Our Governors

At Leechpool, the Governing Body is highly valued, teamwork being a priority. We work with the school, with the aim of improving standards and striving for excellence.

Good governance is not just about sitting in meetings. We endeavour to stay updated on, and apply, new legislation. Our governors are hands on and assist with school events such as fayres, fundraising events, new parents induction evenings, outings and special events. Governors also attend classes to monitor the impact of the teaching on our learners, assemblies, inset and training days, inspections and LA reviews, to name but a few areas of involvement.

Current parents are welcome to contact governors with questions or general feedback. Please note that parents should always contact the school directly with any concerns. Likewise, we encourage any prospective parents who are thinking of sending their children to Leechpool to browse through our website and, importantly, to visit our school so you can see first-hand what Leechpool has to offer.

Regular Governor Updates

Below is an update of the recent work we have been developing as a Governing Body.   This section of our page will be regularly updated to let all families of the school know what issues we are addressing to improve the provision of education for the children of Leechpool.

Parent Governor: Joint Lead for Safeguarding

I joined the governing body of Leechpool School in October 2022 and I have been appointed as the Lead governor for Safeguarding.

I have a child in year 3 and, through my experiences as a parent so far, I have found Leechpool to be an excellent school with caring and dedicated staff. I look forward to supporting the strategic development of Leechpool and see the school continue to succeed year on year.

I have a background in operational management within the public sector and I am excited to have the opportunity to bring the wide range of skills and experience I have gained over the years to the governing body and thereby benefit the school and its pupils.  

It is a privilege to be involved in such a positive community, with a strong ethos of wellbeing and inclusivity and I am grateful for the opportunity to play my part.
