Our Governors

  The Governing Body of Sherdley Primary School

Kirsty Farrelly -

Chairperson

As a mum of four young children I am passionate about helping to ensure our school provides the best environment to allow all children to fulfil their potential within a supportive and nurturing setting. 

Professionally I am a Chartered Accountant and enjoy running my own business. This affords me the flexibility to work around our busy family life but essentially provides the opportunity to become fully involved in school life. 

I am delighted to take on the role of Chair of Governors and enjoy the responsibility of co-ordinating the hard work undertaken by all members of the Governing Body. I look forward to continuing to work with all members of the Sherdley community to help to provide the best whole school experience for the pupils of Sherdley.

Simon Dawson -  

Vice Chair

Having worked for almost two decades in Further Education, I am passionate about the power of education to enhance our lives and local communities. I am an experienced Project Manager and MIS Manager of an Ofsted Grade 2 private training provider in the Liverpool City Region. I also lead on the Equality & Diversity Committee within my organisation.

My son previously attended Sherdley Primary School and I am aware of the importance of primary education in enabling children to make a successful move into high school and continued lifelong education.

I am a fan of the Saints (where I see some success) and QPR (where I don't !).

Rebecca Bridge -

Community Governor

I am a Community Governor and LSA, and I have two children at Sherdley Primary School. 

I am dedicated to our wonderful school and I am proud of being part of a team that wants the very best for the children of Sherdley.

Cllr Jimmy Jackson -

Authority Governor

I am committed to the role of Governor at Sherdley Primary School and the Community of Sutton.  Ward Councillor for Sutton and serve on many Committees such as Planning, Health and Adult Social Care, Environment, Regeneration, Housiing, Culture and Leisure Overview and Scrutiny Panel and believe in Safer Communities. 

Cllr Anthony Johnson -

Authority Governor

Bold Councilor for St Helens MBC, Cabinet Member for Corporate Services.  Lives locally in Sutton and former pupil of the school. 

Development Manager at Alder Hey Childrens NHS Trust working on the development of the new Alder Hey Hospital.

Hazel Morley -

Authority Governor

I have been a Local Authority Governor since October 2009, I am married with two grown up children.

I am a member of the Resources Committee and represent Sherdley on the Schools Governors Forum.

Mrs Alison McQueen -

Parent Governor

I am a mum of two young children who both enjoy attending Sherdley. I believe children need the best possible start in life and I am proud to be part of a team of Governors who are all passionately willing to deliver that start. I am a parent volunteer working with babies to preschoolers at Sherdley helping to build their confidence before they begin their own education.

Mrs Briars

Parent Governor

As a parent governor, I am keen to ensure that the voice, aspirations and priorities of the parents of Sherdley pupils are a key part of school decision making at the most strategic level. My background as a teacher, and subsequent career supporting and writing about parental mental health are probably why I was elected to the role - but far more useful are the experiences I live every day raising two inquisitive, exhausting and terrifyingly unpredictable children!

Kevin Harker -

Co-opted Governor

 

Carol Brown -

Co-opted Governor

 

 

Karen Tilley -

Staff Governor

As an ex-student whose two children also attended Sherdley, I am passionate about seeing it continue developing into an outstanding school.  

As a Governor and staff member I want to make sure Sherdley continues to give its students a great foundation so they can be the best they can be.

Tony McCoy -

Headteacher

I am an experienced Headteacher who always puts children first and am proud to be leading Sherdley. I am passionate about making a difference and preparing children for the future. In our school we aim to fully support children to become well-rounded individuals, ready to take up new challenges.

My four children are all grown up and my wife and I are now enjoying our 6 grandchildren! I love playing golf, cycling and following the 'exploits' of Everton Football Club.
