 NICKY FOX – DEPUTY HEAD TEACHER/STAFF GOVERNOR  - Appointed on 02/01/2011

My whole career has been in Catholic education and I have been privileged to teach at St. Nicholas Catholic Primary School since 1996. My two children attend Catholic schools within the Diocese of Leeds and both have had very happy and positive experiences in their schools.  I always try as a teacher and a school governor to ensure that all the children at this school will also have this experience.  I have been Deputy Head at St. Nicholas since September 2015 and look forward to ensuring that the children in our care see their years at this school as very positive.

ANNA PICKUP – FOUNDATION GOVERNOR/FINANCE - Appointed on 01/02/2015

I am a former pupil of the school and was born and raised in this parish. I went to university in Newcastle where I met my husband, and we now have a little boy called Joseph.  I do not live in the parish anymore but still attend mass at St. Nicholas Church.  I work as an accountant and have a keen interest in the finances of the school.  My dad has been a governor in the school for over 30 years and it is a very special place for both me and my family.  I joined the governing body in 2014 so that I can stay involved with the school and use my skills to help support the Head Teacher and staff in the running of the school.

FATHER EUGENE MCGILLYCUDDY – PARISH PRIEST/FOUNDATION GOVERNOR - Appointed on 01/02/2015

I have been a priest in the Diocese of Leeds for over 40 years. Currently I am the Parish Priest of this Parish (Blessed Edmund Sykes).  I am a school governor of two primary schools St. Nicholas Catholic Primary School and Our Lady of Good Counsel Primary School in Seacroft.  I am also on the Governing body of Corpus Christi High School.

One of my main roles in both schools is a pastoral and spiritual one providing the staff and children with firm family base upon which to grow in faith, building our community and gaining appreciation for the common good with the dignity of all. It is a great honour and a privileged to be of service to St. Nicholas in the name of Jesus Christ and the Diocese of Leeds.  Yours in Christ. Father Eugene McGillycuddy.

JOANNE SCANLON – FOUNDATION GOVERNOR - Appointed on 01/02/2015

I have lived in the parish for the majority of my life, attended St. Nicholas School and was married at St. Nicholas Church. As a parent, both my daughters attended the school where they enjoyed every day and were given a first class start to their education.  As a family we attend St. Nicholas Church regularly to celebrate mass and are active members of the parish community.  I currently work in Community Nursing and have links to many schools which gives me an excellent insight into the life within a primary school.

I have been a Foundation governor at St. Nicholas for 9 years, a role which I am extremely proud to hold. My aim as a Governor is to help maintain the catholic ethos of the school and the strong links within the church, whilst supporting the Head Teacher and the staff to ensure that pupils, both present and in the future are given every opportunity to reach their full potential and receive an excellent education in a caring environment.
