Meet the Governors

Welcome to the Governors' section!

The Governing Body at St Luke’s is currently made up of 10 people who come from all walks of life and represent different groups of people who have an interest in the school. An explanation of the different categories of governors is given below.

Parent Governors
Elected by members of the parent community. You must be the legal parent or guardian of a child under the age of 16 in full-time education. Often parent vacancies are filled by nomination from within the parental community of the school. On the rare occasion when this does not happen, the wider parental community can be approached. Our Governing Body currently has one parent governor. Mr Hauxwell (Appointed 16th March 2017 until 15th March 2021) is the Parent Governor at St. Luke's.  We currently have a vacancy for one parent governor.
Staff Governors
Elected by all staff from within the teaching or non-teaching element of the school staff. This category includes teachers, teaching assistants, caretaking and cleaning staff, secretarial and administration, mid-day supervision and catering staff. The Staff category of our School is two – this category includes the Headteacher, Mrs Dunn. (Appointed 1st January 2009)  The other teaching representative is Mrs Arnold. (Appointed 21st June 2016 until 20th June 2020 ) 
Local Authority Governors 
These are representatives for the Local Authority. They are usually elected members of the council or County Council.  We currently have a vacancy for one LA governor at St. Luke's.

Foundation Governors

These members represent the Diocese and are appointed through St Luke’s Church. We currently have six foundation governors on the Governing Body and they are appointed to preserve and develop the religious character of the school.  The current Chair of Governors, Mr Beckett (Re-appointed 11th July 2013 until 10th July 2017), is a foundation governor. Mr Stout (Appointed 17th December 2015 until 16th December 2019), Mrs Stephens (Appointed 10th December 2014 , reappointed  until 15th July 2023) and Mr Croucher (Appointed 23rd September 2016 until 22nd September 2020)are our Foundation Governors. Mr Stout is also the Vice-Chair of the Governing Body. We currently have vacancies for two foundation governors.


Associate Member

We currently have Mr Connor as an Associate Member of the Governing Body. (Appointed 30th November 2015 until 29th November 2019)

Mr. P.Beckett


I work as a Mathematician at The King's School Grantham, a Boys Grammar School in Lincolnshire. My wife Cathy is head of Special needs at a local school. My children Jonathan (23) and Rosie (21) attended St. Luke’s for their early education before transferring to Worksop College where they were both academic scholars. They both have fond memories of St. Luke’s and are sure that the excellent grounding and their thirst for knowledge was begun at St. Luke’s. Jonathan is now a research chemist for the welcome trust having graduated in Chemistry from Hertford College Oxford. Rosie is at New College Oxford studying Engineering.


Mr.J. Stout


I moved to the area in 2010 as a result of relocating with my job for Boots UK. I wanted to be involved in the school as my son started attending on our arrival in the village. I am passionate about ensuring my children receive the best education they can and am pleased to have the opportunity to assist the teachers and staff at the school to provide this for all pupils.
