Chair of Governors- Sandra Peddy

Sandra Peddy (Chair of Governors) is a Senior Finance professional who has worked mainly in Interior Design/Architectural practices and currently in the Arts sector. She has been a school governor for more than fifteen years with experience across Primary and Secondary schools and also pupil referral units

 

Vice-Chair, Afua Boaten Busia

I am a retired mother and grandmother who is very passionate about education, both formal and informal. I love working with and for young people.

My background is in admin/management and I have worked in international development organisations such as the United Nations and the World Bank, as well as international non-governmental organisations in the UK, South Africa and Ghana. My position prior to my retirement was Operations Manager for Student Support and Resources at a residential college for women. I also took pupils in years 7 to 13 for extra curricular and enrichment classes at an international school in Ghana for six months.

Co-opted Governor- Barry Tierney - Chair- Finance Committee

I believe strongly that every child should have equal opportunities growing up and also access to a good education. As a governor, I hope that I can use my skills as a qualified accountant and experience to provide valuable input that will help ensure that the objectives of the school are achieved and consequently the children of that school reap the benefits by seeing children achieve success.

Co-opted Governor- Dinesh Ramjee

I have a background in education and feel that I am able to provide critical challenge and support to the leadership team with the aim of driving up standards. As a governor it is also a wonderful opportunity to get to know the local community so that the school is accountable to the area it serves. The training governors receive is also an opportunity to develop new skills. I also enjoy the role.

My background/experience is in Education. I was a Mathematics and ICT teacher for over 30 years in the secondary sector. I was also a Headteacher for 10 year in a urban inner city school. I have also worked in the voluntary education sector in The Gambia, South Africa, Egypt, Ethiopia and Rwanda. I currently audit schools for the Inclusion Quality Mark (IQM) and am working for Unicef in South Sudan.

My dream for Bond is for it to become one of the best achieving schools in Merton and to be a happy place, where children enjoy their education, teachers enjoy working in the school and a place where the local community can meet, socialise and feel welcome.

Local Authority appointed Governor- Cllr Daniel Holden

I am a chemical engineer and work for an international petrochemical company. I am a big fan of science and do this everyday. I am keen to promote science and maths education in schools, which is one reason why I am a governor. I am also a councillor in the London Borough of Merton and I firmly believe in civic duty. I think education is really important and I want children at Bond to have the same chances as I have had.

 

Co-opted Governor- Natalie Groutage

I wanted to volunteer my skills to make a positive impact on the local community. Bond offers a wonderfully nurturing environment and I am happy to be contributing to sustaining and developing this.
I hope to use my skills as a finance professional and chartered accountant to provide a level of challenge and scrutiny to support the school and children to grow and achieve their maximum potential.

Co-opted Governor- Rahim Salam

As a parent I am very well aware of the need to provide the best education for my children. I am enthusiastic about education and love to help the community. I believe my skills and professional knowledge help with advice, guidance and being a critical friend to the school. My experience of education and work has provided me with a passion to help the children at our schools to be better prepared for further education and work life.
