The Governing Body at Leavening School as of September 2018 is as follows:

Headteacher -   Mrs Sian Mitchell 

I have been headteacher at Leavening since September 2012. This was my first headship and I was adamant that I wanted to start this vocation in a small school where I had a flexible teaching role so I could lead by example and instil a culture of 'teaching with passion' throughout the school! Every day brings a new challenge that I embrace and I feel very fortunate to be headteacher of such a thriving school. My spare time is spent running around after my two children who are 3 and 1 years of age..


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

 

Louise has been teaching at Leavening Primary school since 2012. She is Senior teacher and leader of curriculum. Louise is skilled at teaching across the primary range and feels very lucky to be part of such a special school. Louise has 2 children and an army of dogs!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Parent Governor - Mr James Robinson

I have been a parent governor for 2 years and have 3 children at the school.
I live in Norton. At work I am a barrister based in York

 

LA Governor - Mrs Carolyn Childs

 

In 2013 I moved to Leavening from Kent. I love living in the village and am delighted to have been invited to join the governing board of Leavening Primary School.

 

My career is in education.  I taught in mainstream and in special schools, and as a pre-school home-visiting teacher for children with significant needs. 

 

I held local authority adviser posts for Special Educational Needs, for Excellence in Primary Schools and also for Curriculum Development.  I was a primary school headteacher.    

 

Latterly I have worked as an independent education consultant.  I have supported private clients and schools, as well as many local authorities, schools and centres around the country, engaged in a wide variety of development work. I have worked closely with many school governors, headteachers and senior leaders, as well as with school support staff and parents. I am a nationally accredited School Improvement Adviser and an Ofsted Inspector for Schools. 

 

I have two children, who are both married, and two grandchildren; all of whom indefatigably keep me on my toes and ensure my education continues!
