Md Rashed Ahmed

Md Rashed Ahmed is a Parent Governor whose term of office commenced in October 2016.

Outside of being a Governor, he is a father of two children as well as a Certified Accountant who runs his own accountancy practice. Alongside this, he presents on local TV and radio about accountancy and taxation and enjoys keeping up-to-date with current affairs. He became a Parent Governor as he is interested in knowing how a school is run to accompany his interest in children’s education. Most importantly, he would like to make a positive difference. Mr Ahmed likes the way in which Winsor is a well-established school in the heart of the community with excellent resources and partnerships with business and prestigious institutions in London.

Mr David Christie

Mr David Christie is a Co-opted Governor and has been a member of the Governing Body for over 8 years, and Chair since 2015.

David grew up in Beckton and was a councillor here from 2010 to May 2018. He became a Winsor Governor as he knows how important education is to our young people. As a result, he wanted to be involved and help to support the school. He currently works for Transport for London where he is involved in planning the future of London. He enjoys travelling as well as spending free time with his wife and young son. David describes Winsor’s children as never ceasing to amaze him in what they achieve and every time he visits the school, he recognises that all the staff are so positive about making the school even better for the whole community.

Stuart Cameron

Stuart Cameron is a Co-opted Governor whose term of office commenced in July 2015.

Following a successful career working within Education and the Local Authority Children’s Services for about 35 years, Stuart is now retired with a keen interest in Art. Following his retirement, he remained committed to education and wanted to have some involvement in helping the young people of Newham. Stuart recognises the hard working staff at Winsor alongside the great pupils who are eager to learn. He appreciates the supportive parents and enjoys being a member of the school community.

Julie Evans

Julie Evans is Co-opted Governor who joined the Governing Body initially as an Associate Member in April 2017 before being elected to her current position.

Outside of being a Governor, Julie is a parent, an actress, a member of a choir and the treasurer of a community market alongside seeking employment. Julie initially became involved in the life of Winsor where she volunteered as a reading mentor as well as supporting pupils attending educational visits. By joining the Governing Body, Julie felt that she could make an ongoing effective contributing long after her own child had left using the skills she had developed. Julie particularly likes the morale amongst the staff team and the manner in which the pupils conduct themselves; demonstrating happiness and contentment during the school day. Julie appreciates the manner in which staff, parents and Governs are respected and listened to.

Chris French

Chris French is a Co-opted Governor whose term of office commenced in October 2015.

Outside of being a Governor, Chris enjoys travelling, learning new languages, and visiting the theatre alongside caring for her toddler granddaughter. Following her successful career as HR Manager for Newham schools, Chris was familiar with Winsor Primary and its pupils for a number of years before she retired.

Following the disappointing inspection outcome in 2015, Chris recognised the good work that the school Leadership Team was doing and felt that she could help support the school in achieving the very clear vision that they had for the schools and its pupils. Chris likes meeting pupils and describes Winsor’s pupils of being a knowledgeable and confident group of pupils who are generally ready to help one another whenever they can. The pupils are also not shy in explaining to Governors what they feel would make their school day even more enjoyable.
