The Governors at St Lawrence are responsible for working with the Head and senior management team to set the strategic priorities for the school.

 

We meet twice a term – and our specialist work is carried out by three specialist committees chaired by Peter McKay - Finance, Pay and Staffing ; Graham Reilly - Curriculum and Standards; Michael Fatyga - Facilities.

 

As a Catholic school most of our Governors are Foundation governors appointed by the Diocese. 

We also have representatives from current parents; the Staff and the local authority. The Head and the parish Priest are permanent members.

 

We have specific responsibilities – some of which are to:

 

- Agree the budget for the school

- Agree the sex and relationships policy for the school.

- Appoint the head.

- Monitor the school Development plan.

 

We are a very active group – and our meetings are always well attended. We will be publishing our minutes on this site from September.

 

We will also be seeking parent volunteers to join our sub-committees – so if you are interested look out for that request in the school newsletter next year.
