Why am I a Parent Governor?

  • Mr Richard Coombs

    Chair of Governors Parent Governor

    When Harry and Imogen started at Farnworth, I wanted to be part of their school life. I have a desire to help and support not only my own children but the whole school community. Primary school is a wonderful environment every child and parent should treasure.

  • Mr Martin Philcock

    Parent Governor

    As a local secondary school teacher I have been fortunate to teach many Farnworth pupils during the next phase of their educational journey. When the time came to choose a primary school for my own children a major factor in the decision was my experiences of the Farnworth pupils. I wanted my children to reflect the same qualities when they started secondary school and for me Farnworth was the only option.

    My decision to apply for a governors role was to offer my help and experience to what I believe is an outstanding school and be a part of securing our children's futures during this time of change and uncertainty in the educational system. I am passionate about the educational of our children both at farnworth and within the wider community.

  • Mrs Clare Bedford

    Parent Governor

    As a parent, I chose Farnworth School for our two youngest children, Amelie and Henry, because of the school’s Christian ethos and values. These shine throughout the school and make it a very special place for our children to start their education. I stood as a Parent Governor to help maintain this uniqueness and to do what I can to see Farnworth flourish.

  • Mr Keith McKnight

    Parent Governor

    I offer my time and skills to Farnworth School because I am passionate about it being the best it can be. I want only the best for all the children who attend including my daughter and nieces. I feel honoured and privileged to have been elected to this role.
