Our Staff and Governors.
The Governing Body is responsible for the strategic leadership of the school in partnership with the Headteacher, Senior Leadership Team (SLT) and Chapel St Community Schools Trust. The Governing Body also focuses specifically on the progress the school is making on each of its priorities and those identified by Ofsted.
Each individual Governor takes responsibility for a different aspect of the school and its development. Many of these are specifically linked to part of the school improvement plan, although some sit outside of that. Each Governor will visit the school at least twice a term to assess how well the school is progressing in each area, measured against the relevant targets and indicators. They then report back to the full Governing Body who have the opportunity to ask questions and provide challenge.

Andrew Tucker – Chair of Governors
Andrew is the husband of Jane and father of Sophie and Hannah who attend Park Community School. He took over as Chair shortly after his children joined the school, and chose Park because of its commitment to character development, focus on the community and broadly Christian ethos. Andrew has previously been a Chair of Governors at a primary school in Lewisham where they moved from special measures to outstanding in 2 years.
He is a senior civil servant currently working on the implications of the Brexit vote, but much prefers making use of his football coaching qualifications having previously managed and coached semi-professional teams as well as various junior teams.
He has volunteered with various youth organisations and delivers talks on character development, the formation of children and various other topics related to parenting and faith to a variety of audiences. He is a committed Catholic and avid fan of Dulwich Hamlet Football Club and will have failed as a parent if at least one of these isn’t passed on to his children!
Hannah is a corporate lawyer in the City, having first graduated from the University of Cambridge with a degree in German, French and linguistics. Most of the things she loves in life, she was introduced to at primary school: friendships, music, sport, art and the rewards of hard work. She believes that a great school is a great start in life and wants more people to really enjoy their education.
Tolu Odugbemi is a father of two children, one of whom attends Park Community School. He is passionate about helping children grow and flourish through the creative expression of their talents and interests. He has served as a youth worker for the Church of England parish in Morden and now leads the children’s Sunday school program at his church, St Sepulchre’s without Newgate, a C of E church in the heart of the City of London. He brings his experience in engineering, operations management and management consulting to support the work of the school.
Aredi is a highly experienced Project Director and has led the implementation of over 20 new academy and free schools for several Academy Trusts, including with Chapel Street. She brings significant experience of the development of new school sites and buildings.
As Headteacher of the school Bella reports into the Local Governing Body and sits on the governing body by virtue of her appointment.
I have recently become a Community Governor for Park Community School. I believe in the importance of the relationship between schools and local organisations, and want to see more cooperation and action when it comes to the organisations and businesses that operate in connection with our School. Personally, I am part of a church that has started running money courses and Saturday Kids Cinemas for the school, and I believe that that the opportunities that good community relationships bring to the school can be life changing.
I am a proud mum of Aisha in Year 1 and have been a parent governor for a year. I sit on the Standards, Teaching and Learning Sub Commitee. I am a self-employed driving instructor but my background spans back to working as a teacher with 3-7 year olds in Latvia. I have a degree in Education from Goldsmith College University of London and have always been very passionate about young children’s education, especially child-centered education. I am a very positive person who has a cheery demeanour and a ready smile and am always ready to have a chat at the school gates or PTFA coffee mornings! I wish to see our school continue to grow as a one big family, and to become an outstanding and much-loved school in the local community.
Manuj recently joined the team as a Community Governor and chairs the Finance Committee. He is a Chartered Management Accountant working in Surrey. A father of 3 children, he is drawn to the ethos and the potential of the school; the drive for it to be an integral part of the community and to provide a stimulating and fun environment for students.
The Governing Body’s registered office is 21, Crown Lane, Morden SM4 5BY.
Our most important partnership is with parents who choose Park Community School for their child’s primary education. We are already grateful for the many messages of support we have received from local parents excited by the development of a new school and look forward to working together for the good of children and the local community.
“Having a young child with another on the way, we started to consider the options for their education over the last few months. We were excited to hear about Park Community School and contacted them to register our interest after finding out as much as we could online. We want our children to go to a school where we can take an active part in their education and our Christian values are supported. We really believe that Park School will be the right place for them.” Martin & Eileen Geoghegan
