David John Eccles - Associate Governor

(Resources Committee)

My invitation to join the Governing Board as an Associate Member came during 2016. Having a lifelong personal and professional interest in schools and education, as a teacher (20 years), working in local authorities (10 years), and as an independant consultant (7 years), it proved difficult to decline the offer.
My Governance experience has been at Locking Stumps Primary for over 22 years continuously, and at 4 other schools at various times during that period, including a Secondary school. In addition I have also served as Head of School Governance in two north-west authorities.

It is my hope to be able to support the Governing Board, and use my professional background in education, to help to increase the leadership capacity of the school, and promote and maintain the high standards expected at Croft Primary, by providing advice when and where appropriate, and as requested.

I have also served as a Magistrate for the last 12 years. I live locally with my wife, and have three grown up daughters...oh yes, and a dog!
