Dawn Younge had a career in teaching for over 25 years with particular expertise in early years education. Before moving to Yorkshire she was Deputy Head teacher of an infant school in Warrington. She has worked locally in a number of schools with various needs and challenges. A common thread throughout her teaching career and governance work has been her involvement and commitment to faith schools.
She was appointed as a Foundation Governor at Saxton CE Primary School in 2011 and served as Chair of Governors from 2016 until her resignation from the LGB in July 2019. During this period she was instrumental in the school’s improvement and transition to an academy within the STAR MAT.
