Hello, my name is Lesley Crook and I joined the governing body in October 2016 and I am now Chair of Governors. It is an absolute privilege to take on this new role. I am committed to using and developing the wide ranging skills and expertise I have built up over a 43 civil service career to the benefit of the school and to work effectively and enthusiastically with the governing body to ensure its continued success.
I am impressed with what I have learned about the school thus far and, in particular, how engaged and confident the children are in their learning, as well as the motivation and commitment of the teaching staff.
Everyone should have the opportunity to develop to their full potential with learning at school being an integral and interactive part of that process. I welcome the opportunity to be involved in that process and to make a real contribution to Lea Community.
I am John Swindells I have always lived in the Larches area attending Larches primary school and Ashton Secondary school. I have been a governor at Lea since the early 1990’s. I first became a parent governor when my eldest son was in year 4. My three children attended Lea and all got a great grounding at the school, before going on to obtain University Degrees.I worked all my working life as a Fabricator at BNFL Springfields before taking early retirement. I became a Preston City councillor in 2000. I was Mayor of Preston in 2008 – 09 and I am currently Deputy Leader of Preston City Council.
