Reverend James Grainger-Smith (RE and Community Liaison)


Mr Robert Richardson (PE and PSHCE)


My name is Bob Richardson and I am a Foundation Governor.
Jean and I have been farming in the village for many years as well as my teaching livestock production at Bishop Burton college.
Our two children attended Leven school.
I am Chair of the Wray Educational Trust which supports young people from Leven and also Chair of the School Premises Committee.
I help Year 4 with their gardening plots and we are always happy to welcome school visits to our farm.

Mrs Rene Mattock


I’m René Mattock and I am a Foundation Governor at Leven.  This means I was appointed by the church and diocese to help oversee the Christian values of the school.  I am an accredited Methodist Local Preacher but now attend worship at St Mary’s in Beverley and will be taking one service a month at Holy Trinity at Leven from September.  

My children attend the school and I feel it is important to play a role in guiding and continuing to move the school forward, aiming to make it the best place for our children to start their journey through education.  Therefore, enabling our pupils to achieve the best they can possibly be and giving them the opportunity to excel in their varied gifts and talents.
