Growing up within the local area, I have been lucky to have benefited from all that the community has to offer. Becoming a parent governor at Galton Valley was the perfect opportunity to give back a little of what I gained from a community focused on raising opportunities for its young.
With that aim, and a background in finance, I have worked with my colleagues at Galton Valley over the last ten years. My current roles are Chair of Outcomes Committee, Head Teacher Appraisals and also Math's governor.
It is a privilege to be part of a team striving for the betterment of our children's well-being; seeing them grow and succeed in becoming all that they can be. We encourage hard work and resilience and our pupils always rise to the challenge. I am incredibly proud of each and every one of them.
My name is Jalal Uddin. I became a parent governor in 2010 as I always wanted to contribute towards the development of my local community as well as being a part of shaping the future of our next generations. My two children both Jabir (8years old) and Jannah (5years old) go to GVPS- and I am really proud to be a part of their learning & development journey.
I have always been a great admirer of ‘education’. Previously, I served as a local authority governor at another school in Sandwell over the past years. Currently, I am a Governor of Sandwell College too.
Professionally, I work as a manager at Community Connect Foundation (CCF) that provides a range of services including providing education and skills development training opportunities for young people and adults. I am also a Chartered Marketer and a member of Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM).

We, ‘the school community’ are determined not only to be outstanding in all we do, but also to develop and sustain a unique learning culture that makes being part of the school an engaging and challenging experience for all our pupils.
At GVPS, we are on a mission to create something really special – an inclusive and cooperative school with exceptional standards that is rooted in its local community.
