Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor. We have also provided a Register of Governor Interests and an Annual Statement of Issues for your information.
Governors fulfil a strategic role in the running of the school. They support, advise and are ambassadors for the school.
Responsibilities of the Governing Body include:
The Governing Body, in partnership with the head and staff at the school, is the agency through which the school is accountable to the Local Authority and to parents. Working via committees Governors make collective decisions at regularly held meetings.
We currently have no vacancies for governors, but when we do, we will advertise via this website and through letters home if for a parent governor.

Mr. K. Uddin Mr. J. Uddin
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).
I strongly believe, these are really exciting times to be at GVPS. 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.
I am a new parent governor who is eager to work with the governing body, staff, other parents, the local community, and the head teacher to provide all of our children with the best learning opportunities, whilst they are at Galton Valley Primary School. I bring my experience from working within Real Estate Management to the governing body, so that, together, we can ensure the right decisions are made for all of our children.
I have been a governor at Galton Valley since 2018, and have since adopted the role of SEND Governor and Staff Well-being Governor. I also work in CAMHS as a Children’s Psychological Well-being Practitioner, and I use my experience to ensure I promote positive emotional well-being and mental health outcomes for all children at Galton Valley.
