Governors

Welcome to the Furze Platt Primary Federation (FPPF) Governors' section.

 

The FPPF Governing Body governs Furze Platt Infant & Junior School and comprises of volunteers consisting of elected Parent and staff governors and appointed Community and LEA Governors. We meet once per term, supported by the Clerk of Governors.

 

We work in partnership with the Executive Headteacher, Heads of Schools and staff to carry out the following:

 

  • Set strategic direction for the school and contribute to the school’s improvement plan
  • Ensure accountability and monitor and evaluate school performance
  • Support the Executive Head teacher, school leaders and staff to provide an excellent education for all pupils

 

All Governors have links locally and many of us have direct links with the school as current or past parents. We come from a variety of backgrounds and professions and through our work can often offer the school a different perspective on issues.  We are a committed group who work hard to support the school and the Head Teacher as a “critical friend”.

 

Each Governor takes a lead on an area of school development and may also be responsible to evaluate progress of school development areas though a working party.

 

Governors are elected /appointed for a 4 year term. Details of all the Governors and their elected/appointed dates can be found below.

If you wish to contact any of the Governors please in the first instance contact the school office or the Excecutive Head Teacher who will be happy to take your details and arrange for the appropriate Governor to contact you.
