Governors

In England, Wales and Northern Ireland, school governors are members of a school’s Governing Body. In state schools they have responsibility for raising school standards through their three key roles of setting strategic direction, ensuring accountability and acting as a critical friend. They are the largest volunteer force in the country.

Governor’s Profiles

Julian Liddiatt (Chair)

I re-elected Chair in October 2018 and joined the Governing Body in Autumn 2018. I have two children Robert and Charlotte at Bryn Offa and want to do the best for them and all the other children at Bryn Offa during my time as a Governor. I currently work as an Account Manager for Ricoh who manufacture photocopiers and printers

Reverend Kathy Trimby

I was ‘re elected as Vice Chair in October 2018 and sit on the Board as a Foundation Governor as the local Rector of Llanyblodwel, Llanymynech, Morton and Trefonen parishes, known collectively as the Border Benefice. As well as being committed to the Spiritual and Moral Education of the children and staff in our school, I am also firmly committed to their emotional and mental well-being as well and I strive to ensure that all who teach and learn at Bryn Offa, are happy, healthy and well rounded, well adjusted individuals both inside and as far as possible outside the school as well. My greatest wish is that the children and staff are the very best of themselves that they can be in all things and with all people.

Mrs Lisa Humphreys

I joined the Governing Body of Bryn Offa CE Primary School as a Parent Governor in Spring 2018, having previously been a pupil at Bryn Offa. I have two children currently at Bryn Offa in Class One and Class Four. I became a Governor because I am driven to get the best for our children. I will always support the school where I am happy with the provision, and have the confidence to question and challenge where I feel things can be improved. In my current job I manage the hospitality at the local golf club, as well as the health and safety. I’ve completed my NEBOSH (National Examination Board in Occupational Health and Safety) Certification and I also volunteer for St John’s Ambulance.

Mrs Ann Jones
I joined the the Governors as a Foundation Governor from Morton Church. I loved my career as a High School teacher, and now I am really enjoying my time as a Governor at the Elementary level. I may have retired but life certainly has not slowed down, with the time to take part in many interests. As I have often heard from others, “I don’t know how I had time to work”, and I can attest to that!

Roberta Houghton

I recently joined the Bryn Offa Governing Body as the Local Authority Governor.  Since my appointment I have not been able to meet the other Governors in person but have been made welcome by both them and the school staff and look forward to the return of normal activities in the not too distant future.
Whilst brough up in the area I have spent many years in South Wales working for the NHS delivering Primary Care IT systems.   I moved back to the area a few years ago where I continue to work in my job part-time whilst spending most of my spare time taming a very overgrown garden.
I have a keen interest in education with a daughter-in- law who is a primary school teacher and two grandchildren entering early years schooling.

Register of Business Interests

From 1 September 2015, Governing Bodies are under a duty to publish their register of interests on their website. The register should set out the relevant business interests of Governors and details of any other educational establishments they govern. The register should also set out any relationships between Governors and members of the school staff including spouses, partners and relatives. ‘None’ should be recorded on the entry on the register by Governors who have no interests to register.

All governors returned a nil return in 20/21 apart from Mr Julian Liddiatt (works in photocopier firm)
