Meet The Governors
Elizabeth Aspin (Chair of Governors)
I have been a governor at Our Lady of Mount for 15 years, first as parent then as a foundation governor. My daughter, Emily, attended Our Lady’s so I know what an amazing school it is. I have worked for the local authority for the past 27 years and work with vulnerable people in the community. It is a pleasure to be able to serve Catholic education at Our Lady’s. Both children and staff are very welcoming.
I have been a foundation Governor since 2017 and regularly attend mass in the parish. I have previously attended Our Lady of Mount Carmel school as a pupil and I am passionate about helping the governing body support and encourage the school to achieve its full potential. I work at a custodian bank in Manchester and run the local youth group held at St Ann’s parish hall. I am proud to represent the school and part of its community.
I have been a foundation Governor since January 2009 following my retirement from my headteacher post at St. Paul’s Catholic Primary School, Hyde. I was born and brought up in Hyde, attending St. Paul’s and later St. Peter and St. Paul’s, Dukinfield.I have always wanted to support my local Catholic primary schools so was happy to become a governor both here and at St. James, Hattersley. I also work closely with the Shrewsbury Diocese on inspections and appointments of headteachers and deputies.
I currently have three children attending Our Lady of Mount Carmel. They are all very happy and feel supported and encouraged to develop their own individual gifts and talents. Our Lady of Mount Carmel is a caring and welcoming school that strives to put Christ at the centre of everything it does. As a Governor, I welcome the opportunity to be part of the school community and to do my best to contribute to its continued development and success.
I have been part of Our Lady’s school community for 15 years, starting as a parent of two going through the school, a member of the PTA for 9 years (recently resigned) and as a governor. I am the LA Governor, vice chair and chair of finance. I have always found Our Lady’s to be an excellent Catholic school, with a warm welcome to everyone and a high standard of education and behaviour. I am proud to be part of the school family.
I have lived in Ashton for 14 years. I am married to John and we have two children. We are practising Catholics who have a long association with Our Lady’s. My son Jude attended Our Lady’s before transferring to St. Damian’s Science College and my daughter Scarlett is in Year 4. I am fully committed to the future development of the school and the development of all children regardless of background or ability. I am currently Senior Deputy at a large Catholic secondary school in Leigh, Wigan. I don’t really have any time for hobbies but I do like going to the cinema, reading, camping in Scotland and long country walks.
