Meet the Governors

Welcome to the Governors' section.



Lorraine Amitrano - Elected Staff Governor

I have worked at St Peters and St Paul’s since 2013 across all three year groups and bring to the governing body a 25 year career caring for and working with children aged 0-7 years in many different capacities. After 14 years travelling the world as a maternity nurse and nanny, I settled in the local area to raise my own children. Within my roles at the school I have enjoyed working as a SEND support TA, class based TA and HLTA teaching in all 3 year groups which has equipped me with the knowledge and understanding needed to assess the individual needs of all the children in our school community. I believe our children thrive by being taught skills and strategies to access a wealth of knowledge across all areas of the curriculum and my job is to support their journey through the school.

Having an understanding of how our curriculum is delivered, the daily routines, expectations and challenges and how they affect the children and staff will support my contributions to the governing body.

Outdoor learning is a new passion of mine and I’m looking forward to implementing and embedding a creative Forest School with a safe, holistic and hands on link to class learning within our beautiful school site.

Rosie Burgess - Headteacher, Ex-Officio Governor


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.

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 - Vice Chair of Governors

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.

Linda Smith- Associate Member

I’m Linda, 

Until July 2020 I was the Centre Manager of Caterham Children’s Centre, it was a role that I loved and enabled me to get to know the community fairly well. When the Children’s Centre closed I felt very strongly that I wanted to continue to use my skills, experience and knowledge of community needs, so when the role of Family Wellbeing Lead was offered to me I grabbed it with both hands, I hope that my attitude to life encourages others to aspire to their hopes for the future.

My role means that I am able to offer interventions to families at levels 1 + 2 of the Family Resilience threshold to try to stop their difficulties from escalating. Realistically the role I have accepted may take a very different route dependent on the changes that will come in to play as a direct result of COVID, for instance child/adult mental health will be very high on the agenda, as will support for financial difficulties in individual families. My biggest hope is that our families will trust me to work alongside them without fear of judgement.

My personal hopes for the future are to help fill the gaps left by underfunding of necessary family support systems such as CAMHS and SALT. I have seen first-hand the frustrations of families who are trying to access support for their children but blocked by the long waiting lists. I feel that schools offer so much on extremely limited budgets, and we need to find ways to enhance local facilities to enable families to feel supported on their journey.



Kelly Collett- Clerk to Governors

I was previously a governor at a Surrey Junior school for 7 years. Two of which I held the position of Chair of Governors. I have worked in education since 2013. I became a clerk to governors in 2019 and now clerk for 6 schools in total. I also work at Limpsfield CE Infant School in Oxted as a school secretary. I am very passionate about school governance, and it gives me a great sense of accomplishment and satisfaction knowing that I have hopefully made a measurable contribution to a school and how their governance operates.
