Guy Fairbairn

Chair of Governors

I have been a Governor since 2011 and Chair since 2012. Although my son has now moved on to secondary school,  I am committed to continuing my involvement with the school, and ensuring that we give our children the best possible start in education. I am not from an education background, and as part of our  governing body add to the broad  range of skills and experience we have. If anyone is interested in finding out more about being a Governor, feel free to contact me via the school office; I have found it to be a rewarding and enlightening experience!

I joined the school in April 2012. When I walked through the gates, the ethos and atmosphere felt so special and remains so to this very day.

Alistair Smith

I have been a Governor at the school since March 2020 and enjoy the opportunity to help the school achieve its aims and support the local community. My background is in business, in particular research and development, and so hopefully I add some different skills and experience to the governing body. I have 2 children of pre-school age which occupy most of my spare time but also like gardening and playing euphonium in local musical ensembles.

Michael Ogbechie

I was appointed parent governor in October 2020. I have been resident in the village for over 7 years and currently have a daughter at the school and another one due to start in 2022. My professional expertise is in the learning and assessment sector and I currently work for Cambridge Assessment (a department of Cambridge University). I look forward to applying my existing capabilities to areas within the scope of the system of governance at the school.

My hobbies include relaxing with a good book (or a journal!) and occasionally pounding the dirt tracks around the village!
