Premises and facilities managers has a much more demanding role than that of the old school caretaker. Not only must schools be maintained as they always were, but new responsibilities for water (legionella disease), fire safety (including extinguisher maintenance), electrical (PAT and fixed equipment testing) and even asbestos removal in some cases are all under the remit of the PFM.
For this reason, the Southwark Headteachers Executive has formed a special group for PFMs.
Within this section of the website there will be practical advice and guidance posted, together with any news of relevance to PFMs.
There will also be regular meetings to enable you to network with PFMs from neighbouring schools and also, from time to time, to hear from experts in the field.
