Governance Documents & Details Page


Claire Peterson

Mom to two pupils at Raddlebarn Primary School, I have been a parent governor since 2022. I’m passionate about the school, its’ wider community of pupils, staff and families and spent 2022-23 as the Treasurer of the Friends of Raddlebarn School. I have a background in finance and the audit of internal controls, gained in a ‘Big 4’ accountancy practice and in governance, gained within the COO function of a global investment bank. I believe that an effective governance function can help the school achieve the best outcomes for pupils.

Jimmy Haarhoff

I currently manage the wraparound care setting at Raddlebarn. I have over 7 years experience working with children within the community and school settings by providing wrap-around care, sporting activities, and holiday clubs. I have a passion for health and well being and I believe every child has the right to get active and live a healthy lifestyle. Being a governor will give me the chance to make a real difference to young people and give something back to the local community using the skills and knowledge that I have gained over the years.

Sally Harding

I have two children currently attending Raddlebarn. I have always been impressed with the level of care and dedication the school shows to the pupils. It’s a privilege to be elected as a parent governor and to be given the opportunity to support the school staff. My daughter has additional needs, therefore, I am particularly keen to support our pupils who may find educational settings challenging.

Clair Felton

I am a parent governor for the school. I bring a wealth of political experience that compliments the skillset of the governing body. I have a very strong background in running small businesses, financial matters, and computing as well being a mother. I believe in a fair society where equality of opportunity is available to all.

Lewis Chatterley

I am a parent Governor and I currently have one child at the school. I think Raddlebarn is great, and I was extremely pleased to be appointed as a parent Governor. The staff are dedicated, welcoming and really care about the children, and I wanted to be a part of that and help build on the strong foundations that are already in place at Raddlebarn.
I have a background in regulation, and I am currently responsible for the regulation of the legal profession. I live in the local community and Raddlebarn is a big part of that community, of which I want to be involved.
I am keen to ensure that staff are supported to provide a high level of education in an environment that brings the best out of all of the children at Raddlebarn.
