School Governors

Chair of Governors Statement

Hello, my name is Asif Hussain and I am the Chair of Governors.  I have been a Local Authority governor at St. Mary’s for just over 4 years.  I am privileged to have been given an opportunity by my governing body to undertake this extremely important role.

The key reason I decided to become a governor was to ensure that children get the best education possible while at a primary school and too ensure that this is under-pinned by a strong leadership team with a strong vision of success.  

My professional career is within a Wealth Management division of a major high street bank, I am a Regional Manager and have been for many years.  My day to day role has given me a strong set of skills that are transferable within Governance within a school.

If you would like to raise any issues or concerns with me, which cannot be addressed by school staff, or would like to ask any questions you may write or email me via the school office and I will get back to you.
