Governor Profile

Name: Jeanette Riley

Governor Role

Chair of Governors

Role/Job out of School

Civil Servant

Why do you like being a governor?

As a former pupil of the school and a former member of St. Michael’s Parish I have really enjoyed coming back to the school and supporting the great work it does. St Michael’s gave me a great start, supporting my educational achievements and work aspirations. The values it promotes are the values which have supported me through life. As a shy child the school made me feel protected and safe, it’s important to me to see that this focus on the wellbeing of children is integral to school values. It’s always refreshing and encouraging to note how the school are focused and committed to the development of the whole child, not just about the education.

What do you want for the school?

A school that creates the best start for children. Makes education interesting and fun. Is committed to our Christian values and supports the sharing of the catholic faith. A school that looks at each child as an individual and supports that individual development appropriately. A place where children feel valued, happy and safe.

What is your best own primary school memory?

It’s a mixture, listening to The Hobbit at story time, sitting in the library area with a book (you can see a theme here) and all of the art and craft classes, particularly around key events such as Christmas.

What are your hobbies?

I have an allotment, like hill walking, love going to the theatre and am a really big fan of all things craft related from drawing, dressmaking through to knitting.

 

Governor Profile

Governor Role

Foundation Governor

Role/Job out of School

Life Insurance Officer Worker

Why do you like being a governor?

I enjoy being involved in making decisions that can improve school life for the children.

What do you want for the school?

For the children to be happy and achieve great things.

What is your best own primary school memory?

Playing outside with all my friends & enjoying the outdoor equipment.

What are your hobbies?

Too busy for hobbies at the moment! I have a teenage daughter who needs to be taxied to many places.

 

Governor Profile

Name: Margaret Buckley

Governor Role

Foundation Gov. Responsibility for Safeguarding, Inclusion (Special Needs) and member of Teaching and Learning Committee.

Role/Job out of School

Retired headteacher. Associate RE Inspector. Member of the Governing Body of another local primary school and of a local senior school.

Why do you like being a governor?

I enjoyed my career as teacher/headteacher and, although retired, I still retain a lively interest in education. Being a Governor allows me draw on my previous experience. It also allows me to remain informed about current educational practices which I relish. I find Governorship both challenging and worthwhile and I feel privileged to be a Governor at St Michael's.

What do you want for the school?

That it should continue to provide a safe, inclusive, nurturing and happy environment in which both children and staff are challenged to achieve their best.

What is your best own primary school memory?

Skipping on the school yard ( champion skipper in school!!), being read to while sitting on the roots of a tree in summer. Magical. The May procession around the convent garden. I have a picture of my mother doing the same thing in the same place. It is one of many shared inter-generational experiences in my life.

What are your hobbies?

Reading, travel and cooking.

What are you currently reading?

Nana by Emile Zola.
