Governors Who's who
Mrs G Gooch
Chair of Governors
I am delighted to be Chair of Governors of Iver Village Infant School.
I have a career working closely with professionals in educations, healthcare, manufacturing and services.
I have been a governor before and I am trustee of a mental health charity based in West London.
In my role as a governor I am chair of the Finance & HR Committee, the Head Teacher Performance Management Committee and Pay Review & Admissions Committee.
Vice Chair of Governors
My working life was as a police offer and working for a local authority. I have been associated with the school since 1990.
My son attended the school my wife before her untimely death was the school secretary. I have been a governor for about 15 years now and served previously as chairman of the governing board and also as chair of the H&S committee including being the safeguarding governor.
Co- opted Governors
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.
My name is Davinder, better known as Dali. I am an applied chemist and have worked for many years in BigPharma companies as an employee and employer. I took early retirement but soon became restless and started a small craft business to exercise my creative talents. I demonstrate products and share techniques on daytime television.
I have been a resident of Richings Park since 2013 but also share some of my time with my family in Canada. I would like to bring to the school my business experience and creativity, to support the families of Iver Village Infant School.
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.
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.
My name is Heather and I am a mother of 1 (2 if you include my partner). I am a Hairdresser by trade and I am the Manager at The Lovely Hair Studio and School.
