Working with the school to promote ‘Happiness, Growth and Excellence for All’
Message from the Chair of Governors – Ms Wazma Qais
School governors are people who want to make a positive contribution to children’s education and the role of the governing body is absolutely key to the effectiveness of a school. Governors are one of the largest volunteer forces in the country and have an important part to play in raising school standards. Our governing body is made up of volunteers from many different walks of life including those with a connection to the school.
The most effective schools demonstrate effective leadership and management – including by the governing board. School governors provide strategic leadership and accountability in schools. Among our responsibilities, the governors appoint the headteacher and deputy headteacher. It is governors who hold the main responsibility for finance in schools, and it is governors who work with the headteacher to make the tough decisions about balancing resources. Parents are well represented on our governing body and all parents are notified when a vacancy for parent governor arises.
My name is Wazma Qais and I m the chair of governors at Langley Primary School. I work as a civil servant at the Department for Education and I am an elected councillor in Solihull.
Before I started my career as a civil servant, I completed my BA (Hons) and post graduate Degree (MBA) and I am partly qualified CIMA accountant – Adv Dip MA
I grew up in Solihull and I love my hometown. I am very proud of where I live and of my community. I want to make a valuable contribution to children’s education, opportunities, and futures. I want to support and challenge the school so that it improves for pupils and staff and bring my own unique experiences, perspectives and insights into decision-making in the interests of the school community. I am committed to ensuring Langley Primary continues to provide an outstanding and well-rounded education to all its students regardless of their background.
My areas of involvement include Pupil Premium, school finances, and I am a member of the Pay committee.
