and Heartlands Hospital. I enjoy training and regularly update myself on safeguarding, first aid, and attachment and traumatised children.
