Governor Profiles

Christine Nurse

I have been a Governor at Dovecot school for about 17 years and have been the Chair of Governors for 8 years. During this time, I have seen many changes, in particular, from the old leaky building, to our bright, modern welcoming building.

I have particular responsibility for Child Protection and I am on the Curriculum and Resources Committees. I attend meetings regularly and enjoy visiting the school where I always find a warm welcome, happy children, dedicated staff and a lovely, safe environment.

I am very proud of Dovecot School, its children and the staff and Governors, who work together to promote the highest standards of education. I feel very honoured and privileged to be part of the team at Dovecot School, and hope that in some small way, we are helping our children towards a brighter and better future through a good education.

I have worked at Dovecot since September 2017 and am thoroughly enjoying being a part of the whole school community. I am privileged to work with a fantastic group of staff and Governors who give their all to ensure Dovecot is the best it can possibly be and a place where the children feel happy, safe and secure.

I have always wanted to work in education right from an early age, lining my teddies up on the stairs and taking the register! I was one of the rare few who knew where I was going and what I wanted to be when I grew up. I trained at the University of Hertfordshire and completed a four year Bachelor of Education Honours degree. St Helens was where I began my teaching career in 1992, and have also worked in Halton Local Authority.

I am also Head teacher at Blueberry Park Primary School and am fully committed to establishing a strong partnership between our two schools to ensure that we constantly improve and reach the high expectations we have.

I have been a Governor at Dovecot school for just over 5 years. I represent the Local Education Authority on the governing body and I am a Councillor on Liverpool City Council representing the Knotty Ash ward in which Dovecot school is located, so I know the local area very well. I chair the Resources Committee which has responsibility for the school’s finances, staffing and the school buildings.


I have two daughters and work in the health and social care sector which I have done all my working life. It’s always a pleasure to visit the school and see first-hand the hard work of the children and staff and I enjoy seeing the work that the children display around the school building. I work alongside the other governors to support the head teacher and staff to ensure that we provide the children who attend Dovecot with the best possible start in life.

I have current and extensive experience in education as I have been a teacher for over 30 years and a headteacher for 9 years working with children aged 4 -11. I have safeguarding and safer recruitment training and I am also responsible for Safeguarding in my current post. I sit on the Curriculum & Standards Committee and I am passionate about providing the best opportunities possible for all pupils and ensuring they reach their full potential. I support and challenge the work of the school so that it can continue the good practice taking place. I enjoy working with such a committed team of staff and Governors at Dovecot Primary School and helping to direct the work of the school.

I became a Governor for Dovecot Primary School in February 2016 and I really enjoy visiting the school and meeting with children, parents and teachers and sharing in their many achievements.

I work full time for one of the local universities in teacher training, and before this taught I.T. in secondary school. I have three grown up sons and hope to use my experiences as a mother and as a teacher to improve outcomes for all children. It is a privilege to be part of this positive, warm and friendly community at Dovecot Primary.
