Acting Headteacher Governor


Rob Reynolds

Local Authority Governor

I have been a governor at the school since 2017, I am a member of Rainford Parish Council and I represent Rainford on St Helens Council. I am a Chartered Accountant and a Chartered Tax Advisor, I have a degree in accounting and a diploma in charity accounting.  While the above may mean I am not very exciting at parties, I do have a lot of knowledge, skills and experience which are useful in my role as a governor.

I am a member of the congregation at Corpus Christi Church and while I do not attend every week, I am certainly there more than occasionally. The school has a lovely atmosphere and I want to do everything I can to help maintain this. I wear a hearing aid (not a fashion choice) and struggled with dyspraxia at school, so I am particularly proud of our school's record with children with special educational needs.

Tony Ford

Chair of Governors

My whole family has been involved in Corpus Christi for many years.  Both my children were educated here and received an outstanding start to their schooling.

I am a former head teacher and Schools Officer for the Archdiocese. I feel that I have the experience and skills to support our parish catholic school and help to make it the best it can be for all our children and their families.

Jane Monk

Foundation Governor

My aim as a governor is to ensure that Corpus Christi School is well managed and that Governors work closely with the Head teacher and staff to make sure that all pupils, whatever their ability, make the best possible progress in a safe, happy environment.

I have been a Governor for more than twenty-five years.  I have lived in the village for over forty years and have been involved with Corpus Christi for all of those years, as all three of my daughters attended the school.

Denise Gibney

I am committed to support all class teachers and the management team in developing maths so that all children reach their potential.

I am committed to access for all.

I have been an active member of our school and church communities for more than a decade.

I have a specific personal interest in dyslexia.

Melanie Lee

Foundation Governor

Vice Chair

I want the school to be a happy and safe environment for the children to learn, play and to realise their dreams.

I am an active member of the church and involved in many organisations in the village.  I believe in the catholic education, both my children came to this school and went onto De La Salle.

Jason Picket

Foundation Governor

My aim through effective and constructive challenge is to actively contribute to improving outcomes for the children of our school.

Ensuring that we create a school environment that is safe, supportive and happy that provides our children with every opportunity to fulfil their potential.
