Anya Stephenson

I am a life-long resident of Ferryhill and both my daughter and son attend Cleves Cross Primary. Myself and my husband attended the school ourselves and we loved our time there. It was only natural once we had children that we would want them to attend Cleves Cross so they too could experience all of the opportunities that we had. The school has always strived for the best of their pupils so we felt extremely happy when our children obtained places. Our son was also lucky enough to attend the school nursery when it first opened. Professionally I am a Tax Advisor with over 20 years of experience and I thoroughly enjoy what I do. This is my third year as a Governor at the school and it has been great to give back, helping our local school. I chose to become a governor because I am very passionate about helping children become the best versions of themselves and I believe that starts in the school environment. I also have a strong passion with SEND due to personal experiences so as the SEND Link Governor it is really special to be able to help the school strive to provide every child access to a broad and balanced education.
