Total membership of the Governing Body is 4.
Peter Storey (Chair of Governors) - Trust Appointed Governor (Formerly a Parent Governor)
My name is Peter Storey and my daughter is currently attending Year 4 and has been at SDPS since Foundation, I have seen her grow and develop successfully, all thanks to a team of staff working toward the same objective, to give our children the best start they possibly can, in a safe, caring and happy environment.
I am currently a Catering Manager with Cater-Ed, a company providing hot nutritious meals to the majority of Primary schools in the Plymouth area.
In a previous life, I was head of Retail and Catering at the Theatre Royal Plymouth, before this I owned a coffee shop, tapas bar and a fine dining restaurant.
In my spare time I like to cycle and spend as much time as I can with my daughter and family.
Kate Roberts - (Vice-Chair) Trust Appointed Governor (Formerly a Parent Governor)
I am Kate Roberts, Deputy Chair of Governors, I have been a school governor since 2016. My son is currently in year four.
I work for Mars Inc, managing the European Engineering Leadership programme. I have always worked in Learning and Development and am passionate about unlocking the potential in others. What interested me in becoming a school governor is how we, as a school together with parents/carers, help our children to develop their strengths and talents to be the best they can be.
As a family we love being outdoors on the moors, in the countryside or on the beach. We enjoy camping and travelling, and I keep fit by running and keep calm by practicing yoga (or at least I try to)!
