Governors Pen Portraits
Nicola Birchall (Governor) Pupil Support Committee
I am a parent governor at Mosslands School. I became a governor in 2016 as I wanted to be involved in making sure the school provides the best opportunities for our boys. I hope to represent other parents.
I have had 2 boys complete Mosslands and 1 currently in year 9. I sit on the pupil support committee.
I work in a local primary school and have done for 15 years.
Sue Euers (Governor) Standards Committee
I have been a parent Governor at Mosslands School since 2015. I have two sons who both attended the school however, my eldest son has now gone to University but my youngest son is still at Mosslands and has just moved into the sixth form. My background is in Business Administration, but my passion has always been teaching. 14 years ago I decided to retrain as a driving instructor and I now run my own driving school. I am also a Beaver Leader at a Scout Group in Wallasey and have been for the last 30 years. I sit on the Standards Committee and feel privileged to be involved in supporting and challenging the school so that every pupil is given the opportunities to reach their full potential.
Jim Backinsell (Governor) Resources Committee
I have been a Co-Opted School Governor at Mosslands since November 2016. I bring over fifteen years of public sector HR and people management experience to the role, with a specialism in learning and career development. By day I work in HMRC as their Head of Accelerated Development, and am really keen to share my HR experience in supporting the development and ambitions of the school. In addition to my committee role, I am also Link Governor for the Humanities and will be working closely with the Heads of Geography and History on their strategic development plans.
