Parent governor elections have now closed. Please do read more about your candidates for Parent Governor at Hatcham Temple Grove below. 


I have two children at HTG (Year 3 & 5). I was raised and educated in the local area so I am personally motivated and would be committed, to serve in a voluntary capacity as a parent governor. I would like to support the school’s leaders whilst holding them to account for educational performance, to ensure it retains its excellent reputation for academic success. I am a Probation Officer who currently works with Lewisham Council. My job involves working with adults and children, assessing risk, identifying needs and referring to or facilitating interventions to ensure positive life outcomes. I also play an active role in multi-agency work, safeguarding and public protection. I enjoy working as part of a team and I believe I have the necessary skills to contribute to planning school improvements, aimed at creating a happy and safe environment, to allow all children to fulfil their full potential.


Hi, I’m Janine, my son Isaac is in year one and loves his school. I’m deeply invested in the development of our fantastic school and giving all of us as parents an effective voice in our children’s education. Like you I’m worried about the impact of Covid on my son’s wellbeing and as parent governor my aim is to ensure every child is supported to reach their full potential in the new normal. As Head of Equality and Inclusion for the NHS in London and with many years experience as a senior leader in organisations like Sky and BT, I’ve worked hard to deliver inclusive cultures. I have developed award-winning programmes that address inequality and will act to ensure that school policies meet the needs of all our children. I will do my best to represent the diversity of our school community and commit to serving a full term. 


I am a parent of three children who have been to HTG and are in Year 6, 7 and 12 so I have known the school since 2008. I am passionate about equalities and environmental issues. I work full-time as a researcher of equalities with children and young people and I lecture in social work and youth work. I study children’s wellbeing, mental health, and experiences of discrimination and I want to help the school tackle all forms of prejudice, especially racism and homophobia. I have a particular interest in PSHCE and have run training sessions for teachers on Relationships and Sex Education, including at HTG. I think it’s important for teachers to have training to support children on social and emotional issues and to understand their differences. Having written school policies and having a PGCE helps me to understand teachers’ as well as parents’ perspectives.
