Chris MooreChairman of Governors
I have been Rector of Mordiford Parish Church since 2011, and sit on the governing body as a Foundation Governor. I took over the role of Chair in September 2015. I am also one of the three trustees of the land and buildings.
I have five sons, and have had plenty of experience as a parent of children at schools. I have also been involved in four church schools over the years, and as a Chartered Surveyor take a strong interest in the school’s accommodation.
I regularly take assemblies at the school, and work the the RE co-ordinator to help with the delivery of the curriculum and also collective worship.
Jo Drummond-JonesParent Governor
I have been appointed as a Parent Governor since June 2015. I was born in Hereford and after living in London and Bristol have returned to my hometown. Both my children currently attend Mordiford.
I am an active member of the PTFA, notably organising the annual Halloween event and the main Summer fete ‘Mordifest’ and I am a regular volunteer, most notably during my teacher training.
I have worked in schools for 7 years and have achieved a degree in Education and recently been appointed as a classroom teacher in a local primary school.
I have enjoyed a varied working life which has included corporate roles encompassing ICT, data analysis, marketing and as P.A within FMCG, Property, Transport for London and Finance industries.
It is important to me as a parent and as a governor that the school continues to flourish and improve, producing happy, fulfilled, confident, polite and successful children that it does today with access to as many experiences and opportunities as possible.
Kerri FinneyHead Teacher
I have been Head teacher at Mordiford CE Primary School since September 2014. This is my second headship, and as such I served as an Ex Officio governor, at my previous school, for four and a half years. Prior to that, I was also a staff governor for 5 years.
Since my appointment I have enjoyed working with the governors at Mordiford, it has been a privilege to work with and get to know the volunteers who work so hard to help make our school such a special place. As the Governing Body restructures at the beginning of this academic year, I am excited about being part of the formation of a strong and dedicated team, of both experienced and new Governors, to support the next stages in development for Mordiford CE Primary School in the coming school terms.
Becky WattsParent Governor
I grew up in Herefordshire and still live locally. My husband actually attended Mordiford Primary School over…years ago!! I am a director of my family’s business and so have a wealth of experience communicating with many different people. It gives me great pleasure to see my two daughters happy and excited about going to school every morning. As part of the governing body, I hope to be able to play a part in supporting staff and pupils in continuing to develop a school that offers all children a happy and safe environment in which they have the potential to meet their full potential.
Bev OakleyStaff Governor
I am extremely lucky to be a Staff Governor at our school. I began my long relationship with Mordiford C E Primary School as a parent in September 2002 when my daughter started in the Reception Class. I was struck then, how wonderful our school is. I later joined the team as a teacher and have never looked back.
I live locally with my family and feel blessed to have had the opportunity to be part of such a caring, nurturing and hugely successful place. When I am not at school I spend my time enjoying the successes of my own children and the wonderful countryside we live in.
Although I have been teaching since 1992, I am involved with my husbands business, which keeps me in touch with the world outside the ‘Mordiford Bubble’.

Although not originally from Herefordshire, I have lived in the county for 16 years; 14 years of which have been in Fownhope. Both of my children attend Mordiford School and as a family we are very supportive to the activities PTFA.
My current job is Lead Teacher for The Hereford Academy. This role involves the training of new and post graduate teachers as well as teaching Mathematics. I have in the past been a Head of Mathematics.

I was born in Ross on Wye but moved away during my teenage years only to return to Herefordshire six years ago.
