West Lodge

Primary School

Victoria McFarland

I applied to become a parent governor because I want West Lodge to be as successful as possible in developing all the children to fulfil their potential, not just academically but as balanced and fulfilled young people, with particular focus on those who face barriers to education.


My husband and I have lived in Pinner for over a decade, our son is at West Lodge and we hope our younger son will join the school when he is old enough. I work in Human Resources which gives me insight into a number of areas relevant for the parent governor role including assessment, recruitment, organisation development, and diversity and inclusion, as well as broader areas such as stakeholder management, people management and budgets.


I am proud to join the governing body and I will do my best to both support and be a critical friend to the school’s leadership team.
