St Laurence Primary is a voluntary aided Catholic school and the majority of its Governors are appointed by the Roman Catholic Diocese of East Anglia. These are `Foundation Governors' who also have a specific responsibility to protect and enhance the continuing Catholic character of the school. At least 3 Foundation Governors must be parents at the time of their appointment.
The governing body has 3 main functions:
- Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
- Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils;
- Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
The Full Governing Body meets 6 times a year. The Headteacher's role is to manage the school on a day to day basis. The Governors work closely with the Headteacher. We support and oversee her management by setting policy and monitoring its implementation.
