Mr Lyndon Jones  (Chair of Governors)

I retired in 2007 from the Forensic Science Service, where I worked first as an analyst/toxicologist, latterly on business projects in IT, finance, performance monitoring and Quality management.
I have been a Governor at St Ignatius’ for over ten years. I got to know the school when my wife worked there. She continues to support the school in a voluntary capacity, listening to readers and helping children with English as an additional language. I have no business  ,or  financial interests affecting this role.

Proudly, I am a father of three grown up children and grandfather of seven.
I am also parish treasurer for St Joseph’s Church, Withnell.

I really enjoy my role as Chair of Governors and hope to support the school, staff and pupils in many ways.

Hi, I am Dave and I currently have two job roles. My first role is as a manager with a disability service for Lancashire County Council. It is a busy day service over two sites where over 70 adults live with learning disabilities, autism and physical disabilities.  I have been with LCC in one capacity or another for nine years. My other work role is as a Psychotherapist, Counsellor and Supervisor. I work across the range of conditions although if asked me which work excites me the most it is my work with family, couples and eating disorders patients that I am most drawn to.  In my former life I was a retail manager for Argos working all over from St. Helen’s to Burnley and I did that for fourteen years. I joined as a local authority governor around twelve months ago. I have a large family with 5 brothers and four sisters. I am volunteer with Cruse Lancashire (bereavement charity) where I counsel bereaved people, supervise volunteers clinical work and I sit on the management committee.  In my  down time I love walking and developing mindfulness is a big part of my life. I hope all these things mixed together will help me to play an active and useful role in what is a great school.

Previous I was a teacher. I work in the Parish of St Joseph’s, Hoghton. I enjoy doing Children’s Liturgy Group, and I am also the safeguarding member of my parish . I became a governor once I retired as I was keen to maintain my links with the education system and with the school.
