Claire Kelly

Chair of Governors

I have two boys one currently in year 4 and one who has just left BPSP to start secondary school.   As a family we love living in this part of the world and aim to make the most of all the opportunities  locally especially outdoor pursuits.  Professionally I have worked in numerous roles both abroad and in this country, most recently as a rehabilitation Therapy Manager within the NHS.

Fr Jonny Scott


Fr Jonny Scott joined the ministry team at St Peter's in June as he began his 3-year Curacy.  He is honoured to be serving BPSP as governor.  When not in a dog-collar, Jonny loves exploring Dorset with his young family.


Michael Gooby


I am now semi-retired working in boat sales, having previously had a long term career with BT in their Engineering, Sales, Marketing and Training Divisions.

Interests include all things nautical, building restoration, psychology, and sport. I have previous school governance experience at both Stanley Green and Oakdale Schools and am a previous member of St Peter's Church PCC where I am a regular communicant.

Two of my grandchildren have attended BPSP School, one is currently at Lilliput CE School and one at Pre-School. I am looking forward to actively participating in the life of the school and to making a positive contribution to this excellent establishment. 


Elizabeth Fleming


I have two sons, one currently in year 4 and another who will join BPSP in September 2018. I joined the governing body in May 2017 and am enjoying supporting the excellent work done in BPSP. Professionally, I have worked in multinational programme management and relationship management roles in the financial services industry.

I am proud that myself and one of my children are part of such an inclusive, forward thinking and high achieving school.

I look forward to working with the school towards maintaining high standards of achievement, as well as supporting the values and ethos of the school.
