Co-opted Governor: elected by the other members of the Governing Body
Term: 03.09.15 - 02.09.19
My current role is deputy curriculum leader of English at Cranford Community College. My responsibilities include curriculum development and academic interventions such as provision for EAL learners, literacy intervention, strategic deployment of support staff and literacy across the curriculum. I have previously led aspects of teacher training within the school and taught within a feeder primary school to help raise standards. My experience and expertise equips me to work with children from a range of backgrounds with a variety of needs to ensure they achieve their potential.
I have two young children of my own, one of whom is in Year Two - his experience of school has enabled me to see primary school from a new perspective. My knowledge and experience is central to my role as a governor at Cranford Primary, namely helping to achieve the school's mission to 'set high standards and expectations' and to support Mrs Walia, and all staff to ensure that all members of the school community reach their full potential.
