Governor Profiles

Governors are volunteers from the local community.  Here is some additional information about each of our Governors.

Mrs Jenny Capstick MBE - Chair of Governors

Coming soon . . . 

Miss Helen Willis - Headteacher

I have worked at Fairholme Primary School since September 2000.  I started as a year 1 class teacher and over the years I have worked in many year groups across the school.  In October 2013 I was fortunate enough to be appointed as the Headteacher.  I thoroughly enjoy working at Fairholme Primary School and believe that it is our responsibility to ensure that all children access a broad and balanced curriculum which caters for everyone's needs.

Ms Doris Turner - Vice Chair of Governors

I have always had an interest in the education of children and have served as a governor for over 40 years.  I am passionate about the local community and have supported many organisations over the years including The Girl Guides, Help the Aged, Doctor Barnardo etc.

Miss Yvonne Whittington - Staff Governor

I am a mother of one and my daughter attended Fairholme Primary School which is why I became involved in the school.  I first started as a volunteer listening to Years 5 and 6 read. 

I became a Governor as I believe that education is very important to all children and that if they learn to love education in primary school they will then carry that through to secondary school, college and even university.  All children deserve the best education possible and we need to encourage them to dream big because they are the future for Great Britain.

Ms Asma Bawa - Parent Governor

I became a governor to be more involved in supporting the school my daughter attends. As a governor I have gained more knowledge about what is expected of schools today and have valued the opportunity to contribute the parent viewpoint to the Governing Body. My participation with a wide range of school activities has enabled me to appreciate the great work the school does for all our children. I am passionate about working for the best education for all children and would love to continue serving the school community as a parent governor. 

Mrs Sarah Byrne - Co-opted Governor

I believe Fairholme to be the best school for my children; the school has been a large part of our lives. With this in mind I want to give something back to school. So by applying to be parent governor I want to help support and challenge Fairholme to be the best that it can be. I hope some of my attributes that I bring can be used to help the school and committee. I work currently with children and vulnerable adults, I’m fair and hardworking. Fairholme School is key to our community and I am willing to listen and be proactive in the position to ensure I’m acting in the best interest of the children that attend Fairholme.

Mrs Laura Buchanan - Co-opted Governor
