Governor Profiles

Steve Noble

I live in Tameside and have been Chair of the Governing Body at Ravensfield Primary School since 2013. I spent all of my career teaching in primary schools (mostly in Tameside) and then working for the local authority school improvement service. I have also worked as an Ofsted inspector. Now that I am (mostly) retired, I am keen to use my experience to help Ravensfield become an outstanding school.

I originally joined Ravensfield Primary School as a Governor in 2007 when it was "born". My children have since joined the school and are extremely proud to be pupils here. When I became a parent, my interest shifted towards working in an environment where I can contribute to the achievement and wellbeing of children and I now work full-time in a Manchester school office, having recently gained my Diploma in School Business Management.

My 2 children both attend Ravensfield Primary in Year 2 and Year 5 and I feel that it is important to be involved in, understand and contribute to the school where my children are being educated.
I am proud to be a Governor and will support the school to be the very best, provide a caring safe atmosphere in which children are respected and given an environment in which they can thrive as individuals.

I have 2 children, one at Hyde Community College and one at Ravensfield in year 5.

I joined the Governing Body in 2010 as I wanted to make some contribution to the wellbeing of the school. 

I have had the opportunity to attend training courses to support my role, and help me understand how the education system works.

I enjoy being able to contribute to the school in promoting and maintaining excellent standards of teaching, supporting the staff and getting to know the children. We are on a journey for Ravensfield to become an outstanding school.

Being a governor is a very rewarding position and I am proud to be part of Ravensfield.
