Heather Goddard

I’m married with three girls and live in Filton Park, Bristol.


I trained as an Early years teacher and took a break to bring up my children. During this time I have worked as a childminder and with children in voluntary roles.


For me being part of the parent panel has involved attending and contributing to meetings, providing a parent’s point of view. It has also involved commenting on literature and information that is intended for parents to make it more accessible.  Being part of the parent panel has enabled me to use my own experiences as a parent in a positive way.  It has been interesting to be involved in a research project in a small but important way.
