Our Governing Body at work

Our Governing Body at work 1

Structure of FGB 2018-2019


Welcome to our Governor's section


Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.  We have also provided a Register of Governor interests for your information.

The Governors at St Lawrence, chaired by Michael Fatyga, are responsible for working with the Headteacher 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 two committees chaired by Christiana Ugowe - Resources Committee and Graham Reilly - Curriculum and Standards.


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

We also have representatives from parents, 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.


Michael Fatyga can be contacted via our school address.

Governors have to sign a disqualification form. (see example below)
