Meet our Governors

David Saxon: As someone who's passionate about life-long learning, I volunteered to be a governor as soon as the school was announced.  I've been here three years so far, it's been eye-opening, informative, challenging and, most of all, incredibly fulfilling.  As someone without a formal background in education (I've worked in IT all of my life), it's great to have the opportunity to observe the inner workings of the school environment, participate in the community that the school is fostering and to be able to share my experience in the hope of helping the school (and the wider MAT) to do the very best for the children, parents and staff.


Sara Kightley: I was privileged to be the first Chair of Maltese Road Primary and currently serve as a governor while fulfilling my role of Executive Chair of Trustees of the parent Multi-Academy Trust. Over 30 years’ experience as a primary teacher spanning the state and independent sectors, latterly at deputy head level, currently as a supply teacher. Wider knowledge gained in local government, banking and industry adds to my skill set as does completion of the Chairs of Governors’ Leadership Development Programme. My passion for primary education remains as strong as ever!  


Lucy Lerpiniere: I was delighted to be elected as a parent Governor in 2019 to serve this fantastic primary school. I have 15 years' experience working in client facing professional services and I am pleased to be able to use my skills in finance, project management & communication in giving back to our community and all the children at Maltese Road Primary School. 


Jen Harold: I have been teaching English in secondary schools for the past 17 years and am currently an Assistant Headteacher locally. I was delighted when I was elected as a Parent Governor in Sept 2019.  I strongly believe that all children have the right to the very best education through high quality teaching and an inspirational curriculum.  I feel privileged to be able to offer my skills and experience in supporting this wonderful school.
