Meet our governors
Welcome to our Governors page
The governors of the school meet at least twice a term and their guiding work is of great importance to the smooth running of the school even though much of their work is unseen by the public. They are responsible for the school building and grounds, the curriculum in school, the appointing of staff and school financial management and parts of expenditure.
They consult with the head teacher in formal meetings and also through more frequent informal visits to school adopting the role of ‘a critical friend.’

Hi, I'm Roger Light. I became Parent Governor in 2019. I have two boys at Belton C of E school and another two who will attend when they are older, so I am keen to help the school carry on maintaining its good standard. Until recently I was a university lecturer in electronic engineering, and have an interest in STEM subjects. I now work primarily as a software developer.

Mrs Denise Boulton
I was born in County Durham and went to Houghton-le-Spring Grammar School. I then studied Russian and Italian at the University of Birmingham and lectured at the University of East Anglia for eighteen years.
I have lived in Edinburgh where I worked as a fundraiser for Crusaid to raise money to build a hospice and accommodation for drug addicted mothers with children. I worked as a producer for the Edinburgh Music Theatre Company, a pro-am company performing large scale musicals and operas and worked at St Giles’ Cathedral running the shop and restaurant.
I have spent time living in Norwich where I ran the Sunday school at St Andrews Church and wrote and produced plays for children.
I now live in Belton and my interests are sailing, gardening, theatre, science, the environment and local community. I have two daughters and two grandchildren.
Mr Ray Harriman
I have been a resident of Belton Village since 2003, having been born in Leicester. I am a big Leicester City fan, and attend most home games. My other interests are playing golf, bridge, gardening, walking and driving my sports car. I retired in 2003, and since then, my wife and I have enjoyed many holidays, both in Europe and further afield. Whilst working, I was at a senior level, having trained as a Structural Engineer. I feel that I bring business knowledge and sound financial awareness to the role of governor.
