Our school governors are:
Mrs V.Virdee (Chair of Governors)
"It is important to me that we all continue to make our school a happy and enriching place to be for our children, the staff and all parents."
Reverend M.Poulson (Vice Chair of Governors)
"I became a governor because I'm committed to enabling the flourishing of our children here in Southall and want to see Dairy Meadow continue to develop as an exceptional place of learning. I have two children currently at the school and am passionate about the thriving of the whole school community."
"I became a Governor at Dairy Meadow in 2006 when I was the Police Sergeant on the local Norwood Green Safer Neighbourhoods Team and although I've long since ceased to be part of the local policing team, I've maintained my link with Dairy Meadow out of a deep affection for the school, the staff and fellow governors. As you may expect from someone with a policing background I also have a strong interest in Safeguarding matters. I am immensely proud to be part of the Dairy Meadow Governing Body and throughout my many years at the school I have never ceased to be hugely impressed by the conduct and achievement of the pupils."
"Both my children attend the school and I became a school governor to invest in the learning and development of children and young people in our community."
"I became a school governor because I really wanted to find a way to connect to my community and provide support using my skills in a different environment. I am an accountant and hope to use my finance knowledge to help the school manage the budget and ensure the pupils are receiving the highest quality education and enjoying their time at the school."
“As a staff governor I contribute to the decisions that are made by the governing body as well as helping them to support the staff of the school.”
"I have been a Parent Governor since 2017 and am very proud to be Vice Chair of the Curriculum and Student Welfare Committee. I have two children studying at Dairy Meadow Primary School and feel it is important that every child is safe, happy and confident at the school. I am approachable and feel privileged to represent parents and carers."
"I feel privileged to be part of the school's Governing Body, especially as I am a former pupil. I am keen to help Dairy Meadow maintain it's high standards and meet future challenges."
" I have been a Governor at Dairy Meadow since 2002, when my eldest child was in Year 2 at the school. As a Governing Body, we work to support the Head teacher and Staff, to provide a high quality, meaningful education in a safe environment, for all pupils."
Governors are volunteers who work alongside the head teacher. They play an important strategic role in the school and:
- set the aims and objectives for the school;
- set the policies for achieving those aims and objectives;
- set the targets for achieving those aims and objectives;
- monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making towards achievement of its aims and objectives;
- are a source of challenge and support to the head teacher (a critical friend).
