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.
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.
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.
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
