I am happily married and have two grown up daughters, who both attended SPS. I work in customer service and also as an invigilator. I continue to be proud to play a part in the success of this very special school.

I am a co-opted governor. My roles include safeguarding, child protection and children in care. I also have my own class which is class 5. I have followed their progress since they were in nursery. I really enjoy watching the school evolve. I have been a governor for many years. I am a local child minder too, so a familiar face in the community.

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 KS1 and my youngest has just started in nursery. 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 started his journey in Reception this year. 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.
