Our Governing Body

Introduction & Welcome

The Governing Body works alongside the Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team to ensure that Whitehall Infant School provides a good quality education for our pupils. For more information about the role of the Governing Body, click here

There are a variety of roles within The Governing Body, including Parent governors, Co-opted Governors and Staff Governors. Each member of The Governing Body brings a range of skills to the role. 

All governors can be contacted through Whitehall Infant School – please put your question or query in writing and give in to the school office in a sealed envelope marked ‘private & confidential’ and addressed to the Governor concerned.  The school will ensure this is promptly passed on.

Governor Profile - Mr Peter James (Chair of Governors)

I have lived in and around Uxbridge since the 1970’s and have been involved with Whitehall Infant school in different guises since the 1980’s when my children attended the school. Following a career as an auditor for multi-national companies I am now retired and still live locally.

I am currently Chair of the Governing Body and work alongside the Headteacher and staff to try and make the school as good as we can make it. I am also a Governor at Whitehall Junior School. 

Governor Profile - Mr Jim McVeigh (Chair of Curriculum and Standards Committee)

I am a qualified teacher with degrees in microbiology and mathematics. I have worked in several schools, including as a senior leader in a large comprehensive school in the UK and an all-through school in the Cayman Islands. Currently, I am director of an education consultancy, G2G Education Ltd, offering a wide range of support services to schools. It is one of a very few companies accredited to carry out British Schools Overseas inspections.

 I am trained as an Ofsted inspector and have considerable experience in leading school inspections, particularly in primary schools, here and abroad. Other work includes leading peer reviews of academies in a large multi-academy trust and carrying out safeguarding audits in schools.

 I value my role as a governor at Whitehall Infants. I hope I can contribute to the school’s continued success.

Governor Profile - Mrs Man Tsuey (Manny) Tse BSc, PhD (Parent Governor, Vice Chair)

I was born and grew up in the UK and I have one child currently attending Whitehall Infant School (my other child is attending Whitehall Junior School). I’ve been a governor at Whitehall Infant School since May 2016.

 I was a research scientist before moving into scientific publishing and I currently work as a freelance scientific editor.

 I am honoured to be part of the governing body of Whitehall Infant School and I look forward to working with the other members of the governing body and the staff and the children of the school to ensure that we provide the best place for children to develop a lifelong love of learning as well as other skills to become happy, confident, well-rounded individuals.

 

Governor Profile - Mr Andrew Wilson M.Soc,Sci., DipSW, DMS (Safeguarding Governor)

I have spent most of my professional career working in local authority children's safeguarding where I also am currently employed. My aim within the role of safeguarding governor is to make safeguarding approachable, sensible and effective. My children are no longer at Whitehall Infants but I wish to continue to support a school which I see as very much serving and enriching the local community.
