Tarvinder Singh. Foundation Governor.
Having been a parent at the school since 2009, I have had a vested interest in the school’s well-being and success. I feel a deep sense of responsibility and pride in being able to support the school as a Governor.
Professionally, I work in a global role as a Digital Marketing Manager in the IT industry. Over the years, through voluntary service, I have offered my professional skills in helping the school such as managing a project to create the school website, in the past I have been an active member of the PTA and helped organise the annual school mela and winter fair.
In my role as Governor, I act as a critical friend to the leadership team to ensure that we support and challenge them to achieve the best that they can. My primary focus as a Governor is on safeguarding, child protection and SEND. I work closely with our Designated Safeguarding Lead, together we work to ensure that safeguarding is given the highest priority at Khalsa Primary School. This involves ensuring effectiveness of safeguarding for everyone in the school. Over the years I have gained familiarity with guidance and legislation and am confident in challenging the leadership at KPS on strategies for monitoring and improving the behaviour and safety of pupils.
Through personal experience I have genuine interest in SEND. In my role as SEND Governor, I work closely with the SENCo to carry out monitoring activities. These include ensuring the progress of learners with SEND are closely monitored through reviewing and understanding internal and external data as well as understanding how the SEND budget is used. In turn, it is my responsibility to inform the governing body on all aspects of SEND provision.
I am proud of our school and am committed to help ensure the school remains a safe, happy, and healthy learning environment for our children to enjoy and achieve their full potential. I am a strong supporter of the school ethos and principles, it is a unique environment, every parent and pupil should take advantage and benefit from this.
