Tanya Clarke

Vice Chair Governor

Joe Henley

Co-opted Governor

I have been teaching at Moss Bury for 7 years now and, in 2015, took the decision to become a staff governor in order to be part of the team that helps make the school the best it can possibly be. In my view, Moss Bury has such a wonderful community of children, staff and parents of which we should all be extremely proud.

Day-to-day, I currently split my commitments between leading Teaching and Learning as a Deputy Head and teaching year 6 and, while it may be turning a few of my hairs grey, I really enjoy working with our children.

Fundamentally, I became a governor so that I could help improve links between the governing body and our amazing staff, all with the overall aim of improving the experience that children have at Moss Bury

Su Johnston

Co-opted Governor

From the early stages of my career with the NHS I have always been a strong advocate of the importance of good education. As a Speech and Language Therapist I worked closely with colleagues in a number of schools supporting children and young people to access education regardless of their ability. This then led me to focus on the wider children's community health services and I have recently retired from a management role for these services in Hertfordshire. Within the NHS I have experience of the many different aspects and challenges of delivering services which reflect the needs of those who use them and I am looking forward to using some of these skills to support Moss Bury School. 

As a new Governor I have been spending time getting to know how Moss Bury works as well as building my knowledge through dedicated governor training. I am the link governor for Health and Safety and will be working closely with the senior leadership team to ensure that we deliver the priorities in this important area

Emma Skinner

Staff Governor

This is my second year teaching at Moss Bury and I really enjoy being a part of the amazing community that we have in and around our school.  I am currently teaching in Year 2 and love being part of a team that puts the children first.  

I decided to be a staff governor here as I wanted to understand more about the processes that drive our lovely school forward and be part of the team that will help us to be the best we can be.  

Being a governor means that I can be a voice for the staff at the meetings, sharing their views and ensuring that we are providing the best possible care and education for our wonderful children. 

Michael McDonagh 

Parent Governor

Sarah Duckworth

Parent Governor

Sarah is a parent governor of two children that attend Moss Bury Primary school.

As a qualified primary school teacher with twelve years teaching experience, she aims to utilise her knowledge and experience to support Moss Bury Primary school and to help ensure every child receives the education they deserve.

Cathy Holgate

Associate Governor

I am an associate governor, with 26 years teaching experience at Moss Bury from Nursery to Year 6. In the latter years, I retrained as Teacher of the Deaf and ran the Hearing Impaired Unit.

I retired a few years ago to pursue my interests in music, photography and travelling.  I am back now to Moss Bury - and wish to serve the whole school community as a Governor and provide an excellent future for our children.
