Governor Pen Portraits
I have two children, one at St. Andrew's and one looking forward to starting school. I am originally from New Zealand and relocated to England in 2012, moving to Levenshulme when my older child was just a year old. I really enjoy the community feel of Levenshulme and how this continues within the school. I am happy for the opportunity to support this wonderful school in the role of a Parent Governor.
Reverend George Reeves
I came to work at St. Andrew's in January 2017 and currently teach Year 6. I have been a teacher for 25 years and have taught across Key Stages 1 and 2. I have led English and Assessment and been a KS1 and KS2 Phase Leader and a member of a Senior Leadership Team. I became a co-opted governor in March 2018 and was delighted to have the opportunity to be a part of the Governing Body for St. Andrew's. I have a strong belief that all children should be given the best start in life academically, through their enjoyment at school and learning, and my experience of working at St. Andrew's supports this ethos.
I’m from the North West and have lived in Levenshulme around 14 years, having two children here, one currently at St Andrew’s and the other due to start in 2023. I work for an environmental charity and am passionate about community and environment. I really appreciate St Andrew’s for the diversity of our school community, and the importance the school places on the values of kindness, caring, cultural diversity and fairness. St Andrew’s is a lovely school where staff and children are valued, and I’m keen to support and contribute to the school as best as I can in the role of governor.
I have lived in Manchester since 2010, moving to Levenshulme a few years later. I am married and have two young daughters. We are active members of Longsight Church of the Nazarene. I am Chair of Levenshulme Inspire Foundation and I work for Citizens Advice in Stockport.
I am Research and Business Development Manager for an educational publishing specialist and have over ten years experience in educational content for print and digital media, as well as market research and thought leadership. As LA Governor, I want to support the school so that the staff can focus on giving the best education to all the children. St. Andrew's is a lovely school; It is vibrant and fun and the school's values reflect my own.
