Meet Our Governors

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 12 times a year. Looking at different areas target areas at each meeting.  These areas include staff recruitment, budget setting,maintenance and safety of the school premises and grounds, 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.

What do Governors do ?
 Our main role as Governors is :

  • To provide a strategic view of where the school is heading.
  • To provide support and appropriate challenge to the school.
  • To hold the school to account for the quality of the education it provides.
  • To safeguard and promote the welfare of children who are pupils at the school.

See below for a link to the 'Your School Governors' leaflet produced to tell you more about the role of Fairfield's Governors.


How to contact the Fairfield governors:
The governors are keen to hear your views and opinions of the school.  Please feel free to approach any of them either in person when they are in school,  via the school office or by email to :  governingbody@fairfield-infant.co.uk
