Welcome to our Governors’ section.
Fairfield's governing body is made up of representatives of staff, parents and members of the local community. This diversity helps to ensure the school benefits from a wide range of skills, interests and experiences.
The governing body meets six times a year. In addition, two smaller groups of governor committees have been set up to look at specific areas. The Resources Committee looks at areas such as staff recruitment, budget setting and matters relating to the maintenance and safety of the school premises and grounds. The Standards Committee looks specifically at teaching, learning and attainment. Each governor also takes a special interest in a particular area of the curriculum and meets with the teacher who is responsible for that curriculum area.
Every class has their own nominated governor to share their learning with, for example through visits, letters and inviting them to special class and school events.
