Our Governors

  • Mrs E Neal

    Headteacher Governor

    I have been Headteacher at Stanton Road Primary since 2006 following three years as Deputy Headteacher. Since the birth of my first child in 2013 I have worked three days per week as part of a co-headship. I have a Masters in Education Leadership and Management with a particular interest in Inclusion as well as Teaching and Learning in the Primary Years.

    I have recently begun support for Leadership and Management development in other schools through my role as NPQH trainees. I lead the EYFS and support the SEND networks as part of the Multi Academy Trust and represents the primary academies on the Wirral Schools Forum.

  • Mrs S Cotton

    Chair, Co-opted Governor

    Term Ends October 2020
    I am Chair of Governors at the school. Prior to this, I was Vice Chair of Governors. My particular interest is around teaching and learning and the curriculum. I have been a governor at the school since 2011 and thoroughly enjoy my continued involvement with the school.
    My background is in Education. I taught in Wirral from 1978 on a full time basis and was Headteacher of a local primary school for 14 years. I was President of the Wirral Branch of NAHT and also involved at regional level. As a Life member I still take a keen interest in latest moves to influence education in this country. Linked to NAHT, I was a member of the Wirral Schools’ Forum.
    I was involved as an external assessor and tutor in relation to standards of initial teacher training at the University of Chester. When I retired, I was a coach and mentor for some of the newly appointed Headteachers at Wirral Schools. I gained much insight from both of these roles as I have strong commitment to Continuing Professional Development and challenge at all levels within schools.
    I am passionate about children being able to achieve the best possible outcomes academically whilst developing confidence and enjoyment of learning. I hope that the leadership and management skills I gained during my career continue to be of assistance in my role.
    Since June 2017, I have become a Trustee of Oak Trees Multi Academy Trust. I look forward to the challenges this brings and, as stated earlier, hope my previous skills are of some benefit.

  • Miss H Wilson

    Staff Governor

    Term Ends September 2022
    I have been teaching at Stanton Road for four years and I am delighted to have been elected as staff governor. I have always admired the close community that is built around the school, which includes teachers, support staff, parents and governors, and I think it is great testament to what makes our school unique.
    It has inspired me to think about what more I can offer as a member of staff and I look forward to creating a vital link between staff and governors, in order to support our school in its journey
    My interests include dancing, Zumba fitness and anything Disney!
