Governor Colin Cronin

I was appointed a Local Authority Governor of Churchfields Junior School in 2013. Professionally, I’ve worked in finance for the past 15 years and additional to that am a Councillor for Snaresbrook Ward, the Shadow Cabinet spokesperson for Finance & Resources at Redbridge Council and the Treasurer of the Redbridge Conservative Group. I believe the broad spectrum of skills gleaned from these positions will enable me to be an effective and diligent Governor of Churchfields Junior School, ensuring that any decisions taken by Council in relation to local schools are rigorously questioned to ensure local children continue to receive the best education possible.


I’m a member of the Curriculum Committee and outside of my professional life, am an avid music fan, an enthusiastic pianist & organist and an adult tenor at Christ Church Wanstead so am understandably keen to ensure school children continue to benefit from the fantastic musical programme that Churchfields Junior School offers.


I declare, I or my relatives have no pecuniary or business interests.


Cllr Cronin holds the following responsibilities within the Governing Body:


  • Member of the Curriculum Committee
