Mr David Littlewood - Foundation Governor

I was appointed to the governing body in the Autumn Term 2018 as a foundation governor.

I am an experienced governor, being chair of another governing body and previously having been chair at the other school within the parish.

I have spent my entire career in primary education, having been a headteacher, LA officer, university lecturer and OFSTED inspector. I still advise some governing bodies on headteacher appraisal.

Mr Kevin Walsh - Parent Governor

My name is Kevin Walsh, husband of one, father of two, professional actor and driver of Trucks. I have been a parent Governor at Our Lady’s for 4 years.  Born and raised in Latchford and still living in the local area, the family values and catholic ethos that Our Lady’s holds dear, are what first attracted my wife and I to the school, which our two children now attend.  I was delighted to become a parent Governor for the school priding myself in being able to influence those family values, and most importantly the Catholic ethos both in the school; and our children’s lives, to make sure they get the best education, one that they and every other child at Our Lady’s deserve.

Hello, my name is Miss Maddox! As I was lucky enough to follow my Year 1 class up last year, I am the current Year 2 teacher. I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the children at Our Lady's. Year 2 are the best though!! 

When I'm not in school I love exploring the outdoors, especially the Lake District. I have played football since I was little and I have always supported Liverpool. I do love all sports though and I am very passionate about teaching PE!

I am Mrs Emerton and I am the Headteacher at Our Lady's Catholic Primary School. I live with my husband, my two daughters and our small dog.  I am passionate that children are entitled to an exciting curriculum and that learning should be fun and engaging for all. I want to help all children gain the confidence they need to be successful learners whilst they are at Our Lady's and to continue with this throughout their journey in life. Everyone at our school is special and talented, and as a team we continoulsy strive to further nurture and develop these attributes so that our children have a firm foundation in Faith, in the joy of learning, and a stronger belief in themselves.

David Shepperd- LA Governor

I am a Chartered Electrical Engineer working in the Nuclear Industry in Warrington. Part of my role involves managing a small team of Engineers, identifying training requirements, providing advice and guidance. I am also responsible for assuring designs being developed by a number of supply chain Contractors. As a former apprentice myself, I believe that it is important to support and develop young people in the workplace and have mentored and worked with apprentices over a number of years.

As a STEM Ambassador I have undertaken project work in school, mentored pupils, and interviewed pupils about to leave secondary education. These were all challenging yet rewarding experiences.

I became an LA Governor in July 2019.  My role involves working with the Governing Body to support our Head teacher and teaching staff to enable the delivery of good quality education. As a Governor I hope to make a lasting contribution to the development of Our Lady’s Catholic Primary School and its impact upon the lives and education of the children within the school.

We all have areas of specialist interest and professional skills which are focused through our involvement with sub committees and link governor roles, mine being Finance Governor. This role will give me greater insight into the challenges faced on a day to day basis and at a strategic level within the school, giving me the opportunity to work with various team members so utilising my knowledge, skills and experience.

My wife and I have two children who were both educated in a local Catholic Primary School and who then attended Cardinal Newman Catholic High School.
