  1. Governors

Mrs. E. Dawes - Parent Governor
 
Mrs. J. Dorsett - Associate Governor
 
Mr. D. Greaves - Parent Governor
Chair of Resources Committee

 

Joy Lowes – Co-opted Governor

I have lived in Dalton for 30 years and my children attended Chapel Street Infants and George Romney Junior Schools. I am a governor at Chapel Street and served as chair at George Romney for a number of years.

As a governing body I would like to think that not only do we have a responsibility for the effectiveness of the school but we also have a passion for the children to succeed and achieve their full potential.
 

Mrs. M. Marshall - Co-opted Governor
Vice Chair

Mr. C. Peniston – Associate Member
 

I am the proprietor of a well-recognised and highly recommended Double Glazing and Conservatory business based in Dalton.

I have long been associated with George Romney now for a number of years, becoming a Parent Governor in 2001 when the first of my own two children attended the school. Although my children are now in their early twenties, I have continued to serve as a Governor, more recently as a Local Authority Governor and now, with the recent reconstitution of governing bodies, I have decided to become an Associated Governor.

Although my own business occupies the majority of my time, I value my links with the school and consider that I still have a lot to offer as a member of the Resources Committee and I enjoy the challenges and rewards of the role.
