Meet Our Governors

 Jamie Pardon

I am very proud to be the Chair to the Governing Body at Chantry Primary Academy.  I am a Headteacher and have been fortunate enough to work collaboratively with the Chantry Team in the past and now wish to give something back by actively supporting the school as a governor.

Education is my passion and have worked in various settings in Luton and Northamptonshire across my career.  I feel this experience and dedication means I can help to continue Chantry's educational journey for the benefit of all children.

 Cori Bateman
I am a mother of two daughters. I have been in education since qualifying as a teacher in 1991 and have been Headteacher at Chantry Primary Academy since 2004. 

In September 2017 Chantry formed a Federation with Whitefield Primary School and the two schools work very closely together under our shared leadership structure.  In January 2019 we joined with Southfield Primary School to form a Multi Academy Trust – Pioneer Learning Trust.

The success of our work at Chantry has led to our leadership team being asked to support other schools in Luton and surrounding areas.

The work of the Local Governing Body is essential in ensuring that Chantry continues to maintain high standards and continues to be the successful school that it is.

 Bill Rowe

I have been employed in education since qualifying as a teacher in 1991 and after a period of time spent working overseas and in other Luton schools, I joined the team at Chantry in 1998 and am currently the Head of School. Throughout this time I have seen the school develop and grow into the fantastic place it is today and enjoy the privilege of working alongside many talented colleagues and pupils on a daily basis.

I am a strong advocate of our Values Education Programme and try to apply this philosophy and thinking to the broad and varied leadership role that I undertake at Chantry.
