My name is Sophie Preston and I am the school’s staff governor. I currently teach Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children in Class 1 and I am also the senior teacher in our school.
I am an experienced class teacher and previously I have also been a KS1 assessment moderator for other schools. My specialist subjects are mathematics, music and art.
I have worked for the local authority in their Architectural Design Office and further as a Building Surveyor looking after the maintenance and improvement of school buildings. I have valuable experience in project management, building defects diagnosis and building design.
Through my experience within the local authority, I have gained a multitude of contacts and had the pleasure of dealing with a variety of different people. After being a pupil at this school, I am thankful for this opportunity to use the skills I have gained and put back into the school to move it forward, 'to be the best it can be.'
My name is Susan Young and I am a Foundation Governor. I am a representative of St Helen’s Church and help to make sure the school continues to uphold its Christian ethos. I enjoy attending a full assembly each term. I am the Governor responsible for looked after children and a member of the Standards and Learning sub-committee. My aim for the school is to make sure it continues to improve and each child reaches their full potential regardless of any special needs they may have. My hobbies include reading, swimming, baking and watching Manchester City with my husband and two grown up children.
