Meet Our Governors
Peter Mattock - Co-Chair of Governors
I became a parent governor in April 2019. My daughter has been at Richmond Primary School for over 5 years, and has enjoyed her time here very much. As a secondary school head of mathematics, education author, and a maths lead for the East Midlands, I wanted to use my connections and expertise in education to support the work of the school and make sure every child gets the best experience possible.
Clara Smith - Co-Chair of Governors
I joined the Governing Body in July 2019, when I had two grandchildren at the school, in Early Years and Year 4. Seeing how happy they were I decided that I would like to support all the positive work going on. As a retired Secondary teacher of 39 years, my experience covered being Head of Department in English and Drama, Advisory Teacher in Knowsley, Pastoral Leader and Lead Teacher for Assessment For Learning in Hampshire. Because of this I feel able to contribute in many ways and would like to be a part of the school.
I’m a mum of three (14, 4 and 3) and my daughter joined the school in EYFS in September 2021. I’ve been very impressed with how well she settled into life at Richmond Primary School and all the school has to offer their pupils in terms of their learning, well-being and wider curriculum. I put myself forward for the role as parent governor as I wanted to give something back to the school. I have been involved in primary education for the last 20 years and hope I can support the school as a parent governor with the already great job Richmond Primary does.
I joined the governing body, as a staff governor, last year. It's something I've wanted to do for quite some time! All three of my children attended Richmond and thrived here.I've been involved in education for 20 years, 14yrs in SEND and 6yrs in mainstream (at Richmond) I feel it's time to pay back some of the benefits I've reaped, and so I'm supporting the school through the governing body.
