Governors List


Any correspondence to the Chair of Governor should be sent C/O Wycliffe CE Primary School, Saltaire Road Shipley BD18 3HZ or via the email address below.

CHAIR: Mr J Preston (Jason.Preston@bdat-academies.org)

My name is Jason Preston. I live in Shipley and currently have two children attending Wycliffe – a Year Two and a Year Three. I decided to become a governor to help the school maintain its high standards and be a place for great learning. I work for the University of Leeds and am learning new things about education every day! In my professional life I’ve been responsible for large budgets, commercial contracts and managing diverse teams of people – I want to use the things I’ve learned and experienced in my role as governor.


My name is Karen Webster and I have joined Wycliffe Governing body in September 2021. For the previous 6 years I was headteacher at ‘Woodlands CE Primary School’ (BDAT). Over the summer this year, I have taken the decision to return to the classroom to gain a better work life balance and follow my heart back into face to face teaching for the last few years of my career. I am currently teaching a Y1 class at ST Philips CE Primary Academy (another BDAT school).

I felt my previous experience in education would be of benefit to a governing body and school, such as Wycliffe, to support them in their journey. Over the last few years I have seen the hard work and dedication from both the Senior Leadership Team and staff at Wycliffe to move their school forward. I share this passion for teaching and the wellbeing of pupils and staff in school.


STAFF GOVERNOR: Miss Charlotte Furniss

PARENT GOVERNOR: Miss Rebecca Atkinson

My name is Rebecca Atkinson, I’m a journalist and writer, and parent to two children (one in year three, the other due in year one). I am passionate about social and climate justice, and ensuring children are supported and empowered to become active citizens.
TRUST GOVERNOR: Saba-Gabrielle Moussa
My Name Saba-Gabrielle Moussa,  French, established in Bradford for 25 years; passionate about our District. I am a Bradford Council officer supporting the Immigration and Asylum Unit and a lay activist in the community and the trade union. I am already an executive of the Saffron Dean Community Association supporting local community with their needs and wish to become a Poverty Champion. One of my passions is around social inclusion. I am an honorary director for Uk Butterflies and NGO, who support EU citizen with their immigration status. My specialism area, as an Advocate, is to look after cases coming from children and adult services. I deal with issues such as domestic violence and modern-day slavery. It’s very rewarding to work with very vulnerable families and with individuals. Becoming a school governor was for me the next natural step as I can share my experience and expertise as we prepare the future of our city which has a vibrant, young, ever-growing population. We need to invest and nurture them, making them responsible citizens who will contribute to the prosperity of our district and city.
I am married with two grown up boys, who were educated at Saltaire Primary and Beckfoot. I lives in Saltaire, and formerly ran Saltaire Bookshop on Saltaire Rd. Having previously served as a governor at Saltaire, Hirstwood Nursery & Frizinghall I was keen to take up being a school governor again after moving back to the area after six years in Lincolnshire. My particular interests are helping the school in its liaison with the wider community, to the mutual benefit of both and working to support the school with the other governors, the staff at school and pupils and parents/carers at Wycliffe
