Co-opted Governor

- Chair of the Governing Board

Why did you become a Governor?

My children and I have been using the services at Fawood for 7 years. now, I was always involved as much as I could as a parent but when I found out about the Partnership and was asked if I wanted to be a governor I thought this was an excellent way to give back to something that has been a huge part of my family’s life.

What do you do when you’re not a Governor?

I am a music producer/ Sound engineer/ DJ who now owns an indie record label based in Wembley.

 Andrea Gray

Co-opted Governor

- Vice Chair of the Governing Board

Why did you become a Governor?

I welcomed the opportunity to be part of the Curzon/Fawood team, as being a governor is a new role for me. I look forward to learning about the work of the federation in more detail. I have always enjoyed working with young children and their families and believe that when parents offer children the opportunities to thrive, the benefits are sustained throughout life.
What do you do when you are not being a Governor?

I enjoy being with my family and like making things and being out of doors. I work for Brent Council as an Early Years Advisory Teacher mostly working with private, voluntary and independent nurseries and children’s centres. I work with managers and practitioners to support quality improvement in all aspects of their work with children from birth to five.

Diva Pinheiro

 Diva Pinheiro

Elected Parent

Why did you become a Governor?

I applied to be part of the governing board as a volunteer, because I think I can help the partnership to carry on providing the best education, childcare and family services to our community. My goal is to aid the Centre and our community by ensuring the excellent work done in recent years are maintained and areas not yet cared for are implemented and achieved.

What do you do when you are not being a Governor?

My professional background is working in Events. I organise and provide parties and celebrations for children and families. I learned with this business a lot about how to maintain high standards and I can use these skills to help monitor the Centre’s policies and to reach out Brent families unaware of the services available to them.
I recently finished Incredible Years course and Strengthening Families Strengthening Communities at Curzon Crescent. I aim to pursue this path with future parenting and coaching skills. Both courses gave me incentive to work with families in my community, and that’s the reason I want to continue studying, volunteering and helping families in this area.

Nikeel_Hussain[2]

Associate Governor

Why did you become a Governor?

It was recommended to me as I was already working in the local community so I felt it would benefit the partnership and to share experiences which may hopefully make a tiny contribution to improving it. I believe good education and housing are key to improving a person’s opportunities in life and so every little helps towards achieving and maintaining this.

What do you do when you are not being a Governor?

I work as a Neighbourhood Manager for Catalyst Housing in areas across Brent concentrating on housing related issues and regeneration projects. Like many governors I am involved with a few committees and boards. Within Catalyst, I am Chair of the Information and Consultation Committee which involves bringing the leadership team and colleagues together to work efficiently as one team – as well as sitting on the Pensions Governance Committee. I have also been an elected London regional board member for the Chartered Institute of Housing for over 4 years. When I’m not sat around a table talking or eating – I like to watch sports, mainly football, hoping Liverpool FC might win the Premier league one day.I enjoy travelling, theatre and occasionally walk around art galleries pretending to understand ‘the artist’s vision’

Shirley Tharpe

Co-opted Governor

Why did you become a Governor?

I have spent two enjoyable years working as a midwife at Curzon Crescent, running anti natal and post natal clinics and would like to be more involved in the school and the local community. I am a good team player, who has excellent interpersonal skills. I’m sure my 14 years of managerial experience in the Ministry of Defence and my 8 years as a midwife will be useful on the Governing Board.

What do you do when you are not being a Governor?

When I’m not a governor I work full time as a midwife. I have been married for 20 years and have a son. I enjoy spending time with my family, going to the cinema and the theatre in my spare time.

Co-opted Governor

Why did you become a Governor?

Employed as a project manager for the Stonebridge Housing Trust in 2000, I was responsible for the regeneration of the Stonebridge estate including the relocation of the Evan Davies Nursery centre which was replaced with the Fawood centre in 2004.

I became a community governor for the Evan Davies centre primarily to communicate with the staff about the redevelopment of the estate. Having become a governor I wanted to play a full and active role in making the centre a success. I viewed my role as an opportunity to put something practical back into the community and I still hold that view today.

I want the Fawood centre to be the beacon of the Stonebridge redevelopment and inspire the children to learn, develop and meet their full potential.

Tracy Crawford

Staff Governor

Why did you become a Governor?

I have been a member of staff at Curzon Crescent Nursery School since 2016. I work in the NEG2 unit with the 2 -3 year olds. I became a staff governor because I wanted to contribute to the Governing Board Meetings. I have over 25 years of experience working within different Local Government Children’s Centres with this age group and making a positive difference to the life chances of children. I also have hands on experience of working here and would like to gain a deeper insight and knowledge into Curzon Crescent and the Partnership, by providing support and challenge to the management team with the ultimate aim of working to keep a positive impact on education and positively influence the children’s lives. I am a good communicator who will represent the views of the staff on the Governing Board.

What do you do when you are not being a Governor?

I spend my time as a part time DJ and radio presenter having a great love of music plus I am a keen photographer. Currently I support rallies that highlight the need to deter knife and gun crime around the capital by going on marches and volunteering to help our future teenagers.
