Meet the Governors

Mr Morgan Williams ~ I have worked at St Thomas More since September 2016. Prior to that I spent a number of years working in London in various leadership posts including as a headteacher and school improvement advisor for the London Borough of Lambeth. I am passionate about providing every child with the opportunities to be the best they can possibly be and working in partnership with other schools to share good practice and raise standards in education across the sector. I live in Birmingham with my wife and two very young children (aged 10 months and 3 years).

 

Mrs Amanda Kelly ~ I have a passion for Catholic education and wanted to be able to contribute from within here at St Thomas More where I have served as a Foundation Governor since June 2006, becoming Chair in June 2016.  
Having attended this school as a child, living and being a member of the Parish all my life, I felt it was appropriate to give something back to the community.   Whilst my own children went through the school, I was able to be actively involved in many of the school events.  It is always wonderful to see the school full of happy children and staff.  However, don’t be fooled, there is a lot of hard work behind the scenes from a dedicated team of staff & governors – to whom I am forever grateful – that ensures the very best for all our children.  
Rev. Father Stephen DayI have been the parish priest here since January 2015 and a priest for over twenty years. I was a Catholic secondary school RE teacher both before and after ordination, and I have been involved in Catholic education ever since. Education is part of the Church’s mission, and I am committed to helping young people discover God’s love and his call, through studying his world, how it works, the people in it and what he has told us through Jesus.

 

Mrs Dal YoussefI became a Parent Governor in November 2016. My motivation for becoming a Governor stems from my passion for education, specifically Catholic education. I have worked in Human Resources since 2000 with the majority of my career spent supporting the Education sector. 

 

Mrs Cecelia GrantI have been a foundation governor at St Thomas More School since November 2015. I currently hold responsibility for Teaching and Learning and the Curriculum and Early Years. I have 17 years experience of teaching in catholic primary schools in both Coventry and Warwickshire. I have one child who attends St.Thomas More School in Year 3. I have a music degree and play the flute, I am especially passionate about arts education and passing on the teachings of Christ to children in a way that inspires them to have a lifelong faith in God.

 

Mr Declan Webb ~ I became a Foundation Governor at St. Thomas More in 2012. I have one daughter currently in year 5 and two daughters who have now moved up to Bishop Ullathorne secondary school. I am employed by JaguarLandRover, where i have worked since I left school in 1989 , with my current role being  a Supplier Development Manager within the Purchasing function. I enjoy helping Govern the school, bringing experience and learning from Industry, where i feel it can benefit the school. 

 

Mrs Catherine Thomas ~ I became a parent governor in May 2018 because I want to support our school to provide a rich and varied curriculum for our children. As a previously practising teacher I am thoroughly enjoying this new role, seeing education from a different perspective; using my experiences as both parent and teacher to help the school develop and challenge everyone in it.
