Claire Carter

Parent Governor (Chair) / 25.01.21 / None / No / None

I am a parent of twins at St Anne's and am delighted that I have been given the opportunity to chair such a devoted governing body.  I believe in the ethos of the school very much and hope to continue to support the teachers and staff and be part of an ever changing environment to improve our children's lives and education.

I am presently devoting my time to family and school life. However, I have worked in numerous business and management roles, both in the North West and London, mainly in the areas of business training, business development and marketing and national account manager roles. I have worked in industries ranging from copyright, finance and security to travel. As well as a Business Master’s degree I also have a music degree and have taught piano privately. As a family we are members of St Teresa’s Church in Wilmslow and enjoy an active life in the community. I am also the publicist for St Anne’s Fulshaw PTA … every little helps!

 

Danny Baker

Parent Governor (Vice Chair) / 29.04.20 / None / No / None

I joined as a Parent Governor in May 2012 and enjoy the opportunity to work with the teachers and parents to help the school continue to provide the best possible education and environment for all our children, so they blossom and achieve their full potential. As a relatively new parent to the school I hope to be able to bring a fresh perspective to the Governing body as we support the Head. I work as a Regeneration Manager for a Housing Association and am married to Kay. I have a daughter in Year 5 and a son who started at St Anne’s in 2013, so we’ll be involved with the school for some years to come! As a family we are actively involved in a local church, and in my spare time I enjoy watching and playing sports.

Nicky Cathery

Co-opted Governor / 20.05.20 / None / No / None

I am a parent of two children who loved their time at St Anne's Fulshaw and are now at Wilmslow High School.  I am a member of St Anne's Church and run a church group for older children/young adults. I am also a teacher of Religious Studies and Philosophy at a 6th form college in Manchester. I have been impressed by the outstanding pastoral care shown to the children at the school and its creative and challenging curriculum. Outside of work I enjoy walking with my two dogs and visiting museums and theatres.

 

Katie Davis

Co-opted Governor / 21.10.18 / None / No / None

My children joined St Anne's Fulshaw in January 2012 and both have now moved on to Wilmslow High School. I was very involved with the PTA at my children's previous school in London and have enjoyed helping the PTA at St Anne's. I worked for 10 years as a team leader at the Care Quality Commission mainly analysing healthcare data for clinical governance reviews. Before that I had several analytical roles in healthcare and the energy sector in the UK, US and Eastern Europe. In my spare time I enjoy exploring local sites with my family, sewing and jewellery making.

 

Anne Baker

Foundation Governor / 18.04.20 / None / No / None

I am the mother of four grown-up children and a member of St. Bart’s church. I was also Head of English in an Ursuline convent school in London before we moved to Wilmslow.

The positive Christian ethos of St Anne’s is one of its strongest characteristics, and I am proud to be able to support the efforts of all the staff in promoting the education and welfare of the children.

In my leisure time I enjoy spending time with my husband, children and energetic Labrador. I am also a keen fell- and long-distance walker. I sing regularly with the Barnaby choir in Wilmslow.

 

Natalie Lloyd

Co-opted Governor / 21.10.18 / No / No / None

I moved to Wilmslow several years ago and my eldest child began school at St Anne’s Fulshaw in 2011. I used to work as a Deputy Headteacher before I had children, so I feel very privileged to be able to play a part in the development of the school. I have also become involved in the PTA which I am finding really enjoyable. I love spending time with my husband and three children.

 

Jonathan Vose

Co-opted Governor / 11.10.20 / None / No / None

My principal involvement in school life to date, alongside charity bike riding and pond clearing, has been to voluntarily assist the delivery of the new Resource Room through managing the planning process in line with my profession as a Planning Consultant.

 My son started in Reception in 2014, hence I am still relatively new to school life. However, in that time, I have greatly enjoyed learning about school life, the school’s clear identity and ethos and how easy I have found it to feel part of the wider school community.

I was very pleased to take on the role of Associate Governor, principally to assist matters relating to school build and resourcing matters, and look forward to assisting the running of the school in any way I can as a newly Co-opted Governor.

 

Clare Daniel

Staff Governor / N/A / Headteacher at the school / No / None

I am the Headteacher at St Anne’s Fulshaw and have been since 2004. I am very proud of our lovely school and of the varied opportunities we give all of our children to enjoy learning and to succeed. I support a number of other schools during the year and take every advantage of seeing good practice and great ideas……and bringing them back to our school! In my spare time I love relaxing with my young family and enjoying music, film and art.

 

Wendy Clark

Staff Governor / 17.06.20 / Admin Officer at the school /  No  / None

 

I am the Admin Officer at St Anne's Fulshaw. I really enjoy my job which explains why I have been here for over 20 years! In my capacity as Staff Governor I am a member of the Resources and the Personnel, Pay and Performance Committees.

 

Maxine Drabble 

LA Governor / 15.02.21 / None / No / None

Originally from north Manchester I have spent my working career in London as Company Secretary for a variety of international companies across a range of sectors recently focussing on corporate governance and risk management.  Never having taken a gap year I decided to retire early and return to the North West.  I am an active member of St Bartholomew’s congregation and looking forward to contributing to the local community in a variety of ways.
