Governors

We are very fortunate to have a governing body which is made up of highly skilled people who have Dundry Primary at the heart of all they do. Our governors represent the Church as well as holding educational backgrounds.

Mr Nick Cataldo

Governor

Nick joined the governing body in November 2017 as a director appointed governor. He currently works as a Senior Governance Manager specialising in Conduct Risk for a Financial Services Company. He ensures that the firm has an adequate control framework to meet its Conduct Risk obligations. This includes the design of operational processes that are in place to consider and manage Conduct Risk, together with the provision of appropriate staff training to embed a culture where the client is considered throughout the decision making process.
Nick very much believes that these key objectives are transferable to the role of a Governor and wants to put the children in the hearts and minds of every decision that we make. He will be working with Dundry to monitor Maths throughout the school.
