Local Advisory Board Guidance 2017/18


Chair of Governors Dr Parry - Maths, Chair of LAB.

I was elected as a parent governor in 2014 in November and have been Chair since July 2018. I am a research scientist and hope to use my analytical skills to optimise resources. I also aim to develop links between the curriculum and local employers to enrich the experience of children at school. 


Executive Headteacher Mrs Moran 

I have been Headteacher at Woodfield Primary School since 2011. Prior to that,  I was a School Improvement Consultant for Plymouth Local Authority, supporting schools in difficulty, working with both Senior and Middle Leadership Teams across the city.

I has  been designated as an LLE, working with the PTSA School to School support team. In this role I has successfully supported colleagues in schools, which has in turn led to tangible improved outcomes for children.

I became the Executive Headteacher of Salisbury Road Primary in January 2017. I am committed to improving the education and life chances of pupils in Plymouth, and recognise the opportunities and richness that collaboration can bring.

Staff Governor Mrs Minty

Hi, my name is Mrs Minty and I am a year six teacher at Salisbury Road Primary School. I have worked here for 5 years and I am committed and dedicated in helping to move our wonderful school forward. As a governor, I will ensure that the 'teacher voice' is heard and that any new initiatives and changes have a positive impact on the outcomes for all pupils. 

Staff Governor Mr Minty - PE 

I have worked at Salisbury Road Primary for the last five years in several different roles. As a member of staff I see the amazing work that goes on to enrich the children and have seen tools that are shared with them to ensure every young person becomes an independent learner.  As a Staff Governor I want to ensure that all staff members are being heard and consulted on how the school is improving. I have seen many positive changes here. 

Parent Governor Mrs Preece - English

Hi, I'm Mrs Preece and I am a parent governor. I joined the governing body in September 2012 so that I could be more involved with my daughter's school. I am a trained secondary English teacher and I am on the Curriculum and Standards Committee, as well as being part of the Literacy working party. I am particularly interested in reading and writing.

Parent Governor Mrs Granville-West

I was co-opted as a parent governor in July 2018. I am a mum of three children, who all attend Salisbury Road Primary.   I have a background in Primary School teaching. I believe that the staff at Salisbury Road Primary work extremely hard to ensure the children's learning and welfare are the best they can be and are always open to improvement. I am keen to work with and assist the staff at Salisbury Road Primary in maintaining this continual improvement.

 Parent Governor Mr Dutton - Safeguarding

Co-opted as a parent governor in July 2018

I am a former pupil and current parent and I would like to see the school progress and develop into the best school it can be!

I have many years' experience in international education, particularly for non-native English speakers and I hope to bring some new ideas whilst supporting all the great work and current initiatives in place. 

Kind regards,

Chris Dutton

Co-opted Donna Briggs - Safeguarding, Pupil Premium. Vice Chair of LAB

Hi I am Donna Briggs and I am a community governor at Salisbury Road primary school, working within the role since April 2018. I am Deputy Director at Plymouth Teaching School Alliance and have many years of experience of primary school teaching and working at Senior Leadership level within a number of schools across the city. I hope that I can be a good support to the staff and governors within the school and have a particular responsibility for Pupil premium children. 


Early Years Champion - Mel O’Leary

I am an Early Years Advisory Teacher working for the Local Authority to support schools, early years settings and childminders in Plymouth. I started my career as a primary school teacher and have worked across the age ranges.

My passion and expertise is in Early Years. I love the excitement of watching young children discover things, often for the first time. I have a particular interest in the development of early communication, language and literacy and endeavour to promote these crucial life skills through play and playful teaching.
