My name is Lesley Edmondson and I became a foundation governor in 2017.
I am a member of St. Stephens’s Church and am involved with helping at the Toddler Group there. I am now retired but worked for many years as a primary school teacher.
I believe that a good primary school can be key in giving children a confident start in their educational journey, and is also a place where children can grow in personal confidence and in their ability to get on with people from different backgrounds.
I have been impressed with the work of St. Stephen’s School in these areas, not least in the model it shows of people of different faiths and backgrounds working together, within the context of a church school.
I look forward to being part of a committed governing body that seeks to help the school be the best that it can for each child.
