Our Governors

 A very warm welcome from the Governors of Fair Field Junior School.

The Local Governing Body performs a strategic leadership role in the running of Fair Field Junior School and we work closely with the senior leadership team to ensure that the school provides the best possible education for its pupils. We act as a “critical friend”, providing both challenge and support to school leaders.

Our key responsibilities are:

  • policy development and strategic planning, including target-setting to keep up momentum on school improvement;
  • ensuring sound management and administration of the school, and ensuring that managers are equipped with relevant skills and guidance;
  • ensuring compliance with legal requirements;
  • establishing and maintaining a transparent system of prudent and effective internal control; 
  • monitoring of the school’s financial, human and other resources;
  • monitoring performance and the achievement of objectives, and ensuring that plans for improvement are acted upon;
  • helping the school be responsive to the needs of parents and the community and making it more accountable through consultation and reporting; 
  • setting the school’s standards of conduct and values;
  • assessing and managing risk. 

The Local Governing Body is split into 3 committees; the Resources Committee, the Standards and Curriculum Committee and the Personnel Committee. Each Committee meets at least once per term and the full Local Governing Body meets at least four times per year.
