Meet the Governors
Our Governors are representatives of the parents, school staff and the local community. They meet every half term as a whole Governing Board.
The Governors are responsible for the overall policies of the school, making key appointments, monitoring the running of the school and having overall control of the budget.
Governors have a duty to regularly review the way in which the school is organised, monitor its achievements and to contribute to the development of the school. Governors work in partnership with the Head Teacher in every aspect of the school’s life.
Please see details of our Members of the Governing Board below:
Alice Feldwick – Co-opted Governor & Vice Chair of Governors
Link Governor for Physical & Mental Wellbeing Faculty Group
Lead Equality & Diversity Governor
Health Schools Governor
I am very excited to begin my role as governor at Wallace Fields Infant School. I have always been passionate about children’s education, particularly in early years as I believe these are the most important years in helping children build a foundation for their future. I am looking forward to working with a fantastic governing board and to help support the staff and leadership team at the school. I have been working in Corporate Finance for over ten years and hope to bring my experience working in the private sector to use in this role. In my spare time I try to stay afloat on managing our busy household. I live in Epsom with my husband and two young children who both attend Wallace Fields Infant school. Coming from a large family, we enjoy spending our weekend with our extended family and friends. In my spare time I enjoy reading and exercising.

Ilinka Budds – Co-opted Governor
Link Governor for STEM (Shared)
I am delighted to be a Governor for Wallace Fields Infant School. In my day-to-day job, I'm currently Go-To-Market Lead for Streaming TV for Europe at Amazon. I have 20+ years of work experience in media and tech companies, having previously worked at Google and Microsoft. My experience spans across various areas including strategy & operations, change management, program management and training programs. I have MBA and MSc in International Business Management, BSc in International Marketing and Trade, and I'm also a Qualified Teacher - something that I truly enjoyed doing and is one of the reasons why I decided to join the Governors team at WFIS. I'm excited to be part of this Governors team for a school that focusses on building strong values, wellbeing, creativity and overall development in addition to education, and provides inclusive environment for children but also for its teachers and employees. I was born in former Yugoslavia (Macedonia), and have lived between London and Dublin since 1999. We moved from central London to Surrey 2 years ago and we enjoy the green parks, the beautiful scenery and friendly neighbourhoods in the area. In my spare time I enjoy gardening, cooking, travelling and looking after my two cats.
