Our Governing Body

Welcome to our Governors’ section.

 

Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.

 

We have also provided a Register of Governor Interests and an Annual Statement of Issues for your information.

You can find out more about the role of Governors and other background information on the Lincolnshire County Council website.

 

Mike Farley

 

Hi, my name is Mike Farley and I was the Chair of Governors for six years and continue to be an active member of the Governing Body.

My background is in Primary Education, be it a full time teacher or a consultant drama specialist. 

Since 2009, I have been a local church minister, leading Lincoln Christian Fellowship which currently meets in Bracebridge Community Centre.

 

Susan Edge- Chair

 

Susan worked in the further, adult and work-based learning sector for over 30 years in a variety of different organisations both public and voluntary.

This included various national quality initiatives and several inspectorates, and so enables her to bring experience of quality assurance and quality improvement.

In addition to being a school governor, Susan is a trustee of two charities and a member of NHS Lincolnshire West Clinical Commissioning Group’s governing body.

 

James Greenwood- Headteacher

 

I have been a head teacher for twelve years in three different schools. I have taught for twenty two years and have worked in three different local authority regions. I am passionate about developing learning and driving schools forward, empowering learners (both children and adults) to achieve both now and in the future. I lead Manor Leas in the way that I would like my children’s school to be led, with enthusiasm, commitment and an understanding of a rounded education.

 

In my spare time I love to spend time with my wife, Amanda, and my children, Louis and Amelia. We, as a family, love to go on long walks with our dog, Bobby.

 

Pat Coates- Vice Chair

I was born and grew up in Lincoln. After training as a teacher I returned to teach in North Hykeham for over 35 years.

Now retired, I am the administrator of a charitable trust, have set up a local women’s group and have, for several years, run an online book selling business.

I have three grandchildren aged 12, 15 and 20 and so with several years as a governor of Manor Leas Junior Academy I am still very interested in education.

 

 

Jo Denny

I was born and brought up in Lincoln and went to Manor Leas Infant School as a child. My training was at Bishop Grosseteste College to become a Primary Teacher and I have been a teacher for almost 20 years.  I have worked at MLJA for four years but before that have taught for most of my career in Bristol and Bath.  In addition to teaching, I am a Mum to two children, a wife and a dog owner.  I love spending any spare time in the garden, playing the piano or baking.

 

Alice Kinloch

 

Hi my name is Alice, I have a Son at Manor Leas Junior Academy and a son at the Infant school too.

I am a self-employed drama practitioner, I work around the county and in the city too. I am based at the Drill Hall where I run several groups and events. I have been working in the community since I graduated in 2000 from Bishop Grosseteste College. 

 

Beth Hicks
 

I was born and raised in Lincoln. After graduating Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, I completed the School Direct (with PGCE) route into teaching through Bishop Grosseteste College. Upon completing my training, I moved back to the North West to teach. Three years after I moved away, I decided to move back to Lincoln, to be closer to my family. In my spare time, I love spending time with my family and going on long dog walks. At the weekends, I am kept busy training my Labrador in Agility and Obedience.

 

Tracey Taylor

 

HI I'm Tracey and I am originally from Stoke-on-Trent. I have worked in Scotland and in Berkshire, but moved here to Lincolnshire with my Lincolnshire husband 16 years ago. I have four children, two of which are in high school, one child is at Lincoln St Christopher's School and my youngest is at Manor Leas Junior Academy. I graduated in January 2017 from the University of Lincoln with a degree in Psychology. I also have a new position as a Residential Support Worker in a special needs school. In my spare time I love being around my family, taking the dog for a walk or socialising with friends.
