Governor Pen Portraits

Janet Quinn

I have been a foundation governor at St. Edwards for around twelve years and I am currently the Chair of Governors. My four children spent a happy and successful time at St. Edward’s before going onto St. David’s. I am a secondary school Science and Maths teacher working in Redcar.

I am very aware of the need for high quality teaching and learning for children as they start their educational journey. Having a good grounding in reading, writing and numeracy will without doubt equip them to meet their full potential. I feel very privileged to be a Governor at such a warm, friendly, successful school, and it feels wonderful to be able to give something back to the school that my children loved to go to.

Father Tom O’Neill

I am the Parish Priest here at The Holy Name of Mary Church and also Sacred Heart Parish. I pay regular visits to everyone at St Edwards RC Primary School.

John Griffin – Foundation Governor

I have been a Foundation Governor of St Edward’s for about fifteen years during which time I have been Chair of Governors and Chair of a number of committees. Both of my daughters attended the school and enjoyed their time there very much.

I have worked in Secondary and Further Education, in Middlesbrough, since 1973. I started off as a Maths teacher and ended up as a Senior Manager. I am now self- employed as an examiner which allows me time to pursue other interests such as, painting, cycling, my allotment and being a governor.

My responsibility as a governor is to monitor the management of the school in order to satisfy myself that its resources are used effectively in the pursuit of learning and achievement, for all pupils.

Paul Healy – Foundation Governor

I have 4 children (and a wife) who have all attended St. Edwards with my youngest daughter leaving Yr6 this year to go to Trinity. I have been a governor for 10 years and have found it to be a very rich and rewarding experience and would ask other parents to consider participating in the stewardship and governance of this truly amazing school when the opportunity arises. The school goes from strength to strength and is clearly an exemplar in primary school education in the country.

I work for Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council where my focus is young people’s employment

focussing on Apprenticeships,Graduates/Internships which requires me to participate with Universities, Colleges, Schools, Employers and most importantly young people. I have both teaching and management qualifications and I am a regional ambassador for the National Apprenticeship Service. I have recruited in excess of 350 young people in the last 5 years. I live in Linthorpe and I am a parishioner of the Holy Name of Mary.

Cheryl Walker – Parent Governor

This is my first role as a parent governor and I hope to offer a parents’ point of view, along with experience, and enthusiasm to further support the school. I have two daughters who attend St Edward’s – in Year 1 and Year 4 and currently work as a Deputy Headteacher at a rural primary school. I have been teaching for over fifteen years both in Middlesbrough and Redcar and Cleveland and believe that every child deserves the very best in education. I am passionate about ensuring that all of our children get the best possible learning opportunities and experiences from their time at St Edward’s and fully support the caring, catholic ethos which makes St Edward’s RC School a special place to be.

I look forward to being part of a Governing Body that work closely with staff, parents and pupils to ensure each child reaches their full potential.
