I joined the governing body as a parent governor in July 2015, at the time when my eldest child moved from Nursery to Reception. I feel a keen sense of the need for a good foundation in education as the building blocks for success. Being a parent of two young children naturally leads me towards supporting and challenging the teaching and learning in school, and I am on the Teaching and Learning Committee  to encourage progress in these areas. My background in psychology and child development, and work with children with a variety of additional support needs, provides the foundation for my progress as a governor at Kimberley Primary School.

I joined the Governing body in the Summer Term of 2016 as my son Harrison finished his first Year in Reception. Both my wife and I have been so pleased with the education that he has received this year, and I wanted to give something back to the school to help to support this fantastic small community we have enjoyed being a part of. We moved into the Kimberley area in 2010 and have always felt very much at home in the area. The local community has so much to offer, and at the centre of this are the schools and the children within them. I am a Teacher myself and understand the pressures put upon staff, and am looking forward to supporting our Teachers to help deliver the very best education for each and every pupil within the school. I am hoping to be involved in the Teaching and Learning and Resource Management committees that the Governing Body is responsible for. I look forward to sharing my ideas and helping this lovely family community to develop in the next stage of the School's development plan.

I was elected as staff Governor this school year. I am looking forward to taking on this role to help improve my knowledge of Governor roles and to represent our staff voice.  

My degree was a BED (hons) in Early Years teaching. I have always been passionate about the importance of a good start to education and I love my current role as the schools Nursery Teacher. I began working at Kimberley Primary School back in November 2015. From the moment I came to look around school I knew this was the school for me. We have a dedicated and supportive staff and I love being apart of such a great team.  

As well as Early Years education I am passionate about nature and the environment. In our school we have a lot of children who share the same passion and I have enjoyed delivering Eco club and leading the Eco councillors these last couple of years. 

 

 

 

Leanne Sharp

Appointed by: The Governing Body

Date joined Governing Body: 2015 (as associate), 2016 (appointed as Local Authority), 2018 (moved to community upon academisation)

I have been employed by a Local Authority for approximately 13 years and since commencing this role have been involved in supporting maintained schools and academies directly on a wide range of human resources issues from managing sickness absence, recruitment, redundancies and restructuring. After becoming a mum for the first time in 2014 and moving locally to Kimberley Primary School, I decided to put myself forward to become a member of the Governing Body to enable me to offer my experience and skills to the school whilst developing a link to the local community and the school where my son will attend in the not too distant future. I also wanted to see things from the ‘other side’ in terms of learning about the running of the school and understanding the challenges that school’s face on a day-to-day basis whilst also being able to challenge decisions made by the school. I feel that my work experience will significantly help me to be an effective member of the Governing Body at Kimberley Primary School.

I joined the governing body in 2020 as a parent governor, the same year my eldest entered reception year. My youngest will be joining reception in the 21/22 school year so at this critical time in their development I want to be able to provide whatever support I can to Kimberley Primary, as I know these early school years are so important in every child’s life. I have not been a governor before but I am excited to play a part in improving the outcomes of every child as well as the staff at the school.

Since my initial visit to Kimberley Primary, to my eldest starting and through an unprecedented global pandemic, I have watched the staff at KPS adapt and adjust, sometimes at the drop of a hat, in order to provide the best possible support for pupils. This commitment is something I very much want to support with, in any way I can.
