Chair of Governors

Hello - I'm Lesley Boughton, and Chair of Governors at Milton. I'm passionate about life long learning and development, so was delighted when invited to become a Co-opted Governor at Milton School. I am a Management Development Trainer and Consultant specialising in Early Years and Further Education - so Milton was a lovely opportunity to be involved with a sector of education I'd had little experience in, since leaving Teacher Training College in 19 nort blob!
I enjoy quizzes, cooking, swimming, reading, spending time with my step granddaughters - and am looking forward to holidays with my partner Mike again.
I love my role and am extremely proud of the students and staff at Milton for the amazing things they achieve every day.

Designated Governor

I was born in Carlisle where I developed a passion for PE and History. In my early teens I then moved to Dartford College of Physical Education to undertake my teacher training qualification.
Having worked in the Education sector for over thirty years in various capacities at a Middle and Senior Level I have gained a wide breadth of experience and knowledge. I have undertaken various roles at Milton School including Head of Upper School, Year 11 Class Teacher and Vice Principal. Now as Head of School at Milton I am excited to have the opportunity to lead the school through the next phase of its continuing development. Our pupils are at the centre of all of our decision making and make Milton the fantastic school that it is.
I look forward to seeing you in school and working together to support our young people as they prepare for adult life.

Governor

I’m a wife, a mum of 3, a Beaver scout leader plus many other things. My kids are my main focus in life. My oldest has changed so much over the last year I wanted to reflect the person he is now & not who he was. He's 17 now & currently at college studying to be a policeman in the K9 unit. He's come so far & I'm very proud of him. I also have a 14 year old boy who’s hyperactive & a 10 year old girl with special needs who attends the school. All my kids are amazing people & I wouldn’t change them for the world. I love music & I love to travel whenever I can. I really enjoy being in the outdoors and camping but still just as happy with a good book or buried in some craft or another. I never thought about being a Parent Governor till I was asked if I wanted to apply. After I read all the paperwork I knew I wanted to help the school in any way I can. I love to meet new people so if anyone sees me has a question about me or the role I play at school I don’t mind a chat

What We Do

The governors at Milton School meet at least twice a term to discuss the running of the school.
This would include looking at:
 

  • The school’s budget and various policies e.g. behaviour

  • Performance Management

  • The overall ethos and direction of the school

  • Staffing structures

  • Long term planning

  • Safeguarding

  • CPD
     

The Local Governing Body (LGB) plays a strategic and operational role. They are involved in exclusions and dealing with any staff appeals. They also focus on achievement and improvement and they play an important role in accountability. The Head of School is accountable to the LGB and in turn the LGB is accountable to parents/carers and the Board of Directors and Members.
 

Parent Governors are elected by current parents when a vacancy becomes available. Staff Governors, are representatives of the teaching or support staff and are elected by the eligible staff when a vacancy becomes available. All Governors are appointed by the Local Governing Body.
They are selected to provide skills and experience which Governors feel are required. The Chair of the Local Governing Body is appointed by Interaction and Communication Academy Trust Board of Directors.
