The Governing Body at Leavening School as of March 2019 is as follows:

Headteacher -   Mrs Sian Mitchell 

I have been Head teacher at Leavening Community Primary for 6 and a half years now and I have thoroughly enjoyed  working with each and every single pupil at the school and have embraced each challenge with passion and continue to do so.

I have 2 young children, who keep me busy when I am not at school.

Vice Chair of Governors - Dr Neil Audsley

I was Chair of Governors for 12 years and a member of the Governing Body for even longer. My two teenage sons attended Leavening School.

 

 

 

 

Staff Governor - Louise Peers

I have been teaching at Leavening Primary school since 2012.  I am Senior teacher and curriculum leader. I am skilled at teaching across the primary range and feel very lucky to be part of such a special school. I have 2 children and an army of dogs!

 

 

 

 

Chair of Governors - Mr James Robinson

I have been a parent governor for 2 years and recently became Chair of Governors.

I have 5 children 3 of them currently at Leavening school and when my 2 youngest are old enough they will also attend.
At work I am a barrister based in York

 

 

 

Co-Opted - David Sharpe

I am a retired teacher, I have been a governor at Leavening School for 11 years and prior to that I served as a governor at a secondary school. Recently I have taken on the role as link governor for Mathematics, which has been a privilege to see Mathematics in action at Leavening.

I moved to Leavening from York, in 2014 and my twins are now at the schoolI’ve worked in various education organisations and at both Universities in York. I have Bachelors and Masters degrees in English Literature and I write and occasionally teach poetry. I am passionate about learning and literature and have already enjoyed helping students in Oak Trees to craft their own poems for an upcoming competition.

Mum to Oliver who is currently in Year 2. Previously employed by East Midlands Electricity & then the NHS when I moved to Yorkshire. Married to Steve (he attended Leavening School) who is a beef/arable farmer so I now help out on the farm. I’m usually the one in the playground in wellies & a fluorescent coat!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Parent Governor - Susie Kemp  

I have lived in Leavening since 2000 and have worked in secondary school education (in an IT capacity) since 2002.  My eldest daughter benefited greatly from Leavening School and my youngest continues to do so. 
I’m passionate about supporting this wonderful school and its staff, in order to help it thrive so many more families can enjoy being part of this special little community.
