Chair, Foundation Governor
My name is Sean Mclaughlin.
I would like to introduce myself as the Chair of Governor of Our Lady of Sorrows. I have been a Governor
for over 20 years and have enjoyed helping the school progress over the years. I am a farther of two who
attended Our Ladys. My background was working for British Coal but now work in the Care Sector.
My areas of interest are Maths and RE. As a Governor I hope to help achieve the best for the School
and its Staff.
My name is Amy Tucker, I have been a Governor at OLOS for 2 years and have recently been appointed
as Vice-Chair of governors. Education is an important part of childrens lives. I feel that children spend
as much time in a school/education setting as they do at home and therefore it is important to provide a safe and nurturing environment for them to thrive in and become the best that they can be. My role as a governor
aims to monitor and question all practices within school to help achieve a high standard of education
and wellbeing for all pupils. Within this role I am responsible for specific areas including safeguarding,
attendance, behaviour and pupil premium and finally safer recruitment.
within grassroots football means I have a vast amount of training and experience within safeguarding
in different settings and therefore feel I can bring this experience to Our Lady’s and all my link roles.
