Governing Board Information

Welcome from our Chair of Governors Mrs Susan Varga

I have been a governor at St Oswald's CE Primary School since 2002 when I was appointed as the Local Authority representative by Sefton Council. I volunteered to become a governor because I wanted children in Sefton to get the best education possible. I am a qualified Accountant with over 37 years experience of working for Sefton Council working in performance management and children's performance. I have recently retired and I now have the time to commit to being the Chair of Governors.

I was lucky as my parents always thought a good education was paramount, they always supported me and I wanted to give something back to try and help the children of Sefton reach their full potential in a safe and secure environment. Having worked for a Local Authority I am used to getting things done on a shoestring, working in partnership to get value for money by finding new and innovative ways of doing things.

I would recommend being a governor to anyone.
