I have lived in the Redbridge area all of my life having attended Redbridge Infants and Junior Schools, and after short spells in Seven Kings and Goodmayes moved back into Ilford 20 years ago. Both of my children attended Highlands Primary and then Valentines High School.
I spent my working life as an accountant in industry but am now working towards a doctorate.
After being approached by Mrs Madhani who was then the vice-chair, I was appointed as a governor in 2001 and have been chair of the Governing Body since 2004. My main role as chair is to co-ordinate the work of the Governing Body with the head teacher, and to ensure the focus is on teaching and learning.
I am one of the link governors on Rights Respecting Schools, and the link governor with the School Council.
