Meet the Governors

Our Governing Body works closely with the Headteacher and staff of the school to ensure the best possible provision and outcomes for the children at World’s End. Their main functions are to:


  • Set the vision and strategic direction of the school
  • Hold the Headteacher to account for its educational performance, and
  • Ensure financial resources are well spent


Governors meet every half term; their meetings take place at the school in the evening and usually last for around two hours. Committees of the Governing Body – Finance and Pay & Staffing Committees – also meet regularly throughout the year.


Individual governors have specific responsibilities to do with aspects of the school or its curriculum and report back to the full Governing Body. The Governor with responsibility for Safeguarding is Miss H Setchell. 


The Governing Body was reconstituted in September 2020 and comprises 11 governors: one local authority governor, one staff governor, two parent governors, six co-opted governors, plus the Headteacher. The co-opted governors come from a range of backgrounds and bring with them valuable skills in areas such as finance, commerce and human resources, as well as knowledge of the local community and education.

Miss H Setchell  (Co-Chair)

Hello. I am really excited that I have been able to join World’s End Infant and Nursery School community. I was co-opted onto the Governing Body in July 2019 and enjoyed meeting the school council at my first Governing Body meeting.


I am a teacher working in Birmingham so am looking forward to finding out about the Teaching and Learning in school and how my role as Governor can support the continued school development. I live near to school and am keen to make sure that it provides the best opportunities that it can to all the pupils.


I have been asked to be the named Safeguarding Governor and look forward to visiting the school as often as possible.


I spend a lot of my time baking and can often be found enjoying all sorts of cake.


Mr O Killeen  (Co-Chair)

I have been a member of the Governing Body here for four years, and I’m really excited to have been appointed for a second term. I remain the school’s responsible governor for Pupil Premium, and work with the school to ensure that everyone at World’s End gets the best education possible.


I currently work in governance for a Multi-Academy Trust with 28 schools across England. Prior to this I worked in Higher Education. I am aware that teachers to excellent job to support and develop children; and I am pleased to be able to use my experience to make sure the school is the best it can be.


I enjoy cooking, baking and I am also a qualified first aider with St John Ambulance. I enjoy travelling and have taken lessons in German and Russian.

Mrs A Holton  (Vice Chair)

I have lived in Quinton for 25 years with my husband and two grown up children.  I worked within the banking industry for over 30 years in many locations and roles which                   I thoroughly enjoyed.


I first got involved with World's End Nursery when my daughter began her work placement there and I helped out at fund-raising events, ironing graduation hats and gowns and supporting at Christmas assemblies.


I was asked by a member of the SLT to join the Governing Body and after speaking to the Chair, her enthusiasm inspired me and I was elected as a co-opted governor in September 2017. 


I am committed to ensuring that the children at World's End Infant & Nursery get the best education possible and that they "Reach for the stars - never stop believing!".

Mrs G Wilford  (Headteacher)
I joined the Governing Body as a Staff Governor in 2007 and, with the re-constitution, I was co-opted onto the Governing Body and now, in my role as Headteacher, I am automatically eligible to be a member of the Governing Body.


Over the years as a governor I have seen many exciting changes but the commitment to ensuring that all the children get the best education they can, and to support the school in improving even further, has remained unchanged.


Our current Governing Body is a fantastic group of people to work with; they have enthusiasm for the role and a real commitment to helping to make our school the best it can be.


One of my roles is to produce a Headteacher’s Report for the Governing Body’s half termly meetings, which gives them up-to-date information on our school: numbers of pupils on roll, SEN information, attendance, health and safety, the curriculum, parent and community activities, and staff training. My reports also cover standards in school, and an update on progress towards the objectives we have been working on in the School Development Plan.


Mr A Nath  (Co-opted)

I was approached to join the Governing body back in 2015 and have enjoyed my time learning about the school and the important role of being a Governor, overseeing the development of the school and its pupils.


I live in Quinton and work as a Pharmacist in the Lloyds Pharmacy on Faraday Avenue. I really enjoy my job helping the local community with their healthcare needs and I see my role as school Governor as another way of giving back to my area.


I have been selected as the Governor responsible for sports within the school and look forward to working with all the staff and pupils ensuring that Worlds End Infant school makes best use of the allocated Sports Premium. I am also currently on the Governor Mark committee working to ensure that the school is governed to a nationally recognised standard

Mrs M Sabwani  (Parent)

I was elected as the Parent governor for World’s End Infant & Nursery School in 2018. All of my 3 children are studying at World’s End starting from World’s End Nursery.
