Governance Structure of St Lawrence C of E (aided) Primary School, Chobham

For the academic year 2021-22, the full governing body of St Lawrence C of E (aided) Primary School operates in a flat structure with all members attending 3 meetings a term. There are no formal sub committees. The governing board also meets in September of each new academic year to agree the Work Programme for the year ahead, and appoint our Chair, Vice Chair and other roles and responsibilities for the rest of the year. The minutes of all our meetings are available to view by appointment with the school office. 

We have three smaller committees:

  • Pay Committee
  • Headteacher’s Appraisal Committee
  • Pay Appeals Committee

Membership of these committees is agreed annually in the Governing Body Business Meeting in September.


Under our flat structure of governance, we do not have any Associate Members, and all serving governors have a vote.


What does a Governing Body do?

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding the Head Teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

As a Voluntary Aided school the governors are also responsible for raising 10% towards any capital spending on our school.
