Meet the Governors

Louise Page

My name is Louise Page. I graduated as a teacher with a first class honours degree in 1991. Prior to becoming a Headteacher, I had been a Deputy for a total of 8 years in two different schools; a small one form entry school and a large three form entry primary school in Coventry. Following completion of the National Primary Qualification for Headteachers, I became Headteacher here at St Saviour’s C of E Primary.

My priority is to ensure that our children have the best education possible and all of them make fantastic progress. I want all our children to become well-rounded citizens of tomorrow and believe that we must give them every opportunity to develop their sense of social, spiritual and moral responsibility.

Over the years, I have been on the Governing Body of a number of schools, both as a staff governor and a community governor. The role has changed significantly over the years, with the growing importance of the role governors’ play in setting the strategic direction of the school, along with ensuring correct financial management and providing challenge to the leadership team.

Together with the Governing Body, as your Headteacher I will provide clear direction for the school and demonstrate commitment, ideas and energy alongside organisational and management responsibilities.


Fr. Alan Thompson

Being born close to St. Andrew's football stadium, I have the honour of calling myself: ‘a Brummie Born and Bred’. As an avid Birmingham City FC supporter, the place has, over the years, brought me both sorrow and joy. Before becoming a priest, I worked in manufacturing, supplying plastic injection mouldings to many of the world’s leading automotive companies.

In 2010, I became the vicar of St Mark's, along with St Saviour’s here in Saltley. I then joined St Saviour’s C of E Primary school as a governor, where I am now fortunate to be the Chair of Governors. My time in both Washwood Health and Saltley has been enjoyable but not without challenge. Our local area has a wonderful and unique mix of cultures, people and stories, which makes it an exciting and exhilarating place to minister and to be part of the school’s community.

As part of my role, I work with the Head to promote and maintain high standards of education for the children in our care and ensure that the governing body, here at St. Saviour’s school, sets a clear vision, ethos and strategic direction.

Rema Begum

I have been a parent governor for about 2 years now. The school is very endearing to my family as we have been associated with it for about 22 years. My own children have been attending since 2007 and at present 3 of them attend. I am a full-time mum and work part-time as an ESOL tutor and as a parent/toddler group co-ordinator at Adderley children’s centre. My previous roles were as a tribunal clerk for the Ministry of Justice and as an adjudicator for the Department of Works & Pensions. These roles have given me the opportunity to meet and work with people from all walks of life and communities. Dealing with their issues and finding the best way to solve problems has provided me with invaluable experience in my role as a parent governor.

I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Applied Social Science and to enhance my prospects career wise as a parent governor I completed a child care course in 2016. I want to help the school provide the best possible education and outcomes for all the children and get our school back to its ‘Outstanding’ rating. 

Jackie White

Prior to retiring, I was the Head teacher at Adderley Children’s Centre for 10 years. I have worked passionately in the early year’s sector for 40 years. My posts during this period have included working as a teacher in nursery and primary school settings; a deputy head teacher in an integrated early years centre and a lecturer in further and higher education in Coventry. Since 2001, I worked in Birmingham as a head teacher of three nursery schools and children’s centres. My early year’s background ensures an extensive knowledge of children’s early leaning and development, their starting points and the next stages of their educational journey. I have significant leadership experience and was a National Leader in Education, this work extended my role into primary school settings.

I have always been keen to develop strong links with the local primary schools. St. Saviour's is a well-respected school within the Saltley area of Birmingham and many of the children who have attended Adderley Children’s Centre transfer to this primary school. When the opportunity to become a Governor at St. Saviour's arose, I was delighted to be accepted onto the board.

I look forward to supporting Head teacher Louise Page and the other committed governors to ensure the school’s successful journey.

Kamran Hussain

My name is Kamran Hussain and I am currently the Staff Governor at St Saviour’s.  I graduated in 2007 with a degree in Media Journalism. 

Prior to becoming a teacher, I worked within the print media industry for several years as a freelance journalist.  My journey into the world of teaching began when I qualified as a teacher by completing my PGCE in 2011.  Soon after, I joined St Saviour’s as a newly qualified teacher and have been here ever since. Following the completion of my NQT year, I was given the opportunity to teach in Year 6.  A few successful years later, I gained the role of TLR and I am enjoying the challenge. 

Being a Staff Governor enables me to play a greater part in ensuring that each and every child in our school receives the very best education possible. I have the opportunity to make a difference, not only for children in school now, but for children in years to come.


Malik Qasam

Both myself and my siblings attended St. Saviour’s C of E Primary school.  Currently my boys are also here, so it's very much a family school for us.  I am honoured to be part of the Governing Body so that I can give back to the school that made me.

My background is that I graduated with a Masters in Business & IT and have been working in the IT industry for over a decade. During this time, I have worked across many sectors including working with the DFE and ESFA as well as OFQUAL.

I have a good understanding of some of the 'inner workings' of the education system, which I hope will help towards resolving issues, making the school more efficient in delivering learning objectives. Achieving this alongside staying true to its ethos of being a place of ‘love, peace and safety’.

I am a Parent Governor here. I have a legal background which includes having worked on matters relating to childcare law. I also have a genuine interest in promoting the welfare of children. I chose to be a parent governor so that I could have the opportunity to be involved in further improving education for all pupils. I strongly believe that parental involvement and active participation from parents or carers helps create a more positive experience both inside and outside the classroom- it also encourages children to reach their full potential. 

As a parent governor, I aim to combine my professional skills with my passion for achieving excellence to make a difference to the lives of children. I look forward to working with the school to maintain the high standards that this small, hard-working and friendly school has.
