Lesley Boughton

Chair of Governors

Hello - I'm Lesley Boughton, and Vice 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.


Mrs C Leighton 

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.

Mr Addy

Teacher Governor 

My name is Kevin Addy and I have been the PE Teacher at Milton School for almost 6 years.  I have been the Teacher Governor for 3 years.  When I am not teaching sport, I enjoy watching my 6 year old twin boys participating in their sports - swimming, football and gymnastics at the moment. My competitive playing days are behind me now.  I enjoy keeping fit at the local gymnasium and swimming when I have the time but my sons take up most of any spare time I get these days.  I occasionally get to watch Rotherham United at the New York Stadium.  I also watch out for Tottenham Hotspur's results and try to get to a game of theirs a couple of times per season.

Clare Raistrick


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

Hello all, I am Alison Robinson, a parent governor. My son has attended Milton School from year 6 onwards, he is now in his final year. I have a wide range of experience of special educational needs both as a parent of two boys with autistic spectrum conditions & professionally in my role as a registered nurse. Over the 16 years I have been in nursing, many of those years have been caring for individuals with learning disabilities. In my leisure time I love yoga, going for walks with my family & our two dogs & holidaying in Great Britain.

Annie Turton


Originally from Rawmarsh, I developed an early love of numbers at Main Street Infants and Rosehill Junior school which led me to a career in teaching Mathematics. I have worked within Education for over forty years, thirty-seven years as a teacher of Mathematics in a number of schools across Yorkshire at both Middle and Senior Leader. To me there is nothing like the buzz of seeing student’s mathematical understanding develop at all levels, I love it when the penny drops!

My final teaching post was as an Assistant Headteacher with responsibility for leading and developing Mathematics and Modern Foreign Languages throughout South Craven School. I now work at the school part time as a Systems manager with responsibility for developing/writing the whole school timetable and analysing data.

I am a keen walker and have recently completed the South West Coastal Path, next challenge the Coast to Coast footpath. I’m a lifelong supporter of Rotherham United, a season ticket holder along with my close family.

I am delighted to have been recently appointed as a Governor and am looking forward to working with the team and making a positive contribution to the continuing success of Milton School.

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.
