Mr J Iveson – Chair of Governors

I have been a Governor at Three Lane Academy for about 15 Years and Chair of Governors for about 7 Years.  I am on the following committees:- Standards, Finance & Personnel and Health & Safety.  I live in Castleford and I am married with 2 sons who both attended Three Lane Ends. 

As a Governor I have attended  a number of courses and this has given me the knowledge and understanding to fulfil my role.  I believe all children deserve a high standard of education and through my role I aim to ensure that all the children achieve their full potential and develop into confident well rounded individuals.

Mr S Johnson – Vice Chair of Governors

Its been quite a few years since I became a governor and whilst in post I've seen three of my children pass through school; two are now at Castleford Academy and one at New College Pontefract. In my day to day job I'm a safety adviser; in my spare time I'm a cub scout leader and an instructor at a  local karate club, at school I'm the vice chair of the governing body, the chair of the personal and finance committee and a member of the standards committee.  I joined the governing body knowing little about governorship, but keen to add some value, I eagerly threw myself into the role, attended all the training that I could, and soon found myself able to a offer positive contribution to meetings and many school improvement initiatives. During my governorship I've learned many new skills; many of which I have found useful in my day job, but most of all I have developed a great deal of respect for the school staff through understanding the challenges they face whilst trying to provide our children with a quality education. Looking back over my years of service, I know that my input has made a difference and its that knowledge that drives me to continue in the role. I encourage everyone who cares about our childrens' futures to give it a go!

Mrs L Ellis-Charlesworth – Associated Governor

Mr Shaun Asprey – Parent Governor

 Mrs C Easton – Parent Governor

I became a Parent Governor in 2009 whilst my two children attended Three Lane Ends Academy. I wanted to be a Governor to have an understanding of school life and to support the Headteacher and staff in providing the best possible education for our children. I also wanted to bring a parents point of view to the table during Governor meetings. I am the Child Protection Governor and the Citizenship and PHSE curriculum Governor. I also work in the school office and have done so for almost 10 years. I feel I am approachable and I am always willing to listen and act upon parents views on their behalf. The most enjoyable part about being a Governor is without a doubt meeting the children and parents and observing everyday school activities. When I am not at work or being a Governor I love spending time with my children and I am also a chaperone for a local theatre/dance studio.
