Meet the Governors

Alison Dunabin

My involvement with Wincham school began in 1997 when my eldest daughter (now married and a Senior Environmental consultant) started in the reception class.

 My second daughter (now a Primary school teacher) also started her school career at Wincham. Initially, I was a committed and busy  member of the PTA helping to organise several Summer Fayres and other fundraising events. 

I became a Governor at Wincham in 2004, was elected vice chair in 2007 and became chair in 2009. I have a business background in marketing and negotiating for a range of products in the retail industry and I have also worked in financial services, as Parish Clerk and as a Governance professional in Halton. I was also a Governor at the County High School, Leftwich for eight years. I am privileged to be able to work with my fellow Governors towards ensuring that our vision for the school is to provide an education which fully equips all the children for life in our ever-changing and challenging world.

During my 8 years as a governor at Wincham, I have been a parent governor, a co-opted governor and Vice chair of governors which has allowed me to sit on many of the committees to support Wincham to provide an excellent education for all the children. I am a qualified primary school teacher and have worked in school improvement for over 20 years as a Mathematics Consultant mainly within the North West. I have two almost grown up girls now who definitely keep me on my toes but I wouldn't have it any other way! I also have a beautiful dog which I love to to spend time walking in the great outdoors.

Dave Bradburn - Safeguarding Governor

I was initially elected as a Parent Governor at Wincham and then later Co-opted. During that time I have been involved in various committees within the governance structure and have had opportunity to see and support the school from a variety of angles.

Most recently I have taken on the role of Safeguarding Governor, observing the vital role that the school fulfills in this area. My career and qualifications are as a graphic designer and business owner - thereare aspects of that experience that have been useful to bring to the Governing Board and equally some experience gained as a Governor that has been useful in business.

My daughter (now in Year 10) is a former Wincham pupil
