I have been a parent governor since November 2013 and now have two children at the school.  It has been a great experience and I have learnt a lot about what it takes to run such a successful school.

I am a retailer by profession, working in blue chip organisations in their buying and selling divisions.  I use this experience to help think about the school budget and how we can use our scarce resources to their best effect.  I also have experience in managing large teams of people and am keen that we create a great working environment at Courtland.

Parag Vaghjiani– Vice Chair of Governors

Mr P Vaghjiani(1)

My name is Parag Vaghjiani, and I am Vice-Chair of the Governing Body. I have two children at Courtland Primary School. I have worked in the Civil Service for nearly 20 years, having numerous roles across Government, most of them in Department for Education. I have worked at No10 in the policy unit for the Prime Minister, and I am currently working in HM Treasury. I have a broad array of skills, including in finance, leadership and management.

I have been a Governor at Courtland since 2007, initially as a Parent Governor but now as a Community Governor. I have lived in Mill Hill most of my life and serving as a Governor gives me an excellent way of involving myself in the local community and in education in particular.

Professionally, I am a Chartered Accountant specialising in tax, mostly working within businesses to support compliance, minimise risk and enhance value for a range of stakeholders. I use this commercial experience within Courtland by serving on the General Purpose sub-committee which reviews budgets and financial processes.

I enjoy running, squash and tennis

Naser Godarzi - Parent Governor

Naser(1)

My name is Naser Godarzi. I was elected as parent governor in 2019. I have two children in the school. It is great to be able to help this great school to run successfully.
I’m a dentist by profession and have over 20 years of experience in healthcare. I have my own clinic and am used to day to day difficulties of running a business. Working and caring for people has always been the central point of my work. So when the opportunity came to join the governing body,  it was an easy choice.
