Debby Forsyth –  Chair of the Newton Abbot & Teign Local Governance Committee – Local Member  – Curriculum Lead 

Prior to having a family, I lived and worked in Asia for a number of years before returning to the UK to embark on a career in Education. I have taught across the primary age range, mainly in large schools in London and Surrey.

I have a particular interest in the provision for Special Educational Needs, Science and the Outdoor Learning Environment.

I moved to Devon, with my family, in 2011 and feel privileged to live and work in such a beautiful and peaceful area of the country.

I became a school governor, now Local Governance Committee member, as I wanted to support our schools in ensuring that the best possible provision and learning experiences continue to be available to all children.
