Working together, with Jesus beside us, to achieve our full potential.

Annual accounts and information relating to the Directors and Members are published on the Trust’s website. The link below will take you to the MAT’s governance page.

Gnosall St Lawrence CE Primary School is locally governed by a Local Governing Board (LGB).

LGBs deal with all operational matters with specific focus on Teaching and Learning, Christian distinctiveness and Health and Safety; strategic issues (including Trust wide policies) are considered by the Trust Board.

​The only LGB sub-committee in operation is the Governors’ Pay Committee which will consist of any three non-staff Governors without a conflict of interest. The LGB Pay Committee will agree a Chair for the meeting. They will consider matters relating to the pay of school staff (not including the HT or Assistant Heads (AHT)).

Trust staff pay matters (those relating to the CEO and the Director of Finance and Operations (DFO)), and leadership pay matters (HT/AHT) are considered by the Directors’ Pay Committee and is therefore not a matter for the Gnosall St Lawrence LGB.

​All our Governors have voting rights.

In addition, the CEO or any Director can attend a meeting of the Local Governing Board and will count towards the quorum and have a vote.
