OUTSTANDING school governors were rewarded for their excellence at the third Ealing Governance Awards.

Greenford High School, commended in its Ofsted report last November, won the Outstanding Full Governing Body award.

The award for best chair of a governing body went to Matthew Jeatt, of Wood End Infant School, Northolt. He was nominated by head teacher, Lucy Rogers.

She said: “Matthew has played a pivotal role in the success of the school and, therefore, has had a huge impact on our pupils and their outcomes.”

Kuldip Gill, from North Primary, Southall, won the Individual Governor award, while Val Drake, of Twyford Academy, Acton, won the Clerk to Governing Body award.

Christine Peppiatt, chair of governors at Twyford, said: “Val has shown incredible application, persistence, attention to detail and problem-solving skills.”
