Governor Profiles

John Watts

I have been a member of the local governing board since March 2020, and was previously a member of the ‘Rapid Improvement Group’, which was formed following the school’s 2019 Ofsted inspection. This involvement has allowed me to witness the school’s significant journey of improvement over that time. I currently hold the positions of vice-chair and SEND link governor on the board, although I am temporarily covering the Chair of Governors role until a new Chair can be appointed. I have three children currently attending King's Sutton Primary Academy (KSPA), and share the school’s vision for all pupils at KSPA to have ambition for what they can achieve.


Professionally I work as the Director of a small education-related business. In this role, I liaise regularly with staff in primary schools, and keep up-to-date with the latest developments in the education sector. Previously I worked for a decade as a further and higher education careers adviser and information officer, advising both graduates and further education students, including helping those applying for teacher training programmes. As an information officer, I was regularly involved in developing resources specifically for students with disabilities. Other previous roles include working as a teaching assistant in a secondary school, and as a 24hr live-in carer for a postgraduate student with physical disabilities.

Daniel Cuttell

I am a Parent Governor at KSPA with a linked responsibility for Pupil Premium. I have two children currently attending the school and am passionate about helping to ensure they and all pupils at KSPA experience an ambitious, rewarding curriculum.  


I have worked in the education sector for 18 years, for an organisation that provides educational resources, qualifications and training to schools in the UK. This has involved working closely with a wide range of schools across the Primary and Secondary age ranges, to understand the challenges they face and how such schools can best be supported. In that time I have also worked closely with a number of key organisations in education, including Ofsted, the Department for Education and Ofqual. More recently, I now lead the team responsible for developing and delivering GCSE and A Level English qualifications and examinations in schools in England.

Hayley Bellamy

I have lived in King's Sutton for 13 years, and currently have two children attending the school; with a further two joining in 2023. I am part of the PTFA; with a passion to raise funds, and build relationships within the local community. 


As a Governor, I hope to contribute my skills and experience in safeguarding. I believe it is paramount that all children feel valued, build self-confidence, and can learn in a safe and happy environment which enables them to reach their full potential. 

Megan Cooper

I joined King's Sutton Primary in 2023 after previously working at a range of different sized schools. I have worked across all year groups over the past few years which has given me a wealth of experience in understanding the needs of the pupils. 


My previous career as a photographer has allowed me to bring a knowledge and understanding of technology, which I use in my leadership of computing and science at King's Sutton Primary. My other great passion is history and I enjoy recounting past events and discussing the lessons we can learn from looking in our own British history, alongside world history. 


I value the opportunity to be part of children's lives and help shape their futures. My role as staff governor enables me to do the same for our small, hard-working but friendly school. As a teacher, I feel rewarded by my governor role as the children here deserve nothing but the best I can give. 

Natalie Wilson

With 16 years of teaching experience in various independent schools across Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire, I am deeply committed to fostering an educational environment where teaching is challenging, engaging, and supportive for all students. My goal is to create a classroom that is a positive, inclusive space with high yet realistic expectations tailored to each child’s unique learning needs. I have a Master of Science in Teaching and Learning, with my research focusing on the benefits of a learning through enquiry approach to geography.  I also have an NPQ in Senior Leadership, in which I focused on how to implement effective CPD and SEND provision for students within the classroom.


For the past five years, I have served as Head of Geography, and starting September 2024, I will assume the role of Assistant Head of Teaching, Learning, and Enrichment. As Head of Geography has been marked by significant achievements, including unifying the department with a shared teaching approach that meets individual student needs, raising examination results, and revitalizing fieldwork and outdoor learning experiences across all school phases.


A passionate advocate for technology in education, I have developed and implemented a comprehensive whole-school CPD strategy. This strategy emphasises coaching to identify development areas and encourages staff collaboration in CPD delivery. A notable initiative under this strategy has been the introduction of a rolling carousel of staff training sessions focused on the effective use of technology in the classroom.


I have played a pivotal role in working across the Stowe group, where I developed the 'Stowe Stretch Programme' for pupils with higher learning potential. This program offers a diverse range of lecture and seminar-style workshops designed to promote critical thinking and intellectual exploration. Additionally, I designed and implemented the Scholars Future Ready Programme for Year 8 students. This initiative includes the introduction of the iPQ and offers bespoke topics across various subjects. The program also features a tailored scholarship exploration week, providing scholars with opportunities to explore work experience in fields such as finance, art, and social enterprise.


As a Governor for King's Sutton Primary Academy, I am eager to bring my extensive experience, innovative mindset, and unwavering commitment to educational excellence to the School. I am committed to supporting every student in realising their full potential and contributing to the continued success and growth of King's Sutton Primary Academy.
