I have worked in Higher Education for 16 years in a range of roles including medical education, research administration, and as a manager of a large cross-institutional research centre. I am currently employed at the University of Liverpool supporting strategic projects and research development. I have expertise in developing and writing funding applications, allocation of resources, budget management, strategic planning, and setting up new initiatives and programmes. Outside of work, I enjoy reading, music, netball, playing the drums and drumming as a member of a Samba Reggae band.
Eileen Don: Co-opted governor 2023.
My name is Eileen Don and I’m a retired primary headteacher. I taught overseas for about 14 years, then when I returned to England, I taught all round the North West, ending in Blackburn. I’ve been retired now for 12 years and I am also a governor of a school in Skelmersdale.
Wendy Bowe: Co-opted governor from September 2021- present day.
I have over 20 years’ experience working within the higher education sector; largely within project management, research and knowledge exchange related roles. I am currently Strategic Projects Manager at the Liverpool John Moores University, with responsibility for diversifying our income streams and developing external partnerships. Within my current role I also work with the colleagues across the University to lead on university-wide change projects.
I’m excited to be part of the governing body at Pinfold Primary School. In particular, I hope that I will be able to utilise my skills in partnership development, data analysis and project management to help improve the experience for our students, staff and the wider community.
Claire Gagigo: Head teacher from September 2018 to present day
