I have lived in Longlevens for twenty years and I am married with five children and recently two grandchildren. I have been involved with Longlevens Infant School as a governor for 15 years. Two of my sons have attended the school and have enjoyed many successes and I am sure this was due to their education starting with solid foundations. I also feel that our school is at the heart of the community nurturing our children and bringing our families together to celebrate what a brilliant place Longlevens is to live. I feel privileged to be a part of Longlevens Infant School and thoroughly enjoy my involvement. I work for the Local Authority within education.
A Co-Opted Governor and member of the Resources Committee at Longlevens Infant School. I live in Longlevens and I’m married with two children who attend LIS, as such feel I have a vested interest in the success of the school and in the development of the children who attend. I’m a Qualified Accountant and Chartered Insurer working for a socially responsible and ethical Financial Services Group based in Gloucester so I hope my experience and background will mean that I can support the school in managing its resources, developing its strategy and providing governance to some of the key subjects taught.
A member of the Resources Committee and a governor at LIS.
Originally from Kent and moved from Suffolk to Gloucester in 2012 for work opportunity in Bristol, but now work nationwide.
I am a civil engineer and work for an international construction and services company in the UK Rail sector.
I am married with a son who attends LIS but will be moving to LJS in the autumn (2016).
I am keen to be involved with the development and progress at the school for future generations of children.
I am married with two children, one of whom is just beginning her journey into education with Longlevens Infant School, a journey which, I am sure, will be both challenging and fun. I live in Longlevens, and have done so for the majority of my life. I bring with me a wealth of experience in the construction sector both on the financial as well as the delivery side of the industry along with previous experience of attending and chairing committee meetings of construction related institutions. I feel fortunate to be able to contribute to such a successful school and look forward to what opportunities the future brings.
I live in Longlevens with my wife and daughter, who attends LIS, I have lived in the area for over 30 years and have worked in the banking sector for the last 20 years. LIS has been fantastic for my daughter, who has developed and grown as a person through the hard work put in by all of the staff. I am passionate about giving something back to the school & the local area, using my experience within the finance sector to help the school retain its high standards and remain sustainable for future generations.
I am an ordained priest serving as curate at Holy Trinity church in the parish of Longlevens. I live in the parish and am married with 3 grown up sons. Prior to ordination, I worked with special needs children and as a qualified teacher taught reception to year 6 classes in mainstream school, with additional responsibility for leading and coordinating a number of curriculum subjects. I have a passion for high standards of education and giving each child the opportunity to reach their full potential. I look forward to supporting the school in my role as a co-opted governor, serving on the achievements and standards committee and with responsibility for the curriculum area of knowledge and understanding, focussing on Religious Education.
