 have been a Governor at Waterloo Primary School for the past 16 years and Chair of Governors for the last six years. I became a Governor when my daughters first started school and have found the work I do on behalf of the school is very interesting and fulfilling. I am a full time working mum with two daughters, my hobbies are singing, swimming, reading, and going to the cinema. I have a strong belief in fairness and justice, and see education as the first step to help children discover and obtain an exciting life for themselves and create a better world for the future.

Hello my name is Mel Burton. I am now a Co opted Governor having originally been a Parent Governor whilst my daughter spent seven happy years at Waterloo Primary School. I am Deputy Head of Resonate, Liverpool's Music Education Hub. My work takes me into hundreds of schools across Merseyside and beyond and I think it gives me an objective view of education. As a governor I see my role as being a critical friend to the school - ready to challenge preconceived ideas and support our leadership team in their aim to constantly improve the opportunities available to our children. As a busy mum I used to take advantage of many of the extended services provided by the school and see these aspects of school as being just as important as the curriculum. I want our school to be pivotal in supporting our children to become productive, positive happy individuals.

 

Mrs Helen Louise Shaw - Parent Governor

Link Governor for Health and Safety

Behaviour Safety and Wellbeing meetings attended 

Full Governors meetings attended 

I have a  child at Waterloo Primary and I am also a Teaching Assistant in the school. I became a  Governor in Autumn 2015 as this seemed like the next natural step to take. Having previously been in marketing I took the choice to stay at home with my children for a while and after a short period of home schooling I sent my daughter to Waterloo Primary where she is flourishing!  I am a member of the Behaviour, Safety and Wellbeing Committee and I really hope in my new role to be able to make a difference to the school and the experiences of the children there. 

 

Mrs Emma Anne Graham - Parent Governor

Link Governor for Pupil Voice

Responsibilities:

Pupil Progress meetings attended 

Full Governors meetings attended 

I volunteered to become a Parent Governor following the last OFSTED report as I wanted to be able to contribute and play an active part in the development of the school. I am on the Pupil Progress Committee which helps ensure that every child is given the opportunity to achieve their maximum potential. As the designated Pupil Voice Governor, I also see my role as a critical eye- supporting Management but also providing a voice and perspective from the parents and children. Both my children are in the infants at Waterloo Primary and I pick them up most days so please feel free to come and and have a chat.

 

Mrs Angharad Jenn - Parent Governor

Responsibilities:

Teaching Learning and Assessment meetings attended 

Full Governors meetings attended 

I recently became a Parent Governor in Autumn 2015. I decided to become a Governor following the recent OFSTED visit as I felt this was not a true reflection of the school. I want to be able to contribute in any way possible to help the Headteacher and her team achieve their aims.  I have two children at the school in Y2 and Reception. 

 

Mrs Sarah Michelle  Robinson - Co Opted Governor

Link Governor for SEND

Responsibilities:

Leadership and Management meetings attended

Teaching Learning and Assessment 

Full Governors meetings attended 

I have been on the Governing body for nearly three years. I was a former pupil at the school and have very fond memories of growing up here – some of the teachers who taught me are still here today, which is lovely!

I wanted to become a Governor as I felt that I had a great education at this school and wanted to give something back to the pupils and staff to help other children develop in their own way. I have a little boy of my own, Sam, who has just turned 1 and I am learning a lot about the education he will receive as he gets older and it’s nice to have a part to play in the education he will receive.

Iam a member of the Leadership and Management Committee, which ties in nicely with my job at Santander. I also sit on the Teaching,Learning and Assessment Committee and recently, I was appointed as the Governor for Special Educational Needs and am working closely with Ruth Jones to assist in any way that I can.

 

Mrs Claire Gaudie - Co Opted Governor

Link Governor for Attendance

Behaviour Safety and Wellbeing meetings attended 

Full Governors meetings attended 

I became a Parent Governor when my children Sophie and Jackson attended the school. They are now grown up but I have continued on the Governing Body as a Co-opted Governor as I feel such a strong connection with Waterloo Primary School and feel that it plays such a strong role in the community. The children never cease to impress me as they always seem so happy and enthusiastic in their learning.

 

Miss Trudi Louise Hirsch - Co Opted Governor

Link Governor for Pupil Premium

Full Governnors meetings attended 

I have worked as a Finance Officer with the National Health Service for nearly twenty years, initially at Sefton Health Authority based just down the road at Burlington House, and currently at NHS England in Liverpool. I joined the Governing Body six years ago because I wanted to give something back to the area where I had worked. I am a Community Governor on the Leadership and Management Committee as well as a member of the Staff Discipline and Appeals Committees. In my spare time I love the Theatre and am very proud to be the 2015-16 Chair of the Southport Dramatic Club. I am also a Rotarian with the Ormskirk Clocktower Rotary Club.
