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!

Carol Wylde

Vice Chair of Governors

I have been a Governor at the school since my eldest daughter started in Reception in 2005. Although both of my children have moved on to secondary school I am continuing in my role as a governor because I know how important the school is for the community and how important it is that the school have active governors. My background is in teaching and I currently work with schools, supporting leadership, teaching and learning. I enjoy being part of the wider school team, supporting the school to achieve their priorities and working with staff, children and the local community. There is a real mix of people on the Governing Body and everybody brings something different to the team. The governing body needs people with a range of skills. We always welcome feedback from parents and would encourage anybody considering becoming a governor to talk to one of us to find out more.

Matt Johnson

I have been a school governor for just over a year now. I have a daughter at the school and just wanted to get involved out of interest to see how the school is managed and if there is anything I can bring to the group. I have a background in conservation and livestock and not in education, so hopefully have a different perspective, one of which is a more parent than education view.

I am a new governor with 3 children, all with special needs. My youngest is at the school at the moment and my middle child is home-schooled. I am keen to help provide a safe, nurturing and rewarding environment for our current children and generations to come. Obviously I have a keen interest in special needs but have a background in business. I don't have a lot of spare time, but enjoy paper crafting and making natural body products when I can.
