Louise Travis-Jones
I have been a governor at Stanningley Primary School since October 2013, I am the Pupil Premium Governor at the school and I support, monitor and evaluate the work of the school in relation to raising the attainment and progress of children who are eligible for the pupil premium. I have two daughters, my eldest is in KS2 and my youngest is in KS1 . I am currently the Class Governor for Year 2, I enjoy spending time with class and will go into to school at least three times a week to support the children with their learning…. This does mean that I can now frequently be caught humming… “We love maths!”
Simon Harvey
I have been a school governor at Stanningley Primary since December 2014. My eldest son started his schooling journey here many moons ago and my youngest son is currently in KS2 . Now a little bit about me, I left a very long exciting career as a security consultant and I was lucky enough to be able to be a house husband for a few years, which I loved.  Three years ago I opened a local shop selling antiques, collectibles and second hand goods, the coolest job in the world and I get to say I'm an Antique dealer.
I applied to become a school governor simply because I love everything that Stanningley Primary strives to achieve and I am very fortunate and proud to be Parent Governor for Class 4.
