Mr Neil Diamond – Chair and Co- opted Governor

Term of office – 01.09.2017 to 01.09.2021


I’m a married dad of two children, and both of my daughters attended the school between 2012 and 2020.  I originally became a parent governor in 2017 and although my children have now left Town Lane, I’m keen to give back as much as possible to the school which provided them with such a fantastic start to their education.


I am currently a Solicitor at the Charity Commission, where I advise the Commission’s enforcement staff on high-risk cases involving misconduct and mismanagement within charities.  Prior to qualifying as a Solicitor, I spent 7 years working in criminal investigations for another public authority.

  • Mr Sean Britton

    Parent Governor

    My name is Sean and I am a married dad of two children and I live locally in Higher Bebington. I have vested interest in the school as my eldest daughter in our school and in the future as a family, we intend for our youngest daughter to attend the school too.

    I am currently a Head of Department for Design & Technology at Hilbre High School. I have been in the education sector since September 2007 and I have gained a vast range of experience in a range of diverse settings, as well as having teaching and learning responsibilities since 2008. My initial training focused on Primary and Secondary School education and I also hold a National Professional Qualification for Senior Leaders.

    Ultimately, Town Lane Infants School is at the heart of the local community that my family lives in and I am eager to support the school and staff to the best of my ability and to give all students who attend the school the best possible experience at the start of their academic learning journey.

  • Mrs Jo Jury


    My name is Jo, I was elected Parent Governor in July 2017. I am mum to my daughter who is at Town Lane, and I have a son who will (hopefully!) be going to Town Lane in a few years.

    I have been working as a qualified Clinical Psychologist in a learning disability service for 3 years. I take a positive approach to wellbeing, and believe that compassion and empathy are the most important tools that I have in my possession.

    Outside of work I love spending time with my partner and my children. We have just joined the National Trust and we love making up a picnic and taking ourselves off for a day out somewhere. Before I had my son I was a member of Katumba - a Liverpool samba drumming group who you might have seen parading round the streets or at festivals making lots of noise. I hope to rejoin them once my son is a little less reliant on me!
    Term dates July 2017-July 2021

  • Mrs Large

    Headteacher (ex officio governor)

  • Mrs Price

    Staff Governor

I have worked at Town Lane Infant School since 2006 and currently teach in Foundation 2- Early Years Lead. For the last three years I have been part of the Leadership Team, with responsibility for Early Years. As a teacher governor, I feel that I can give good insight into the day-to-day life at the school and also be involved in shaping the future of Town Lane. I want the children at our school to achieve the best they possibly can and leave us well prepared for the next stage of their education, with lasting, happy memories of the years spent with us.
