Welcome to

St Lawrence

Catholic Primary School

"Our school is a place where we all come together as one community to learn, have fun and make lasting friendships all under God's love and care."

Our Governing Board

The Governors at St Lawrence Catholic Primary School, chaired by Michael Fatyga, are responsible for working with the Headteacher and senior management team to set the strategic priorities for the school. 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 Headteacher and the parish Priest are permanent members.

 

We have specific responsibilities - some of which are to:

 *  Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction

 *  Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils

 *  Holding executive leaders to account for the effective and efficient performance management of staff

 *  Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent

 *  Ensuring admission arrangements are fair and transparent, admission decisions are open and fair, 

     and appeals are in accordance with the school admission code.  

 

We are a very active group and our meetings are always well attended. We will  be seeking parent volunteers to join our sub-committees, so if you are interested look out for that request in the school newsletter. Governors have to declare annually if they have any business interests with companies which may have dealings with the school and sign a disqualification form. (No Governors currently have any business interests which could disqualify them) 

Please find detailed below how our Governing Board is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.  

 

 

Michael Fatyga can be contacted via our school office.
