Co-opted Governor 

Claire Furneaux (parent at New Fosseway)

I have been a governor at New Fosseway since October 2016 after my daughter joined the school the previous month.  I am very keen on being part of the school team and doing my part to help support the staff and pupils to achieve the very best possible during their time at New Fosseway.  My husband and I ran a multimedia company for 10 years before specialising in the investigation of computer fraud.  I am currently serving as Health and Safety Governor and look forward to seeing the school continue to improve and work together with the wider community to achieve an outstanding provision.  I'm a keen, but not very productive gardener and spend a lot of time doing volunteer work in the community.
