I worked in investment management for five years before deciding to stay at home to raise my family; currently both my children are at Oldfield. Being at home gave me the opportunity to focus on what interests me most and last year I started my own interior design business.I feel the calm environment and the exemplary behaviour of the children makes Oldfield a fantastic foundation for the children.

I am an ambitious accountant, recently moved to the Ealing area, and have two children currently studying at Oldfield Primary School.From a very young age, I have always had a profound interest in strategic leadership, sustainable development, human resources management and diplomacy. Successful completion of a degree in Accounting and Finance, an MBA in Leadership and Project Management, as well as my current pursuance of a PhD programme in Sustainable Development and Diplomacy, have further reinforced my ambitions mentioned above. I have a natural desire to get the best results out of challenging circumstances, and am confident that such a quality will assist me as a parent governor to support and positively contribute to leadership of the school as part of the Governing Board's enduring strategic efforts to achieve higher standards and best value for money.

I am Chief Operating Officer at a wealth management firm in the City and I also have almost 10 years' experience as a Management Consultant. I would like to use my problem-solving skills to support the school in enabling students to have a rich educational experience.While I'm not yet a parent, I join the governing board with strong mentoring experience through the Social Mobility Foundation, the Amos Bursary and other programmes. Having grown up in five countries (India, Nigeria, France, Trinidad and UK) and attended Oxford University, I have a broad range of experience and insights in education systems which I continue to share with Oldfield Primary.

I'm an IT professional working as a Senior Engineer within the Public Transport industry (Arriva). Prior to this I was working for the European Commission in Stockholm, Sweden as an IT Consultant for 5 years. I moved to Greenford in 1988, when both of my parents were working for Tetley's Tea factory and I just started Greenford High school. During my childhood days I have witnessed this school developing from the early days to what it is now.
Both my children have been attending Oldfield Primary School since Nursery to date and now my daughter who is in year 5 and my son in year 2. As a proud parent I wish to take this opportunity to make a positive difference in the school's IT learning and be part of the school's success. With my solid IT background and analytic problem solving skills this will help and promote a fun and enjoyable IT learning platform for kids to develop confidence and explore the potential of today's IT technology.

I moved to the UK from Tanzania in 2007. I was 10 years old at the time and having experienced a certain kind of education system, I always compared the differences between the two during my school life. Since I started my career in Wealth Management at a Private Bank 3 years ago, I have been looking for ways to get more involved in schooling and of course, understand the UK education system better. This is where Oldfield comes into play. Not only am I hoping to support the school with my strong analytical, planning and problem solving skills, I am also excited to work effectively as a member of the Governing body to champion new initiatives and promote organisational culture, visions and values.?
Gemma HammoudaStaff Governor. Standard and Curriculum Committee
I have worked in Education for a number of years. I started off my career in the U.K by working in a range of schools across the South West of England including Bristol and Bath. I then travelled abroad and worked in a British International School in Cairo, Egypt. I came back to the U.K and moved to London where I have worked across different boroughs. It is my first year at Oldfield and I am looking forward to teaching Year 3. Alongside teaching Year 3, I am leading Geography and History and I am a staff Governor. I believe it is important that children are learning both inside the classroom and outside of the classroom as this supports them to have a meaningful learning experience
