Our Governors

Mrs Jo Cheshire - Chair of Governors  &  Class Governor for Owls   

"I have been a Governor at Fairfield since November 2010; I have been the Training Liaison Governor and the Chair of Resources Committee. In September 2014 I was elected to act as Chair of Governors and I look forward to working closely with all Governors, staff and parents in this role.  The Chair mostly acts as any other governor although liaises more closely and frequently with the Headteacher. The Chair also represents and co-ordinates the work of the governing body and has the casting vote if ever required".  

Mr Andrew Frazer  - Class Governor for Hedgehogs
“I’m proud to have supported the staff and children at Fairfield Infant School since March 2005 in my role as a governor.  I am currently a member of the Standards Committee and the Headteacher performance panel.  I support the school with Safeguarding and Teaching & Learning. I have class links with Hedgehogs.  In the past, I have enjoyed contributing in a number of roles on the governing body such as Chair and a member of the Resources Committee .  I can definitely recommend giving some time to support the school by being a governor; it’s a rewarding role and great to be part of a supportive learning community.”

Mr Derek Goff  - Vice Chair of Governors & Class Governor for Badgers                      
"I joined the Governing Body in July 2013 and have really enjoyed learning the role, and how I can put my best skills and experience into helping Fairfield continue to support our children, parents and teachers. I have many years experience working in Human Resources, Recruitment and Finance. I am a Training Manager for a local company and therefore love learning and education. I am Chair of the Resources Committee and I am also the Finance Governor, so I am able to support our staff in ensuring we make the very best of the resources we have."


Mrs Sue Holding - Health and safety Governor & Class Governor for Foxes
"I have been a Governor at Fairfield since September 2006. I aim to support the staff in their efforts to ensure that the children are safe, happy and achieving to the best of their abilities.

Ms Heather Cracknell - Chair of Resources Committee & Class Governor for Woodpeckers

I joined the Governing Body in November 2016 as a parent governor. As well as having a child at the school, I also met the communications skills shortage the Governing Body were recruiting for at that time.
