The governing body, together with the headteacher, sets the future direction for the school and decides how the school’s budget should be managed. It makes decisions on matters such as self-evaluation, performance targets, school policies, admissions and the school’s development plan.

I have been the Headteacher at Puttenham CofE Infant School since September 2017. It is a privilege to be the Head of this lovely, village school. Prior to this I taught at Chilworth Infant School and St Edmund’s Primary School. I have been teaching for many years mainly in Reception or KS1 classes.
When I am not at school I enjoy reading, tennis and singing! I am a member of the Royal Surrey Choir. We perform at least twice a year at Holy Trinity Church in aid of The Fountain Centre at the hospital.
I have been a Puttenham parent since September 2013, a parent governor since February 2016 and Chair of Governors from September 2018.
The youngest of my three children is a Year 1 Rabbit and the older two are now at Waverley Abbey.
In addition to my full-time role of ‘mum’, I also work part-time as an accountant and tax specialist.
I can often be found at Forest School on Friday mornings.
I have lived in Puttenham for over 10 years and am a committed member of the community, supporting many causes throughout the village. I have been a governor for 3 years and am a former parent at the school. I recently stepped down as the Chair of the governing body, having held the position for the past 2 years.
I am an ex-Primary School teacher whose two daughters have both attended Puttenham School in recent years. I was actively involved in the PSA while I was at the school, so am currently the Governor / PSA link and am also the governor responsible for Literacy. I live in the village very close to the school.
I am churchwarden of the parish and on the parochial church council. I am one of the foundation governors.
I am a Parent Governor of the school. My son William in in Otters, Year 2 and I have a 4 year old son at home. Maths is my subject area within the governing body, and I am a Chartered Accountant by training.
I’m Adam Calver, one of the foundation governors. I’ve lived in Puttenham for 7 years with my wife Caroline (who teaches at school) and daughters Betsy (who has been a pupil at Puttenham) and Hettie (who hopefully will be a pupil in the future!) I work in finance, and am a chartered management accountant by trade. As a governor, I have a particular focus on the resources and head teacher review committees.
I live locally with my husband Will and our two children, Alice and Archie. I have 20 years teaching experience with a specialism in the Visual Arts. At Puttenham my area to oversee is the Early Years.
