Meet the Members

Chancery Multi Academy Trust has five Members:

Peter Smith

Peter has retired from a career in automotive engineering and manufacturing with 20 years at board level, latterly with profit responsibility.

He has been involved with Pikemere School for over 20 years, firstly as a parent with 2 children attending the school and as a governor for over 10 years, relinquishing that role in September 2021.

He believes strongly that, primary education in particular, has the ability to shape and change children’s lives for the better and is proud to able to serve the Chancery Trust in the role of Member.

Ray Jeffrey

Ray was a former director of Trust House Forte and Sodexho until 1999 when he formed RPJ3 Group. He has over 25 years’ experience in contracts and facilities management – from chef to main board director.

In business he works alongside many schools, housing associations and care homes that operate their own in-house services or use a private contractor and assist these clients to get the very best from their non-core contracts.

Ray’s passion and respect for the difference schools can make to the lives of children and indeed the community, lies at the heart of his approach to business and also his governance commitments.

As Chair of Governors in a Christian school in a large Trust, he understands the crucial part good support services play in helping schools concentrate on their core activities of developing and nurturing the talents of children and regards himself as extremely lucky to be working in and supporting a sector that he loves so much.

Alison Hattersley

In her current role of Global Talent Lead for Ornua Foods, Alison is responsible for Leading the development and execution of a Talent strategy for the continued attraction, engagement, retention, development and deployment of high calibre and fit-for-purpose people. She provides thought-leadership, advice, challenge and support to HR and Business Leaders to ensure ‘people risks’ and ‘people opportunities’ are understood and factored into business decision making. In previous roles Alison has worked with individuals and teams in both the public and private sector to maximize their potential and ensure much higher level of success.

Ros Caulfield

Ros has extensive experience of classroom teaching and senior leadership roles in five schools of contrasting catchments and size across the country. During her twelve years as headteacher she successfully raised the standards of a good school to outstanding in every category in two consecutive Ofsted inspections.  Ros has worked alongside schools in the Shrewsbury Diocese sharing good practice and supporting new Headteachers. Through these roles she has assisted many schools on their journey to Good and Outstanding.

Raymond Palin

Raymond is a semi – retired commercial and residential lawyer of over 40 years standing.  Raymond is an independent consultant to a firm of solicitors in Lancashire on compliance issues but not involved in legal work as such these days.  Ray has been a Chair of Trustees with a Single Academy Trust for 3 years.  His educational and Governor skills have improved substantially over the years and next year he will be taking the National Leader of Governance course to try and improve his status in education.
