Community Governors

Ms Mavis Crofts MBE

Governor role – Attendance link governor and member of School Strategy and Curriculum committee


About me – I have been a Community governor at the school for over 10 years. I have lived in Saltney Ferry (Mold Junction) all my life, I help run our Local Tenants and Residents Association which is now in its 33rd year and I have received an MBE from the Queen in 2015. I am a lifelong member of the Presbyterian Church of Wales and Worship as an Elder at City Road Presbyterian Church Chester. I am also a governor at St. David’s High School. I am now involved with children and grandchildren from my time as a Sunday School Teacher, youth club and parent and toddler groups that I organised from TB then Presbyterian Church in Saltney Ferry, which is one of the reasons why I like being involved with schools.


Statement  – I enjoy being a community governor at Saltney Ferry Primary School, it helps me see the wider picture of education, to understand the financial constraints and also helps me to plan our Associations activities without encroaching on what is already provided by the school. I also enjoy the times I attend the school for assemblies and activities, it is an important part of my life.


Mrs Susan Pinnegar (Mrs Pinny)

About me – I am married and have 3 grown up children and now 3 grandchildren age 7,4 and 1. I have worked as a Nursery nurse for 25 years, 13 of which have been spent at Saltney Ferry School. I recently took voluntary redundancy but still work at the school covering teachers and support staff when needed.


Statement– I really enjoy my role as a governor at Saltney Ferry. The experience gives an excellent insight into the work that goes into running a school. A governor is an exciting and rewarding role where I can use my educational experiences to continually develop the future of our school.

About me  - I am married with two grown up children. For the past twenty years I have worked at Airbus where I have been a manager for most of the time. I am also a Town Councillor for Saltney Stone Bridge ward where I enjoy being hands on in the community. In my spare time I enjoy gardening, DIY, going put for meals and riding my motorbike.


Statement - It is a privilege to be a governor at Saltney Ferry CP as it is a school that my two children and myself attended. It has been a joy to work as a team of governors, teachers, parents and pupils to maintain and continually improve the standards of the school. I am particularly involved with the H&S and Finance of the school with which I have been able to bring and use my career experience.
