Toni Woodhead               CHAIR OF GOVERNORS

I have been a governor at St Augustine's Primary School for four years and I am very honoured to be the Chairperson. I am a retired secondary school teacher and I have found working in a primary school to be very interesting and rewarding. I am proud of this school and I want everyone to know how well this school works and how outstanding the pupils are.

If you need to contact me, please send this in writing to St Augustine's Catholic Primary School and Nursery, Conwy Court, Runcorn WA7 2JJ. 

Christine Smith               VICE CHAIR OF GOVERNORS

I retired as headteacher of a local Catholic primary school after 40 years of teaching in Runcorn. I was then asked to become a governor of St Augustine's. I have many fond memories of teaching here in the 1980's.  I was delighted to become part of this successful school where polite and confident children thrive in a happy and stimulating environment.

Nina Chwastek              SAFEGUARDING GOVERNOR

I am in my second term as a Foundation Governor at St. Augustine's. I bring my expertise in education to this role. I am a member of the Finance Committee but also the nominated Safeguarding Governor. I have spent my whole career in education, currently working as Headteacher at a large Catholic primary school in Manchester. I am committed to ensuring our children at St. Augustine's have the best chances in life. This means not only promoting high academic standards but also personal and social development to give our children the skills to succeed.

Being part of the journey of St. Augustine's is very important to me- it is a privilege to work in such a warm and friendly school.
