Governors

Chair - Mrs S Potter (Foundation Governor)

As Chair of Governors my aim is to support the staff of St Andrews school to enable all our children to be the very best version of themselves. As a foundation governor my aim is to promote the Christian ethos of the school. My own background is in business management, I worked for BT for over 30 years. So, I use my business management skills and experience to support the school. I am mum to 4 children, 2 grown up and left home, 1 in university and 1 in secondary school.

Vice Chair - Mr J Cope (Foundation Governor)

I was treasurer of Airedale Health Authority until 1993. In addition to my work as an accountant I have been a Samaritan in York, a prison visitor in Hull maximum security prison and locally involved with a number of charities.

In 1999 I was the chair of the Bradford MDC planning committee that approved the Keighley bus station.

Since a small boy I have supported Middlesbrough Football Club and at present watch Halifax Town.

Rev J Long (Foundation Governor)

As a Foundation Governor I see my role as supporting staff to provide the best education possible for all pupils, and help equip them for life. My background is banking and corporate finance, where I spent over 30 years, before taking early retirement and becoming a Church of England minister in Keighley. I have also been involved in a number of charitable organisations usually focussing on the financial aspects. This background has been invaluable in enabling me to monitor the financial aspects of KSA.

I was very pleased to be able to join the KSA governing team as Teacher Governor in September 2018. I have been teaching for nearly twenty years and have taught across the entire primary age range. KSA is such an exciting community to be a part of and I am delighted to have the opportunity to contribute towards the continued growth and success of the school.
