Dr Maxine Horne

My name is Dr Maxine Horne; I am the Chair of Governors at Wesley School.

As a parent of two children at the school and as a Radcliffe resident, I am keen to support Wesley to serve the children and the local community in the best way possible.  My day job is a full time researcher employed by the University of Salford. I use my research skills to support staff at the school evaluate research into new practice and collect evidence for OFSTED and the local authority around new or current practices in the school. My main area of work for the governing body is around data and assessment. I am also linking up with the Early Years provision.

Alex Hughes

My name is Alex Hughes. I am the Vice Chair of Governors at Wesley Methodist Primary School. My eldest daughter has progressed through the school from reception class to year six. I firmly believe the education and nurturing she has received at Wesley has allowed her to make her transition to high school confidently. My son is currently in year four and is progressing well and is happy in his class.
I have worked closely within the school for the past seven years as a member of the Parent’s Association. In this capacity, I have got to know the school well and I have seen first-hand how the staff at Wesley go above and beyond to enrich the education of the children. I have also gained an understanding of the value of the link between the school and the local community and how this impacts directly on the children’s future.
I thoroughly enjoy my role as school Governor in which I am learning about other areas of school life. My specific link areas on the Governing Body are PE and English. I ensure I attend regular Governor training sessions to keep informed and to learn what I need to know to support the school. I have work experience in management and finance and have just finished studying for an English Degree. I feel the skills I have help me to offer support where needed. Most importantly I feel the greatest contribution I can make to the Governing Body comes from being a parent. I care passionately about my children’s education, the environment they are in, and the people who care for them day to day. I count myself lucky that my children attend Wesley and am glad of the opportunity to give something back.

Gavin Greaves

My name is Gavin Greaves. I am a Parent Governor at Wesley Methodist Primary School. This is the school I went to myself and it is a real privilege to be able to send my own children here and to serve the school as a governor.

Helen Harris

My name is Helen Harris, I am Foundation Governor at the School and have been since the beginning of 2015.   I work in the school Kitchen as a Catering Assistant and I also run the local Beaver Scout Group at Wesley Church of which quite a few Wesley school children attend. The reason I became a Governor is to be able to strengthen the link between the school and the church.

Chris Haines

My name is Reverend Chris Haines, but all the children and staff know me as Reverend Chris. I am the minister of Wesley Methodist Church on Ainsworth Road, as well as of Trinity Methodist in Heywood. I have been a Foundation Governor for six years, since moving to Radcliffe to begin ministry here, and have special responsibility for corporate worship, RE and mission statement implementation, as well as being Link Governor for Modern Languages, Geography and Educational Visits. I have recently returned from a Sabbatical visit to Brazil, from where I sent weekly vlogs to school assemblies, and had a variety of experiences which should further enrich both my ministry in the church and the life of the school.
