Governance

Floreat Wandsworth Primary School is one of the schools belonging to the GLF Schools Trust.  Floreat Wandsworth transferred from the Floreat Education Academies Trust to the GLF Schools Trust on 1st September 2019.  In a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) the Trust remains ultimately responsible for standards and finance, however, it would be impossible for trustees to oversee everything in all schools and so key supporting roles are delegated to local school standard sboards (SSBs), which work to support the Trust in their work. The Floreat Wandsworth School Standards Board includes the Headteacher, the School BusinessManager, a GLF Education Partner, parent and community representatives, and is accountable to GLF Schools Trust.

Further details on governance at GLF Schools Trust's, including the Scheme of Delegation and Articles of Association are all available to download here.

Meet the Parent and Community Governors

Mills Brough, Chair of the Floreat Wandsworth SSB

I have been a member of the Floreat Wandsworth SSB since the school opened in 2015.  I was elected as a Parent Governor, and became Vice Chair in 2016, before taking on the position of Chair in July of 2018.  When taking on the role of Chair I also moved from being an elected parent governor to a community governor.  My husband and I have lived in Earlsfield for the last ten years and we have two sons who both attend Floreat Wandsworth.  Prior to having children, I worked as a primary school teacher for over ten years and my last role was as a Deputy Head.  As well as bringing up my family, I am committed to ensuring there is strong governance at Floreat Wandsworth. 

Harriet Johnson, Vice Chair of the Floreat Wandsworth SSB

Having been involved with Floreat since 2016 when my daughter started in Reception, and now having two children at the school, makes me feel very invested in its future. I love the vision, teaching and character learning of Floreat and am proud to be more involved through a co-opted governor role by helping develop its standing in the community, where we have lived for eight years, and to help it reach its goal of becoming an outstanding school. My career in marketing and sponsorship in the corporate world involved dealing with many senior stakeholders, governing bodies and the general public. Much of my role focused on grassroots sport, encouraging children to take part and helping communities to come together.

Ian Lewer

I have lived in Putney for 7 years and was elected to Wandsworth Council in May 2014.  During my time as a Councillor, I have sat on a variety of committees including Education & Children’s Services for 3 years. Currently I Chair the Adult Care & Health Committee. I am also a Trustee of One Trust in Tooting and A2i Dyslexia in Battersea.  I have worked in employee benefits insurance for 8 years and currently work for Legal & General as a sales and relationship manager.

Chris Stirling, Parent Governor

I was elected on to the Floreat SSB as a parent governor in September 2018. I have a son in Year 3. I am committed to seeing the school continue to succeed and improve, for the benefit of not only my own son, but also for the community as a whole. Education is priceless and one of the most important investments a parent can make in their children's future. I work as a barrister and have also served on my chambers' management committee for over 10 years. In that time, I have dealt with staff restructuring, merger negotiations, complaints policy and investigation, and staff appraisals. I hope to bring the skills I have to help the school develop and flourish.

Shama Sarwar, Parent Governor

As public policy professional with a career of over 10 years in evaluating national school intervention programmes at DfE and overseeing governance reform across central and local government whilst being Floreat mum to Nura (Y3) and Ana (Y1) I am delighted to be a parent governor. I currently work at HMRC in Strategic Policy, leading some of Covid-19 tax programme designs. My aim is to combine my professional experience and skills set with my passion as a parent, having been a local resident of 10 years and bring a more diverse, fresh perspective to the Board and contribute to the legacy of our school #inclusiveleadership.
