Mr Derek Goff - Chair of Governors
I joined the Governing Body in July 2013 and have really enjoyed learning about 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 the Finance Governor, so I am able to support our staff in ensuring we make the very best of the resources we have.
Mrs Joanne Littlechild - Vice Chair & Class Governor for Squirrels
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. I bring a wealth of skills, knowledge and almost 20 years experience in marketing and communications. Since becoming a governor, I have also taken on the role of Chair of the Standards Committee, and look forward to working with the school to deliver its strategic plan
Mr Justin Taylor - Class Governor for Otters
Mrs Lisa Reynolds - Co-opted Governor and member of staff
I have worked at Fairfield for 8 years in many roles within the office team. I work closely with Governors regarding Safeguarding, Finance, Staffing, Buildings and Health & Safety. I became a member of the Governing Body in Jan 2016. My areas of responsibility are for training and development and E-safety.
Mrs Joanne Stewart - Staff Governor
I joined the Governing Body in September 2016 as a staff governor. I have worked in education for nearly 20 years during which time I have supported both children and families. I hope that, by being a Governor, I can help us to continue to be a respected and nurturing school in the wider community and to make a positive contribution in helping our school go from strength to strength.

Mr Keith Doe - Co-Opted Governor
I joined the Governing Body in September 2017 and I am keen to undertake this new role, and to put my skills and experience into helping Fairfield continue to support our pupils, parents and teachers. I have many years’ experience working in Financial, Operations and Governance roles in a variety of sectors and hope that this experience benefits the school. Having always been local and with many of my friends children having been through Fairfield, it’s a school I know well and care about.
