Alesa Rahman – Parent Director

Alesa joined the board of Paradigm Trust as parent director in November 2017

Her first connection with the Trust was in 2009 when her eldest daughter started in Culloden’s nursery.  Soon after Alesa was elected as parent governor, serving two terms of office before Culloden converted into an academy and the Trust was formed. 

Alesa was then involved in setting up Culloden’s Academy Council and was voted in as Chair by council members; a position which she still holds today. Over this time Alesa has worked closely with the Principal and staff, trying to improve parental engagement and responding positively to feedback received.

Alesa’s eldest daughter has since left Culloden with outstanding SATs results and credits this success down to the outstanding teaching and care that she received whilst there. Her youngest daughter is still a pupil in the school. 

Alesa has worked in East London schools for over 16 years and is currently Women’s Officer at a local Tower Hamlets’ secondary school. Not only has this experience given her an understanding of the challenges that face local children and parents, it has also shown her how the Trust’s ethos of having the highest of expectations for children and being committed to their education can dramatically change their lives.  She has seen for herself the importance of laying down a good foundation of teaching and learning at primary school which then enables children to thrive and be confident when making their transition into secondary education.
