Governor Welcome

On behalf of the Governing Body I welcome you to the school's website, which I hope you will find interesting.

We are a very dedicated and active Governing Body and care passionately about the Fairfield community. We are 12 volunteers representing all the school’s key stakeholders.  We are from a diverse background, including education, social care, finance, management and Health and Safety. We are all different personalities and offer varying skills and knowledge to the team.

We have 5 types of Governors making up our body;

·         parents

·         staff

·         Local Authority

·         community  

·         trust

Each type of Governor is selected or elected by the group they represent.

We work together as a group in a strategic role to oversee the direction and leadership of the School for which the Governing Body is legally accountable. We are here to give the school a strategic direction and to act as ‘a critical friend’ – helping to guide the school, improving the standard of education for all our children.

The Headteacher and her Senior Leadership Team manage the school on a day to day basis, the Governors meet termly and in small working groups as necessary to look at specific projects, developments and to monitor the work of the school.

We ensure that local and national government legislation and targets are met, that safeguarding is always at the top of the agenda, that we spend our school budget wisely and that the curriculum meets the needs of each and every child.
