Holy Saviour Governing Body
At Holy Saviour we are blessed to have a wonderful team of Governors who are dedicated to our school. Our Governors meet three times a year as a full Governing Body and then at least another three times in addition to this for the committee they may be part of. Most of our Governors belong to either the Finance, Staffing and Premises Committee or the Curriculum Committee.
Mr Bernard Swarbrick
Chair of Governors
Child Protection Governor
Reverend Father Chris Gorton
Fr Chris is the local Catholic priest who is very happy to have been part of the family of Holy Saviour school for the last eleven years. He comes into school regularly for whole school and class Masses, to help where possible with different topics, support events, be at the school gates and be in the playground sometimes at playtime.
The school is an important part of The Good Shepherd Parish and Fr Chris enjoys home visits with reception, year three and year six. Fr. Chris firmly believes that if you are involved in the school then you are part of the parish!
Mr Chris Bohills
Vice Chair of Governors
Chair of Curriculum Committee
Chris is the former Headteacher of our Catholic High School, Ss John Fisher and Thomas More in Colne. Now retired, he is still dedicated to Catholic Education as a Governor at Holy Saviour.
Chris has a strong belief in providing Catholic education and wanted to continue to help our young people develop as Christ wants them to. Chris feels Holy Saviour is a school which serves the community as a whole and he is very proud of our wonderful staff and pupils.
Mrs Janet Motyka
Janet has been involved with Holy Saviour School for the past 25 years, six as a volunteer and the last 19 as a member of staff. She is currently in her second term as staff governor. Within her role as governor she serves on the curriculum committee. Janet is also the link training governor which means that she organizes the training courses for all the other governors. Another role Janet has is the Eco Council governor. The role of a staff governor can be both challenging and rewarding and Janet has built strong links between the governing body and the staff of the school. Janet feels being a governor gives her a chance to make a positive contribution to children's education.
