LaReo Riviere

LaReo Riviere

Chair of Proprietorial Body

LaReo Riviere is both our Proprietorial Body’s chair and our Safeguarding Lead. He is a senior Child Protection Social Worker, with significant expertise in the field of Mental Health, which makes him an invaluable guide and leader to the management of SAFE.

LaReo is uncompromising in matters of safeguarding, and works hard to help SAFE’s management create and maintain a culture in which safeguarding is key. He is also instrumental in ensuring that any developments within SAFE do not compromise the ethos of the school in any way.

Marion Leaver

Marion Leaver

Secretary and Treasurer

A former member of the W.R.N.S., Marion has worked as a Secretary and Office Manager, and in a variety of other administrative roles in London whilst bringing up her family.  She has also worked with the Association of Wrens and The Royal British Legion, which has given her an insight into hardship and comradeship and taught her to be non-judgemental and patient.  All this experience has meant that, although she is now officially “retired”, she is extremely well-placed to support S.A.F.E. with the day-to-day running of the charity.  

Marion is also a caseworker for SSAFA (charity for service people and their families) and Secretary of the Association of Wrens (Bromley Informal Group).

What does the Proprietorial Body do?

SAFE’s Proprietorial Body is responsible for overseeing the management of the school. They meet monthly, and scrutinise everything from staffing, curriculum and attendance, to safeguarding, health and safety and finance.

Individual members of the proprietorial body visit SAFE during the school day regularly, to ensure they know how the school functions on a day to day basis, and to get the views of individual students and staff.
