Sutton-on-Trent Primary and Nursery School

Sutton School shines


Colleen Scholefield

Colleen Scholefield

Governor Category: Parent

Appointed by: Parents

Current term of office: 18/5/17 to 17/5/21

Register of business interest: none


As a parent and a volunteer at the school, I have seen the hard work and commitment that the staff, governors and volunteers put in to improving the outcomes of our children. This inspired me to take the next step and join the governing body, where I am enjoying the challenges and rewards that the role brings.


I moved into the village with my family in 2012 and, after a lot of moving about. We're very happy to be putting down roots in this great community and my children both attend the school.

I have worked in a variety of fields and across many disciplines and I hope this will allow me to draw on the breadth of skills and experience I've picked up along the way. I spent my late teens and most of my twenties in the Royal Air Force working in telecoms before moving into corporate life in London, working for Visa where I spent 14 years in various roles including Marketing, Operations, Fraud Compliance and Customer Services. Since then I've been running my own businesses, getting involved in the community and enjoying time with my kids. I'm enjoying being involved as a governor and the challenges and rewards that the role brings.
