Governor Profiles

Erini Cheliotis


I am currently the Chair of Governors and have been on the Governing Body for 14 years and I am the Link Governor for children who are eligible for Pupil Premium, Safeguarding and for Target setting across the school. I became involved with the school when my children attended the junior school, when Mr Milne was the head teacher. I work full time for the NHS and enjoy working with Mrs Corbett, the Governors and the whole team that make up Mosspits Lane Primary School.

Vicky Corbett


I joined Mosspits Lane Primary School in September 2022 as Headteacher.  This is my second headship within Liverpool, a city which has been my home for over four years.  I work within the city to improve outcomes for all children through my roles as member of the Liverpool Primary Headteachers' Association Steering Group, Liverpool Learning Partnership's Executive Board member, Headteacher Associate for the North West Three Maths Hub and Member of the Governance Group for Liverpool's Child Friendly City application. 


Prior to joining Mosspits Lane, I worked at Broad Square Primary School for 4 years.   A teacher for over 20 years, I began my career in my home town of Bolton, before moving to London in 2004 and working within Lambeth in a range of roles and schools until 2018.  I have had experience as Assistant Headteacher, Deputy Headteacher and Local Authority Advisor throughout this time.


Mosspits Lane is a wonderful community in which to work and the children make this an amazing place to be.   Mosspits Governing Body is made up of supportive, knowledgeable and committed members who have made me feel welcome, helped me to settle in and who have helped provide support, challenge and direction for the future of the school.


Ed Curry


My children have attended Mosspits Lane Primary School since 2008 and I have been a parent governor since 2014. I am a member of the Care, Culture and Ethos, Teaching, Learning and Standards, and Resources Committees; the committees provide comprehensive strategic and operational oversight of the school which enables me to fulfil my role as a governor. I have really enjoyed learning about how the school works and ensuring that the views of parents are represented on the governing body. I am also the link governor for Computing.

My background is in Outdoor Education and I have 20 years experience designing, delivering and managing educational programmes for young people in both mainstream and alternative educational settings. I have a wealth of experience working with young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities and in particular those who can exhibit challenging behaviour and/or are experiencing poor mental health.

I currently work for a national social integration charity that delivers a range of programmes to foster social integration within communities. My role involves ensuring that all the programmes we deliver are as inclusive as they can be and that, where possible, any young person that wants to participate is able to.

Brenna Dorrance


I have been a governor at Mosspits since 2018 when I first joined as a parent governor.  I transferred to co-opted governor in 2020.  I am originally from the USA though I have made Liverpool my home since 2006.


My interest in Mosspits is both personal and professional. I am a Director in an education charity where I lead leadership and development programmes for Primary and Secondary school leaders. I work with educators at all levels (classroom teachers through to Heads and Exec CEOs of Multi Academy Trusts) to transform the lives of children who need it most. We support educators to improve student outcomes through focussing on decreasing in school variation, improving the overall quality of teaching and learning and growing and developing staff.


I wanted my children to attend Mosspits because I was impressed with the school’s ethos and approach to learning. I take a special interest in the Teaching, Learning and Standards committee because I want to support the school to continue its drive for positive outcomes for pupils without losing all that makes Mosspits such a special and lovely place to be a learner.

Sue McGregor


I have been a Governor since 2012 when I was elected onto the Governing Body as a Parent Governor. My daughter attended the school before leaving for secondary school in 2014. Following her departure, I became a Community Governor. Following reconstitution of the Governing Body, I became a Co-opted Governor.

My professional background for many years was in Banking and Insurance. Many of my roles involved the implementation of company policies, procedures, training and internationally recognised quality standards. More recently I became a Childminder, a role that I am passionate about. I am a learning mentor for new Childminders and have served as Secretary of my local Childminding Network and was elected as Chair of the Liverpool Childminding Association by my peers.

I am the Link Governor for English and am extremely proud that Mosspits was awarded the Liverpool Reading Gold Quality Mark. I am also involved with the maintenance of the school website. 

Dave Owens


I have been a governor at Mosspits school for 7 years. I work as a Civil Servant. I am partially retired. I enjoy running and cycling. To date I have completed 11 marathons. I am link governor for Health & Safety. At work I am the union Health & Safety Secretary. I have almost completed an Occupational Health, Safety & the Environment Diploma course.  

Joyce Smith


I have been a school Governor for 29 years, 24 of these have been at Mosspits Lane as an Infant and Junior school and now as a Primary school. During this time it has been a privilege to serve the school as it has changed and grown. It has been an interesting and challenging journey but also exciting. As an Local Authority appeal panel member I feel that it helps during the transition from primary to senior school and I am available to talk to any parent that requests it. As Chair of the Care, Culture and Ethos committee I work with a variety of dedicated Governors who have a wealth of experience in all matters to do with the welfare, education and safeguarding of the children. I am also the Link Governor for EYFS, Inclusion and Transition.

 Janet Thomas


I have been a Governor at Mosspits Primary School for 6 years. I have been a teacher for 30 years and a headteacher for 10 years. I have worked in both the maintained and independent sector with children aged 3-11. I am passionate about providing the best opportunities possible for all pupils and ensuring they reach their full potential. I enjoy working with such a committed team of staff and Governors at Mosspits Primary School and helping to direct the work of the school. 

Anne Collinson


I have been a co-opted governor at Mosspits Lane Primary School since September 2018. I serve on the Teaching Learning Standards , Care Culture Ethos and the Resources committees and I am the Link governor for Mathematics.


I have been in education for thirty seven years and taught in both secondary and primary schools in Liverpool. In my last school I was on the Senior Leadership Team and I was also the staff governor for many years. 


I have since retired but I’ve always kept a keen interest in educational developments. I am delighted to be part of the Mosspits team and look forward to working with the Head teacher and her staff in maintaining the high standards of education throughout the school. 

Amy Newnham


I have been a parent governor at Mosspits Lane since November 2020. I have three children. My youngest enjoys school and is now in the juniors, my older children both attended Mosspits before secondary school and still speak fondly about their time there. Before my youngest was born I taught for many years at a local primary school in KS1. I enjoy kayaking and helping children and young people to learn to kayak and develop their skills.

I attend meetings for Care Culture and Ethos, Teaching Learning and Standards, and the Resources Committees. This has given me a good overall view of how the school works. I am one of the link governors for Safeguarding and meet with school staff and other governors regularly to support the Safeguarding team at school. 

For me, the caring, supportive ethos of Mosspits is so important as it forms the basis for every child to thrive at school. I love to see happy, engaged children enjoying their learning.

Hello, my name is Lyndsey Murphy and I am a parent Governor for Mosspits Primary School. I have twins in year 6 Charlotte and Ollie. I decided to put myself forward to become a parent governor as I wanted to bring any support and knowledge that may help make the school even greater! My background is childcare & Education. I have opened and ran Early Years provisions and most recently a SEN Independent Primary School in Liverpool. I am currently the Business Development Manager for Murphy’s Distillery which is a family run Distillery at the heart of the Liverpool Docks. I am proud to be a parent governor of Mosspits School, and feel that the school is a place for all children to learn, grow and achieve. I can say this, as this has happened with my own children.
