Who are the governors?

 

 

 

Mrs Karen Fairhurst : 

I am a newly elected parent governor (May 2015) on the board at Rushcroft, I have two children, one of which is at Rushcroft and the other will be joining the school when she turns school age. I was keen to become a member of the governing board to bring the thoughts and needs of the children from a parents perspective. My working background is in corporate IT and I hope this enables me to bring some further skills to the governing board and in turn the school.

 

Mrs Tracy Taylor:

Hi my name is Tracy Taylor, I'm 41 years old and have been working at Rushcroft for 10 years now.  The first 6 as a Teaching Assistant and the last 4 as a Learning Mentor.  I have 3 children 17, 13 and 9, all boys - so along with my professional experience I also have experience of the varying ages, stages, joys and challenges of parenthood.

As a Governor I will strive to maintain the schools ethos and values whilst helping us to move forward to face new challenges and  achieve new goals.

 

Mrs Alison Morris

After looking all over Oldham for my son’s school, I can proudly say that Rushcroft is the best.  I am a strong believer in the Primary Years of a child’s life, being the building blocks to the rest of their life.  I have a son with additional needs and a background teaching Drama at FE level.  I now work in Higher Education, but in the past, volunteered for a Childrens Literacy Charity, so have some knowledge of education.  I have much more knowledge about being a parent and would like to contribute my experiences to what is already a successful school. 

 

Mr David Reeve

As a parent with a child in year two, I have a vested interest in the running of the school, and as a professional person I consider myself a candidate for a parent governor.  I have a wealth of knowledge and breadth and depth of experience in facilities management, being a qualified building surveyor, currently working for a social landlord housing association for the past 14yrs, dealing with repairs, refurbishment and management of various estates, prior to that I worked at Oldham Council in the technical department looking after education and social services buildings. I can therefore bring this knowledge and ideas to the governing body.
