GOVERNOR PROFILES

 

Steph Bailey – Headteacher, ex-officio governor

I have been teaching for just over 35 years and am in my fourth year as Headteacher here. I previously had two Deputy Headships in Richmond and in Kingston, the first in a two form and the second in a one form entry primary school. I completed the National Professional Qualification for Headship during the second of these deputy headships. I bring a wealth of experience around children and learning to the Governing Body as well as a growing knowledge of finance, buildings and personnel.

I am a retired engineer, and have lived in Chaldon for almost 30 years. I have been involved with most of the local organisations; previous Chair of the Village Council and Trustee of Chaldon Village Hall, and I am currently President of Caterham and District Horticultural Society, Chair of the Chaldon Fete Committee and volunteer and Trustee of Nightwatch, a homeless charity based in Croydon. I bring management, engineering and building knowledge and expertise to the Governing Body and an enthusiasm for Chaldon, its societies and institutions.

I bring a broad range of skills to the Governing Body.

I have a daughter who started at the school in September 2015. I have lived in Chaldon for 6 years and support the local community.  I am a strong believer in education for children of all abilities and ages. Qualified as a chartered accountant I now work in risk and regulation advising financial service clients on the impact and implementation of banking regulation. I bring experience in finance, strategy and change to the Governing body.

 

Paul Kirkwood – Foundation (PCC) Governor - Vice-Chair of Governors

I joined the governing body in 2015 and as a chartered accountant, I am the Honorary Treasurer to the Governing Body. I live with my family in Caterham on the Hill and my daughter attended the school. My passion is education with the majority of my professional career spent teaching professional accountancy exams to university graduates.

 

Luke Manning - Foundation (PCC) Governor

A local resident for over thirty years, I live in Chaldon with my wife and two young children, who recently enjoyed six fabulous years at the school between them. I became a governor in 2016, specialising in communications and operations, having worked in leadership and consultancy roles with a range of businesses over the past decade.

 

Selene Morris - Foundation (PCC) Governor - Chair of Governors

During the years that my 2 children attended St Peter and St Paul School I was naturally interested progress of the school and was elected parent governor in 2012. During my time as governor I have sat on and chaired the resources committee as well as being the governor responsible for Early Years.  I was elected Chair of Governors in September 2015 and was appointed as a PCC governor in February 2016. During my tenure as Chair I have had to use all the skills that I have gained over my career managing and leading high performing teams within the Civil Service. As part of the Senior Leadership Team I am passionate that every child who enters St Peter and St Paul School is able to realise their full potential in an environment that is caring, compassionate and provides quality education. 

 

Laura Stratton – elected Staff Governor

I have taught at St Peter and St Paul’s for seven years. I am currently teaching Year 2 but I have also taught in Year 1. My co-ordinator roles have included English, RE and PE. I was elected onto the Governing Body in 2015. Having taught across Key Stage 1, I bring knowledge of curriculum, expectations and assessment processes throughout the school.

 

Jackie Thompson – Foundation (PCC) Governor

 I am a mother of 2 children who both attended St Peter and St Paul’s school.  I am a chartered member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development and have over 20 years’ experience in HR.  I became a PCC Governor in 2013 because I wanted to be able to use my skills and experience to help within the community. I bring a wealth of experience in HR matters along with a passion and interest in ensuring that all pupils achieve their full potential.

I work in the Media + PR team at Macmillan Cancer Support in artist liaison. I have spent nearly 20 years in the music and entertainment world working in broadcast, PR and marketing.

I am a Chaldon resident and our 7 year old boy went through the school and loved every minute.
