Pratts Bottom Primary School


Governing Body

Mr Brian Ford
Chair of Governors & Parent Governor 

I have lived in the Borough of Bromley since 2008 and am relishing the opportunity to serve as a Governor, as I have two children attending Pratts Bottom Primary School. Being involved in supporting the school from a strategic perspective is something I am looking forward to. I am grateful to be able to help the school that provides our children and community with key core values.

Mrs Sophie Perez
Staff Governor

I have worked at Pratts Bottom for seven years now and have thoroughly enjoyed my time so far. There is such a wonderful community here and the children are so supportive of one other. When the opportunity arose to be become a staff governor, I jumped at the chance. I look forward to helping the school grow even further and continuing to provide all the opportunities we can for the children.

Reverend Susan Atkinson-Jones
Co-Opted Governor

As a Vicar I have always focussed on links between the church and schools in the community as I believe that by working together we can improve life for those within the communities we serve.

I am grateful for the opportunity to be a co-opted Governor at Pratts Bottom Primary School as I hope the skills I have developed over the years will be of benefit in the ongoing development of the school. I look forward to working as a part of a team as we seek to provide opportunities for the school to grow in strength and for the children to attain their fullest potential. ​

Mr Chitranga Diyasena
Co-opted Governor

I have been working in various parts of the world for more than thirty years. During my stay in Malawi, Central Africa, I served as a parent governor in the governing board of Hillview Primary School, an international primary school, where my daughter started her education. I enjoyed that role and worked with management to improve schooling experiences for young children.

It is my belief that I can share my knowledge and experience with Pratts Bottom Primary School to enhance its strategic goals.

I wanted to become more involved in working towards helping children achieve their full potential. I believe Pratts Bottom offers the environment to achieve this. I am committed to working with the School to add value where I can and specifically with the Resources Committee.

Mr Harinath Krishnakumar
Co-opted Governor

I moved to Orpington two years ago and have 2 children who attend another SOLA school. I have many years of IT experience with a strong focus on strategy and governance. I have worked across India and UK and have knowledge of both the countries’ education systems. I strongly believe in educating children and look forward to serving the school.​
