Governor Profiles

John Janulewski

Local Authority Governor – Chair of Governors

I have recently moved to Manchester from a life in education across the Pennines in the Hull and East Riding area. I was Headteacher at a successful Hull secondary school and then went on to become School Improvement Adviser in the East Riding where I worked with both primary and secondary schools. I have a strong belief that my role is part of a body that aims to give the children of Broad Oak the best start in life academically, both in terms of results and of their happiness and enjoyment of school and learning.


Jay Henry

Co-opted Governor - Vice Chair of Governors

I have worked in education across sectors for over 20 years. I am a Senior Lecturer in Education and Educational Leadership & Management at Manchester Metropolitan University. I have also headed a Sixth Form and have been an Assistant Headteacher in two high schools. 

I have experience in leading a wide range of areas including raising achievement, safeguarding and teaching and learning. I have taken part in extensive training, including the Future Leaders development programme. I strongly believe in continuing to improve practice and will always support opportunities for staff development. I have an academic and practical interest in educational leadership and management and feel my skill set allows me to support and challenge the school’s leadership team. 

In terms of Broadoak, I have had a child at the school since 1999. This really has allowed me to develop good relationships with staff and children and seek to ensure that we continue to provide quality education for all. 


Jon Haves

Parent Governor

I have been professionally involved in education for over 20 years, initially as a secondary school teacher in Macclesfield, then as an education project manager for several local authorities and currently as the ICT Development Director for a large independent school. I truly believe that whatever setting a child finds themselves in - whatever school, keystage or class - they deserve an education that is rich in opportunities, personally engaging and challenges them reach their full potential.  

As a Parent Governor, I work to ensure that Broad Oak exceeds my expectations as a school for my children - and in doing so I hope we are creating a school that exceeds the expectations of all our parents and wider East Didsbury community.


Ann Johnson

Co-opted Governor

I served Manchester City Council, as a teacher, for 36 years finishing my career as an Assistant Headteacher in a high school. I am a former pupil of Broad Oak Primary School and am pleased to help the school move forward.
