Our Governors

Maggie Hartley

21/09/2015 – 20/09/2019

Chair of Governors

I became a governor at Wootton Community Primary School in September 2015 and in January 2016 I was elected Chair of Governors. I taught English as a Foreign Language in Paris, Cairo, London and Cambridge before teaching in five primary schools in Oxfordshire as an Advanced Skills Teacher and where I also worked as an advisor for the Equality and Diversity Service. I am also a qualified SENCo. I work closely with the team to ensure the very best education for all our pupils.

Phil Salmon


Vice Chair of Governors

I was elected parent governor at Wootton in 2012 and I am now the Local Authority governor. My three children have been taught at the school. I am a Town Planning Consultant and have run my own business since 2013. I worked in Local Government for 24 years, as a planner, before then. I bring extensive experience of public sector resource management to the Board of Governors and am keen to see all assets used effectively and efficiently to the benefit of the school and the children.

Becki Kujabi


Co-opted Governor

I work at Little Herons Pre-school which is on the same grounds as Wootton Community Primary School where I have worked for nearly 20 years and lived in the village for the same amount of time. My daughter attended the school over 15 years ago, so over the years I have seen many children grow up into delightful young people and feel this is in part due to Wootton Primary School and the community feel and values it promotes.

Charlotte MacDonald


Staff Governor

My name is Charlotte MacDonald and I became a Staff Governor in January 2017. I studied Level 3 Childcare and Education at the Isle of Wight college before starting at Wootton Community Primary School in 2015 as a Level 2 Business Admin Apprentice. I now run the office as Administrative Officer. I have an interest in seeing children develop as individuals and thoroughly enjoy taking an active part on the governing body.

Mark McCarthy


Co-opted Governor

I became a co-opted governor at the school in September 2015 with a child currently at the school. I have been a Firefighter with a mainland Fire and Rescue Service for the last 13 years and previously worked at GKN.

Catherine Pye

Clerk to the Governing Body

I have been Clerk to the Governors at Wootton Community Primary School since November 2013. The purpose of the clerk’s role is to:

• Provide advice to the governing body on governance, constitutional and procedural matters.
• Provide effective administrative support to the governing body and its committees.
• Ensure the governing body is properly constituted.
• Manage information effectively in accordance with legal requirements.
