  • Mrs Rachel Gould

    Staff Governor

    I am Rachel Gould and I have been teaching since 2004. In 2014 I became the staff governor and so far, I have enjoyed the role. I came to work at Blakehill Primary School in 2012 and after seeing the fantastic work which happens here, I chose to send my son to this school. I am an enthusiastic teacher and want to help children to reach their full potential. I am also keen on helping children with special educational needs and earlier this year I passed my SENCO award at Leeds Beckett University.
    Since being at Blakehill, I have taught in all year groups and thoroughly enjoy the team effort with all of the staff.
