Governors

We have a supportive group of governors who challenge and work closley with our school. We send home termly Governor Newsletters to parents, which contains important information to help you to know what the governors have been doing each term throughout school. The Newsletter also contains the dates of governors meetings.

I have been a part of Leedstown School for over 20 years.  Both of my grown up children attended the school.  I feel very privileged to be a part of the school, I believe that it is a fantastic school.  I have been a TA at Leedstown and have a bee keeping business that has grown and keeps me busy.  I am thrilled to be able to support the school through a governors role
I have two children at Leedstown School and live in the village, having moved here from London in 2014. I hope I bring a lot to the role through my professional experience in global citizenship education, and my previous experience as a pre-school Chair.
 
I’m a self-employed researcher and project manager, with nearly two decades experience in sustainable development and global citizenship education. I’ve worked with the education teams in organisations such as Comic Relief and the Fairtrade Foundation and have written a range of teaching and learning materials for key stages 1 to 4. I’m passionate about the role schools can play, not just in giving children solid grounding in the core subjects, but also helping them develop as active citizens, who feel empowered to play a positive role in their community and the wider world. I’m also a self-employed Personal Trainer and fitness instructor, so am passionate about encouraging and supporting children and families to stay active and lead healthy lives.
 
Having previously served as Chair of the pre-school, I saw through the sourcing and renovation of the Early Years hut, an Ofsted inspection that resulted in a ‘Good’ judgement and the incorporation of the pre-school into Leedstown School’s Early Years unit. The role gave me a huge appreciation for what can be achieved through the hard work of families, community members and school staff when they work together.
 
As a parent, I have been so impressed at the high-quality teaching and brilliant events and activities that our small school offers. I look forward to doing everything I can to ensure that our staff and leadership team have the support and resources they need to continually improve and offer our children the best educational experience possible.
