Meet your Govenors

  Gillian Simm (Co-opted Governor, Chair of the Full Governing Body and Curriculum and Standards Commitee, responsible for Safeguarding)
I’m currently the Executive Headteacher of a large primary school in Ashton-under-Lyne. I also work as a School Improvement Officer for Tameside Local Authority. I’ve been a governor of five different schools since 1988. I live locally and decided to become a governor at Nevill Road Junior School because I wanted to have an opportunity to use my knowledge and expertise to benefit my local community.


Nick Kokkinis (Co-opted Governor, Vice Chair of the Full Governing Body, Chair of the Resources Commitee)
I am passionate about education and believe every child, irrespective of race, creed or social background, should receive high quality education that meets their needs. Trained, skilled and motivated staff should provide that high quality education. I believe I can make a contribution to a successful school that delivers that high quality education for children.

Adam Baguley (Staff Governor)

  Sophie Kreitzman (Co-opted Governor, responsible for Health and Safety)
I was appointed as a community governor in May 2013.  My role is to support the school from the community aspect and I’m currently the Health and Safety Governor for the school. In addition to the Full Governing Board, I sit on the Resources Committee and the Pay Committee.
  Helen Walters (Co-opted Governor, responsible for Numeracy Learning)
I’ve worked for Stockport Council for the past ten years in the Economic Development and Regeneration Team.  I have a son and daughter who both went through Nevill Road and are now at Bramhall High School.  I became a governor because I wanted to understand more about how the school operates and to see if I could help in any way.  I’ve particularly enjoyed supporting the head teacher in developing the school so that all children have the opportunity to reach their full potential.  I’m Chair of the Joint Committee and sit on the Curriculum and Standards Committee.
  Linda Holt (Local Authority Governor)
My day job consists of all areas of recruitment, including assessment centres, psychometric testing and competency-based interviewing.  I recruit all paid and volunteer positions for the Plaza Theatre in Stockport.  I’m also Councillor for Bramhall North, which takes up the bulk of my time.
  Rita Hesford (Co-opted Governor, Development Governor)
I have recently finished my substantive job on education. Whilst I continue to work part time in a number of areas of education, I feel I now have the time to volunteer my services and use my skills if appropriate in school the Development Governor, I look at the skills the governors have and the training they need.
