MEET OUR GOVERNORS

Fr Robert - Chair of Governors

"I graduated with a degree in Computer Science before beginning my theological studies. I have served in parishes in Liverpool and Haydock, and have been Rector of Hemsworth since 2006.  I am currently the Chair of Governors at St Helen's CE Primary school. I have served on four different governing bodies since 1999."

“I joined St Helen's in 2009 as a Special Needs Assistant, and became  a member  of the governing body in 2012.

I have three children who have all been pupils at St Helen's.  I became a volunteer at the school when my daughter was in Year 2. I am very lucky to have many different roles within the school. As well as being a class teaching assistant I also teach swimming on Wednesday afternoons.  I help to run the school’s Breakfast Club and I am Senior Lunchtime Supervisor. I believe that all these roles give me a real insight to the school and the needs of the children.”

"After having attended St Helen's myself, as a child, I realise what an honour and privilege it now is to be a governor. Not a position to be taken lightly but a commitment towards staff, pupils and parents. As a governor I think it is important that attention should be focused on Teaching, Leadership, results and behaviour.
As Health and Safety governor I feel it necessary also to promote the Health, Safety and welfare of the school."

 Dr Ben Johnson

 My two children are pupils at St Helen’s and I have been on the governing body as a foundation governor since 2010.  Since then, I have enjoyed serving as a governor at the school and most recently have taken on the roles of Training Link Governor and Chair of the Resources Committee.  I studied at the University of Leeds, where I gained my PhD in Physics in 2005.  Since then I have worked as a Research Scientist and most recently a Scientific Officer. My current research involves using VERY small gas bubbles to try and treat and cure cancer.

I hope that my experiences in education and most notably Science, can help the school to develop in these areas.  It is also a chance to help the next generation to understand the enjoyment that knowledge can bring.

"I am one of two Parent Governors here at St Helen’s CE Primary School and I have been a Parent Governor for 4 years.  I have two children who attend St. Helen’s.

I became a Parent Governor initially to have a better understanding of how the School operates on a daily basis.  However given the length of time I have been a Parent Governor I am now more interested in ensuring that all the children in School (whether they be in Foundation or Year 6) receive the best education they can in their most formative years of learning.

Sam Corcoran

“I’ve been a parent governor for several years now. I became interested in how the School runs when my eldest daughter became a pupil at St Helens, so I went for the post of Parent Governor when one became available. Being a governor gives you opportunities to go on training courses to help you support the school, staff and children.”
