Meet the Governors

Vickie Butcher

I am Vickie, I have two grown up daughters, a dog and my poor husband who has to live with three women. I have worked in the charity sector for over 20 years both in local and national charities. I currently work at the NSPCC as a fundraising manger. I have been the chair at both my children’s schools PTA and I guess, I just want to “make a difference!” I love meeting people and hearing of new and innovative ideas…… I am a little maverick too!

Lindsey Yates

I have worked at Broadway Primary School since 2002.  I am School Business Manager and a member of the school leadership team. Both of my grown up children attended Broadway. Originally from Bradford, West Yorkshire I came to Haslingden in 1976. I am also a school governor at Haslingden High School.

Hannah Gibbons

Hi I’m Hannah. I’ve been a teacher for 16 years and have had experience in teacher in primary schools and schools for pupils with SEMH and Special Needs schools. I am currently the English lead at a secondary SEN school. I love hearing about all the amazing things that the pupils and staff at Broadway Primary School achieve and how hard everyone works!

Dave Leonard

I have one child at the school and I have a daughter who left the school in 2016. I work as Head of ICT at a local secondary school. I have been a governor for a number of years and I also contribute to the school’s PTFA.


Fiona Martinez

Hi I’m Fiona. I have a daughter at our school and two older boys. I live locally and work as an Occupational Therapist for a Local Authority. We support people with disabilities to be as safe and independent as possible in their everyday lives. I qualified in 1998 and have worked part time for the past 17 years. I have lots of practical and creative skills and enjoy being involved in school life to enable our Broadway family to continue to grow.

Ellie Lorenzo

Hi, I am Ellie, I have lived in the Valley for over 20 years. I am an experienced governor with over 15 years’ experience within several different schools. I currently serve on the Local Governing Board at another school within Haslingden.  I am passionate about children being given the best opportunities to explore, learn, grow, and develop as learners! I have an education background, with a lot of experience for children with Special Education Needs. My other passions include my family, food, and fitness.

Joanne Alban

Hi, I’m Jo. I have a daughter and son at Broadway. They both thoroughly enjoy their time at Broadway and we all think it’s a fab school. I work in the legal sector and specialise in child care which is interesting and rewarding. I live in the local area and enjoy the community spirit that is connected to the school.
