The Governing Body is responsible for the strategy and long-term running of the school. They support and challenge the Head Teacher and the Senior Leadership Team, ensuring that the school as a whole is providing the best education for all pupils. They work in partnership with the entire school community, communicate regularly with the school, conduct visits and attend special assemblies.
The Governing Body are involved in lots of decisions about the school, but the Head Teacher is is the person to approach with individual queries about day-to-day issues.
Meet the Governing Body
Craig Rossiter – Partnership Governor
My name is Craig Rossiter and I have recently become a parent/partnership governor at Grange Park Infant School. The reason I joined the Governing Body was in the hope that I could help make a difference to my daughter’s education at Grange Park Infants. I have very close bonds to the school for when I was a child – I attended Grange Park from Nursery all the way through to year 6 and I am now privileged to have the opportunity to help maintain and improve this fantastic school.
In my professional career I work in a school in Hillingdon where I am a PE teacher and PE-Co-Ordinator. I am now in my 6th year in my current role and have built a good understanding of how a school environment works and will hope to bring fresh ideas to Grange Park.
Selma Malek – Co-opted Governor
My name is Selma Malek. I currently have a son in Year 2 at Grange Park Infant School. Since our time at the school I have been really impressed with the quality of teaching and the warm and friendly environment the schools brings to both children and parents.
I decided to become a Parent Governor in September 2016 as I felt I could learn a great deal about the running of the school and the education system and hopefully contribute my own personal experiences as a parent.
I have always wanted to contribute to the local community and when this position became available I knew it was something of interest to me. I am excited to attend the training courses available to support my role and look forward in maintaining the high standards the school is proud of.
Please feel free to approach me at any time before or after school.
Amrit Kalsi – Parent Governor
My name is Amrit Kalsi and I have been a parent governor since April 2016 at Grange Park Infant and Nursery School. My son is currently in Year 2 and I have seen him develop and make great progress being at the school. I would like to think that I can have an impact on continuing to help him learn and grow at this stage in his education.
I feel that it is important as a School Governor to provide support to the school and staff as they work hard to give all of our children a good educational start.
Working at a Secondary School has strengthened my belief of how the early years in education is so important in a child’s life. This is why I enjoy taking an active role in the school’s improvement and continued success. I feel that I can make a positive contribution to help ensure that the school provides the best possible opportunities for my son and all children at the school.
