Appointed by GB/Board
From 13th December 2021
To 12th December 2025
My name is Jan Lobley and I am a retired Executive Headteacher.
I have worked in three schools – all in Havering. I completed my teaching practice at Parklands Infant school and was offered a permanent position in Year Two. I stayed for seven years before accepting a Deputy Headship in Rainham and then a Headship at Towers Infant School in Hornchurch.
After ten years Towers ‘infant and Junior School’s federated and I became the Executive Headteacher. At this time the infant school were OFSTED rated Good and the Junior school were Satisfactory. When I retired the OFSTED ratings were Outstanding (Infants) and Good in the Junior school.
I have continued to be involved in education – working with Trainee Teachers at University of East London and doing some consultancy work in Tower Hamlets and Havering.
I believe that I understand the value of a critical friend who offers both challenge and support in order to improve the whole board effectiveness and therefore continuing to improve the outcomes for all pupils at Parklands Primary School.
I am delighted to be part of Parklands Primary School Governing Body
