By design (I'm not saying it's a good design, just that it's by design), Writer includes headers and footers on the text area:

Bug 33304 - Header / Footer should be inserted into margin, not into text body

The only way around this is to reduce the top and bottom margins to get the right distance from page border to text area. Note that while editing the page style, on the corresponding header/footer tab you can set the vertical space taken by the header/footer.
