Name: Judith Gibson

Role: Foundation Governor (Diocese of Chester)

Position: Governor Lead for Safeguarding and Wellbeing

Experience: I was once a secondary school teacher but spent most of my working life in safeguarding families from domestic abuse and sexual violence. I have been a governor at Christ the King since its beginning and am proud to support the excellent work everyone does in keeping children and families safe from harm and ensuring their voices are heard and acted on. I also enjoy volunteering locally with Cre8, particularly in food sharing and cooking. 


I have lived in Macclesfield for some 40 years but my home is in Northern Ireland where education can sometimes separate people from different religious communities so I am very proud that Christ the King brings people together.  


Name: Caroline Mottram

Role: Foundation Governor (Shrewsbury Diocese)

Position: SEND governor

Experience: I have worked at AstraZeneca in engineering, project management and validation roles for the last 22 years. I have been a governor previously at Christ the King and both my children attended the school for their primary education and flourished here before moving on to secondary school. I’d like to help Christ the King provide the same great opportunities my children had to the children in the school now. I live locally in Macclesfield and I’m a member of St Edwards parish.
