Governors

Thank you for visiting the Holloway School website.

Firstly, let me introduce myself, I am Jill McLaughlin, Chair of the Islington Community Schools Federation.  

The Federation is made up of four schools: Copenhagen and Vittoria Primary Schools and Elizabeth Garrett Anderson and Holloway Secondary Schools.  Whilst each school retains its own identity and has its own Headteacher, the Federation is led by Jo Dibb, Executive Headteacher.  

Jo Dibb has been a National Leader of Education for the last 8 years and has led EGA for the past 13 years. Alongside the individual schools is the Angel Islington Teaching School Alliance, which is a wider collaboration of schools, providing training for new and existing teaching staff.

The Federation was set up in September 2018 and builds on the previous federation between EGA and Copenhagen Schools.  This formation of the wider federation is a very exciting step which will enable schools to support each other, share best practise, ideas and where appropriate, resources.  We hope that it will provide opportunities for students to meet up too, providing enhanced learning and participation opportunities. 

As we all know, school funding is under significant pressure. Whilst we did not form the Federation to achieve cost savings, we do anticipate that it will allow us to operate more efficiently over time.

I was elected as Chair in September 2018 and I am delighted to have the support of a fantastic Board of Governors. The Federation was formed by amalgamating three governing bodies, so we have a wealth of experience, along with the benefit of a fresh look for each school. 

I am supported on the Federal Governing Body by Caspar Woolley - Vice Chair, the chairs of 2 Federal Committees and the Chairs of each School Committee.  We also have a Safeguarding Lead for the Federation, who is supported by local leads in each school.  Finally, to support the work of the committees, ensuring that we have both local parent engagement and the relevant skills we need on the committees, we are also supported by a number of Associate Governors.  The full list of Governors and Committees of the Federal Governing Body is set out below.

Our Governors and Associate Governors come from a wide range of backgrounds and have many different skills and diverse experience. Our role is to set the strategic direction for all schools within the Federation and ensure that each school provides an outstanding education in a safe and secure setting for all students. 

It is a real privilege to serve on the Federal Governing Body. All the Governors take their responsibilities very seriously and we are guided by a formal Code of Practice.

We are passionate about providing a broad and inclusive curriculum with a wide variety of enrichment activities, so that whatever a students’ background, they have an opportunity to achieve without limits. 

To achieve our vision of a great education for all the young people in our schools, we need to work with our parents and carers, our staff and our neighbours. If you are interested in supporting our work, please do get in touch.
