Mr Marcel Devereux

I am an ex pupil and am married with two daughters, both who have gone through both schools from 2004 - 2014 and really enjoyed their times here.
They have gone on to Burnham Grammar and St Bernard's Grammar schools.

I started as a Governor in the infant school in 2006 and have been involved in the finance committees ever since starting the role.

Mrs Shoard

School Business Manager, Associate Governor

With a background in finance & mortgages, I joined Our Lady of Peace Infant & Nursery School in 2004 as the Bursar. I worked across both the Infant & Juniors Schools over the years until I project managed the amalgamation of the two schools to become one primary
I have successfully completed the Certificate in School Business Management (CSBM) in 2008, the Diploma in School Business Management (DSBM) in 2012 and I am AAT qualified. I am a member of the Senior Leadership Team and responsible for the daily operational management of Finance, Human Resources, Premises and Health & Safety.
Being an ex-pupil and a mother of 3 sons who attended the school, I am passionate about the welfare of our staff, pupils and the future of our school. Using my skills, knowledge and expertise I strive to achieve best value and contribute towards a learning environment which is warm, exciting and motivational.

Mrs Amy Day

I am married with two children who attend Our Lady of Peace . I am a qualified counsellor working in a Primary and Secondary school. Prior to that I was a member of the Royal Air Force and worked in air traffic control before leaving to work in a private company operating and managing private jets.

I joined the board of governors in 2017 as I want to play an active part in supporting our school to help our children achieve their full potential.

Mrs Holden

Headteacher, Associate Member

I have 15 years of working in education. I have experience of both K.S.1. and K.S.2.

In 2012 I completed a Masters Degree in Education and am very much interested in academic research.

I am passionate about ensuring that each child achieves their full academic potential as well as helping to guide them on their own spiritual journey.

Mrs Nash

Foundation Governor

I joined the governing body in March 2018 as a parent governor. I have two children in the school, and as a former Our Lady of Peace pupil myself, I wanted to play an active role in supporting our school in achieving its vision and aims for continued success and improvement.
I have worked as an Educational Researcher for the last 18 years, evaluating the impact of educational policies across primary and secondary schools, and I have a good understanding of the ways that school work and the challenges they face. I am passionate about education, and believe that primary schools should inspire a love of learning within all children, as well as challenge them to fulfil their potential.

I am a proud single Mom with an amazing daughter, who is fortunate to be a part of Our Lady of Peace Primary School. This year, I am honoured to be appointed as a School Governor and just like every parent at Our Lady of Peace Primary School, I want the best for my child hence I can always bring a parents perspective to every meeting. I feel it is important that every child at Our Lady of Peace Primary School is happy, safe, confident and strive to become the very best they can be. I strongly feel that as parents we need to support the school in its journey to become outstanding. I bring lots of experience and I am positive these experiences can help the school grow to their full potential.
