Mrs K Czimbor - Foundation Governor

I was born and raised in Transylvania and I came to live in the UK in 2010. I regularly attend the Church services of St. Elphin’s Church together with my daughter and my son, who is a pupil at St. Elphin’s.

I have had many different positions over the last 20 years and I hope I can transfer some of my experience to my role as Foundation Governor. I am dedicated and committed to supporting the school to reach set goals and to achieve high standards.

I hold child education in high regard and I feel children should be happy and confident to enable them to become the very best they can be. I am determined to work with staff and governors to support the Christian values of the school and promote the best possible education because I believe that every child should have the opportunity to succeed in life. I also believe that each child is unique and capable of succeeding even if they have different learning styles and pace.

Mr P Carty - Local Authority Governor

Paul has recently been appointed as a Local Authority Governor for the school.  Born and raised in Warrington he has extensive experience in the finance and management of schools, along with accountancy in private practice and is looking forward to using this experience to help the school grow and develop in the future so everyone can reach their full potential.

Mrs W McKinnon - Foundation Governor

I was appointed to St. Elphin’s governing body by the diocese of Liverpool in October 2020. I have taught for over 30 years and have been the head teacher in a local church school for the past 6 years. I believe that through their experiences in school children can make beautiful memories and achieve more than they think they are capable of. I am looking forward to working with the staff and governors at St Elphin’s to ensure that the school continues to be the best that it can possibly be.
