Beech Grove Primary School

School Governor Information

Reverend Sue Richardson (Chair of Governors)

I was born in York, but have lived in Middlesbrough for 14 years and love it. I am vicar of St Oswalds and St Chad’s Church, as well as having served as a Governor at both Marton Grove and Beechwood Primary Schools before it became Beech Grove Primary School for 14 years too. I share my life with a loopy lurcher puppy called Phoebe and fred the Eternal Goldfish. I like to read and enjoy hearing our children read when I can too.

Charles Rooney LA Governor

I have been a ward councillor since 2003 and represented Clairville ward since 2007. I am currently the exective member for regeneration. I have been a school governor for many years and enjoy particularly seeing our children happy and making progress. I pop into school to listen to pupils read once a week I have been married for nearly 35 years and have two daughters and two granddaughters. In my spare time I like motorcycling and usually travel abroad once a year, I have been as far as the Czech Republic and southern France but most years I travel to Ireland where I have family and enjoy touring. I also enjoy reading and walking and try to use a pushbike as transport to the town hall at least once a week to get some well needed exercise.
