Governor Profiles

John Janulewski

Local Authority Governor – Chair of Governors

I have recently moved to Manchester from a life in education across the Pennines in the Hull and East Riding area. I was Headteacher at a successful Hull secondary school and then went on to become School Improvement Adviser in the East Riding where I worked with both primary and secondary schools. I have a strong belief that my role is part of a body that aims to give the children of Broad Oak the best start in life academically, both in terms of results and of their happiness and enjoyment of school and learning.


Jon Haves

Parent Governor

I have been professionally involved in education for over 20 years, initially as a secondary school teacher in Macclesfield, then as an education project manager for several local authorities and currently as the ICT Development Director for a large independent school. I truly believe that whatever setting a child finds themselves in - whatever school, keystage or class - they deserve an education that is rich in opportunities, personally engaging and challenges them reach their full potential.  

As a Parent Governor, I work to ensure that Broad Oak exceeds my expectations as a school for my children - and in doing so I hope we are creating a school that exceeds the expectations of all our parents and wider East Didsbury community.


Ann Johnson

Co-opted Governor

I served Manchester City Council, as a teacher, for 36 years finishing my career as an Assistant Headteacher in a high school. I am a former pupil of Broad Oak Primary School and am pleased to help the school move forward.

Parent Governor


Kim Burrell

Parent Governor

I work for a child mental health research charity and my particular focus is on the role of schools in supporting the emotional wellbeing of their pupils.

I have had children at Broad Oak since 2010 and am passionate about the school and what it has achieved in recent years. As a parent governor I hope to use my professional background and knowledge of the school to support and challenge the management to continue to improve the school for all of our children.

Richard Osler

Co-opted (Staff) Governor


Richard Pearce

Co-opted Governor

Richard is a lawyer who has been working in the North West and living in Didsbury for over 30 years. All three of his children went to Broad Oak (many years ago!) and two of them now teach in other schools.

He was formerly Vice Chair of the Governing Body at Broad Oak and he is also a member of the Greater Manchester Learning Trust, of which Parrs Wood high School is part.


Chris Pyle

Co-opted Governor

I'm a Business Studies graduate who moved to Didsbury over 20 years ago. Professionally I have worked in the recruitment industry for 20 years assisting organisations to resource key members of staff to aid their development - some of these organisations were schools based across the North West.

Having worked in the private sector I hope I bring a different perspective to the governing body at Broad Oak and can use this experience and insight to help the school achieve its objectives.

My 2 sons attend Broad Oak School and my aim as a Co-Opted Governor is to improve the school in any way I can to enhance the education experience of my children and the rest of the school community.
