Chair of Governors - Mrs Lyndsey Brown

Hello, my name is Lyndsey Brown and I am the chair of governors at the school and I am very pleased indeed to be doing this role on behalf of the whole school community.  I am passionate about achievement and outcomes for all children and I will be following keenly the progress of this wonderful school.  I have so much admiration for the dedication and commitment of the staff team here at Shirley Manor and I am keen to continue supporting the growth of the school so that all children benefit from what is on offer here.  As parents/carers, you have made a great choice by sending your son/daughter to school and if either myself or any of the governors can be of assistance, please do not hesitate to contact any one of us via the office.  I look forward to meeting as many of you as I possibly can in due course.  When I am not involved in school work, I enjoy a simple coffee letting the world pass me by!  That and a good film suits me just fine!

Community Governor -  Mrs Leighanne Doherty Bedford

I am passionate about education and have extensive experience of working in schools both within my role as a HR Manager for a Multi Academy Trust and Leeds City Council.  I also have a 5 year old son who recently started school and understand the importance of getting it right for our children and the importance of parental involvement to help us as Governors to get it right.  As a first time Governor there is definitely a lot to learn and do but I'm excited to be part of the journey SMPA is on.  If you see me in and around school please do come and say hello.

Headteacher - Mrs Heather Lacey

I have been the Headteacher of Shirley Manor Primary Academy since September 2016. I am enjoying making a difference to the children and staff at SMPA. I love travelling around the world exploring new places and can often be found in the company of elephants whether in the flesh or as the cuddly variety in my office. I am a keen Blackburn Rovers fan (no laughing please!) and can often be found watching my favourite team.

 

I am on all committees and support the Governors with the knowledge of the running of the school.
