We are proud to have a strong and committed governing body.
Parents, teachers and members of the community make up this supportive team.
The Governing Body supports school improvement by:
taking a largely strategic role in the running of the school;
acting as a critical friend to the school;
ensuring accountability of the governing body to the parents and of the Headteacher to the governing body.
Margaret Greeves (Local Authority Governor, 2021) has 35 years of experience at working in and with museums, large and small. She is committed to early years education, with a special interest in learning through the creative arts.
James Martin has been a Harston resident for over 20 years. He is a Chartered Accountant and works for TTP Group, based in Melbourn. James joined the governing body in December 2023 and is a member of the Finance Committee.
Deidre Mallabone (Parent Governor) has been a secondary school Biology teacher for the last 14 years. Her daughter recently started at Harston and Newton Primary School, which prompted her to become more involved in the local community as a Parent Governor. She is interested in Science education, and learning outside of the classroom on trips and visits.
Catherine Vagh (Co-opted Governor) has more than 15 years experience in teaching across the Primary age range. She has worked in the state and independent sectors in Cambridgeshire. Catherine has a particular interest in pedagogy and how technology can enhance learning.
