Meet the Governors
Wendy Curtis (Chair of Governors)
I moved into Abbey Village in November 2016 having lived for the last 35 years in Bolton. My husband and I decided to retire to the village and have never regretted our move. We love the rural surroundings and how easy it is to visit family and friends in the surrounding area.
I have worked in personnel management, Learning and Development, management coaching and community learning where I taught adults English and Employability Skills. During my teacher training, I visited primary schools in Manchester and held sessions to help parents understand how English is taught in reception class.
My experience prompted me to ask if I could volunteer at Abbey Village School to listen to the children in reception and year 1 classes read. I’ve been doing this for three years and enjoy every minute of my time in school. The warmth and friendliness of the children and the staff has made my visits a very positive and heart-warming experience.
I applied to be a governor when a vacancy arose and have been on the board of governors for three years. I became Chair of Governors in September 2021 and I’m very keen to encourage members of our Abbey Village community to join our board. Please contact school for further information.
