There are no committees; the Governors meet as a Full Governing Body at each meeting six times per year.

Who are we and what do we do? 

We are a team of people (comprised of staff, parents and community representatives) who work closely with the Head Teacher to make key decisions vital to the successful running of the School. We play an important role in improving standards throughout the School and agree the School's budget. In other words, it is a meaningful role - that we don't take lightly.

How can we be contacted? 

Governors can be contacted through the School Office and one of them is a parent of a pupil who can often  befound around the School Entrance at the beginning or end of the day. If you have any queries, do ask.

Tim Rising - Chair of Governors

I have been a Parent Governor and am now the Chair of Governors since November 2010. My interest in education started when I taught science in a rural school in Malawi in 1999 to 2000 through Voluntary Service Overseas.

I work for Camden Council as a procurement manager where I am responsible for buying social care services for vulnerable adults and for children. In October 2012 I became the Chair of the Resources Committee which in particular has responsibility for school budgets and financing. I look forward to continuing to work alongside the team of Governors and staff to keep St Peter's a happy place to learn and work.

Liam Bonthrone - Vice Chair

I have been a governor at St Peter’s since 2013 when my daughter was in Reception.  I started out as a parent governor and am now a co-opted governor and the vice-chair.  When I joined, it was in response to a call from the governing body looking for new governors with experience of building and construction.  The school was about to have the office extension built  and had assessed that they had a shortage of experience in this area.  This was a lucky way in for me, because the governing body wouldn’t have chosen me for my educational experience!

Being a member of the governing body of St Peter’s is hugely rewarding, especially for a school for which my daughter has such fond memories.  In my time as a governor at St Peter’s, I have been involved in two major building projects, helped the school deal with contractors, been through an Ofsted inspection (came out good, now aiming for outstanding) and dressed up as Santa three times at the Christmas Fair.  More importantly, I have also learnt a lot about school governance, and have a better knowledge of the education system and the challenges that schools face which I hope will enable me to ask the questions and make the decisions that will make our children’s lives better.

Lawrence McVeigh

Lawrence has been a valued member of the Governing Body for 19 years, 10 of which he served as Chair of Governors. His loyalty to St. Peter’s has never wavered and he has given many hours and dedication to the school during his time with us over the years.

Eunice McMillan

I was appointed a Community Governor in 2015. I have two grown up sons who were educated in two local schools, and my husband and I have both retired from working lives associated with the NHS. 
I believe that all children have the right to the best education possible and that they should feel secure and valued. I will strive to ensure that the pupils attending this school will continue to be equipped with the tools to become well balanced, contributing members of society, capable of achieving their full potential.

France Bryce

Frances children both attended St Peter's Infants where she became a volunteer and an active member of the PTA. During her children's time here, she became a Governor.

Jo Worrall

My own children came to St Peter's 20 years ago and I soon started volunteering in school and became an active member of the PTA. I joined the school team several years later as a Teaching Assistant, before being encouraged to train as a teacher. The ethos of this nurturing small school and the positive impact it had on all three of my children during (and after) their time here inspired me to return to St Peter's several years ago. I am proud to work here now as Deputy Head Teacher. I believe that, as a Governor, I have a unique view and can see the "whole picture". ​
