Local Governing Board

Welcome to the section of the website where you can find out more about the school’s governors and the work that we do.


Wallace Fields Infant School & Nursery joined South Farnham Educational Trust (SFET)  in September 2021.  SFET is a Multi-Academy Trust created in January 2015 and is made up of 4 primary schools -  South Farnham School, Highfield South Farnham School, the Raleigh School, Wallace Fields Infant School & Nursery and also Surrey South Farnham SCITT (School-centred Initial Teacher Training) and South Farnham are a designated Teaching School Hub to deliver the new Early Career Teacher Framework (Wallace Fields Infant School & Nursery are proud to be their Epsom delivery partner).  


The Board of Directors of the Trust have delegated certain functions to be locally managed, which means that the Local Governing Board of WFIS & Nursery has general responsibility for the effective management of the school, allowing individual pupil needs to be met effectively. Local governors are able to target resources and develop the nature and character of the school to effectively meet the needs and wishes of parents, children and teachers.  To see more information about our membership, attendance and business interests, please see



Now that we are part of the South Farnham Educational Trust, we will be continually reviewing our governance arrangements in line with the Trust’s Scheme of Delegation.


Our resolute focus is always on supporting and challenging the Co Headteachers and staff to achieve the very best outcomes for all children at the Wallace Fields Infant School and Nursery, within a broad, balanced and creative curriculum. We provide a strategic view, acting as a critical friend and ensuring accountability to parents and the community for our actions and the school’s overall performance. We are committed to providing an excellent environment for pupils to enjoy during their time at our school and are ultimately responsible for the safeguarding of all pupils.
