Striving for excellence whilst caring for all


Governor Profiles





I was appointed by the PCC (Parochial Church Council) as a Foundation Governor in 1999. Taking the role of Chair early 2001.The school intake number at that time was only 17 children a year. A very ambitious building and development program to increase the accommodation for our local children was started by the Governing Board. We currently take 30 children a year into Reception, considering where we started from this is a fantastic success

My current 4yr term of office started on 1st August 2021 and ends 31st July 2025

After several terms of office and training schedules I bring to the role, continuity, good local knowledge, in depth understanding and experience of school business, building construction and finance management. I continue to lead by example.

During my Governorship at St Saviour I have worked with 3 Head teachers, an Acting Head twice, have been in full attendance during 3 OFSTED and SIAS inspections.

I attend all full Governing Board and subcommittee meetings, the governor services unit in Bolton holds regular Chair’s Briefing sessions which continues my development and updates me on statutory changes and current working practise.

Additions to my role include being one of three Governors who have the responsibility for the Performance Management appraisals for the Headteacher. I am also link Governor for RE and PSHE in school, this is now covering Mental Health and Wellbeing for all our children in school. 

My nominated Governor role is SEN (Special Educational Needs) and Child Protection. This role involves confidentiality as regular meetings are held with the schools SENCO, I will attend SEN meetings for children who have an EHCP (Educational Health Care Plan) subject to parental approval. My role is to ensure the school complies with the provision contained within the SEN Policy, and meets the need of the child.

During May 2015 the Governing Board secured full accreditation for Governor Mark. An independent external assessment was carried out, which is a quality assessment process that clearly identifies the impact of the Governing board on School Improvement and Outcomes for children. It is a national award that lasts for 3 yrs, this expired last year. The Governing Board applied for renewal, which is a now a more evidence based framework. On the 11th October 2018 after external evaluation, I am delighted to say we have been successful once again and have full accreditation for the award, until October 2021.

Striving for Excellence Whilst Caring for all is the schools mission statement and is at the heart of all meetings and decisions made by the Leadership of this school. Despite the continuing changes to the OFSTED and Governor Mark framework as well as the new broader Curriculum, we continue to develop as a Leadership team working towards ensuring St Saviour School remains Outstanding. 




I have been fortunate enough to be involved with this outstanding school for many years.  I was employed as a teacher here for 27 years and both my daughters and granddaughter were educated here.

I served as a Teacher Governor for several years until my retirement in 2012. In 2014 I was appointed as a Foundation Governor by the PCC, in April 2019 I was appointed the Diocesan Governor.

I am Chair of the Curriculum Committee, attend meetings of the Premises Committee and am the link governor for Mathematics.

I am happy and proud to still have a role at this school and the opportunity to continue my lifelong passion to enable every child the ability to achieve their full potential. 



In 2013 I began a year’s sabbatical from my role as Service Manager in a health & social care setting. I had services across Gtr. Manchester and Cheshire and worked with vulnerable adults and children. I was responsible for all front line and admin staff, together with over 2,000 service users. My responsibilities included a plethora of transferrable skills; governance, HR, finance, safeguarding to name but a few. In 2014 my Dad was diagnosed with terminal cancer. I went back to work to resign and cared for my Dad until his death in 2015.

I am married and am a mum of four children as well as being a Nan to seven grandchildren, two of whom attend St. Saviour. My retirement has allowed me lots of opportunities including becoming an Authorised Lay Minister within the Church of England and helping to run a local toddler group, Bumblebees.

I enjoy serving my community and have been given skills that link into my role of Governor. I am passionate about my faith. If anybody would like to know more please do not be afraid to approach me.


I have worked at St Saviour since February 2008, employed as a full time HLTA. I work predominantly in Y6, but also provide PPA cover weekly across KS2. My children are 25 and 23, and my husband and I also foster 15 year old twin boys, which can be challenging but is rewarding. We also adopted the younger brother of the twins when he was 3, who is now 6, and he attends St Saviour, as the obvious choice for a warm, family atmosphere where learning and nurturing go hand in hand.

St Saviour is a wonderful place to work and I am very proud and privileged to be a member of a dedicated board of governors, who continually look to move our school forward for the best interests of the children. I firmly believe in our school mission statement, as the children, parents, governors and staff truly do, “strive for excellence whilst caring for all.”


I was first appointed Staff Governor in 2015 and currently serve on the Curriculum Committee. I have a long and happy association with Saint Saviour as I attended this amazing school as a child and I firmly believe the values I learnt here stood me in good stead throughout my subsequent career. My daughter also attended this school and was given a wealth of opportunities to enable her to flourish. I worked as a Teaching Assistant at St. Saviour before pursuing a teaching career. I have worked at St. Teresa’s and Masefield before returning to take up a teaching post at St. Saviour. I am extremely proud to still be involved with the school and that I have the opportunity to be a part of a school which has such a special ethos. It’s a privilege to be a part of such a special place.


I was appointed as Parent Governor for St Saviours in 2019.  I wanted to join the governing board to have a voice within the school my children attend, and to give something back to the community I reside in. 

I have a strong connection with the school as I attended St Saviours myself, alongside my sister and cousins, I was brought up just a few doors away and my mother and her siblings also attended St Saviours. 

I have over 12 years of project management experience within a creative industry, including budget management, event planning and HR responsibilities. I'm hoping to have the opportunity to apply my skills to support the school in its development.

I am part of the premises committee.  I am also the link governor with the subject of Science.  St Saviours school is a family with the children's education and wellbeing at heart.  The ethos of the school is one that is important to me also, and I am proud to have a place on the governing board.


I was asked to join the St. Saviour Governing Body in June, 2019.  I have held a number of leadership roles in primary education for over ten years and have particular interests in Safeguarding, Special Educational Needs and English.  Both my children have thrived at St. Saviour and I am delighted to support this wonderful school community.


My love for St Saviour School began in 2000 when my eldest daughter joined the school, and all 3 of my children flourished during their time here.  I joined the staff team in 2011 and I am very proud to work with such a dedicated team of teachers and support staff, who help to make this such a wonderful, nurturing environment.  My role as governor completes my continued commitment to the school, its ethos and especially its children and their families.
