Governor Pen Portaits

Joanna Jarrett - Foundation Governor, elected by the PCC of St. Peter's Church.

I became a governor seven years ago when I had three children at the school. I was and still am an active member of the linked churches to St. Andrew’s School and when a vacancy arose I volunteered and was duly elected by the Church. I firmly believe in being a critical friend to the School, questioning and querying decisions made by the Senior Management Team in order to ensure that the best of everything is provided for our children. Their education is very important to me. My special interest is education linked to the Christian Faith. I, along with other Foundation Governors work to uphold the Christian ethos of the School and ensure that the Christian Faith continues to play a central part in the School's activities and planning.

St. Andrew's C. E. School is a vibrant place of learning with a diverse community. It is important to me that I am able to contribute to the school and help it grow. My special areas of expertise are in Music and Education. I was born in Sydney, Australia and have lived in Manchester since 2000.

 

Reverend George Reeves

I am the Rector of both St. Mark's and St. Peter's Churches in Levenshulme, for which I was licensed in June 2017. I have been a school Governor here, and previously in Ashton-under-Lyne, for the last six years. I firmly believe in Church of England schools promoting Christian Values, whilst respecting people of all beliefs and backgrounds. I have the pleasure of coming into school weekly to lead Collective Worship.

 

Brian Selby - Foundation Governor

I have been a member of the Governing Body at St. Andrew’s for a number of years now and also regularly attend St. Peter’s Church, Levenshulme. The school has experienced a considerable amount of change and expansion in the last few years and I feel strongly that as a Governor there is a need for me to have a good working knowledge of the school, understanding both its strengths and where there may be room for improvement. I am confident that St. Andrew’s will continue to succeed and improve which makes my role as a Governor a vastly responsible role, which I take very seriously. Both my children previously attended St. Andrew’s C.E. Primary School.

 

Debbie Anderson - Foundation Governor appointed by St. Peter’s Church, Levenshulme.

As a parent of a child who currently attends St. Andrew’s it is important to me that: every child is included, every child is treated as an equal and that every child is given the opportunity to achieve and reach their potential. As a Foundation Governor it is my role to help to ensure the Christian ethos of the school is preserved and developed.
