Helen Perry

I joined the School’s Governing Body in September 2015. My three children, Sebastian, James and Alexandra Murphy, currently attend the School.

As well as being a mum, in my professional life I am a Solicitor working for Leeds City Council’s in house legal team as a Principal Legal Officer. It is a really interesting and varied job. My area of specialism is employment law and since I started at the Council in 2005 I have advised managers and HR officers on all manner of employee-related issues. This has included advising Leeds School Headteachers on the handling of staffing issues, such as re-structures and staff reductions, disciplinaries, grievances, sickness absence as well as Employment Tribunal claims.

I look forward to working with the other members of the School Governing Body.
