St Laurence School Academy Trust Governing Body

The school governor role is focused on school improvement. Governors are also company directors and charity trustees for the purposes of the governance of the charitable company which is the official status of the school.

The DfE Governance Competency Framework gives a practical guide to what a good governor looks like. They are committed, confident, curious, challenging, collaborative, critical and creative.

Using a regular skills audit and self-evaluation, the governing board seeks to update and renew the range of skills and diversity of experiences among its members. Through school visits, student voice, staff representation and meetings with senior leaders, the governing board is informed about the challenges facing the school and the responses that are being made to them. Via training and a commitment to enquiry and challenge, the governing board aims to be informed about and assured that the school is preparing all students for their future after their time at St Laurence, wherever that may take them.
