Our Governors

Although part of a Multi Academy Trust, St Mary's still has a team of governors supporting the leadership and management of the school. The board is made up of members, and carries out its responsibilities, in line with the Trust's Scheme of Delegation.

Mrs T Paczek

Chair of Governors, Safeguarding Governor, Curriculum Governor

I have been appointed to the school as a Foundation governor. I have a background in education and am a practicing Catholic. I am passionate about the school and proud to be serving on a Governing body that puts the needs of the children above all other demands. This is reflected in the high priority given to ensuring that every child receives the best possible opportunities in achieving their full educational potential alongside side fostering their love of God and their neighbour. Our school values and reflects the rich and diverse family heritage of our children which makes St Mary’s a very special and exciting place.

Miss J Lindley

Vice Chair of Governors, Whistleblowing Governor, SEND Governor

I work for the Registration service across Cornwall. I’m thrilled to be one of the school’s Catholic governors and I am excited about being a part of our school community. As a former pupil, I have some lovely memories of the school and I am proud to be able to contribute in any way I can to ensure that our school succeeds and that more fantastic memories are made! Please let me know if there is anything I can help with.

Mrs V Wiltshire

I have been appointed as a Parent Governor at St. Mary's. I am married with one daughter who attends the school - a school that she loves being part of! I have over 20 years experience of working in finance and I currently work for a local company as an accountant. Please feel free to come and talk to me if you have any questions.

Clerk to Governors

I have recently retired from my Administrator post at St Mary's Falmouth after 21 years. I have been clerking at Falmouth since 2014 and in 2016 I completed the National College of Teaching & Learning Clerks' Development Programme. I am looking forward to extending my clerking experience and being part of the Governing Body at St Mary's Penzance.
