Governor Profiles

The following short profiles of the governing body of Littleton C of E Infant School will hopefully provide an insight into everyone’s background and an indication of the diverse skills and experiences we collectively represent.

Mrs Rachel Barton, in her capacity as headteacher, is also a member of the governing body.

Rachel Elizabeth Barton

Following graduation from Surrey University in 1993, I began my teaching career in the London Borough of Havering. In 1995 I married and moved to Surrey and I took up my first teaching post in the county at Laleham Primary School.

In 1997 I became the Senior Teacher/Deputy Head at Ongar Place Infant School. In 2008 Ongar Place was part of a local review of schools and it became a one form entry primary school. I was part of the Senior Leadership Team that supported the headteacher to manage the transition from infant to primary status.

In 2004 I took a career break for two years to be at home with my young family and during this time studied for a Masters in Education.

I am passionate about all things educational and in particular the coaching and development of staff and pupils to become ‘the best they can be’. I am incredibly proud to be the headteacher of such a vibrant and aspirational learning community.

Paul Alexander

I've been an active member of the school community in one form or another for the last 8 years since my eldest child joined Swans class. I've been a governor for the last 4 years and from 2012 - 2017 I became chair of governors. Having initially been a parent governor I became an LDBS (London Diocesan Board of Schools) governor in August 2013.

I've worked in the Financial Services sector for over 20 years and hold a Senior Management position in the field of Risk Management within a well known UK Bank. 

Sarah Louise Newell Little

I have lived locally for 30 years. My career was in Administration and Logistics and I am now retired.

I was appointed as a foundation governor by the PCC of St. Mary Magdalene Church in 2008. I became Link governor shortly afterwards. I am presently Secretary to the PCC and have previously served as Churchwarden. I am a member of the Resources, Admissions & Pay Policy Committees.  

Dawn Hare

As a parent of two children at Littleton I have a keen interest in the progress of the school and contributing to ensuring our children have the best learning environment available.  Academic excellence is something about which I am passionate and I would like to support the school to continue to achieve this, along with assisting in ensuring the school maintains its focus on our children having a happy, stimulating learning environment.  
I work as a child protection solicitor and, therefore, have an understanding of the impact that teachers and the school can have in helping children who are struggling to achieve their full potential.  I believe that every child should have the opportunity to achieve their full potential in life and a rich learning environment with great teachers and support staff, such as those at Littleton, provides the perfect stepping stone. 
I look forward to being involved and providing all the support I can to the school.

Trilby Lacey

I passionately believe that all children deserve the best educational experience possible. To this end, I joined the Governing Body in November 2008 as a Parent Governor shortly after my daughter joined the school. I continue to serve on the Governing Body now that both my daughter and younger son have finished their time at Littleton. In July 2000 I took a step away from a job in industry and became a primary school teacher. I have been teaching in Sunbury and Ashford since that time and have also worked as an examiner of Key Stage 2 SATs for Edexcel. I strive to use my educational experience and parental perspective to support the school community in providing the quality education to which our children are entitled. I chair the Teaching & Learning Committee of the Governing Body.

Timothy Mark Rose

I began work with the school when I became vicar of St Mary Magdalene Littleton in May 2013. Prior to getting ordained I worked for nine years in the charity sector with East to West and then for six years on the staff of St Saviours church in Sunbury. Whilst working for East to West I spent a great deal of time working in Secondary schools and more latterly with primary and infant schools across the Spelthorne area.

Richard Walsh

I have lived in Shepperton over thirty five years and have spent eight of those years (1983 – 1991) as a Councillor on Spelthorne Borough Council. During that period I have been a governor of Saxon and Thamesmead School serving on various sub-committees.

I have a strong involvement in the community, having been a helper with the scouts, a member of the Shepperton & Sunbury Rotary Club, and Chairman of Home-Start Spelthorne. I also attend St. Nicholas Church and have been a member of the PCC. I was elected Surrey County Councillor for the area nine years ago and have been a cabinet member for communities and now work closely with the council's youth service. I have been greatly impressed with the way the school teaches the children which is very close to my heart and I wanted to be part of taking the school forward.

Barbara Elizabeth Giles

I was Treasurer to the PTA before becoming Treasurer to the Governors Fund. I then became a Foundation Governor.  I have been very involved with the school over a long period of time, working with a child with Special Needs, then as Class Room Assistant and then an Admin Assistant on a part time basis.

Jonathan Baker (PCC Governor)

I have lived in Shepperton most of my life, having attended Littleton School myself as a child. I therefore have a very close personal link with the school as well as St Mary Magdalene Church. I am very proud to return to the school as a PCC governor having originally been appointed in September 2014. This was at the same time that my daughter started her own learning journey at our fantastic school. I was re-appointed in 2018 and I am also now a member of the Resources and Admissions Committee. I have worked in the travel and hotel industry for over 20 years and work in Revenue Management at a large hotel chain based out of Heathrow.
