Parent Governor

As a parent with 2 children at Broad Oak Primary School and a neighbour for over 20 years, I care passionately about the school. 
As with other parents and carers, my children's education and wellbeing are my main priority and I feel privileged to be able to support the school in the capacity of Parent Governor. 

I have worked for both the Private and Public sector and have held many roles such as, Project Manager, Behaviour Improvement Partner, Training Executive and Business Readiness Officer.  I am also a Wellbeing Resilience Coach within my current organisation.

I am committed to work with the school and the rest of the Governing Body to ensure that the outcomes for children within the school are improved where possible.  I hope to achieve this by using my professional skills and knowledge of the school and local community.


Karen Page

Co-opted Governor

I am excited by the opportunity to be part of a leadership management team that directly impacts the well-being, enrichment and education of pupils and being part of building a collective future. 

My son joined Broad Oak after experiencing a difficult few years in primary school before joining this great school in the Acorns provision. Having experienced working with the local authority and relevant agencies to assist him, I feel that I can provide support for parents who also experience difficult times in school with their children.

I have a 25-year career working in public and private education and the delivery of education support and I feel that my experience and skills-set can support the school in improving outcomes for our children.


Shabnam Mughal Mohammed

Parent Governor

My connection with Broad Oak will last for a number years as I have two children who attend the school.  As a parent I can see both my children developing in their academic skills as well as their characters, values and future.
I am a Primary school teacher and an Early Years Phase Leader. I hope to bring my experience and knowledge of the Early Years curriculum as the school is developing future strategies in teaching and learning.

Co-opted Governor - Chair of Governors

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 attended 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.


James Wilson

Local Authority Governor

I am one of the councillors for Didsbury East on Manchester City Council. I was first elected in 2014 and I sit on the Council's Children and Young Person's Scrutiny Committee.

I want to see all the children in our community get the best possible start in life and I want to use my position as a governor at the school to help bring this about.

Frank Atkinson

Co-opted Governor

I am a chartered accountant and have worked in variety of sectors during my career. I have four grown up daughters and one granddaughter. I am happy watching most sports and participate in running and five a side football.

I hope that my professional skills will be useful for the school in dealing with the financial challenges that it faces.
