AN INTRODUCTION TO OUR GOVERNORS
ANN MITCHELL-CHAIR OF GOVERNORS
I have worked for St Wilfred's C of E Academy for 9 years as the Finance and Operations Manager.
One morning in December 2013 i woke up and started to think about my New Year's resolution. I decided as opposed to giving something up I would give something back. This led me to thinking about volunteering and subsequent thoughts for organisations or people that have done something for me or my family, that i may be able to help. As both of my sons have successfully come through Our Lady's and have gone on to do very well it felt like a good idea to offer some support and maybe some of my education experience to Our Lady's and help in any way that i could.
I grew up in the community around Our Lady's and when I moved out of the area I still chose to send my boys here. To me I have always seen Our Lady's as a beacon in the community that surrounds it and it holds a special place in my heart.
JULIE ACKROYD-FOUNDATION GOVERNOR
I have worked at Our Lady & St John Catholic College Blackburn for 33 years and during this time, one aspect of my job I have particularly enjoyed is liaising with primary schools, including Our Lady of Perpetual Succour. As a result, I was proud to have the opportunity of joining the governing Body in 2015.
My subject specialism is English, which i have enjoyed teaching to a range of pupils over the years. Currently I am the Safeguarding Lead at Our Lady & St John and I also have a specific responsibility for Children in our Care; my governor responsibilities in these areas therefore complement this.
I am a member of the National Trust and I enjoy reading and going to the theatre; I am currently trying my hand at flower arranging!
I am married with two grown up children, Born and bred in Colne, I have always been an active member of Sacred Heart Parish (now part of the Good Shepherd Parish). For a number of years, I was a Children’s Liturgy group leader. I am currently a member of the church choir.
It is a privilege being associated with Our Lady of Perpetual Succour. I will work hard to serve its community and support everyone in it, in the best way I can.
CLARE SPICER-FOUNDATION GOVERNOR
I have been a geography teacher since 1989. My first post was in Scunthorpe where i worked for 3 years. I then came back to Lancashire and have been at Our Lady & St john Catholic College since, starting as a class teacher and progressing through various pastoral and academic roles to my current position as Deputy headteacher. during this time i have also completed a Master's degree in catholic Leadership.
My spare time is spent with my husband and children,although by September all 3 will be at university! I love to walk my dog, Finney, and i am currently studying for a diploma in floristry. I live by my motto of 'lifelong learning' and aim to enrol for a new evening class each year. So far i have tried pottery, watercolours, stained glass and international cooking!
I am privileged to be a governor at OLPS and i hope i am able to serve the school and community in faith and action.
