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.

Kevin Martin

As a parent I was drawn to Littleton C of E School due to its clear Christian character and learning culture. Both my children were enriched by the growth mindset vision and emanates from Mrs Barton and her excellent team. As a governor I am committed to support that continued vision to see all our children flourish and develop to their very best both as learners and people. Working within the public sector I recognise the need for all our support, teachers, parents and community alike to see Littleton School truly build on its previous success. I strongly believe that the learning to learn culture and Christian ethos are a strong partnership to allow our Children to be all they can be. I am delighted to be part of that support team to deliver the very best for our children. 

 

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.

Blair Poland 

My journey with Littleton started when I arrived for my first teaching placement back in 2012. I knew instantly that this was somewhere I wanted to work as the vision and values really resonated with the type of teacher I wanted to be. Fortunately for me an opportunity arose to be the first teacher in our Littleton Explorers Nursery back in 2016 and I have not looked back since. 

In my time here at Littleton I have been supported by the Governors and Mrs Barton to complete my Postgraduate Certificate in Special Education Needs enabling me to become Assistant SENDCo. I am passionate about all the children being given the opportunity to reach their potential and make as much progress as possible. 

I have been the staff governor for 4 years and this role has really helped to broaden my understanding of the strategic challenges schools face behind the scenes. This combined with my current role as Interim Assistant Headteacher gives me the opportunity to positively impact the school at a number of strategic levels. 

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.

 Rebecca Adamson 

I currently have two children at Littleton with my third hopefully due to start Reception in September.

Before having my children, I was an infant school teacher working at, what was then, Southville Infant and Nursery school, a 3 form entry infant school in Feltham. I started at the school as an NQT in 2006 and by my third year of teaching had become a member of the Senior Management Team as Year Leader and Literacy Subject Lead. While teaching, I studied to gain a Post Graduate Certificate in Leadership and Management, a Post Graduate Diploma in Early Years Education and an MA in Education. I was member of the governing body at Southville from 2008 until their amalgamation to a through primary in 2018.

After having my own children, I made the decision to stay at home with them. For the last 2 years I have been working part time as a Registered Childminder until my youngest starts school.

I am very keen to give something back to the school and to be able to support the wonderful learning ethos, and the staff who provide it, at Littleton. I feel extremely fortunate to have been given the opportunity to be a governor and look forward to being able to use the knowledge, experience and skills I have to support this amazing school.
