Shafia Haroon

Co-Opted Governor

Term: 17.3.20 - 16.3.24


I first joined the Governing Body at Cranford Primary School as a Parent Governor in 2011 when my eldest son was in year 2.   I have a strong passion for education and seeing my community's children succeed.  During my time on the Governing Body, I have been part of and currently chair the Curriculum Committee.  I have strong interpersonal skills which I believe are an asset when working with parents, staff and the Governing Body.  Pre-Covid days I regularly visited the school and hold a good insight into the development of the children and the process and procedures adopted by the school.


Throughout my governance, I have ensured a physical presence in and around the school and engaged with parents at every opportunity.  I have established a rapport with the parental body that first elected me, whilst continuing to maintain a strategic approach to school governance.


I have assisted to help decide the priorities for improving the school, listened to parents’ opinions and taken account of them as I contribute to governors’ decisions.  I have worked in partnership with the Headteacher, the rest of the Senior Leadership Team and co-operatively with other governors to raise standards and improve outcomes for all children and look forward to continuing to do so. 


The last year and a half has been difficult, however the school has adapted and with its excellent leadership has continued to maintain high standards.
