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 have been designated as an LLE, working with the PTSA School to School support team. In this role I have 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 four teacher at Salisbury Road Primary School. I have worked here for 10 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.
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 - E-Safety
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
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.
Staff Governor - Reading Recovery Teacher - Mrs Rich
I'm Laura Rich and have worked as a teacher at Salisbury Road for a number of years. More recently I've been working as a Reading Recovery Teacher which has provided me with some new challenges and many rewards in supporting the children make accelerated progress. I am looking forward to my new role as a staff governor; seeing the school from a different perspective and helping to make decisions that will continue to improve and benefit the children at our fantastic school!
Co-opted Governor - Ms Gough
I am a co-opted staff governor and have been a teacher at Knowle Primary School another school within the LAT. I have been at Knowle for about 8 years and have taught in KS2 and EYFS. I moved to EYFS 3 years ago and have never looked back. Before taking on the role as co-opted governor at Salisbury Road, I was a governor at Knowle where I covered a maternity post for just under a year. I have really enjoyed my experience so far and look forward to being able to get to know school a little better as time goes on.
