Our Governing Body

My name is Jackie Boardman. I recently retired from teaching after almost forty years, having spent the last twenty-two years at Scotts in various teaching roles. I am looking forward to being able to continue to support the education of the children at Scotts.

As a teacher and a parent, I believe it is important that children experience a varied curriculum and develop a wider knowledge of the world around them. I have a passionate interest in Global Learning and am continuing to foster links with schools in other countries. 

I also believe that all pupils should have a voice and should be encouraged to be part of a democratic process, where they are able to contribute ideas and make decisions about themselves and their school community.


My name is Kerry Course. I am parent of two children in the school who are happy and enthusiastic about learning.  As an experienced secondary school teacher I am actively interested in education.  I look forward to working with staff and parents in continuing to keep the high standards already established at Scotts.

My name is Charlotte Chamberlin and I am a Local Authority Governor. Following the completion of my Mathematics and Sport Science degree from Loughborough University, I am currently working as a Project Manager in the banking industry. I decided to become a governor to give something back to the local community as well as continuing my interests for the education system. I am looking forward to assisting with making key decisions to ensure Scotts Primary School continues to maintain such high standards.


My name is Dan Window and I am a parent governor appointed in spring 2016. I have two children at the school and hopefully a third starting in 2017. I have a professional background in sports administration and law. I am looking to maintain the school's excellent reputation, but want to retain the current community feel.
