West Lodge

Primary School

Victoria McFarland

I applied to become a 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.


My husband and I have lived in Pinner for over a decade, our younger son is at West Lodge and our older son previously  attended and is now at a local high school. 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 be a member of the governing body and I do my best to both support and be a critical friend to the school’s leadership team.
