Governors at St Alban's Catholic Primary School

David Caldwell - Chair of Governors

Contact email:

I joined the Governing Body in September 2020 and was elected as Chair of Governors in November 2020.  I am very pleased to have been re-elected as chair of Governors for this current academic year.  I live in the area and I am a parishioner St Alban's Church. I have had 37 year's experience of working in Catholic Primary Schools. I was Headteacher of 3 very different schools in the Greater Manchester area for a total of 26 years.  I am now retired, although my wife and I are kept rather busy helping to look after our 9 grandchildren. I am looking forward to working with everyone connected with St. Alban's Primary School so that, together, we can provide the very best education for our children.

I can be contacted either through the school or on the email address listed on the website.


Teresa Cooke - Head Teacher Governor

I am extremely proud to be the Headteacher of St Alban’s Catholic Primary School.  It is a joy and a privilege to be part of such a wonderful school community.  I am now in my 8th year of headship and my 30th year of teaching.


Roisin Moores – Foundation Governor

It is a privilege to serve as a Foundation Governor in my own Parish School – a school that my own three children previously attended. I have many years of experience working in Catholic Education, including 17 years of headship in a Diocesan Primary School. I currently work part time for the Diocese supporting a range of schools and also serve as a Denominational Inspector for our Diocese. I have wide experience of governance and currently am on the Governing Boards of two other schools.


Colette Robinson – Foundation Governor

I have been a foundation governor at St Alban’s school since 2012, where both my grandchildren have attended. I’m a parishioner at the church where I help with the Baptism and First Sacraments teams. After almost 40 years as a dental practitioner I am now retired and so have the time and commitment to give to the role of governor and its responsibilities. I was fortunate to receive a good Catholic education and so am more than happy to support and promote St Alban’s as it strives to provide the the same for all our children...a gift for life.
