Leanne Newman was co-opted to the Governing Board in September 2018. Leanne is chair for the Learning Committee, as well as link governor for Vulnerable Pupils.
Leanne has worked in Early Years Education for 20 years, starting as a Nursery Practitioner and now manages a local nursery setting. Recently completing her degree in Early Years Education helps provide quality education and care to children, before they move on to schools such as Beacon Rise.
In Leanne’s own words “I attended Beacon Rise as a child and my daughter is currently at the school. I already know that some of her fondest childhood memories will be from her time at Beacon Rise, as are mine. I feel honoured to be on the governing board, observing and celebrating how the teaching staff champion the voice, abilities and potential of all children. With a staff who are so dedicated to success and fun, there are no limits to what the children can achieve”.
