Meet the Governors



Helen Harrison - Staff governor, Headteacher – attends all committees



Chair of Governors - attends all committees - Parent Governor

I have two children, one who previously attended Mossley Primary School and one who has just begun her Mossley journey in Reception. 

 Having spent my career working in children’s mental health services, working directly with young people and as part of senior leadership teams, I am dedicated to ensuring the very best outcomes for children, and supporting those that create the enriching environment in which they learn.   

 I am looking forward to working with Mossley as we commit to continually raising standards and helping the children get the very best from their primary school experience.

Revd Ian Enticott - Church Foundation Governor (Ex-officio), Curriculum and Pupil Progress Committee
I have been the incumbent of the Parish of All Saints Congleton since July 2020. I have previously been a Governor of both Primary and Secondary schools and have led collective worship regularly in schools since I was ordained in 1999. Previously, I have been a secondary school teacher at an Anglican Church school in Canada, and I have worked extensively with churches across East Africa in Bible training courses. When our own children were younger, Fiona and I both led regular holiday clubs for children with a Christian theme and held groups for children and teenagers to discover more about the Christian faith.

I have been appointed as a Foundation Governor at Mossley School by the Parochial Church Council. I have lived in Congleton for thirty years with my husband Paul. Our daughter and son both attended Mossley School but are now adults living in Lancashire and Barcelona.
I am retired now after a career in teaching and education, and spend my time gardening, volunteering at The Chappell Centre here in Mossley, running a local Guide Unit and being a member of various guiding committees at county and national level.

Mike Winstanley- Finance & Audit committee - Parent Governor

I joined the Mossley Governors in Spring 2024 as a parent Governor having got to know a number of the staff over the last few years. I have been particularly impressed with the hard work and dedication of all the staff at Mossley putting the children at the centre of everything they do in a happy and positive environment.

I have two children at the school, a daughter in year five and a son in year two, both attend very happily and have received positive support when needed.
I don’t come from an educational background as I work in the aviation industry but am keen on asking questions and finding solutions to problems.
I am looking forward to having the opportunity to listen when needed, provide support and give something back to what is a fantastic school.
