Welcome to our Governors' section. 

Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.


The Governing Body exists to provide strategic oversight to the way the school is run and to be accountable for the decisions made by it. We have one over-riding purpose: to help make Fitzmaurice the best place for our children to learn.


We are comprised of 11 individuals, plus the Head Teacher representing parents, staff and members of the community. We all voluntarily give up our time to be governors.


Throughout the year we have responsibility for approving budgets, monitoring academic progress, auditing safeguarding procedures and recruiting teaching staff amongst many other things. In recent years we have also overseen the expansion of the school through the addition of 3 classrooms and group rooms and the drive to continually improve standards.


The current Chair is:


  • Kris Arnorsdottir


We are organised into 2 key committees which between them ensure that the school meets its targets and sets stretching but achievable objectives:


  • Curriculum and Standards Committee (C&S),  Chair Anna Wallace  
  • Resources Committee, Chair Philip Evans


The Full Governing Body meets 3 times a year: November, March and July.  Minutes are available on request from
