Mrs Mary Saul
Co-opted governor and Vice Chair
I have recently retired from self employment as a Commercial Insurance Broker. As well as running my own company, I was a member of "Business Networking International" and was chapter director in Liverpool City Centre. Also up to the end of last year I was an adviser for CAB in Ellesmere Port. In addition to this I have been on the Board of Fundraisers for Wirral Autistic Society and have spent time working in the youth court at Chester Magistrates. I joined Brookhurst school as a community governor and have responsibility for SEND and Safeguarding. I also work alongside the children in the school garden.

Mr Kevin Williams
Parent Governor and Chair
I am a parent governor who currently has 2 boys at Brookhurst: Alex in Y5 and Harry in Y1. My eldest boy, Jack, has recently left too go to secondary school. As a parent I have seen my boys grow academically and socially, developing in confidence as a result of the many concerts, drama productions and sporting events.
Through my 18 year background in safety training I have gained experience in a number of areas helpful to the position of school governor, including working within budgets, appraisals and the further learning and development of a nation wide team. I am analytical and will support and objectively challenge decisions if I feel it will benefit the school, staff and pupils.
I have a Nebosh diploma in Health and Safety and a degree in law which I hope will help me assist the school in monitoring and providing the best possible education for our children in a safe environment.
I am a proud parent like all of you, consistently wanting the best for all pupils at Brookhurst, and for them to continue developing in an enjoyable, challenging and varied learning environment.
Mrs Liz Davidson
I have been headteacher at Brookhurst Primary School for nine years. Prior to this I had 22 years of teaching experience which included eight years as a teaching deputy head. I am proud of the ethos of our school which can be summed up in the statement from our last and very successful OFSTED inspection; “Putting pupils at the heart of the school.”
As a headteacher governor I work closely with the governing body to ensure they have an excellent understanding of our school vision and how this is embodied in our curriculum and learning environment. We aim to have a “hands on” governing body who are welcomed into school to meet with both teachers and pupils..
Mr Anthony Cond
I have been a governor at Brookhurst since 2010, initially serving as a parent governor and latterly as a community governor. My children Charlotte, James and Ella all attend the school.
My day job is as the Managing Director of the publishing subsidiary of the University of Liverpool, where I am also an Honorary Fellow in the School of the Arts. In addition to running a business with a seven figure turnover, I am actively involved in higher education and served as part of an expert panel assessing the quality of modern languages research in UK universities.
During my tenure on the governing board at Brookhurst I have held specific responsibilities for Finance, Curriculum and Literacy and I have also acted as both Chair and Vice-Chair.
