The governing body is an important part of the school’s senior leadership. Governors work closely with the headteacher and school leaders to ensure they have a good understanding of the outstanding education provided for the children.

The governors are from different roles and experiences. This includes: current and past parents, the private sector, the education sector and retired personnel. This range of experience supports an effective governing body.

Jane Kendall-Nicholas - Governing Body Chair & Co-chair of Curriculum Committee

I have worked as a teacher in a varied range of settings, including working as a secondary school science teacher and an educator at an environmental centre. I currently work as a university tutor. I have three children and enjoyed being involved in their schools in different ways as they grew up. As a co-opted governor, I am delighted to have the opportunity to make a contribution to the work and success of Feltham Hill Infant and Nursery School. I am on the curriculum committee.

Obby Alli-Balogun - Vice Chair of Governing Body & Chair of Finance & Premises Committee

I am a Technology Consultant with extensive experience working in multinationals with the ability to lead and manage enterprise-wide transformations spanning EMEA and the Americas. I combine strategic, commercial and innovative solutions with a record of digitally transforming and optimising businesses to deliver growth.

I believe every child is entitled to a good quality education and school is an avenue to shape future citizens which enables them to contribute positively to society. It is with that passion that I became a co -opted governor to ensure the best possible outcome for the pupils of Feltham Hill Infant and Nursery School.

Outside of work, I enjoy taking part in fast flat race (although I tell myself at the middle of every race to never do it again), watching movies and relaxing with family.

Simon Roake - Staff Governor

I am a class teacher at the school, currently working in the nursery and with previous experience in Reception and Year 2 at Feltham Hill. I am also responsible for the computing curriculum and maintaining the school website alongside other members of staff. Outside of school, I am an avid reader with a passion for books and sharing them with others.

Tracey Tilling - SEN Governor

I am a newly elected Governor at Feltham Hill Infant and Nursery School. I have recently retired after being in local government for many years, where I worked as the Head of Business Support for social services, including children’s services.

I have found my recent visits to the school inspiring. It is clear to see the dedication of the staff throughout the school, and it is a pleasure to see the children fully participating in the learning experience. I am so pleased to have the opportunity to be involved with this school.

 Sara Abbasi - Chair of Curriculum Committee

I am currently working in the financial services sector within the field of corporate governance. I am very passionate about education and have previously worked with children in schools in the UK, Germany, South Africa and India.

I was appointed as school governor at FHI at the start of 2021, and I sit on the curriculum committee. The school is very close to my home, so I've had the opportunity to see the teachers hard at work and the pupils continuing their 'busy learning' in the playground throughout the pandemic from my bedroom window! I am both grateful and excited that I am able to contribute in a small way to FHI's continued growth and development as a governor.
