Our Governors

 

The Governing Body is made up of parents, staff, local authority and co-opted representatives.  The Governing Body takes a strategic role, acting as a critical friend to the school and is accountable for its decisions. It sets aims and objectives and agrees, monitors and reviews polices, targets and priorities.  


Parents wishing to put themselves forward as Governors have the opportunity to do so when a Parent Governor's term of office expires.  In the instance an election will be held, if there are more nominations than places vacant. 


Our LA Clerk to the Governors is Mrs Sandra Mabbett. You can contact her through the School Office at office@fairfield.worcs.sch.uk
