GOVERNOR PROFILES

 

Lorraine Amitrano - elected Staff Governor

[Awaiting text]

 

Graham Baker - Foundation (PCC) Governor

I have lived in Chaldon since 2008. I have a daughter who started at the school in September 2018. I run my own management consultancy which provides support and training to not-for-profit organisations to help them improve what they do and how they do it. I also work with national and international bodies to define best practice standards and accreditation processes. i was an OFSTeD lay inspector for three years and through this gained an understanding of what an excellent school looks and feels like. In my spare time I am involved extensively in the local community. I am the former Chair of Chaldon Village Council and present Chair of the Chaldon Village Fete Committee.

Helen Burnett – Foundation (SDBE) Governor

I joined the Chaldon Village Community in June 2016 when I took up my post as Curate to St Peter and St Paul’s Chaldon and St Luke’s Whyteleafe. Prior to my training for ordination I home educated my four sons and I am passionate about equality of access to education and nurturing the natural curiosity of the child. My first career was in education and I have taught in the early years sector, primary and secondary schools and spent two years working with severely emotionally disturbed children in a residential setting. I value the strong links between the church and the school in Chaldon and intend to do all I can to foster that relationship.

 

Anne Hinsley - Foundation (PCC) Governor

I started my career as a writer and editor working on magazines, newsletters and books before moving into publishing product development ad eventually specialising in online subscription services. Research is a particular strength of mine. I have worked in consumer and B2B publishing, as well as government communications, and now help my husband run a web consultancy focusing on the digital workplace. I have two children, one of whom goes to St Peter & St Paul's School.

 

Alice Meunier - elected Parent Governor

I am a parent governor and my son joined the school in September 2017. I bring experience of teaching, learning, research and understanding data to the Governing Body. From 2004-2008 I worked as a researcher for universities and central government in policy areas related to education, children and families. I qualified as a primary school teacher in 2009 and have worked across KS1 and KS2. I am keen to support the school in providing a well-rounded education for all children, within a nurturing environment.

 

Bob Milton - Foundation (PCC) Governor

I am a retired Metropolitan Police Service Commander and the Tandridge District Councillor for the ward of Chaldon.  I have provided security advice and training to governments across the globe and held the role of distinguished professor at Bay Path University, Massachusetts, USA with a specific role in supporting women returning to education. I was an advisor to the US Department of Homeland Security of Countering Violent Extremism. I frequently give media interviews for UK and and international news agencies on a variety of policing and security issues. 

I moved to Chaldon over 5 years ago and love living in the Village.  I was chair of Chaldon Village Council, remain an active member of the Chaldon Fete Committee and I am a trustee of Chaldon Village Hall. I am passionate about education and want to do all I can to ensure that our village school provides an outstanding education for all its pupils, fully supports parents and is an enjoyable and stimulating place to work.

 

Richard Pedrick - Elected Parent Governor

I grew up on the border of Chaldon and Caterham and after moving to London for several years, post university, I came home so that my own children would have the great benefit of growing up in our wonderful and unique community. My family have lived in Chaldon and Caterham for more than 65 years, my uncle even attended the old infant school in Chaldon 60 years ago.

I completed my bachelor’s degree in Mathematics in 2007 and have been working within the financial markets industry since then. I currently ply my trade at a quantitative investment management company in Mayfair. I hope to use my experience to help the school, in what are particularly trying financial times for the whole education sector.

My eldest child joined this school in 2018 and is flourishing, my youngest will hopefully follow suit in 2020. These early years are fundamental for our children; I believe that one of the most important things we can do at this stage, is to instil a love of learning that will, God willing, stick with each of them throughout their school years and well into adulthood.

 

Victoria Stubbs - Foundation - SDBE Governor

I am invested in the school and the happiness, security and stability it provides for its children. As the SDBE Governor, I recognise that the essence of the school is deeply rooted within its Church of England affiliations. The strong community atmosphere that the school radiates, is something that needs to be preserved and nourished. My son started the school in 2016 and my daughter joined in 2018. I hope for my youngest to follow suit eventually too. I have a degree in English & Media and currently work with my husband, remote managing a franchise. I am a strong communicator and hope to bring new ideas and encouragement to the Governing body.

 

Peter Taylor - Local Authority Governor

I was a Chaldon resident from the mid 1990s until 2017 when I moved to Godstone. However, I still feel a great affinity to Chaldon. I was Treasurer (and barman!) for Chaldon Amateur Dramatic Society for many years and helped with the props for several productions. When my partner passed away in 2014, I was asked if I would like to take her place on the Chaldon Fete Committee. I was so pleased to be able to ‘fill her shoes’ and grasped the opportunity without hesitation. I still look forward to contributing to this successful and long running local event. My career was spent in the construction industry, as a Quantity Surveyor and, later, as an Estimator and Buyer. I have been Secretary of a Crawley-based sub aqua club since 1976 and Treasurer since 1990. In my role as a School Governor, I aim to contribute to the success of the school and its essential place in village life.

 

Lisa Thurston – Clerk to Governors

I have been clerking for governing bodies since 2012 and am currently Clerk for three schools in Surrey. I have a background of working in finance and admin and served as a governor at my local primary school from 2003 - 2019, including five years as  Chair of Governors. I am also a Christian. I bring strong organisational skills and a wealth of knowledge of school governance in maintained schools, academies and multi academy trusts to this varied, interesting, busy and enjoyable role.
