I am currently the Chair of Governors and have been on the Governing Body for 13 years and I am the Link Governor for children who are eligible for Pupil Premium 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 Miss Everitt, the Governors and the whole team that make up Mosspits Lane Primary School.
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.
I am a parent governor and mom of a current year 1 pupil. I am originally from the USA though I have made Liverpool my home for the past 12 years.
My interest in Mosspits is both personal and professional. I am a Director with an education charity where I lead national Middle Leadership programmes for Primary and Secondary school leaders. We 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
