Martyn Durrant

Since 2013 I have been self employed and run a small consultancy company in Ickenham. I work with 3 companies providing a number of services that relate to Satellite Communications. My primary skill is in sales and account management and have worked across multiple sectors including Media, Oil & Gas, NGO’s and Utilities companies. Before I started my small company I worked for a number of large corporates including Inmarsat & BT and have been in the telecommunications business pretty much the whole of my career. 

I have gained a lot of technical knowledge over the years in ICT and have a passion for Technology which I hope to be able to bring to the school. I enjoy working with people and have been told I can bring a lot of positive energy to projects that I am working on.
I am married for 24 years to Nina and have 2 daughters Sammy 23 who works as a teacher at Iver Village Primary School and Becky 21 who works as a call handler for the London Ambulance Service

Alison Major

I have lived in the local area all my life and I attended the school many years ago. Being a governor enables me to play a greater part in the school for the committed staff and young achievable children.

The skill sets that I can contribute are legislative compliance, contractor management, insurance types and levels, process and culture changes, finding resolutions, financial forecasting and budget tracking which I am excited to bring to the Schools Governing Board.

 Parent Governors       

Bushra Razzeque

I have been a qualified teacher for 8 years, having graduated from the Institute of Education with a PGCE in Business and Economics Education. I am a mother of two boys, my eldest currently in attendance at Iver Village Infant School. I believe that being a parent allows me to understand the needs of children first and foremost. I also understand that this must be balanced  with the difficult and challenging task of running a school. I would like to use my teaching background to help with this practical implementation. 

My mentality and passion for teaching has always come from a “children first” viewpoint and I hope to continue this in my role as parent governor, and be able to help achieve the full potential of the school.
