Mr Paul K Turner - Chair

After finishing my degree in Engineering at Huddersfield University in 2003, I have been working for Cummins Turbo Technologies in a variety of different roles including Project Engineer, Operations Leader for the aftermarket remanufacturing department, and most recently within the company’s worldwide manufacturing support group where I have responsibility for new product launch strategy and integration.

Having my own children at Infant and Primary school, I take an increasing interest in their education, their environment and how school encourages and helps them to learn through interesting topics and activities.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, taking days out and about on our bikes. I also play rugby through the winter which involves many Saturday afternoons playing and some training during the week.  

Mr Kevin Johns - Governor

I have been a Governor since 2016.  I have a background in Engineering, a patternmaker by trade but moved into sales and I am now a Key Account Manager selling pneumatics for a Bradford-based company.  

Both my sons attended Moor End High School many years ago, which gave a sound education.  One is now in teaching and the other, after 10 year in the forces where he reached the rank of Captain. is now a fire fighter.

In my free time I enjoy scouting and have been a warranted leader for over 40 years.  I also officiate for UK Athletics as a time-keeper.  I have had the privilege of attending many high profile events including the 2012 London Olympics and 2017 World Championships in London.

Mr Hafiz Ur-Rehman

I joined Moor End Academy in 2014 to teach Science. I have been teaching for over 8 years, in Sheffield, Manchester and Huddersfield.  The reason I came into teaching was because of several years of voluntary work at Kirklees Summer Camp, where I really enjoyed working with young people then as much as I still do now.

Mrs Fiona Thompson - Staff Governor

I joined BPA in 2016 to teach Reception and lead Early Years. I have been teaching for over twenty five years, the majority in Oldham but also in Derbyshire and the West Midlands. I have specialised in Early Years for over ten years, and thoroughly enjoy seeing children develop through their first years in school. It has been a pleasure to be part of setting up our new school, and I am proud of the contribution I have made.

In my free time I enjoy travel with my family, and walking my dog in the hills near my house. I am involved in my local church, where I help to run 'Messy Church' for local families.

Mrs Zillah Doyle - Parent Governor

As a mother of four children (of various ages), I have experienced all stages of the education system from Primary School through to University. All of my children have attended Moor End Academy at some point in their educational journey with my youngest son currently being in Year 2 at Beaumont Primary Academy.  The ethos and commitment of the excellent staff within Moor End Academy inspired me to stand for the role of governor.

 I am a strong advocate of the state education system and believe that school should be more than just learning to read and write. My youngest son was actually the first child in the new pre-school and transferred very happily to Beaumont Primary Academy.

I am a local business owner with a passion for engineering and developing young people. Outside of work I play netball, watch sport in any form, and taxi my children everywhere. 

Mohammad Afzal – Parent Governor

As a parent myself, I take a keen interest in children's education and development. I feel that I have the passion, motivation and commitment to pass this onto others and make improvements, where and if needed.

My background is a mental health worker for the NHS (National Health Service). I provide care to people with mental health issues, substance misuse, poverty and other social problems. I believe my experience within this field can help the school by providing the necessary support to students. 

Within the community, I feel I am an excellent advocate and have a strong passion for ensuring all students receive a first-class education.

Mohammed Shafiq - Governor

I have experience in working with teenagers and I have always been passionate about education and its importance. So much so that I have returned to University and I am currently doing a post graduate diploma is social work. My interest in helping people and communities has always been at the forefront of what I do and being a governor will enable me to support the academies in achieving excellence and adopting the academy values.  As a parent of 3 children, I value the education system and know its importance for the future of our next generation. 

In my free time, when I get any, I like cycling, walking, and spending time with my family.
