Meet the Governing Body

Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School is blessed to have an experienced and dedicated Governing Body who work tirelessly to ensure that our children receive a high quality education in an environment that develops them spiritually, socially and academically. The Governors bring many educational, legal, financial and spiritual skills together so that we have a secure leadership structure overseeing the running of the school.

 

Our Governors play a very active part in the life of our school and they work closely with Mrs David and the rest of the staff to make sure…

  • that the schools vision and mission is clear
  • that all children are safe
  • that the school is being managed correctly
  • that the buildings and resources are fit for purpose
  • that the budget is being well spent
  • that the staff are held accountable for their performance
  • that the performance of the children is everything it can be

English Link Governor

My appointment as Foundation Governor at Our Lady of Lourdes School commenced in March 2017. I have been a parishioner of Our Lady of Lourdes for thirty-seven years and have served as a Eucharistic Minister in the parish for twenty years. I am a retired Head teacher of a Catholic primary school, therefore I feel I can use my experience of teaching and leadership in helping and supporting the school in continuing to move forward. I am delighted to have this opportunity to serve the school and parish in the role of a governor.

Finance and Resources Committee Member

EYFS Link Governor

This is my second term of office and I am in my eighth year as a governor at Our Lady of Lourdes School. I am on the Finance and Resources Committee and I am the EYFS link governor. I am married, am a mother and grandmother and I live in the parish. Having retired from teaching after many years in the school I have a well-established educational knowledge in all areas of teaching and learning. I visit the school as often as I can and enjoy meeting with the staff, children and parents and where needed, I am always willing to lend a hand.

I am enjoying my experience of school governance and working with others as part of a team, making sure that our children have access to an education of the highest standard. 

It is very pleasing to see what we have achieved so far and I look forward to continuing our hard work to ensure that every child will be given a great head start in life both academically and spiritually at Our Lady of Lourdes School.
