Meet the Governors

Welcome to the Governors' section.

Our Governing Body is made up of 12 members

 

  • Headteacher (1)

  • Parent Governors (3) – elected by parents 

  • Staff Governors (1) – elected by staff

  • Co-Opted Governors (4) – appointed by the Governing Body

  • Associate Members (1) - Associate members without voting rights

     

The Role of the Governing Body is to hold the Headteacher and the management team to account for the academic progress of pupils and the financial running of the school.  They are part of the Leadership Team and they help to set the strategic direction and monitor the school.

 

You will see from the biographies of Governors they come from all walks of life and all make a significant input into the school community and the decision making.  Governors attend half termly meetings, they consider reports and can join committees that oversee the Quality of Teaching, the school facilities and the school budget.  If you would like more information about becoming a Governor and making a real difference please call the school office.

Jason Crispin Chair of Governors

I was a Parent Governor for 5 years and am now the Chair of Governors and also part of the Finance Committee. Having many years of experience in technology, I have played an active role in computing with the school, helping purchase the latest technology to enable children’s development through assisted learning. I have played a role in the improvement of the site facilities making sure the children have a safe and pleasant environment. I enjoy being a Governor, working with others who share the same passion in striving to assist in children’s learning. You feel a real sense of achievement when you see positive impact of decisions made.

 

Jane Bejon
 

I have been a Governor for six months and I have been co-opted on to the Governing Body for four years. 

I taught at Langtons Infants for 25 years and retired last summer, after working first as a full-time teacher and later as part of a job share.  I was based mainly in Year 2 and I was Music Subject Leader.    I have an M.A., a P.G.C.E. and an A.L.C.M.

I have two grown up sons, one of whom is a doctor working in Kenya on malaria research, and one working in a London bank.  I also have two grandchildren living in Kenya, a boy and a girl aged 9 and 7.  My husband is a retired lecturer. 

My hobbies include swimming, walking in the countryside and some private tuition. 

I became a Governor because I wanted to continue to be involved in the life of the school, and I felt that with my teaching background I could make a useful contribution. 

James Glass
 

I joined the Governing Body in November 2016 as the Local Authority representative. Having served on boards in the past I know how important the role of Governors is in creating a great school. The early years of education are key in setting a solid foundation for the future. As Governors, we play a part in ensuring the school has great teachers, the facilities and materials needed and an environment suited to learning. I bring to the table knowledge on governance, finance and property management having worked in various roles in the social housing sector. I also volunteer for Dagenham & Redbridge Football Club where I am the club commentator

Jacqueline Hall

My name is Jacqueline Hall and I have been a co-opted Governor at Langtons Infant School since June 2015.  Apart from the general Governing Body, I am also a member of the Finance Committee.  My qualifications include MSc Coaching and Behavioural Change, NLP Practitioner, PG Cert Ed (Adult Education).  I am the Managing Director/Development and Leadership Coach at DALE Coaching Ltd.  The skills I bring to the role of Governor relate to development and leadership coaching, planning, evaluation, quality assurance, change management, strategic development, project development and management.  My qualities include being creative, adaptable, organised, perceptive, innovative.  I believe a good foundation, comprising family, community and education, is the springboard for anyone to achieve their fullest potential.  In my spare time I sing in a gospel choir and I enjoy DIY.

I work full time in London, and bring with me 25 years of experience working in technology; leading projects, teams and training acrossmultiple geographic regions with a focus on improving performance, standards and capabilities.
Outside of work I have a passion for sports, and I enjoying playing cricket and hockey for a local club, as well as golf whenever I can.
