Jennifer Pirks - Parent Governor

DallamPM 011

Hello, I’m Jenny. I’m a parent Governor at Dallam Primary School, because I have a child in the Special Provision. I wanted to get involved with the Governing of Dallam, because I feel this school and this community has so much to offer. The staff are all very dedicated to their work with our children and work so hard towards excellent outcomes for the pupils and their families. I have worked in the Neighbourhoods team of Warrington Borough Council for 14 years, in various roles and have a lot of local knowledge of the area and its residents. I have 2 children, one of whom is autistic, so I have experience of the struggles many families face. I really look forward to working with the school to achieve great things.

Hello, I’m Ann Harrison and I am a co-opted Governor at Dallam Primary School.

I have worked at Dallam for 28 years, mainly within the designated provision, as school SENCO and most recently as Assistant Head. During this time I have experienced many changes and seen our school grow and develop. I wanted to be a Governor to be part of this team who are striving to give our children the very best educational opportunities.

I am passionate about our school and I am proud to be a part of a committed team and strong community. I value the opportunity to work alongside parents to support our fantastic children.

Hello, my name is Geoff Boulter and I am the staff governor at Dallam Primary School. Many of you will already know me as I am a MDA at the school and I may support your child as a TA in the classroom.

As a parent myself I understand the importance of a good school and being a part of this is what drives me as a governor.

Hi, my name is Emma Whaley and I am a co-opted Governor at Dallam Primary School.

 I started my career working within a local high school providing pastoral care to children and young people. I then moved into Early Help where I have worked for the past 15 years. For the first 12 years, I worked on the frontline as a Family Support Worker supporting vulnerable families and children across Warrington.
