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 & Co-Chair of Governors
Link Governor for Physical & Mental Wellbeing Faculty Group
Link Governor for Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE)
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.

My name is Steven and I am one of the parent governors at Wallace Fields Infant School. I'm passionate about my children's education and building an open and fun environment for them to start to learn and explore the world of learning. Knowing how many doors education can open, personally and professionally, I think the early years of formal education are of paramount importance to building engagement and an inquisitive mind.
Professionally I am an HR Director at Nomura and have been lucky enough to try a variety of HR and Change Leadership roles across Financial Services for 15 years. Away from work I have two children in Hedgehog Class and Big Stars. Since their arrivals, my entire outlook on life and work has changed and I am devoted to them. We spend as much time as possible together as a family but when I do have any spare time I have a passion for gardening, I love cooking and walking / being in nature.
